“TONIGHT, WE DINE IN HELLA!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

I already used that joke on my review of Hotel Ranga, but I am using it again. Sorry.

Had dinner here one night as a change of pace from the Ranga, where we were staying. Food very nice, decor charming, staff very very nice. Never ate horse before, so am not sure if all horse steaks are just excellent no matter how well you prepare them, but I tend to doubt that,so... horse steaks were perfectly prepared and delicious and tender -- would eat again, not just for novelty value.

For those who don't like the thought of eating Ol' Dobbin, there are other choices, all looked good.

The night we visited the weather was pretty rough, and the place was empty, but I am told that it is something of a local hangout normally -- good place to eat where the locals eat, because in this case the locals have great taste.

“Dont be fooled by the exterior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

The food was simple with limited choice but very tasty and all homemade. Service was friendly and the ambience was good with simple decoration.

“Friendly place, good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

This was a great find in Hella, it is a friendly Resturant who made a real effort to make us feel welcome. The menu was in Icelandic, but the staff ensure they take you through it so you know exactly what you are getting. There is a mixture of burgers, pizza and other dishes. Price is very reasonable too. Locals makes for a great atmosphere and a place we will certainly return to.

“Fantastic service, great quality, and very reasonably priced food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

We came to Hellubio as we were looking for a place to have coffee during some bad weather in Iceland (I love Iceland, but when the weather's bad, it's baaaaad!). The coffee was lovely, the family who own it so friendly so we came back the next evening (tonight) for dinner and it was gorgeous. To be honest, all food i eat in Iceland seems to be gorgeous, but this was gorgeous simple food, AND reasonably priced, which is much rarer! 3 courses plus coffee for less than £30 a head, impressive. The Skyr was lovely in particular. And the locals who were in there seemed friendly too! Definitely worth a visit or two-certainly if you want a break from the more complex/complicated food other places in the region do.

“good food, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We had a good meal at Hellubio. The menu is limited, but we really enjoyed the horse and skyr for dessert. It's an attractive restaurant with good help. The only negative was they played the same 5 Adele songs on a loop!
