I have never been anywhere like this place. As as gardener I was in heaven. Eating inside a warm bright greenhouse is a very cool experience. I love the story of the palace. The staff are wonderful and the dishes are very creative, unique, and...More

I've read some of the reviews and am bewildered with some of the poor reviews. This is a great place and such a good idea. We were pre-booked as part of a tour group and arrived at lunchtime. The tomato soup is probably the best...More

Incredible, sustainably and locally sourced foods . Everything has a tomato theme to it. Ambiance is great, service is friendly (as is everyone in Iceland) and food was just perfect. Definitely try the cheesecake and apple & tomato pie desserts

We had a memorable lunch at this restaurant in the middle of the greenhouse. We were seated next to hydroponic tomato plants and we had a basil plant on our table with special scissors to cut it up and put in our food. The soup,...More

Who cares if it's touristy? I'd do it again. All you can eat yummy soup with fresh basil (you cut it yourself) and super yummy bread including olive bread. Yumm... in a lovely environment. I wish I had ordered a stick / skewer to add...More

We showed up without a reservation and it worked out just fine. Half our group doesn't like tomatoes so they didn't really care if we got a table. While we waited for our table, we were able to go to the bar and get drinks...More

Fridheimar is not very far from Geysir so you certainly can detour there during a Golden Circle tour. I've been to Iceland 3x and the only time I did a tour was to an ice cave in March 2017 (because you can't do an ice cave... More

It's around $20 USD. Given how expensive restaurants can be in Iceland, this is not bad and you can eat all you want. Be sure and make a reservation or you'll end up at the bar. I highly recommend adding a dollop of sour... More
