Ok we know food in Iceland is expensive but even considering that we did not feel like we received value for money, lady serving was not very welcoming or approachable during the meal but nice on payment. You could fill a hole here if you are hungry but we wouldn't return in a hurry. MUCH better service and food available... More

Arrived at 9:10pm, restaurant is suppose to be open until 10pm. Waitress was very unfriendly. Sat us down with menus. When she came back to take our order 10 minutes later, we were told the only items available were soup or pizza as kitchen was closed. She could have clearly told us this when we were arrived.

The photos of the beautiful food on this trip advisor page do not at all represent the food we were served. Proceed with caution if you are going to visit! We had pizzas and I had a pasta. The pizzas were ok but my pasta was smothered in a most disgustingly salty tomato sauce. I think they had used garlic... More

We had dinner while ravenous after a full day of hiking and adventuring. We shared the garlic bread which was EXCELLENT and then each devoured a delicious pizza. Service, atmosphere etc were welcoming but nothing special (it was the shoulder season & fairly early in the evening, so the place was dead).

We had dinner, a pizza and a calzone. Both where good and filling, nothing special but what we wanted after a long day. Service was quick.

Soup was nice and in a good price (unlike other places where it's like 1,500isk or more...) Main courses were very average, don't go for the Caesar salad .

The food was very good but I cannot avoid the slow service and the pricy menu. We waited for about an hour. They had a group there which is most likely the reason but still why make us wait or at lease inform us that we need to wait.

We dined here for my mothers 70th birthday while on vacation. We had spoken with them ahead of time and we were able to use the back room and decorate. They had offered to make a birthday cake for us. The food was delicious and the cake was excellent. I had the salmon and it was wonderful. Another big hit... More

This is IT in Hella in terms of well rated. Something for everyone. Not gourmet but satisfying at the end of a day of touring. They service large groups off tour buses SO eat early and know that the set up is not intimate but more Denny's style. That is to say I imagine they use microwaves and have everything... More

During a chaotic day we found ourselves in Hella and in need of food. We randomly chose Arhaus. It's on the riverbank, and on a nicer day we would have eaten on the patio out back, but with plenty of windows our view was still quite nice. Hubs had lamb with vegetables and I had a pizza (the one with... More

Arhus is located along the Ranga River, 100 km east of Reykjavik on the Ring road, Route 1. It is set in idyllic fields on the banks of the river.
The restaurant serves a rich variety of local plates and global favourites. We also have a fully-stocked bar and a terrace overlooking the river, perfect for relaxing on a sunny evening.
