We’ve been dining all over Iceland, yet this one is definitely one of the finest.
It’s located in one of the most popular tourist places – Blue Lagoon.
After dipping yourself into the geothermal bath after a long hour, a bubbling wine and a light meal is what you deserve.
The decoration in LAVA Restaurant is a mixture of modern and mixture, with lava cliff and big windows to the lagoon / swimming area.
They used to serve the best sushi in the country during lunch time, and now they are selling them in the Café area.
I had a non-alcoholic cocktail drink , which is a blender of smashed strawberries and basils, refreshing and very lady-like.
Starter: Porched artic char with picked cucumber, picked pearl onion.
The fish is cooked into perfection, melt right into your mouth.
Main: Grilled cleric root with spiced chickpeas and dill oil.
For dessert we chose a cheese plate, they’re all Icelandic cheese.
Clockwise from top to bottom are : white moulded cheese (4 weeks), Gull (another white moulded cheese, a bit stronger than the former one), Yellow cheese (12 month), Blue cheese and the most interesting one “ljótur”(which means ugly in English), it’s a cheese between white moulded and blue cheese.
It’s the first time I tried to pair blue cheese with chocolate, and it’s not bad at all.
So if you’re travelling to Iceland, please stop by Lava Restaurant, I’m sure you’ll not be regretted.
