The Black Beach restaurant and coffee house is located in one of the most amazing nature highlights of the south, Reynisfjara. In a short walking distance from the basalt formations and the cave Halsanefshellir the restaurant offers a breathtaking view of Dyrholaey and the ocean. The restaurant was built in 2014 and is an architectural beauty where the building blends into the terrain and rocks from the beach were used as building material in the walls. The coffee house offers; hot soup, freshly made cakes and sandwiches, local discs such as waffles with local ice cream, soft drinks, coffee and tea. The restaurant offers traditional Icelandic food like lamb, beef and fish. We offer free wifi

I was expecting more. This was one time I didn't visit Trip Advisor before arriving and won't make that mistake again. The Black Sand Beach is such a gathering spot that I would have expected an elevated spot for eating - figuratively, not literally. Walk...More

Expensive very simple snack food (fries and others), but this is unfortunately one of the very few restaurants along the coast, both ways from Vik, so consider a stop here at lunch time.

Our experience in this place was good, my wife loved the steak there, nice ambiance, the staff was good but looked tired as we had a late dinner there, but we have enjoyed the our dinner and was a good value for money.

I got the fish and chips, which was absolutely amazing! I had originally wanted the lamp soup, but they were sold out, which is fair given it was 3:30pm, well past lunch. The restaurant is basically on the beach, so you have a nice view...More

We were famished as we arrived at the black sand beach and needed food. The restaurant was incredibly disappointing after our long drive. First - the bathrooms are out of order! Then, a long line plus limited menu at cafe (even given the somewhat promising...More
