“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Food was absolutely delicious. I am a vegetarian, sadly not a great choice for veggies but what I had was wonderful. My husband had a fish soup that he said was the best soup he had ever eaten. It is expensive here but Iceland is expensive anywhere. The food was definitley memorable and the service was with a smile and also excellent.

“Delicious food at the Blue Lagoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Do it - end your day of perfect relaxation at the Blue Lagoon with a delicious meal at Lava. Set 3 course menu very good value and house wine totally fine. Loved every mouthful - especially the complementary amuse Bouche - a delicious goose soup. Every mouthful was stunning - especially enjoyed the smoked duck breast entree.

“Very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

The set menu of seafood bisque, catch of the day, and fresh baked dessert was far better than I was expecting it to be. It was very very good. There was an alternative to seafood, I think it may have been chicken. They also do a la carte.

“Expensive but worth it as a treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The setting for this restaurant would be hard to beat - overlooking the blue lagoon. The food was fresh, well presented and filling and the staff served us with a sense of humour and knowledge of their menu and wine list. There's no getting away from the expense - a meal for 4 with wine cost us over £200 - however, for a very special occasion, you couldn't do a lot better than the Lava Restaurant

“Delicious fish soup in Harry Potter setting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

We had spend the morning in the thermal baths and needed a light lunch before moving on. Very nice friendly and helpful waitress. The restaurant overlooks the lagoon and is really very unusual. We both had a very simple lunch of fish soup which was very tasty and robust. Served with delicious home made bread just out of the oven.
Quite expensive but in a unique setting so well worthy the experience!
