We had lunch before hitting the trails and everyone had the all you can eat soup deal. The traditional Icelandic Soup and the Curry Soup were both quite good. A perfect pairing for a day that was a bit on the cool side.

We were there with a bus tour. Food was very fresh and delicious. Ask for local specialities. Bathrooms are outside and you need a codebar.

We had a great dinner and an amazing view. The dinner special (main course and dessert) for 3500 ISK was salmon and apple pie. Delicious. The service was average. Not a fancy place.

Loved the lamb burger and the trout was tremendous. The other restaurants were charging $54 for beets! This place is half that and still amazing! Came back for a second time, which we never do. Amazing view too.

Very very long wait. Then when we asked we were told the large party that arrived after us was more important to serve than us... & all their 5 stars are from "Tour Guides". DON'T COME AS A WALK IN diner.
