We chose Lava for our final Iceland dinner, after a day blissfully soaking in the Blue Lagoon. However, we didn't anticipate the European pacing of dinner (we had a 9pm appointment elsewhere, and went in to dinner at 7, thinking 90 minutes would be sufficient.) It became apparent one hour in, that this was a place to have a long, leisurely dinner, enjoying the excellent food & wine, and the other-worldly view of the steaming lagoon at dusk, right outside the windows. Even though we chose that night's 3-course preset dinner, we still had to rush, and eventually had to ask (before the entrees arrived) for our desserts to-go. What a pity---everything was quite delicious and artfully prepared and presented... amazing langostines! We probably should have chosen the bistro next door for a quicker meal, had we realized we didn't have adequate time, but I have no regrets about the delicious food we enjoyed at Lava---only that we had to rush due to our own timeframe. Give it at least 2.5 hours for dinner! (The chocolate ganache dessert, later back at the hotel, was sensational!)
