This restaurant opened for lunch for a group of more than 60 who were delayed due to weather which closed the road. Our server, who we found later was an owner, explained that they were not usually open for lunch, made us feel welcome and...relaxed and brought beverages quickly. Menu surprised me, I expected a sandwich under the circumstances. I chose the lamb shank with delicious, fresh mashed potatoes and vegetables. Others at my table had burgers, pasta with salmon and vegetarian entrees. Even dessert ...followed by a "story" of the history of Midgard (an Adventure camp). Their warm welcome turned what could have been a long wait on a bus to a glimpse of a wonderful family run establishment that deserves to succeed . Well Done, Midgard!More

Our bus tour was put on hold for a couple of hours because of high winds. The tour guides frantically were trying to find a new place for us to eat lunch. Midgard was closed but opened up their doors for a group of 60!!!...The food was amazing … the lamb shanks were very tender and the salmon pasta was very tasty. Cute young family owners were more than accommodating and I would recommend for any traveler !!!More

We've been here on our Tour across Island. We had the Charcuterie Plate and the Salmon Tagliatelle. Both were really great. The Service was perfect.

We don't usually settle for burgers, but we were exhausted after hiking and driving all day. And the burgers were spectacular! Cooked just how we ordered them, as well as juicy, full of flavor and grilled taste. They were topped with a caramelized onion relish...that was to die for. The "fries" were actually tiny new potatoes cut in half and either deep fried of grilled. Try their Sudovik (?sp) beer - slightly sweet and effervescent. Service is fast and friendly.More

I highly recommend the vegan burger, one of the best I’ve ever tried. A family member also ordered the regular burger and according to him it was delicious as well. The place it self is very trendy and well designed and the staff was super...nice. Will definitely go again next time I’m in Hvolsvöllur.More

You are not spoilt for choice in Hvolsvöllur: if you don't want to have a highway-quality pizza or a burger, you better head to the supermarket while it's still open (which, on weekend, is not for long). We ended up at Midgard out of desperation....The menu was not exactly appealing to my tastes, but in the end we were pleasantly surprised. I ordered a naked burger, and not only was it tasty - the chef even came out to check whether I needed the meal to be gluten free. This kind of attention to guests is not common in Iceland, and I sure didn't expect it in an affordable burger place. The side potatoes were lovely, and the salad very fresh and rich. All in all, an unexpectedly nice meal, made even better by the friendliness and attention to detail of the whole staff.More

We stayed at Midguard and ate here every day. The burger, salmon, lamd were all excellent. Portions were huge, and we were very pleased. The chocolate dessert (pot of cream?) was also great.

We were with a large group and went to Midgards for dinner. The meal was outstanding and the entertainment was a true delight. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting the people at Midgards and our evening with them. We will be back!

My group of eight stopped off for breakfast at Midgard. There were sweets, carbs, and proteins (i.e., slices of meat and cheeses, hard-boiled eggs, and yogurt). The coffee and juice were good. The breakfast was good and hit the spot. The vibe of the seating...area and lobby was cool and adventure oriented. I docked them a star because the breakfast buffet line was tight - a bit cramped. The angled line makes it tight if more than 3 people are there. Other than that I'm considering a return when I return to Iceland in March.More
