Healthy food for a happy heart.
The renowned chef Sveinn Kjartansson has been showing viewers of Icelandic TV how to make the most of the country’s natural sources, especially its range of seafood.
Visitors to AALTO Bistro can sample for themselves the work of this creative chef, with delightful fresh specials. Naturally, the fruits of the sea feature prominently, although meat and vegan options are also on offer.
In true New Nordic style, the food at AALTO Bistro draws on fresh, local, produce, ingredients which change with the seasons. When it comes to afternoon coffee, linger awhile, over delicious homemade cakes, all made with the best ingredients available. A distinct pleasure.
Named in honour of the visionary Finnish architect who designed the building, Alvar Aalto, the Bistro’s setting within the Nordic House is as pleasurable as the menu. This distinctive blue-roofed building is an architectural jewel in the heart of Reykjavík and an icon of Nordic aesthetics, offering guests to the Bistro a chance to explore the rich seam of art, literature, culture and design coming out of the region. Close to the National Museum and University, it is less than ten minutes’ walk from the city center. Truly worth a visit.
