Surprise and seductive are the keywords at the bar. Traditional cocktails meet new waves of the cocktail world. You can enjoy a nice drink on our terrace by the harbour at the happy hour or sit outside after a nice dinner with coffee and cognac. If the weather is not cooperative we have heating lamps. The pride of the bar is the Icelandic fisherman’s Collection, a wall with an incredible selection of cognac and whiskey.
Experience of restaurants is put together of different things. Of course the food is the most important, but service, company and environment is also very important. Kopar is influenced by its environments. The old harbour, the ships, the vibrant city centre, old and new in a surprising mix.
What makes Kopar special are the exciting ingredients and the variety of dishes. On the menu, new and old methods and recipes meet, traditional ingredients and surprising ones. Kopar is for example the first restaurant in Reykjavík to serve Icelandic rock crab. Kopar’s brasserie-dishes give our guests the opportunity to explore the world of food in one night for a reasonable price. The brasserie-dishes are small dishes that are a delicious add-on to traditional courses.

Reykjavík is a fishing village. Everything is full of life by the old harbour. In the morning the fishermen go to sea and return later in the day with their catch of the day. As you stand on the pier you can feel the history of Reykjavík and watch the harbour life, the fishermen, people walking and enjoying life or young kids with their rods trying to catch some fish.
The fresh and energetic atmosphere of the old harbour is part of the experience when you dine at Kopar.
