The day before, we found out about the Perlan – The Pearl, which was one of Reykjavik’s finest restaurants, perched on top of a set of geothermal hot water tanks – so the hot water supply of the city provides a foundation for one of the best views of the city.

2. The Cocktail Lounge.  When you arrive at the top level of the Pearl, you are ushered into the cocktail welcoming lounge, where you order your first drink and your meal.

3. Reykjavik from the Pearl. The beauty of being in a revolving restaurant at the top of the hot water supply of a city means we got panoramic views all night.

4. Whale Carpaccio.  It’s a very Green nation, Iceland, with its green energy and other environmentally friendly innovations. The nation, though, does still serve whale meat. So, I ordered the whale carpaccio – even though the actual whale portions were tiny. It’s a rather unremarkable meat.

5. Dinners Over Reykjavik.  The night was beautiful, the restaurant beautiful, the service some of the best we’ve experienced and the food was magnificent – as good as any one hat restaurant we have been to in Sydney, with comparable prices.  Few, though, were as photographable as this one.
