Q: When dining in a more upscale restaurant in Reykjavík, is particular attire required?

A: No, Icelanders are not particularly strict on dress-codes. Think ‘casual but smart’ when dining at upscale restaurants. All restaurants will serve you, regardless of your fashion, but you might feel out of place wearing outdoor clothing or ripped jeans to dinner at Reykjavík’s more fashionable restaurants.
