CHARACTER & STYLE

There's a clear Art Deco theme, from the furniture to the overall style. Icelandic strong-man Jóhannes Jósefsson is the man behind the vision - and in building Iceland's first luxury hotel, he's created an iconic landmark. There are black and white photos of locals scattered about, which creates interest.

Food & Drink

The restaurant's décor is smart and so is its food offering. Fresh, local fish and seafood feature heavily, with dishes such as langoustine and scallop vol-au-vents and gravlax. The rack of lamb was cooked to perfection and the prawn cocktail à la Borg was delicious.

Restaurant Borg: traditional Icelandic and classic European cuisine. Open Wed-Fri for lunch, Wed-Sun for dinner. Live music on Fri-Sat, 7-9pm.
