Our Hilton Hotel restaurant is Michelin Rated and doesn't even lower itself to post prices. Fresco is a mere (long) block away (turn right out the main entrance and walk straight ahead to the next building) and prepares salads (and wraps) in front of you...and offers healthy alternatives to the meals often consumed on vacations. Food, in general, and meals, in specific, in Iceland are astronomical. A $15 salad is a bargain. Don't count on table service. You're on your own after you carry your selection to your chosen table. But that's a small price to pay for a quality salad (sorry for the pun)! Fresco closes at 21:00 (9:00pm) - so include that in your plans.More

This was such a nice find after days of eating a lot of junk. The salad was a good size, and fresh and delicious.

I really enjoyed my chicken salad. Well dressed and delicious. 15usd for my salad but it was lunch and i didn’t even eat dinner cause i was still full.

Two of us shared a salad here. Staff accommodated giving us two bowls. Plenty of fresh and wholesome food. Washed down with tap water. This meant £12 for a meal for two which was tasty and welcome in an expensive area.

Reasonably priced for Iceland. Very convenient for people staying at the Hilton Nordic. I did the self choice option where I picked what I wanted. The staff patiently answered my many questions. Great variety of ingredients and great variety of salad dressings. I got the...chicken and then added a hard boiled egg for extra protein. I will probably be back later this week. Good choice when coming back from a day trip as you can take it back to hotel or sit in to eat.More

LOVE this place. Such a great idea - I wish they did this local to where I live. Any kind of salad you can think of, any ingredients and any combination, any dressing - it's all there for you to have. They have an extensive...menu of set salads, which you can alter, add to or tweak to make into your ideal salad, or you can simply create your own. All fresh and speedily prepared right in front of your eyes - utterly delicious! Eat in or take away options. Must visit!!More

Good & tasty salads, you can decide what you want to add/remove in each of them. Sometime you need wait for staff and they pretend to be deaf, but most of time it's ok. Last time I took tex mex and it's was ok.

Wound up having dinner here twice after arriving back at our hotel late after tours. A big variety of different salads, which you can also have as wraps. I had the BLT pasta salad one night, and the chicken caesar wrap another. They also offered...a build-your-own salad if you prefer.More

Nothing special. Another over priced salad bar. They got rid of the kale. I didn't add any meat and it cost 1630kr.

Chill atmosphere, very casual. Huge variety of salads, with or without meat. I recommend the Fresco Oriental with Soy-Ginger dressing.
