Did not have high expectations going in to this dinner since it is located in one of the most touristy places in Iceland. They certainly proved me wrong. From the moment we sat down, the service was perfect. Craft cocktails were amazing and the homemade...More

We added the 4 course tasting menu with wine pairings, on to our Blue Lagoon spa package. The food and wine were delicious, but expensive. We enjoyed the whole experience and we’re glad we visited LAVA. If you’re a foodie, this is for you.

We had reservations for 5 and it was virtually empty. If you have a reservation they make sure you get to a table. A large majority of the restaurant has windows so you can see out 360 degrees around the lagoon. I don't know... More
