We had mushroom soup, lamb and chicken which was quite good, but lacked the last edge to get more stars from us. When that's said, the service was excellent and the staff very friendly! Really like that the owner himself talked to every guest in the restaurant!

Lovely restaurant, perfect food, top hotel, perfect location.
Bit pricey but comparable with eating out in Iceland and well worth it.

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

Breakfast super, very wide choice of hot and cold food, help yourself to as much as you wish. Lunch also excellent - and three times as much food as I'd imagined, but so good we managed to demolish it all!
Dinner also excellent, although quite expensive. A treat, with unusual but very tasty and well prepared dishes such as puffin and reindeer.

“Ranga Hotel & Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

What a pleasant surprise Ranga was. Practically in the middle of "nowhere" was a jewel of a restaurant! The setting was just gorgeous,; the food divine and the ambiance top notch.
Ingi Por Jakobsson the manager, was like a old friend welcoming us back after a long absence! I felt like I knew him for years!
This is a place not to be missed. If you have the time, make sure you stay the night.

My wife, my daughter and I, were there last week. While the Accomodation was as expected, what was a very pleasant surprise, was the quality and excellence of food. Most resort resteraunts have over priced, and indifferent foods, served to their captive audience. Room service or bar menus, are defined as, what you are serviced, is the best you are going to get.

The Ranga, proved both mites totally worng. Excellent food, starting with one of the best ham and cheese sandwiches, we have had anywhere, to lamb and chicken , was of exceptional quality. If that was said about the fish, then that was to be expected, but chicken.....

My compliments to the a mangement who have done an exceptional job, all around.
