“Just okay...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Eating the buffet after taking a dip in the pool for a few hours is very nice but then again any food would do the trick, at that point. It's very easy and relaxing but it's not anything to write home about and it is expensive. If I went back again I would pack a lunch. If you do have money to burn a nice day there would be a few hours in the pool, eat the buffet and relax, and then jump back in the pool for an hour or so (4ish hour total for all you mathletes out there). I was bummed when I discovered they didn't have the traditional rotten shark meat just to say I tried it (found some at the market in Reykjavic)!

“One of the best meals we had in Iceland!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

The food was fresh and well prepared. While it was expensive, most meals in Iceland are. the setting is also beautiful. The restaurant is built into the lava!

“fine buffet lunch, after a dip in the Blue Lagoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

We had one of our best meals in Iceland on the last day of our recent visit there at the restaurant attached to the Blue Lagoon pool. The buffet had a great variety of really good choices, and the food was delicious. The view was good too.

“Lovely buffet in a rock hewn setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

We enjoyed a beautiful breakfast buffet in a dining room. It is a quiet, upscale room away from the bussle of vacationers.There were plenty of culinary choices to enjoy.The room's walls were rough hewn rock with beatuiful lighting on the rear and an expanse of windows overlooking the lagoon. We also later enjoyed a light lunch in the little restaurant near the gift shop.
