My boyfriend and I dined here in the evening as we were staying in the nearby silica hotel. I am a coeliac however the restaurant easily amended the tasting menu to make it suitable for me, and it was delicious! Would definitely recommend!

Enjoyed great food and service after wonderful treatment at Blue Lagoon. There is no better way to finish your stay than having a great dinner afterwards. Food was absolutely delicious and just like anywhere else in Iceland also expensive.

A lovely lunch following our trip to the spa - we had baked fish which was divine. A little overpriced but worth it for a very special treat.

We went at about 7:30pm but I am not sure what time it starts from.
I have lunch reservations, is it necessary to change or are the slippers and robe acceptable to wear to lunch?
