This wonderful restaurant has vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. The menu is only in Icelandic but the staff were more than happy to read it to you in English. Everything was fresh and good!

Stopped here for a light lunch on our way from Keflavik to Reykjavik via the Reykjanes Peninsula. Lovely strong coffee and freshly prepared sandwiches served by friendly, helpful staff. Relaxed and comfortable restaurant with a warm sociable atmosphere. Great introduction to eating in Iceland.

The price unbeatable! Ended with the carrot cake, it was to die for. We were so impressed, we asked to speak with the owner/operator/chef/baker (you can tell she puts... More

After checking in at the hotel in Grindavik they recommended Hja Hollu to eat lunch. Two buildings away we meet the nicest waitress ever. After ordering chicken and vegetarian lasagna we could enjoy the best meal ever. For desert I can recommend the chocolate cake with caramel sauce 😋
