AALTO Bistro is tucked into a corner of the Nordic House, next to Háskóli Íslands. The ambience is relaxed upscale Sandinavian, and the view of the university and Reykjavík from the floor-to-ceiling windows is beautiful.
They have a rotating menu every day, I got the fish of the day (plaice in a white wine dijon sauce) and it was the second best fish meals I've had in my 2 years living in Iceland (second only to Messinn). My wife got the fish soup and it was excellent also. For Reykjavík the price was very reasonable, you can get much cheaper food on Laugavegur for basically the same price (I paid maybe 300 ISK more for my fish than the cost of a burger and fries on the high street).
A great find, and I would highly recommend it!
