We called ahead and made a reservation, just to be safe, and they had a table reserved for us with a nice candle set on it. Lots of options on the menu, 3 soups to choose from in buffet. Our waitress was very friendly and...we had great service! I loved my burger and my friend said the mushroom soup was the best she’s ever had!More

We were staying at the nearby Fosshotel Reykholt, but since we dislike hotel restaurants, which tend to be bland and expensive, we dug around and found this gem. Biggi, the owner, cordially helped us to select tasty beers from the nearby brewer. Then we enjoyed...good dnners— (1) great fish & chips with a small, very fresh salad (2) light, healthy, full flavored soup with a sandwich on the side. This restaurant is charming, well designed, and well worth a stop near Reykholt or Krauma.More

Terrific. They have a modest menu however I went for an unlimited soup buffet. They had Mushroom, Carrot and then Tomatoe. All ingredients sourced locally and all were amazing. Mushroom was my favourite. Chocolate Cake with cream was staggeringly good. Light and clearly very fresh....Soup (unlimited) was ISK 2,500 the cake ISK 650. Considering the price of food in Iceland and the exceptional quality I thought this a complete bargain.More

Nice place; nothing special. A bit out of the way. It was okay for a stop on our travels. Prices were about average for Iceland.

We were visiting the nearby waterfalls of Barnafoss and Haunfosser and decided to get something to eat on our way back to Reykjavik. We found this place on Tripadvisor and we were very happy we did. The food was very good and the owners were...extremely nice and fun talk to. It is a local place and many of the ingredients are grown by the owners. Highly recommend.More

Coming back from the Viögelmir lava worm, we stumbled on this quiet, unpreposing gem. We both had soup. Both the carrot soup and mushroom soup were divine with wonderfully made local bread. The price was veryreasonable and the friendliness of the owner and staff were...fantastic. The lava tunnel is a long way off the Ring Road and the delightful fare at this eatery is a great way to break up the drive.More

We stopped for a late lunch on our way back to the ring road from Husafell, and we had a really nice time. We had the soup buffet, which consisted of three soups - carrot, mushroom, and tomato - and it was delicious! The staff...was very friendly, and we were told to relax and rest for as long as we wanted. :-)More

I visited Hverinn on a Sunday afternoon with my family and friends and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the place with some good burgers and fries. I really loved the amenities for children to play and the restrooms are especially nice and clean. This...is a hidden gem :)More

Fortunately this was the only restaurant open in the area despite the massive pandemic restrictions during this period. We had a tomato soup for starter and fish and chips for main which was both really good, fries that came with the fish were super quality....The staff were very jolly.More

This was our second time camping here and it is a treasure. Superb Food, camp in a sheltered Greeenhouse, excellent common room with cooking amenities if you wish to cook. Berger (the Owner and his Wife) prepare daily soups served with bread that are incredible....Will be returning in a few months and will stay/camp here again. I give this establishment 5-Stars and encourge you to sample their restaurant, you will be glad you did. Warm regards and enjoy beautiful Iceland. Dave GonzalvesMore
