We had a group of 17 including 8 vegetarians so we made a reservation and sent in our food order a day ahead. They had a delicious Vegan Wellington. We were served soon after we got there.. Some of the group had ordered a salad...with falafel. When they started eating, they tasted chicken.. Upon questioning the server, we were told they didn't have falafel so they substituted the falafel with vegan chicken! They did not think they needed to tell us before doing this.More
We had a pre-set 2 course dinner where we could choose any starter and main. After being led to our table we were forgotten for 20minutes until a nice waitress took care of us. We ordered the lobster soup and my son the charcuterie for...starters. Nothing wrong with the charcuterie, but the lobster soup is definitely too milky and not creamy as the menu suggested. The milk overtakes any flavor despite having nice chunks of lobster in it. The waitress noticed my disappointment an d suggested a compensation, which was very nice. For mains my son had an above average burger, while I we t for the lamb fillet. The lamb was unfortunately slightly overdone and therefore a bit dry, the portion was also rather small (maybe this was not a disadvantage). Overall one of the less favorable food experiences for us in Iceland despite the nice waitress which earned the Location my third star (otherwise 2)More
Standard menu for Iceland with slightly higher pricing. The Bistro was busy since there's not many restaurants in this area, perhaps less than usual due to covid. Food was overall good but Arctic char portions were pretty meager.
While we liked the food, what made the experience for us was the exceptional care taken by our waitress Monica. She was very friendly and fill of facts about the local food, drink and local activities. We really enjoyed ourselves.
With high expectations for the bistro and....it stood tall and rocked. Amazing lamb and beef though it was slightly under cooked but had great flavor. The desserts were great and the drinks....I got the biggest mojito ever and the taste was amazing and I am...still slurp slurp :)More
