Black Beach Restaurant

At One With the Environmentblach  beach vik icland icelandic icelandictimes

The magical coastline of Reynisfjara is by many considered one of the highlights of a visit to the south of Iceland, so beautiful that it’s been utilised for countless commercial and cinema opportunities. A new addition to the area is the tastefully designed Black Beach restaurant which offers local foods and services coupled with unforgettable views of the splendid shoreline and the power of the ocean.

With the steady increase of visitors, a lack of facilities became more and more apparent. Guðni Einarsson, one of the owners, says that they all agreed that they did not want to tarnish the pure landscapes and decided on a design that would blend in with the landscape and even utilise it for construction materials. The walls and floors are thus covered with gravel from the beach, which gives the restaurant added character.

The turnip soup is a favorite and always popular among hungry travellers on the go, while other lighter dishes and beverages are also available during the day, including of course the authentic Icelandic mutton soup.

An elegant meal overlooking the evening tide is an experience not soon forgotten and the perfect way to wind down after a day of travelling in the South.
