You dine in a big room just next to the blue lagoon. It has a very lava like style. The staff is really nice and the food very good. I would definitely go again.

After visiting the Blue Lagoon, it's great to have lunch or dinner at the Lava Restaurant. Food is delicious & service is good. Don't forget to order the complimentary sparkling wine which goes with the premium package.

We had booked dinner at Lava together with an early evening booking at the Blue Lagoon and it was quite a nice experience on our first night in Iceland. Although service was slow and a few tables around us were promptly attended to before us,...More

When I visited last month the restaurant was near full (approx 140 people), of which about 9-10 were in robes - just as a heads up... It's acceptable but you'll be very outnumbered.
