Went to restaurant as inside Blue Lagoon. Food didn't disappoint and tasted delicious. Only gripe is the waiting time which literally took 45-60min for the mains to arrive. Service rendered was friendly and helpful. Cost wise be prepared to spend as it wasn't cheap - $40-45 for each main course. Overall good experience after the Lagoon relaxed feel

We purchase the premium package to enter the Blue Lagoon, and a reservation for a table with two glasses of sparkling wine were included. We arrived late but we're still brought right inside and given a table & our delicious sparkling wine. We also ordered the creme brûlée to enjoy with our wine, and it was great! One of the... More

Really good food - comparable to our last Michelin star meal but at 'normal ' Icelandic prices. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the spa (though the two attractions combined definitely makes it a 'treat ')

The food was absolutely amazing. A bit pricy like everything in Iceland but worth it. The staff is friendly and the restaurant is very nice.

Boyfriend and I recently visited the blue lagoon, and after a hard day of relaxing and pampering we booked into the lava restaurant for dinner at 5pm. I looked at the prices on the menu before going and was slightly taken aback until I realised that the majority of Icelandic restaurants will charge close to this (if not more!) and... More

Decided to splash out on a recent visit to the Blue Lagoon & eat at the Lava restaurant after our wonderful experience in the Lagoon. The restaurant itself it really impressive, built into a stunning lava cliff, with stunningly high ceilings & floor to ceiling glazing throughout with amazing views over the lagoon & surroundings. The menu was unfortunately quite... More

I went with 2 friends to eat after we went to the Blue Lagoon. The menu wasn't anything special and we hadn't realised how expensive it was (Iceland is already very expensive) but £35 for a piece of cheesecake was pushing it. The staff weren't that friendly and the quality of the food was not the best that we had... More
