Our trip to Vestmannaeyjar was unplanned but easily turned into one of the highlights of our entire trip. After a morning of driving, ferrying, and hiking Gott was the first restaurant that caught our eye. We sat down at a nice table and soaked in the relaxed cool atmosphere. We were so hungry that we wanted to order a little bit of everything on the menu (it all looked so good). We settled on the spread which included lobster spring rolls with guacamole, prosciutto, brie with fig jam and walnuts, chicken bites with mayo, and bread as well as a bowl of fish soup. This meal was by far the most amazing thing we had to eat on our entire trip. We could not decide on a favorite as we kept moving back and forth between bites of each. Everything was so incredibly fresh. My personal favorite was the fish soup which tasted like it had jumped from the ocean straight into the bowl. I could not believe how delicate and flavorful the fish tasted in the impeccably seasoned and perfectly creamy dish. The staff was lovely and you could tell that Gott just made people happy.

Such a great experience at lunch, we came back for dinner the same day. Gott has a beautiful space, delicious fresh food and very attentive and friendly staff. The menu is outstanding and fairly priced. Thank you for setting a great standard.

When we went to the Westman Islands our only plan was to spend the day there and explore. We happened to walk by Gott, were attracted by the decor, and decided to try it after looking up the work "gott" online. Iceland has great fish, but the cod we had here was the best on our whole trip. We were super happy we dined here.
