For a city that only just ducks below the arctic circle, Reykjavik is a culinary haven. The cozy and friendly restaurant and bar BAST is no exception. Whether it be a deluxe brunch date or after work drink, Bast is the place to be.
Just of the main drag, Bast is a hidden Reykjavik gem that I was lucky enough to discover during my first week in Reykjavik. The interior is bright and hip and the food is fantastic. From the freshest tasting soups and salads to mammoth mid-morning feasts (in the form of carnivorous/vegetarian and even vegan brunch platters), there is a satisfying solution to every appetite.
The restaurant is also a regular venue for great DJ’s and local jazz bands. The lights are dimmed, the candles are lit and the wines are poured. By night the atmosphere is vibrant and fun.
Whether it be a friendly feast or an evening nightcap, (or both), Bast will not disappoint.
