Nielsen Restaurant

Lunch menu

Lunch at Nielsen is served from 11:30-14:30 from Monday to Friday.

For lunch we offer hearty homestyle cooked meals where you can choose from meat, fish/seafood and vegetable dish.

Our idea for the lunch menu is to offer our guests a simple yet satisfying meal made from the freshest produce available for a very reasonable price. We use both Icelandic and local produce as much as we can but also allow for exotic cuisine to pop up every now and then. You could be lucky enough to pop in one day and find yourself a lunch menu that any Icelanders grandma could have made or maybe that day we have gone Thai, you never know (unless you check our website/Facebook before you arrive).
