“Lovely food”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We were here around Christmas time and so there was a Christmas buffet on offer. The food was lovely and it was great to be able to try lots of different things that you would not normally get to taste.

“Pricey but worth the visit”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

We had a few hours to spare whilst at the Blue Lagoon so booked a meal after our soak.

This restaurant has a great atmosphere overlooking the Lagoon. The food was gorgeous, especially the trio of burgers starter.

I've seen some reviews complaining about the prices. The food is great quality & you have to allow for the fact it really is a unique experience.

Would highly recommend visiting the Lava Restaurant if you have time!

“Buffet was average”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

The sushi and salad bar in the buffet was very good but the rest was awful. The meat was rubbery and inedible. I saw some of the prepared meals from the menu at other tables and they looked amazing. I will get that next time.

“A good address but which does not worth a bend”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Necessarely recommended by the blue lagoon clinic this restaurant was not a disagreeable experience, many flavors as well as the nice presentation.
Dishes are served in small quantity but they have a very good quality.
But there is one negative point, the service which is slow and distant (cold).
There is a judge contrast between cooking and the service.
The ambiance is nice but all the charm of volcanos and the blue lagoon are reduced by the huge dining room (this a personnel filling and you might think something els)
To conclude, a good address but which does not worth a bend
