We ate here twice during our stay in the hotel and on both occasions the food was very good, however on one of the nights we had to wait for 50 minutes before our first course arrived - and no one thought to explain what was happening before we complained. For the cost (which is expensive) it was therefore disappointing.
Unfortunately there isnt much choice in the area and this is probably as good as you will get.

The staff - especially the lady serving us - is very moitivated and interested in happiness of the guests. Even special wishes are fullfilled with a big smile: we asked for a tasting menue (although this was not mentioned on the card), and a combination of the best dishes have specially been prepared for us, without any surcharge. The choice and quality of the dishes is impressive, from very local (the region of Myvatn) to islandic specialities and international dishes. Every detail is observed, e. g. we got the first fresh potatos of the season, prepared in Lava Stones with a special recipe. An additional plate of the starter menue was offered to our son wtihout additional charge. The only negative point is that the restaurant is a bit noisy: when many guests (especially groups) are inside, it may get a bit loud - here some more damping material at walls or ceiling might help.
Overall, a highlight we had during our trip in Iceland - and a must for any visitor in the region!

Arriving late and very wet in Myvatn, we had a warm welcome and some very good food in Restaurant Myllan. The food was good enough to encourage us to book for a second night. Fresh local produce - the Arctic Char especially recommended. Friendly service. The only downside was the rather dated and sterile dining room

We enjoyed a fabulous meal at this restaurant. The main course I chose was Icelandic bacalao and it sure was good. The waffle with icecream was the perfect dessert after the fish. Good athmosphere!
