“Don't miss the food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

On the trip with friends, we were looking for a place for a quick bite. For a foodie that I am, it was one of the greatest surprises on the road. I can only praise the chef's creations, each meal is thought through to the tiniest details, from the dressing to the decorations. I was quite inspired by some of the food combinations and the chocolate cake for dessert was absolutely fantastic. Really helpful staff, and the whole place is just cozy. A must-do, even if only for a coffee!

Stopped in here purely by chance and were so happy we did! It had the friendliest staff ever. The food was good - highly recommend the lamb soup. Our husbands had the "Homemade" which was bread with an egg and smoked lamb. It was also delicious. We enjoyed it so much that we went back the next day after our tour of the peninsula.

The staff was wonderful and gave us a map of the peninsula which they then marked up with some fabulous "off the beaten track" sites that we would have missed otherwise.

We did not stay in the hotel but wished we'd been able to. Don't miss this little gem!

We stopped at Hotel Rjukandi for dinner during our visit of Snaefellsnes. We arrived there by chance and didn't expect much but were very pleasantly surprised. The staff were welcoming and helpful, and the food was outright fantastic. A little gem!

Frábær staður, hrein og hugguleg herbergi með góðu rúmi og æðislegri sturtu. Fengum frábæran mat á veitingastaðunum. Starfsfólkið er afar vinalegt og hjálplegt, okkur var bent á gönguferð sem var mjög skemmtileg. Mæli með þessum stað.
