ABOUT JÓMFRÚIN

Welcome to Jómfrúin

Jómfrúin offers a great selection of Danish Smørrebrød along with Danish and Scandinavian main courses.  Jómfrúin has been open for 22 years and has over that period built up a big group of regular guests.

Jakob Jakobsson is the founder of Jómfrúin and the first man in the world to graduate as a “smørrebrødsjomfru” from the world-renowned restaurant owned by Ida Davidsen, the heir of Oscar Davidsen smørrebrød-restaurant in Copenhagen.

Jakob’s son, Jakob jr, is now the manager of Jómfrúin and has been from the year 2015 after having been working with the company since 2003.

Jómfrúin is located in Lækjargata 4, the heart of Reykjavík centrum. Behind the restaurant is a square where outdoor seating is ideal for days of good weather.

Velbekomme!

What do people say about Jómfrúin?

“So much fun + schnapps”

“Great service and interesting dishes. The Norwegian Aquavit is very potent. Anyway, the food was great and we floated back to the hotel, full to the brim.”

“One of a kind in Iceland”

“The only authentic and real open sandwich place in Iceland. Has several excellent standard meals that have been on the menu for 25+ years.”

Ice Trotter

Absolutely incredible

“Wow! This busy, delicious spot is not to be missed! You can order half-plates, better to sample the incredible herrings, pates, cheeses, and everything Icelandic. Super-friendly staff and a full bar complete the picture.”
