The location is superb, we got a seat over seeing the blue lagoon which was great. As the evening draws in, the lights outside come on and show off the beauty of the blue lagoon. The menu is pricey to be honest. We knew that...More

It could have been worse, really. The food was fine. Not exciting, not the best we had in Iceland -- not even close to the best we had in Iceland. But the cost - quality ratio was a problem. You know you are going to...More
