Ambitious with a view of the lagoon

There is always smoke hovering over the Blue Lagoon because, whatever the season, the air temperature is always colder than the 37° volcanic water. A lunch or dinner at Lava with its tall panoramic windows facing the lagoon reinforces the surrealistic experience. In the strictly elegant dining room the food is wild-caught and locally-grown. A rich langoustine soup has deep flavours with sea notes from the seaweed. Smoked haddock takes on the character of rutabaga and dill oil. On a turquoise plate, hot as lava, rests a perfectly cooked piece of cod on a bed of barley grains and sliced fennel to go with the cauliflower variation. It’s very beautiful. Do not miss the Icelandic donut called Ástarpungar. They have a good wine list and the service is particularly competent. By 2018, the competition around the lagoon will increase with restaurant Moss in the new five-star hotel...
