Taste real Icelandic Food

While having dinner, our guests are invited to a panoramic view of the glaciers and mountains in the realm of Vatnajökull National Park. Our specialties are fish dishes and traditional Icelandic food. Árnanes restaurant offers a diverse menu, with emphasis on healthy food and fresh ingredients. With that in mind we use selected local produce from our area which is called Vatnajökull Region. The lobster (languistine) and the fish of the day come from the town Höfn (6 km). The beef, the lamb and the potatoes are from our area. Even one of our beers is locally produced, it’s name is Vatnajökull. Most of the salad and fresh herbs we serve are organically grown in our own garden. Our ambition is to serve tasty food and quality wines at a reasonable price.

For the most current information and specifics on our dining options, please inquire at reception during your stay.
