The place is huge and facing the Lagoon. Service is nice and food is great. It's not a quick service, prepare yourself with some time for it. It well worth it.

Fantastic Food. I did the lamb, it tasted awesome. Some of my friends ate catfish and that also tasted very good. A great way to end the visit to Blue Lagoon

This is a great place for a meal as part of your spa day. The food here is every bit as beautiful in presentation and as tasty as the other top restaurants in the country. Very well worth it.

When I visited last month the restaurant was near full (approx 140 people), of which about 9-10 were in robes - just as a heads up... It's acceptable but you'll be very outnumbered.
