Chef Johann Helgi Johannsson and his wife Ragnheidur Helen Edvardsdottir own and manage Resto. Johann has built up a great reputation for quality cooking in other restaurants in Reykjavik so they decided to follow their dreams and open their own restaurant. The atmosphere is friendly and there is much effort put into the food.

Been to Resto number of times. Clearly in good hands by the owner. Service is nice and as customer you get bred on the table complimentary. Most of the time I look for fish, any fish of the day is a good choice. They also...More
On our last night in Iceland, we chose Resto for our final dinner. Everything was fantastic— a great choice for an upsacle dinner. We couldn’t decide between the appetizers, so ordered 4 of them between the two of us! Along with entrees and dessert, 1beer,...More
Our best meal in Reykjavík! Small place, tucked away. If you are dining here, you likely arrived intentionally and you’ll be glad you did. Family-owned, quality and care in the preparation of the food is immediately apparent. We opted for the five-course set menu and...More
