“Great Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

The dining room, like the rest of the hotel was warmly decorated. The entre' selection, though limited had the basic Icelandic fare.
Both my husband and I had the lamb which was excellently prepared. The entire meal was a treat!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

We both had the recommended 3-course meal with lamb fillet as the main course, appetizer was a sample platter and a huge slice of chocolate cake w/ice cream for dessert. Both loved it! :-)

“Good overall meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

A small upscale restaurant near the waterfall. The outside of the restaurant does somewhat reflect that. We had the lamb and cod. The lamb came in 3 pieces and just like the lamb in Humarhöfnin, it came with skin, fat, and heavily seasoned. I thought the potatoes were good, not microwaved, and had a good brown color around it. The asparagus wrapped with bacon was a good idea, but they need bigger asparaguses because the bacon overpowers it. The proportions weren’t correct. The cod was cooked perfectly. The fish flaked off and I didn’t taste any fish scales. The lobster sauce that came with it was okay, had a little bitterness to it. The consistency of the sauce was perfect, viscous enough to “spread” onto the cod. The sliced potatoes were good as well, just cut differently from the one in the lamb dish. The waitress was friendly and very helpful. Definitely answered a lot of my questions about the island. In summary, I would give this place 3.5 stars. I didn’t think the flavors melded together for the cod dish and the lamb dish was not overly impressive, especially having it at other places now. I would however definitely come here over Farm Holiday Drangshlid anyday.
