Cafe Solo enjoys an ambiguous identity that comes from being a lot many things at once. From a decent cafe-bar and bistro during the weekdays to a throbbing discotheque at weekends, the place lets you have an insight into 'the good life' of Reykjavik. To add to it, its off-the-street location makes it a great stop for a cup of coffee or a mug of chilled beer with some light fare. Do not hesitate to drop in even if you're in a large group: the special group menu offered at Solon will take care of that!
This sparkly, hip restaurant called Iðnó is located in an old theatre, and still functions as such, offering some of the best shows on offer in Reykjavík. Overlooking the pond, complete with birds and baby birds, this is the place for an idyllic view of the old city center. To be particularly recommended for late dinners. The menu is interesting, with a variety of Icelandic seafood and lamb dishes and some international main courses. The ground floor has a coffee house/bar and a little veranda, where guests can enjoy the quacking birdlife and feed hungry ducks and elegant swans with breadcrumbs.
Based in a very prestigious house, in its time (1916) the largest building in Iceland, and a former pharmacy (apótek = pharmacy) the Apótek is a hip and ambitious restaurant, as is clearly reflected in the smart interior design and a stiff upper lip service. Apótek functions both as a bar and a restaurant, as is the current trend in Reykjavík, and its central location makes it an ideal place for a drop in on a Saturday night, but watch out though, as they maintain a strict door policy. The menu is an international one, offering everything from tapas and sushi to Icelandic specialties.
