And it was GREAT!. Great food and great service. I had the lobster soup, lamb and an awesome ice cream / caramel desert. Truly worth every penny (or krona) that I paid for the meal.

Four people in our party and we got four different entrees; lamb, all veggies, and two different fish. Everything was well prepared and the presentation was visually pleasing. Service was impeccable and polite. Prices are on the online menu and probably aren't that bad considering...More

This was the best dinner we had in our two week Iceland roundtrip. The setting is pretty special and every dish was excellent. Staff was friendly. Make sure to make reservations upfront.

Delightful, delicious lunch on our way to the airport after two great weeks in Iceland. Relax in the Blue Lagoon and then have a leisurely lunch with great service. We took our server's advice on what to order, and loved everything.

When I visited last month the restaurant was near full (approx 140 people), of which about 9-10 were in robes - just as a heads up... It's acceptable but you'll be very outnumbered.
