I wanted to try this restaurant since it serves traditional Icelandic food. My boyfriend was very hesitant especially since horse was on the menu. However, we ended up loving our dishes! We had a vegetable soup, lasagna, chicken, and an apple cake. They were all delicious! There is also a gift shop and museum in the same place. However, we... More

Thank you so much for your very generous review. So glad you enjoyed your visit. As for the gift shop - most of our products are hand made icelandic design made by local artists not to be found anywhere else - and this explaines the price. Best regards Sigridur Margret More

We read about the settlement center as a good stop for lunch and the timing when coming from the west fjords back to Reykjavik was just right. We did have some issues finding it, as we turned into the main part of town, but eventually found it down the next road. We did not have a reservation and they made... More

Thank you so much for your kind review despite the inconvenience of the open door. I will point this out to our restaurant manager so in future the staff will be more alert. We do often have groups booked for lunch so this may have been the reason you saw empty tables and they where not sure if they had... More

I ended up going with the buffet menu, which looked really nice and fresh. And it was that and much more - there were a lot of different flavours and types of foods to try out. I especially loved the freshness of the whole buffet and that a soup and homemade bread was included - AND the best assortment of... More

It is a charming restaurant in the oldest house at Borgarnes. I had vegetarian Talharinni with spinach and pine nuts, and my husband had lamb. But the desert was the best!!! It was a typical cake "good marriage" made with oatmeal and jelly (local berries)... they have a nice gift shop behind!!! Really good food!!!

Charming cafe with back of the building into the rocks. Chicken tortilla full of fresh vegetables. Chocolate lava cake was the best I've ever had! Melted in your mouth!

My boyfriend and I were on our way back from a day on the West side of Iceland and wanted to try somewhere different, rather than the places in Reykjavik.

22k is NOT too much for the buffet and the bread loaf is awesome. A good stop on the wet and windy road road! Then can peruse the gift shop and The Settlement Exhibition. Enjoy!
