Only cake was being served when 6 of us arrived. Staff were surly and made us feel unwelcome. They also kept forgetting our order even though it was coffee and cake. a dissappointed given such nice staff in museum and such good reviews for food here. Cake was nice though.

Buffet lunch including Soup, Bread, Salad else are wonderful taste. Only 2,200 ISK per person, this charge is better than reasonable. Don't forget to order fish dishes that you won't regret.

We stopped here for lunch as part of a tour. We only wanted a light lunch so opted for the soup and bread - the soup was very good. There was also a salad buffet which looked fresh and nice also. The service was good, and we very much enjoyed our lunch here.

Tucked away in a non descript corner of Borgarnes, this restaurant stands up to the mark in all respects. It's at a beautiful location where you can watch the sea feordes insinuating between the land masses, offering amazing views... U have to walk out a little bit. Restaurant itself is tastefully made with a well stocked shop of Icelandic products... More

Thank you so much for your very kind review. So glad you appreciated the choices on our menu. We do try to cater for the hungry traveller and families - both with simple food and a little more elaborated dishes as the lobster and the mussles. Good that you found shelter from the rain and wind. Now the weather is... More

Stopped here on our way back to Reykjavik from visiting the Snæfellsnes Penninsula. We had the burger (from Iceland beef) and the Lobster tail pasta. Both were the most amazing things we had eaten in Iceland. The atmosphere of the restaurant is amazing, super modern but at the same time, one side of the restaurant looks like it is coming... More

The food was amazing! My husband had the lamb (best meal he had in Iceland) and I had lasagne. The waitresses were very friendly and helpful especially when we asked about the best places to view the Northern Lights.

Thank you so much for your very generous review. Do hope you found the northern lights. Enjoy your stay but drive carefully the roads are very slippery and the wind strong at the moment. (Feb. 24th 2017) Best regards Sigridur Margret More
