Went here because of the reviews. Food was hearty and plentiful. We had: seafood stew -actually in potatoes not broth think Shepard pie; pony sausage - like kielbasa with gravy; lamb - tender and tasty, lamb chops - heavily breaded and in gravy. Service was friendly. Wish you could actually see how things are cooked, since they call it earth cooking, and we weren't really sure what that meant.

Large menu for choice, with a wide range of traditional Icelandic meals at reasonable prices (compared to other Icelandic restaurants). Some food cooked over the hot springs outside. Not sure food we ordered was to our liking, but think that's because we went for adventurous choices on the menu. Would have liked to have gone back to try other things. The puddings looked lovely but we didn't sample. Lovely free bread muffin and dip was served before our meal.

stayed in the near by frost and fire guesthouse for 3 days and we decided on the 1st night to explore the town and find somewhere to eat there, being a veggie this place had the best choices on the menu. The food was so good we ate there every night. Good selection on the menu inc traditional Icelandic dishes, price was good and large portions as we found everywhere in Iceland. Very helpful and friendly staff. On the last night we ate there the chef even made me a special pizza (minus the cheese) with extra toppings as I didnt want the cheese and let me take what was left with us ( very large pizza for one person to eat )

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant, excellent food and service and lovely atmosphere. The fish was cooked outside on an "Earth Cooking" geothermal heat source. A great way to finish off a day spent in the awe inspiring scenery of Iceland.

While in Iceland our tour bus stopped and we had a very nice lunch there. The rye bread takes 24 hours to make and its made from the steam from thermal springs. Its cooked from the earth and the food was wonderful. A real treat. The garlic potato salad was spicy and very good and the salmon was fresh. The sweets were wonderful as well . The little town was so quaint. The food is actually cooked outside in open ovens heated geothermal. The inside was clean and the staff were pleasant and helpful. We will go back.
