“Good cafe with great views”
Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

This is a simple, very good cafe-style restaurant located at the Dimmuborgir & Gongustigar Walking Path and overlooking Lake Myvatin and the surrounding countryside. You order at the counter,and they have a wide variety of pre-made sandwiches, soups, hot dishes, coffees, sodas and water, as well as beers and other alcoholic drinks. 

The views from the dining room and outdoor patio are spectacular.

“The best grilled char I have got in Iceland”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

Loved the grilled char with potatoes and salad in this lovely café with extraordinary view over the Dimmuborgir lava formation and the lake of Myvatn. Great place to stop at after a hike in Dimmuborgir.

Our first proper meal in Iceland was lunch in Kaffi Borgir at Dimmuborgir. Beautiful surroundings, great view and very good "fish of the day" trout.

“A very nice place for a coffee and local smoked salmon;)”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

This is a newly established cafe next to the incredible lava formation Dimmu borgir (e. Dark halls) in the Lake Myvatn area. I can highly reccomend the black bread with salmon, it is very good.
The view is also nice. Makes for a nice stop when you are visiting Dimmu Borgir.
