Food was ok but not great. But our experience was absolutely terrible because of the service. Was inattentive, discourteous and careless. Not a good showing for the city.

I can't sat enough about this place. We stopped for happy hour, then stayed for dinner. The drinks were fab, the food (we had lamb and fish of the day) was delicious and very generous with portions and the staff were so helpful. If you...have a chance pop in!More

I ate here twice across 2 months. The first time I happened to wander in and the second time I went there deliberately because I enjoyed the food there the first visit. The lamb is definitely a good choice and very filling. The second time...I had lasagne, which was fine but not the best ever. It was a little dry and spicy but with the side salad and garlic bread it came with it was still really enjoyable. The staff is friendly and the place itself is really pretty! I ate here alone twice and both times the staff talked to me a little bit which was nice.More

Friendly, attentive service, well prepared vegetarian-friendly entrees, and smart interiors - these define Sólon Bistro. Except for the annoying background music (why do restaurants everywhere subject us to music these days?), our experience here was top notch.

We have been twice guests at this lovely restaurant while we've been around Iceland for two weeks. The first time we decided to try Solon since the reviews were really good. The second time we decided ourselves to come back since the first time had...been simply so good! The lamb is amazing as well as the steak! Just delicious! 5 stars :) You can't miss Solon if you are in town and you are hungry!More

Very pleasant bistro right on the main road. The choices etc typical of the area but all well presented and service with a smile. Worth a stop off at any time of day. Seems to be pretty popular. The staff are young and efficient. Will...returnMore

The place was cozy and bright without being too bright. One waiter was skilled, young, sweet and very smiling...and then there were three bad ones. Fortunately, she was the one we had the most. The man was nothing short of wonderful, unfortunately the dessert I...wanted I couldn't get but got another one which was good.More
