Husband and I dropped by for lunch after seeing gulfoss. Unique experience to dine amidst the tomato plants. Place is a greenhouse so it’s warm which was a welcome respite from the rainy weather. Servers explain the menu and the tomato farm. Strong recommendation. Husband...More

We LOVED this unique lunch stop just off the Golden Circle. This restaurant is housed in a massive complex of greenhouses growing tomatoes--hundreds, thousands of tomato vines curl and stretch along pipes and tubes just next to tables. The tomato soup is outstanding, and the...More

Friends had recommended this to us and we were glad we went. Iceland is cold but it is blessed with vast geothermal energy and pure glacial water. So, in areas with hot springs or pots, they set up hothouses to grow food. They are heated...More

This was a perfect place to warm up on a chilly day while we were doing the Golden Circle. Everything was well presented from the fresh basil plants with scissors on each table to the delicious cucumber side dish. Impossible not to carbo-load on their...More

We went with the group to see the greenhouses and taste the tomatoes. After tasting, we went outside to see an Icelandic horse show. REALLY SPECTAULAR

This was a VERY interesting experience during our time in Iceland. We went with farming friends so we were probably going to like it for the experience no matter what, but the food was great! (But you better like tomatoes!)

a favourite dining experience in iceland -- the beautiful greenhouse creates a unique dining atmosphere, and the menu is as interesting as it is delicious. rent a car and add this to your list (make a reservation!) as you explore the golden circle.

It's around $20 USD. Given how expensive restaurants can be in Iceland, this is not bad and you can eat all you want. Be sure and make a reservation or you'll end up at the bar. I highly recommend adding a dollop of sour... More

It's a restaurant. Lots of tours offered from Reykjavik so I;m sure there's one that will take you there. It's showcased on tourist brochures. If you're going when there's no snow, I highly recommend renting a car and... More

Hi Sara, I doubt the restaurant is going to answer you on TripAdvisor - probably best to contact them directly: fridheimar.is Also, I don't think they are open in the evening.
