We visited Salthusid after an evening session at the Blue Lagoon. Please note that they stop serving at 9pm so plan in advance and call them. The staff were very friendly and the food well presented and delicious. The fish soup was great and prime lamb nicely cooked and very tasty. We highly recommend this restaurant, which had a great...

Salthusid was simply amazing! There was a group of 13 of us wanting to have some dinner after visiting the Blue Lagoon spa and we were greeted with open arms even though it was a bit late. The owner/chef came out to greet us and explained the menu and went out of his way to make sure the vegetarians in... More

Grindavik is not a tourist hub but more of a way point. Salthusid is right in the middle and a great spot for dinner. Super fresh fish and chips and amazing fresh trout made for a great meal. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. A gem in an otherwise fairly typical fishing village.

Great local restaurant with superb fish on offer. The trout was excellent as was the breaded cod. Similar prices to Reykjavik despite being out of the city in Grindavik. If you're in Grindavik for a pre airport stay, recommend this restaurant.

Fish soup starter glorious, as was the oven-baked salmon and fish n chips. Free bottle of water on table (means a lot in Iceland!) and two portions of bread brought at no extra charge. They even cooked my salmon just a tad more for me and brought it back with fresh jacket potato. Good service :)

Looking for a place for dinner, and decided to come here! Not many places for dinner in Grindavik, either here or Lava. We had the fish of the day which was hailbut, and the salt cod. Both were good. We also had 500ml beers and paid ISK 9400 (about US$86) just to give you an idea of the prices! Went... More

Great atmosphere, food and service. Go here after the Blue Lagoon and get the fish of the day. Looks casual on the outside, but quite beautiful inside, so don't go with half of your silica mask stuck to your hair like we did :/
