So glad we were able to get in for dinner, even without prior reservation. The restaurant is huge, almost all tables are occupied and yet we were well attended to - so yay! great service ! The lamb was perfectly prepared and just the right portion. Fish was great too.

Before you get in to the blue lagoon, and if you are interested in trying some good and yummy food, reserve your table for after the lagoon experience. Very nice, simple, but in the same time chic place to eat in. Little bit expensive and slow service but the food is really good.

The staff were very attentive and showed us to our table straight-away. They were very informative about the menu too, explaining what everything was and what it came with. Everything was cooked to perfection and presented in an appetising way. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and they piped 'Happy Anniversary' around our dessert plates, a nice touch. We had our 2 year old grandson with us but that didn't phase them at all, a high chair was provided and he ate his fish with gusto.

Perfect place to eat after soaking in the Blue Lagoon. We had reservations through our luxury package purchased at the gate. My husband and I had dessert- "Ástarpungar" & caramel which was chocolate mousse, vanilla ice cream, salted caramel. This was delicious. We also had -"Strawberries," Coconut, mint, almonds... this was one of the best desserts I've ever had. Being from the United States we both agreed we never had strawberries as fresh and perfect as the ones in this desert. We finished off with champagne. My favorite part was that you can dine in your robe before 4pm. This put our Blue Lagoon experience over the top!
