Today we had lunch buffet in this restaurant! Such buffet was vegetarian! After so many meals in meat, it was really refreshing to our stomach! Although in vegetarian style, the variety and taste of food was out of our expectation! Also, the service was great! Nothing can be complained! Besides the restaurant, there was a souvenir shop connected! Both deco... More

We stopped in the cute little town of Borgarmes and were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. We had the curry soup with homemade bread and it was great. We finished it off with a beautiful skyr parfait.

We ate dinner here. We both had the lamb soup (very tasty lamb), followed by a burger with delicious potato wedges. We were full up - to be honest one course would probably have been enough. The restaurant offers a varied menu. Good value for Iceland.

Though we didn't have the time to explore the museum, we had a very good dinner here. It was a very quiet night and the waitstaff was great. I had the beef lasagna which was very tasty and fresh. My husband had the mussels from nearby and he was very impressed.

My wife pronounced her lamb 'tender and tasty, best ever', which is high praise as Icelandic lamb is always good. I had a slightly spice vegetable soup. We asked our waitress about best places to see the Northern Lights, and as she explained to us, it was clear she was so enthusiastic and proud of her country, which was lovely... More

Came here for dinner. We had the fish soup, beef lasagne, lamb fillet and pasta with spinach & trout. Food was absolutely fabulous. The fish soup was fantastic and the lamb was excellent. The local draught beer was also nice. This place is mid to high price but we decided to treat ourselves after a long day of sightseeing.

Location and building were nice and clean. Food was delicious. Wasn't very impressed by the service. Once seated we watched 3 other tables (seated after us) get visited by the waitress. We never got bread and did not get water glasses with our water jug. The food was very good but did not feel very welcoming.

We are so sorry. This must have been a big mistake on behalf of our staff. But we are very glad you found the food was good. But we do understand you did not feel welcoming not having bread or water served to your table. We will take this up on our staff meeting. Hope you enjoyed your visit to... More
