Bistro and bar with artisan cooking and hand-crafted cocktails
Uno, a cosy yet vibrant bistro and bar in the heart of downtown Reykjavík, has become a favourite among local foodies. Best known for its original appetizers and inviting atmosphere, this trendy bistro takes no shortcuts when it comes to quality.
Uno is located in a charming old building known as “The Falcon House” on Ingólfstorg square. With its rustic interior design and lovely window view, the restaurant itself makes for an excellent setting for some taste bud tickling. Uno’s ambitious artisan kitchen has attracted some of the best young chefs in town and acquired a following of loyal patrons, including an eclectic mix of writers, actors and politicians.
The menu has a modern take on traditional favourites and prices are moderate by Icelandic standards. Frequented by locals on the weekends, the atmosphere is vibrant and the bar is busy. The lively lounge at UNO offers a refreshing range of cocktails, mixed by international master bartenders – with UNO’s signature twist.
Homemade syrups are blended with fine ingredients from the kitchen; fruits and berries, herbs and chillies. The Espresso Martini is a great choice when the ample portions of food have left no room for the delicious crème brûlée. In the afternoon there is Happy Hour with wine and beer 50% off regular prices. Friday and Saturday the kitchen stays open until midnight, other days until 11 p.m., which makes UNO a perfect stop after a concert at the nearby Harpa Concert Hall, or an indulgent afternoon at the Blue Lagoon. A tip from a regular: “If you don't want a big meal, choose from a selection of appetizers, like baked cheese or the renowned Carpaccio.
This will become your go-to place for great food and people watching, when in Reykjavik.
