Reykjavik’s Old Harbour is fast becoming one of the most vibrant quarters in the city, with restaurants, cafés and shops taking over abandoned warehouses and fisherman’s huts. Fully embracing its rustic dockside setting, Kopar Restaurant is the place to go to savour innovative takes on classic Icelandic cuisine. “We wanted to give the restaurant a name that didn’t immediately tell you what kind of restaurant it is. We thought that Kopar, which means copper, was appropriate, because it keeps with the style of the rustic and charming old harbour,” explains Ásta Gudrún Óskarsdóttir, owner and general manager.
