AALTO Bistro is a friendly and exciting new restaurant in Reykjavik under the leadership and vision of renowned TV chef Sveinn Kjartansson. AALTO has an emphasis on unusual ingredients, flirting with Scandinavian cuisine with a Central-European influence.
The Scandinavian cuisine is fitting, since the restaurant is situated in the Nordic House, opposite the University of Iceland, in the middle of a bird sanctuary and wetland, and yet only a stone's throw from the city center. The Nordic House is a place of culture and learning, including literature, art and Scandinavian collaboration.
The name of the restaurant is a tribute to Alvar Aalto, Finnish architect, sculptor and painter, who designed the unusual building, so the location is worth a visit with our without the food, but the restaurant happens to be world class as well.
