Our Lamb Partners

The close knitted relationship between farmers and restaurant owners is a key factor in maintaining the quality and integrity of the Icelandic lamb. Our restaurant partners offer only quality Icelandic Lamb, celebrating the diversity and uniqueness of Icelandic Lamb meat. The distinctive taste is a result of the wild pastures; the grass and the aromatic and spicy herbs on which the lambs graze.

In April each year, the Icelandic Lamb marketing board awards 15-20 restaurant partners with the Icelandic Lamb Award of Excellence. Even though they differ in culinary style and type, the awarded restaurants all offer high quality Icelandic lamb. Among this year’s awardees are fine dining restaurant Grillið, and Lamb Street Food—two completely different restaurants that both offer an amazing Icelandic Lamb experience. Icelandic Lamb now has created an interactive map featuring all their restaurant partners, making it easier for you to enjoy Icelandic lamb while travelling in Iceland. There, you can look through the selection of restaurants while planning your round trip, or simply use the map to locate the 2019 Award of Excellence winners.
