Owner of this restaurant was a pioneer when it comes to healthy living and food in Iceland. Flavours are adventurous and ingredient top notch. Fantastic place for a quick lunch!

This is a good restaurant when you want a break from all the bread and meat. There are some decent one bowl dishes on offer. Nothing too amazing, but just the right thing when you want to eat clean =)

It was nice to find a health conscious restaurant with gluten free options in Iceland (that was also not too expensive.) I paid about what I would at home (United States) for the bowl I got but took it to go. The staff seemed a...More

Wife was ok with her veggie dish, mine lacked flavour completely. Disappointing place overall and lacking options. Basic service, underachievers.

I had such high hopes for this place, it was the number one place to eat in Reykjavik if you are vegan.. I just expected more :( The food was quick and waitresses friendly but the food was not served hot enough and lacked flavour...More

Chilled atmosphere. Very relaxed style restaurant (eg help yourself to water, cutlery etc). Lovely vegan food!

Went after a long and cold day and ended up with a nice warm and hot soup. Their choices of vegetarian food is fine and also meat eaters will find some nice stuff on the menu. Everything was very healthy and tasted delicious.

My wife eats a lot of vegetarian and vegan food and had Glo recommended so we hunted it out. Not the sort of place you’ll stumble on as it is off the Main Street and upstairs with little signage. Well worth the visit though. Prices...More

Glo has astutely realised that just because you don't feel like cooking, you can still want healthy, nutritious and cheap food. There is a growing section of the takeaway and fast casual dining scene, and Glo is the first in the centre of Reykjavik (to...More

Description
Glo is always on the way. Located at three locations in the capital area, one inside Listhusid in Laugardalur valley in Reykjavik, one on Laugavegur 20, downtown Reykjavik and the third in Hafnafjörður at Strandgata 34. Glo is Iceland's hottest new organic restaurant. The menu consists of vegetarian- and raw food courses, meat dishes, soups and salads. The courses are somewhat modest as they are simple, filling and not flooded with too much spice or ingredients.The head chef at Glo is Solveig Eiriksdottir, a pioneer in the field of healthy cooking in Iceland. Healthy food and haute cuisine started as a hobby for her, as she had a career in textile design before she got into the restaurant business. She founded the vegetarian restaurant Graenn Kostur in 1994, and ran it for ten years. She also founded Himneskt, a best-selling organic food label, along with Elias Gudmundsson. Last year, Solveig and Elias took over management at Glo.Glo is Iceland's first raw food restaurant. Raw food is about consuming unprocessed vegetables, fruits, nuts, almonds and seeds, heated under 47°C. This preperation method preserves the enzymes in the ingredients, so your body gets an extra large portion of excellent nutrition. You can go to Glo and get healthy food to take away or eat at the restaurant. The menu is put together of raw food dishes, warm vegetarian dishes, meat dishes, soups and salads. Glo always uses organic vegetables and ingredients without additives and preservatives in every dish.The food is surprisingly inexpensive, given how costly it can be to eat organic. For example you can get soup, bread and hummus for 1090ISK, meat dish of the day for 1890 and deserts for 790. The best part about those deserts is that you can fully enjoy them without feeling guilty. Treat yourself to a wholesome and soothing meal at Glo, your body will thank you afterwards.Gló has bin voted the "Best vegetarian" 2011, 2012 & 2013
