“Almost missed it”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

I had read about Cowshed Cafe before going but it wasn't on the agenda. Then, as we were driving to Myvatn, there was a small sign that we flew right by. A quick U-turn and we were on our way in for lunch. You have to walk right past the cows who crane their necks out to give patrons a quick lick. The food is exceptional and service people cheerful, knowledgeable and full of good info.

“Good local food”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We had a very nice dinner at the restaurant. I got a course consisting of a number of local dishes, and it was absolutely excellent. Additionally, the breakfast here was the best we had all trip.

“Have the blueberry cake ...”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

... it's awesome. Great food - I had a toasted sandwich and a nice cup of tea. I wish I'd tried all the cakes - they looked amazing. Cafe is large and light and, and the sun was shining brightly when we arrived (two hours later it was snowing). Friendly staff. Lovely cows. What else can I say?

“Worthwhile eating here”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

This restaurant is located in a cow shed and you can see the cows through a glass window. There is even a milking parlor. The food is wonderful, home made, cooked beautifully. Each one of us had something different and the verdict was unanimous - everyone enjoyed his meal.
,the bread is baked in geothermal ovens and the cheese is made from the cows on the other side of the windowThe service was also very pleasant

“great food and cows to keep you company”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Went here as part of an organised tour. Fabulous home cooked and home grown food and children can watch the cows in the next door room through a glass window.
