Definitely worth a visit. Can stay in the pool for a while but you will need to cool down. We did so by running down the beach into the sea but you could just sit on the side! There is also a steam room but we didn't use it. Showers etc. very clean and warm

When I started writing this review I was reminded that I had rewiewed it before. The thing is that it is one of my favorite places to go and eat. Not too fancy but still so nice and cosy. We had three courses, carapacchio-fish-chocoladekake. Everything was perfect and the service too.

We decided to have lunch after a seminar at Nauthóll and were not disappointed. I had the chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries, it was very good and a bit spicy. Service was good and my coworkers were happy with their fish dishes. One had fish of the day and the other fish and chips. Everyone was full and happy... More

A very nice and cosy place to visit. The location is special and the house architecture is designed as a mixture of hard and soft textures drawn from nature. The service is personal and friendly. Well worth the visit.

This was our favorite meal the first time in Iceland, so we had to return. Still clean and modern, and it was good, but not as amazing as last time. Sort of wish we had skipped it this time around because it blew the memories we had if its prior greatness!

This restaurant is only a 10 minute drive from the down town of Reykjavik, but it is outside the main city lights and therefore the Northern Lights can be easily seen from the restaurant on a clear night. Great to sit outside after dinner with a warm drink or Cognac and watch the Northern lights. I had lamb and a... More

Our tour group had its farewell dinner in a private room with all white linens and subtle pink recessed lighting. The food was outstanding as anticipated- dessert was a deliciously s chocolate cake with ice cream- sounds ordinary? Not this cake- beautifully presented and unlike any other chocolate cake we'd ever had. This followed a delicious lamb in what I... More

This is a beautiful restaurant near the one beach in the area which is man-made. They use left over hot water to warm the bay for swimming. Our group went to this restaurant. While my vegetarian meal was not so good, everyone else really enjoyed their meals and said this was the best in Iceland so far. Service was good... More
