Stayed two nights in the cabins and had breakfast and dinner both nights in the restaurant. Menu is small, but has good variety. Ate pizza one night and a burger the next. Very few people there at this time of year.

Ate here twice, lunch and dinner. Our visit was in October so there were not many people at the restaurant. Food was excellent, with several Icelandic specialties. The restaurant was recommended by several locals.....good recommendation.

Arhus is located along the Ranga River, 100 km east of Reykjavik on the Ring road, Route 1. It is set in idyllic fields on the banks of the river. The restaurant serves a rich variety of local plates and global favourites. We also have a fully-stocked bar and a terrace overlooking the river, perfect for relaxing on a sunny evening.
