have eaten here for lunch and dinner and both times the food has been lovely. Its quite expensive by UK standards but compared to other restaurants in Iceland its about average but has better food.

Take the time ot go to the roof to see the lagoon from above - surprisingly few people take the time to do this!

It is simply an amazing dining experience with top service and presentation.
I have rarely had the pleasure of such service.

The title pretty much sums it up. This restaurant is pretty expensive, particularly the wine list. The menu offers few choices. But, what they do, they do very well, in terms of quality and presentation. The staff was just fine.

My wife and I had lunch at Lava after finishing up our day at the Lagoon. She has the lobster salad while I had the chicken salad, both of which were excellent. The restaurant was pretty quiet and there were some pretty views of the lagoon. We had to walk up and ask for the bill when the restaurant was not that busy which is my only complaint. This seems like how a lot of the Scandinavian restaurants are though.
