Just jumped out of the water, dry up a little bit and went for our meal wearing bathrobes and flip flops - amazing.

After relaxing for almost 3 hours in the Blue Lagoon, we had dinner at the LAVA Restaurant. You cannot be dressed in a robe to dine there, so that is something to keep in mind. The atmosphere is very nice, you have beautiful views of the rocks and the water from the windows. The service is good. If you got... More

After a thoroughly enjoyable two hours in the lagoon, we were ready for the perfect dinner. And It perfect. The presentation was lovely and the meal was delectable. Our waitress was able to recommend the perfect wine to accompany our selections. The service was outstanding. When you consider that there is no tipping in Iceland, you then realize that the...

This is a must if you are at the Blue Lagoon. It will finish the experience. Look out at the Lagoon while enjoying a very nice meal. The décor blends with the Blue Lagoon, the service is attentive. You may need a reservation depending on how busy they are.

The Lava restaurant at the Blue Lagoon was one of our favorites. We drove there and there is plenty of parking. The food was excellent and we had a view of the man made lagoon from our table. Even with a reservation we had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. We ordered the langustino soup that had a... More

I sat in my robe while dining w my family at the LAVA restaurant (do not go there with a wet robe. I was dying to leave the restaurant because it was so cold with all their windows opened!). We ordered catch of the day, grilled beef tenderloin and steamed mussels. The grilled beef tenderloin was to die for! So... More

The restaurant is located inside, tucked away from the pool, there's no view, the view is of a LAVA wall.. We ordered steak and had the best meal here by far on our Icelandic trip. It was also the most expensive and staff were great. In the evening you must wear normal clothes, no bathers straight from the pool so... More
