Some places to dine in our neighborhood.

When coming on your Icelandic horse tour at Langhus, you might want to dine close by us, before or after your horseback ride.  Here are some dining options close by.  I’m emphasizing here on places that are open all year round (many restaurants in Iceland are closed in the wintertime).

All this information was gathered in February 2018 and is of course subject to change (you can contact the restaurants for updated info).  But, if you’re bored with all the hamburgers and pizzas in the fast food joints, and by the expensive menus in many of the restaurants, here are nice options for other food in our neighborhood.  This information is here simply because people are often asking me for ideas about where to eat, and I’m emphasizing on cost effective places with “real food” close to us that are open all year round.  By using the links at the bottom of this page you find a lot more options in our vicinity, especially in the summertime.

At Lónkot (10 min. drive south from us): 

Lónkot is an exception here in this list, as it is a bit fancier restaurant and only open in summer, but the closest option to us, with good menu in beautiful surroundings in the open landscape by a beach, at a former farm, 10 min. drive from us.  Good fancy menu, a bit more expensive than some of the other options.  ONLY open 10.
