For regulars to Thorvaldsen in the evenings, it’s hard to shake the idea that you’re paying what seems like a lot to dine in a nightclub. Thorvaldsen deserves to be seen as a restaurant in its own right, however, and for tourists, it is a good example of a typical and high quality Reykjavík bistro-bar. For the rest of us, you won’t find any surprises, but it’s a good place to head with a few friends to eat out (just order a main course though!) once in a while.
