Jómfrúin's Menu

Menu in Print

Jómfrúin

It all began in 1888 with Oscars Davidsen’s highly praised smørrebrød restaurant in Copenhagen.

Today, in Reykjavík, “Jómfrúin” stands for the best in Danish smørrebrød. An unbroken tradition of quality and Danish culinary culture for the past 100 years. Essentially an open-faced sandwich usually featuring rye sourdough bread, smørrebrød presents different combinations of seafood, meat, vegetables and condiments, and is typically enjoyed with a cold local beer and snaps (aquavit). Enjoy!

Velbekomme!

Luxury platter

Our chefs have carefully chosen a variety of delicacies for the Luxury Platter. We recommend that you start with the herring and finish with the blue cheese but it’s all up to you, of course. However, for a true smørrebrød experience we advise you to have one (or two) of our delicious snaps to go with it.
