As a pair of vegetarians, we often fear getting good and healthy meals while traveling. We were looking for this restaurant under a different name from Happy Cow, but were so glad we tried it out. The vegan lasagna was the first time I didn’t...More

I cannot love this restaurant enough! I love the concept and the food they serve, the only thing is that I have noticed the portion sizes have gotten smaller since last year.

We stopped here for lunch before shopping at the Icewear outlet next door. The tomato soup was zesty, flavorful, served with nutty pesto and a crusty, chewy slice of bread. Wow! If our trip was longer, I would have purchased a few loaves of that...More

Description
Glo is always on the way. Located at three locations in the capital area, one inside Listhusid in Laugardalur valley in Reykjavik, one on Laugavegur 20, downtown Reykjavik and the third in Hafnafjörður at Strandgata 34. Glo is Iceland's hottest new organic restaurant. The menu consists of vegetarian- and raw food courses, meat dishes, soups and salads. The courses are somewhat modest as they are simple, filling and not flooded with too much spice or ingredients.The head chef at Glo is Solveig Eiriksdottir, a pioneer in the field of healthy cooking in Iceland. Healthy food and haute cuisine started as a hobby for her, as she had a career in textile design before she got into the restaurant business. She founded the vegetarian restaurant Graenn Kostur in 1994, and ran it for ten years. She also founded Himneskt, a best-selling organic food label, along with Elias Gudmundsson. Last year, Solveig and Elias took over management at Glo.Glo is Iceland's first raw food restaurant. Raw food is about consuming unprocessed vegetables, fruits, nuts, almonds and seeds, heated under 47°C. This preperation method preserves the enzymes in the ingredients, so your body gets an extra large portion of excellent nutrition. You can go to Glo and get healthy food to take away or eat at the restaurant. The menu is put together of raw food dishes, warm vegetarian dishes, meat dishes, soups and salads. Glo always uses organic vegetables and ingredients without additives and preservatives in every dish.The food is surprisingly inexpensive, given how costly it can be to eat organic. For example you can get soup, bread and hummus for 1090ISK, meat dish of the day for 1890 and deserts for 790. The best part about those deserts is that you can fully enjoy them without feeling guilty. Treat yourself to a wholesome and soothing meal at Glo, your body will thank you afterwards.Gló has bin voted the "Best vegetarian" 2011, 2012 & 2013
