This restaurant is nestled inside the blue lagoon so you can dine in here with your robe on! We had reservations here since we got a premier experience and it came with a glass of champagne. Definitely try the tasting menu so you can sample everything. The lamb here is very tasty! Super moist and tender and does not have... More

This was a huge treat. I celebrated my birthday with my family eating 5 star cuisine in robes with an amazing view. This was one of the highlights of our trip. We did the 3 course meal. It was delicious and well presented. We had champagne and enjoyed everything.

Delicious upscale restaurant at The Blue Lagoon. The perfect way to end a day of relaxation. We soaked for hours in the lagoon, showered and changed and then went to lunch. You can go in your comfortable robe provided if you choose to go back to the hot spring again.

We had lunch at the restuarant after our visit to the lagoon. The food was fabulous! The restaurant does get very busy, we had a reservation included with our lagoon package so that helped a lot. It has lovely views out to the lagoon. Staff were all friendly.

We recently had a three course set lunch at the Lava restaurant. It is very nice in there. The service is excellent and the food was delicious. The food and drink are expensive, but we were prepared for that as everything in Iceland is very expensive! I was happy to pay the money for such good service and fab food!

After spending the day at the Blue Lagoon which was amazing we then went on to have dinner at the Lava Restaurant. The food was excellent, every dish was cooked to perfection. The ambiance was to die for !! Having the lagoon lit up in the back ground was something one would say they can tick off their bucket list... More

The Blue Lagoon prefers that you order a package online prior to arriving. We checked it out and decided on the package that included the Lava Restaurant with complimentary champagne. Service was attentive, champagne was great. We ordered appetizers, Torched Icelandic Char and Baked Yellow and Red Beets. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We don’t usually spend much money on food, but decided to splurge as we ended our visit in Iceland and so glad we did. For ISK6200 a person we enjoyed a delicious salmon salad, bread, and out of this world rack of lamb (potatoes, roasted onions). We had purchased the premium package, so we each enjoyed a class of dry... More

Really lovely good but the wine is very expensive. Not the fault of the restaurant but a result of the taxes on wine and beer imposed by the government.
