I'm already planning to come back to Iceland and more specifically to visit some of their amazing hotels lost within nature’s most amazing settings… Hotel A is one of them. With a view to the river, this hotel hosted a simple flavorful lunch I enjoyed.

Park the car and access the lobby, you’ll find the restaurant and bar. All the main services of this hotel are found in one large rectangular shaped room divided by a chimney in its middle. Towards the end of the room, you’ll find a large glass facade, which gives a panoramic view to the valley. 

It’s breathtaking to the extent you can enjoy a few hours relaxing your senses… 

Lunch started with the Icelandic fish soup served in a mug. All ingredients are mashed and offer a zesty and flavorful soup, with a hint of smooth saltiness, fish content in a full-bodied liquid.

On the buffet table was a piece of lamb, potatoes with fresh cream, salad, hot bowls of Barley, tomatoes, grilled vegetables, fish, a fruit basket and two choices of desserts and some bowls of strawberry and whipped cream. 

Lunch was simple yet very tasty - juicy fish, tender meat, exotic vegetables and unique bowls of Barley, something I have never had before. Everything I had was rich in flavor.

I ended my lunch with some apple crumble, chocolate fondant and strawberry dipped in whipped cream.

At the bar, a coffee machine brews fresh coffee on demand.

This was a quick introduction to the hotel. A place that serves tasty food… I am hoping to come back here again on my next visit to Iceland.
