This bistro was where we had one of our finest meals in Iceland. On the menu was fresh char that had been caught that very morning and it was divine! the salad was super fresh and the dressing on the salad was light and full of herbs from their greenhouse garden. The Maitre d was extremely charming and made sure that all his customers were well fed and happy.

Ordered lamb, Arctic Char, and kid's meal (grilled cheese sandwich). Presentation was poor and plates looked like they had sat on the counter for 10 or more minutes before being delivered. Fish was properly cooked, but was completely bland, with only salt used as seasoning. Lamb was
cooked well and was good, though everything else on the plate looked tired.
The grilled cheese sandwich used ordinary white bread and tasteless cheese - not what one would expect for about $13. Overall, I felt ripped off as the entire meal had too many flaws for over $100. The server wasn't pleasant and completely ignored us after delivering our food. She never asked if things were OK with the food. We waited for a considerable time after eating before having to flag her down to get the cheque. And it wasn't busy at the
time: only three tables. We won't be going back.

We all had attic char which just tasted of salt very disappointing . The waitress delivered my husband a bottle of beer with the cap still on the bottle . Then laughed out loud at her mistake so everyone in the restaurant turned to look. Top price for substandard offerings. The waitress knocked 10 per cent off the bill should have knocked the fish off there was nothing wrong with the drinks or deserts

Not many stopping for lunch the day we went. Ate in the Bistro for quicker service. Food was fresh and well presented. Lamb was amazing. Special dessert was okay.
