We were staying at the Hotel Reykjahlid and had dinner at the sister hotel, Hotel Reynihilid. The restaurant’s name is Restaurant Myllan. It is hard to find a bad meal in Iceland! This was another delicious meal. But the meals had better be good, for the price they cost in U.S. dollars. This one was $98.00 for the two of... More

We had dinner in Restaurant Myllan. Classy interior. Friendly staffs. The home made tagliatelle con verdure with garlicbread (ISK 2900) and club sandwich with chicken, bacon, vegetables and mustard saure (ISK 2800) are tasted great.

The service was excellent, Paul who was on duty that night was very attentive to my needs, providing full details on the items on the menu and always double-checking that the meal was to my satisfaction. The Arctic Char was very well prepared, the Geysir bread served was very wholesome and local. The restaurant has a good wine list as... More

Do not eat here. From start to finish it was a disaster. In all my 52 years on the planet this is in the top ten 'worst meals' We ordered a bottle of white wine which was served by a waiter who'd had a charisma bypass. The wine was left on the table, then 10 minutes later an ice bucket... More

This hotel restaurant was billed as the best and most upscale in Myvatn, but it is over rated. We started off with the fish soup which was acceptable. The dinner entrees we chose were the risotto and Icelandic Char. The risotto was dry, not creamy and lacked much flavor although it was supposed to be sundried tomato and blue cheese.... More

Yes, the decor is outdated, but this is not the problem. The food and service are. Food: - very small, but expensive starters. Seafood soup watery, lukewarm and hardly any fish for approximately 2200 kroners. Same prices as much richer soup at Ranga hotel. - main dishes arrived late, lukewarm (my husband's) or cold and overcooked (mine). - we returned... More

We ate here twice during our stay in the hotel and on both occasions the food was very good, however on one of the nights we had to wait for 50 minutes before our first course arrived - and no one thought to explain what was happening before we complained. For the cost (which is expensive) it was therefore disappointing.... More

The staff - especially the lady serving us - is very moitivated and interested in happiness of the guests. Even special wishes are fullfilled with a big smile: we asked for a tasting menue (although this was not mentioned on the card), and a combination of the best dishes have specially been prepared for us, without any surcharge.

Arriving late and very wet in Myvatn, we had a warm welcome and some very good food in Restaurant Myllan. The food was good enough to encourage us to book for a second night. Fresh local produce - the Arctic Char especially recommended. Friendly service. The only downside was the rather dated and sterile dining room
