AMAZING RESTAURANT IN GREAT LOCATION
"I visited this restaurant with my colleagues who live in Reykjavík. The building was designed by a Finnish architect who is very famous for his contemporary designs. The bistro is located inside, we were welcomed by the owner who has built up a great business and reputation for amazing food. We all choose the lunch time special menu which consisted of 3 courses, we had the cauliflower soup which was the best soup I have ever eaten! The main course was fish of the day and it was amazing, see photo. On top of that you have great views over the wildlife sanctuary. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you want a great experience and amazing food."

A REALLI ENJOYABLE LUNCH
"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!"
