Restaurant Myllan

Reviewed By Victorians63 - Bristol, United Kingdom

Arriving late and very wet in Myvatn, we had a warm welcome and some very good food in Restaurant Myllan. The food was good enough to encourage us to book for a second night. Fresh local produce - the Arctic Char especially recommended. Friendly service. The only downside was the rather dated and sterile dining room

Gamli Bistro

Reviewed By Simon H - Horsham, United Kingdom

We ate here when staying at the hotel just across the way. Super atmosphere and great burgers and beer; all, by Icelandic standards, reasonably priced. Due to being popular and very busy, the service was a little slow at times but on the whole it was good.

Kaffi Borgir

Reviewed By Mary Y - New York City, New York

This was the best meal we had in Iceland and possibly the best salmon I have ever had! Definitely stop here while in the Lake Myvatan area. You order at a register, but then sit outside where the view is beautiful. The food is top notch!

Vogafjos Cowshed Cafe

Reviewed By Summer K

By the looks of this place, you'd think it was a casual diner with mediocre food..., but you'd be wrong. This place is an EXCELLENT farm-to-table restaurant! The food is top notch. I had the lamb shank, and it was done to perfection. You could taste the red wine it was braised in. It was served with a delicious gravy, and a lovely jam that complimented the lamb beautifully. There was a fresh salad and a potato cake served with it as well. My dinning companion had the arctic char, which was perfectly pan seared. The skin was nice and crisp and the fish itself was velvety soft. Also served with a potato cake and a fresh salad, with a mild creamy cheese. We had the raw vegan chocolate peanut butter dessert, which was outstanding...a perfect combo of creamy and crunchy peanut butter filling with a crunchy chocolate top, adorned with salty peanuts. I highly recommend eating at this restaurant if you are in the area.

Daddi`s pizza

Reviewed By Mr-Cinnamon-UK - United Kingdom

Cashier/ waitress was not the most welcoming or cheerful person. We waited just under an hour for our pizza to arrive from the kitchen. When it did it was decent and tasty, though we were very hungry by this point.

Sel Hotel Myvatn

Reviewed By Cookies_Crumbles

We were in the area and we decided to have dinner there, inspired by the opinions in this app.
It was a nice dinner with kind waiters.
We had soup of the day, langoustines and trout. Everything was yummy. Totally recommended if you happen to be near.

Gigur Hotel Myvatn

Reviewed By Afoodie65 - Cold Spring, New York

On our way to explore the area around Lake Myvatn, our group of 29 Road Scholar travelers had lunch at Gigur Hotel Restaurant.
A very good salmon was served with a side of potato.
After lunch we walked some of the many trails that go around the lake. We had been warned beforehand to be prepared for midges but fortunately the insect must have been taking a summer break since we didn't encounter any pests.

Myvatn Nature Baths

Reviewed By Musx L - Rome, Italy

Very clean and well organized thermal center in myvatn. Very good quality/price for Iceland. There's a service to have a beer to drink into the swimming pool.
Full of people in july but it's fantastic to see people from every part of the world together in harmony in this magical place!
An amazing thermal place with excellent quality of the hot water. In my opinion the right time for the visit it's 3-4 hrs for a real relaxing moment during the roundtrip of Iceland.
