Pricey but delicious

We decided to eat here since we had a long day at the lagoon and we were staying at the hotel. My husband and I both had the lamb and it was very good, portions were large. Dessert was great as well. Pricey for the adult meals, but the children's menu was priced better than any restaurant we have... read more

We decided to try this restaurant, because we went to the Blue Lagoon, and in the Premium pack it is included a reservation for 2 at this restaurant with welcome drink included. However, the welcome drink is either a glass of cava wine or a non-alcoholic drink. The food was good, even though the fish was a bit salty. Overall... More

We were pre-booked the restaurant through Blue Lagoon website. Get the booking confirmation by email with no time. Enjoy the most amazing experience in the Blue Lagoon! Powder Blue warm water drive you mad and most relaxing when you dip in the pool. The most highlight is the Lava restaurant. We were finished early the Blue Lagoon experience and arrived... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Lava Restaurant. Decent sized portions and fresh tasting fish. If you are at the Blue Lagoon I recommend going after!

My husband and I enjoyed Lava. However, we didn't have much of an appetite (or rather the portions were very generous) so we couldn't finish our food. The service was okay. It took a while for someone to check up on us to see if we were ready to order, etc. Normally, I hate pesky waiters (as I used to... More

Delicious choice of food. Only thing was that the main corse portions were a bit large. The view of the lagoon out of the window is also stunning.

Often food at touristy places is over priced and not very good but this cannot be said of the food at Lava. 5 of us ate here and all 5 of us had excellent plates of food. The decor is also great.

Ate here as part of the luxury package or whatever it is you buy when coming in to the Blue Lagoon. The fixed price menu allows you a few choices as starter main and dessert, but the star of the show was the Langoustine Soup. I would give back the main and dessert for a few more bowls of that...
