"Gott" in Icelandic means "good.' Suffice to say, that word doesn't even come close to doing justice to the dining experience that awaits at Gott. Located in the Reykjavik Konsulat Hotel (a Hilton Property), Gott offers an Icelandic dining experience with Westman Island influence. Even a small country like Iceland features distinct regional cooking.

At Gott, the menu, though somewhat limited, offers a balance of seafood and meat dishes. Since Iceland is in the North Atlantic, cod fish is a staple on any menu. Gott, however, takes a fish most Americans assume to be bland and prepares it in a variety of ways - all spectacular. They also offer one of the best burgers I have ever eaten. Accompanying sauces accentuate the tenderly cooked meat. Served with a fresh salad (where do they get such tender greens!) and a quartered sweet potato, makes for a complete meal.

Dining out in Iceland will put some stress on your wallet. Gott, however, comes off as not only reasonably priced, but as a bargain compared to other local restaurants. Service and ambience both excellent.

Absolute fantastic experience. We were a group of five, and all our dishes were delicious. (I had the fresh cod which was amazing!) While in Reijkjavik, make sure you do not miss the opportunity to visit and eat at Gott. you will not be disappointed. Friendly staff and delicious food. Winning combination.
