Thought the food was be gimmicky and small but I was pleasantly surprised. The portions were big and tasty (yes the price is expensive but Iceland is expensive everywhere) The dessert was the highlight of the meal. Plus they gave it me complimentary because it was my birthday :) Caramel mousse with ice cream and crumble was amazing!!! We were... More

We booked a table after a day in the blue lagoon, really relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant, we made our choices from the menu, and chose not to order wine which was too expensive we chose the local beer Gull which is good. As we were four women we were chatting and drinking in the atmosphere we hardly noticed it... More

Amazing just like the rest of the blue lagoon staff welcoming and very polite!! Even more so it allows you to look out onto the blue lagoon while your eating! Your first glass of wine is free and food is not that expensive must visit

With the luxury package. The sparkling wine was delicious. We had the set seafood menu which was beautifully cooked and presented but very filling, 2 courses would be enough. The service was great but like everything in Iceland, very expensive

We had lunch at Lava after enjoying the Blue Lagoon. This was our first meal in Iceland but from my Tripadvisor research I was prepared for the expensive cost. We had a nice table by the window overlooking the lagoon and lava rocks. The food was good and the service was impeccable. I had the cod which I enjoyed but... More

Great service and food. One of our party asked for gluten free bread and they brought out no problem and the other rolls were super tasty Soup and haddock starter were lovely and beef tenderloin and lamb mains fantastic ! Deserts of poached pear and baked apple also fab! The perfect ending to our visit to the blue lagoon

The Blue Lagoon itself is very much a man made "tourist trap" that is very crowded and commercial. Lava, found inside the building, was thus surprisingly well appointed and served excellent meals. We ate lunch here before bathing in the Lagoon on the last day of our trip, prior to flying home. One of our party ordered the vegetarian special... More

We went to the lava on recommendation from the silica hotel. The atmosphere was more of a banquet hall that had been temporarily outfitted as a restaurant. Food was excellent. Service was good - however we must have had 4 waiters (from seating to check) Wait staff were persistent to take your order, but almost non existent when it came... More
