My boyfriend and I ordered Confit de Canard, Onion Soup and the Cesar Salad....all deliciously washed down with red wine. Ambience was great and also the service. Overpriced like all restaurants in Reykjavik.

Ate here on our last night at Hotel Odinsve. I had the salted cod and my husband the baked salmon. Both were delicious and large portions. The bistro was busy and had a good atmosphere.
