Food from Plant to Plate at Friðheimar Restaurant

Are you looking for culinary delight and a dining experience like no other? Do you love tomatoes and fancy trying a three course meal themed entirely around them? Then book a table amongst the tomato plants (literally) at Friðheimar, a rustic, family run restaurant in Reykholt.

Where can I Find Unique Food Experiences in South Iceland?

Visit Friðheimar, a rustic farm restaurant where the tables are set right in the middle of a greenhouse!

The restaurant offers a varied selection of dishes, including their famous tomato soup, tortilla and pasta dishes and locally caught mussels in tomato sauce for the main, and even tomato and apple pie or cheesecake with green tomato jam for desert. Cleanse your palette with tomato schnapps in an edible shot glass or go the whole hog and try one of their various bloody mary cocktails.

After eating why not catch the history and gait horse show in the farm outside the restaurant, or join in on a greenhouse tour and partake in a short, informative lecture about the challenges of growing tomatoes in cold, dark Iceland.
