Probably the best ever 3-course meal we both had. The Lava-Style lobster was a sensational experience. Reynir&Laufey, Iceland

Great inventive dinner with local provenance. They were able to fit us in at a jammed time. Cod Cheeks Tempura. Lagoustine with squid ink. Beautifully presented.

I visited Vestmannaeyjar a month ago and stayed at the hotel connected to the restaurant, the hotel was amazing and the whole trip on the island was fabulous, but this restaurant was the highlight. the food was extraordinary and the service was great, the decor...was very chic and modern. I recommend the lobster roll and deer carpaccio, its genuinely the best thing I've ever tasted.More

I was with a friend for dinner and we got excellent food. However, it would have been nice to get our coctails before dinner and not after our meals came on the table ;)

We came here with a large tour group as we were staying in the Hotel Vestmannaeyjar. The food was artfully plated. I ate vegetarian, both others had fish entrees and liked them

We were visiting the Westmann islands during our trek around Iceland shortly after the country reopened to vaccinated travelers and had dinner here on Icelandic Independence Day. It wasn’t too busy but we had made a reservation. The menu featured a couple of 3-course tasting...menus or you could order ala carte. As elsewhere on our journey, the wait staff here was young and just getting back into the swing after the months of no travelers. Nonetheless the service was good. I got the three course tasting: cod cheeks in tempura batter appetizer, beef tenderloin main and a brûlée donut and ice cream for dessert. My wife chose the fresh burrata with pesto and we chose a bottle of wine from the small list. The tasting menu was a great deal. Overall it was a great eveningMore

Absolutely astounding culinary experience. I am still thinking about the reindeer carpaccio and lobster roll we had! Spectacular! Prices are very reasonable considering the fine dining experience, the service was very welcoming and professional. Do not miss this one when in Vestmanneyjar!

We went on an evening that nearly all other restaurants on the island were closed and were met with a full restaurant. They made an exception for us if we could finish in 1,5 hours. We accepted and both got just a main dish. We...both had the lamb hip and it was amazing. Very tasty with very good flavor profile and combinations. Very earthy tastes. Reminded me of when game meat in is in season back home. Very nice staff, spoke English and happy they could still arrange a table for us.More

Good food but absolutely awful service. Can hardly recommend this place to anyone. Our table was not taken care of at all. I’m not a demanding person as it it’s my first review but the services was just plain awful almost rude.More
