Are you on your way to the old harbour? Why don't you stop by at the Elding Bistro where we offer a wide selection of light courses for a reasonable price. It opens at 7 o'clock in the morning for early risers, but don't worry if you like to stay in bed a little longer as we serve breakfast until 11:30. It is also ideal for lunch and snacks during the day. We offer free WiFi for our guests and we're happy to answer all kinds of questions you might have.
The bistro is placed on Geirsgata 9 and is the first house that welcomes you in the old harbour area. The house has an interesting history and has served for many purposes since it was built in 1962. It was originally built to serve fishermen and workers in the area with an area for lodgings and more. Later there was a nursing home in the building and after the Westman Island volcanic eruption (1973) the islanders got the facilities for their use. In 2005 the first floor was turned into a restaurant and has served as once since. Today you also find in the building our offices, ASK architects and on the top floor the Icelandic Tourist Board.
We hope to see you in the bistro soon,
The Elding team at the Bistro
