Good range of choices on the menu, anything from some local specialities (horse / lamb) through to more standard options like pasta, pizza, burgers, etc. Food was tasty enough (we went for a standard option) without being remarkable. Limited but varied enough choice for children...More

I ate here 2 nights in a row as I stayed here at their cabins. The food was very good, and the hot chocolate was excellent. My only complaint was that the food was a bit pricey, even for Iceland (in my opinion).

Food is relatively fine. When you travel to country side, you need to lower your expectation in any expect. You can actually watch the Aurora Borealis from the patio of the restaurants after dinner.

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.
