Angelo - The Reykjavik Grapevine

Angelo

Angelo

Published April 8, 2005

This quiet modish bistro adjacent to the discreet Hotel Fron seems miles away from Reykjavík’s thumping party central while being right smack in the centre. Owner Hanna Magnúsdóttir is intent on making the Angelo Mediterranean in feeling while relying on good Icelandic fare such as mountain fed lamb and Icelandic salmon. There is imagination at work here in starters of rare beef with pesto and camembert; speared tiger shrimp in garlic sauce. There is also a nice dinner menu, fillet of lamb, salmon steak, butter-fried catfish cheeks. The lunch menu presents more standard fare: chicken salad and bacon hamburgers. This looks to be the place where the stylish older (30s) crowd might come to chat, eat light sides, sip wine and relax. Seats 80 indoors, 30 on an outdoor terrace, weather permitting. $$$
