We stopped in Borgarnes for the first meal after landing in Iceland earlier that morning. We wanted to see the museum but also tried the restaurant after reading a few reviews. The salad buffet was outstanding. The perfect meal after a long flight. I would say there were nearly a dozen different salads and an outstanding cream of asparagus soup. Fresh baked bread that was still warm was set out for you to cut as much as you liked. The staff was very friendly and checked in with us several times. We were extremely pleased with the lunch. It was our first introduction to dining out in Iceland so the bill caught us a little off guard but it was consistent with most lunch tabs we had. Given the quality, I would rate this as a real value.

The restaurant was so good that my wife and I went twice. I tried the grilled horse during my second visit and was pleasantly surprised. Their lunch buffet was excellent. Soups, salads, bread, and desserts were top-notch. Wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The prices were good for the quality of the meals. I'd recommend this place to anyone passing through, or staying in, Borgarnes.

Our hotelier recommended this restaurant and museum and we still can't thank her enough. We both had the fish of the day with a bottle of wine and found this to be our second favorite restaurant in Iceland. The fish was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The cream sauce was light and tasty. Sides of potatoes and vegetables were delicious. Overall, a great meal!! Highly recommend!

Entering a somewhat hidden place with an entrance at a door at the back, you become overwhelmed with hospitality and real interests in what the visitor should eat or drink,

We were feeling very cold from the outside as it started to snow but after entering the centre, we felt warm immediately. Service was good, friendly staff. We ordered fish of the day and beef lasagne, it was sooooooo good!!! Price was affordable too. Inside the centre, there was a little shop selling gifts and museum too.
