  • I adore this little place, we visited 3years previous and decided we HAD to go back to have some more of this soup. The place has changed more recently and there's a larger menu with more sit down space but they still tell the story and let you walk around their tomato plants. I'm still fascinated by the imported bees! The food there is just beautiful and the staff are wonderfully knowledgeable and friendly. Absolutely worth a trip.
  • Lovely atmosphere and a great dining experience. Awesome tomato soup, but where this place really shines for me is the quality and variety of the all-you-can-eat bread. It's all fresh and they regularly brought out even fresher bread. The olive bread is one of my two favorites that they have. I ate so much of it and it left me wanting more. The tomato ice cream was also surprisingly good!
  • Restaurant in a tomato green house, all their meals are amazing and have their own tomatoes in them. I especially recommend the tomato soup buffet. The restaurant also has a small store, where you can buy products they make out of the tomatoes.
  • An absolutely delightful experience at the farm and greenhouse! Our group began our day viewing the beautiful Icelandic horses followed by a delicious tomato lunch. Wishing this family all the very best.
  • Lovely place but be warned, if you don't like tomatoes, stay away! Otherwise, the tomato based menu has some great choices. We went for a Virgin Mary and tomato soup (best tomato soup I've had) which includes as much of the very tasty selection of breads as you like and as much tea or coffee you want afterwards.
