We stopped here late like 7pm and so glad we found this place. Very relaxing atmosphere as is most of places in Iceland. We had a pizza and it was amazing. There was a bit of a wait for it but there was a huge...party ahead of us. Didn't bother us we just chilled and had a few drinks. The area is a MUST STOP FOR CAMPERS. There is so much for kids to do here and nice bathrooms. There's a trampoline for kids. We saw horse riding and much more.More

For some reason Skjól is very hyped on TA, I'm not sure why, being rated as No. 1 in the Geysir area is simply not correct, we had better food in the area. Food is OK, but nothing special, so it must be because the...place serves as a heating room for wet and frozen campers from the nearby campsite. If you have ever questioned whether you can get too much cheese on a pizza, then you get the answer here: Yes!!! I've eaten pizzas in many countries, but I have NEVER before had a pizza that was "drowned" in cheese. On the other hand, the pizzas are very large and filling (a 19" pizza is ample for two people), and prices are very reasonable for Iceland.More

Our pizza was actually amazing. The WCs were clean. The jumping pillow out front was a hit. The staff was so friendly. Prices were reasonable and the hours were good. We had a wonderful 8-9pm dinner here after finishing visiting Gulfloss and I was so...glad I'd found them here on Tripadvisor! Highly recommended!More

Just needed a pizza and a beer! Came to this restaurant several years ago and was glad to see it open after the COVID opening. Pizza, beer and service was great! Best of luck in the reopening!

Cozy restaurant with fantastic burgers. We had bernaise and BBQ burger, and they both tasted delicious. Nice employees and good service. Perfect place to eat lunch when doing the golden circle.

This restaurant was very good and kid friendly. If you are staying in the town of Geysir it is only 5 minutes away from the center of town (not that the town has much but a middle). They offered affordable meal prices and something on...the menu for everyone. You can find kind servers here. Also games like darts, chess, and Uno were available to play. There is also a camp site in the field behind it so you can use very clean restrooms with showers. I would recommend this restaurant for everyone in need of some good food + service in the middle of nowhere.More
