We booked the table when we checked in for the Blue Lagoon based on the great reviews- the meal did not disappoint. We had just arrived a few hours earlier from Boston and were exhausted. After a swim in the Blue Lagoon and then lunch at this gorgeous restaurant, we totally were revived. The food was fantastic, if a bit... More

Superb food, the best lamb I've ever eaten! Perfect end to an incredible experience. We dined at about 4.30 and allowed c.2 hours before our pick up which worked well.

Thought the food was be gimmicky and small but I was pleasantly surprised. The portions were big and tasty (yes the price is expensive but Iceland is expensive everywhere) The dessert was the highlight of the meal. Plus they gave it me complimentary because it was my birthday :) Caramel mousse with ice cream and crumble was amazing!!! We were... More

We booked a table after a day in the blue lagoon, really relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant, we made our choices from the menu, and chose not to order wine which was too expensive we chose the local beer Gull which is good. As we were four women we were chatting and drinking in the atmosphere we hardly noticed it... More

Amazing just like the rest of the blue lagoon staff welcoming and very polite!! Even more so it allows you to look out onto the blue lagoon while your eating! Your first glass of wine is free and food is not that expensive must visit

With the luxury package. The sparkling wine was delicious. We had the set seafood menu which was beautifully cooked and presented but very filling, 2 courses would be enough. The service was great but like everything in Iceland, very expensive

We had lunch at Lava after enjoying the Blue Lagoon. This was our first meal in Iceland but from my Tripadvisor research I was prepared for the expensive cost. We had a nice table by the window overlooking the lagoon and lava rocks. The food was good and the service was impeccable. I had the cod which I enjoyed but... More

Great service and food. One of our party asked for gluten free bread and they brought out no problem and the other rolls were super tasty Soup and haddock starter were lovely and beef tenderloin and lamb mains fantastic ! Deserts of poached pear and baked apple also fab! The perfect ending to our visit to the blue lagoon
