  • Best tomato soup I've ever had. Tip: if you don't want to spend 2300 kroner on a soup and bread buffet, go to the bar and get a bowl of soup with a piece of bread for 1100 kroner instead. We went during the busy summer season at around 4pm and the wait without a reservation for a table was 45 min. No wait for the bar. Would want to try the tomato ice cream next time when I have more money! It also looked very cool to dine next to the garden.
  • We discovered this farm and restaurant on a TV show that featured it for the tomato soup. The dining experience could not have been better. The setting is amazing; located inside a green house surrounded by vines of fresh tomatoes. Workers are tending to the plants and harvesting the ripe tomatoes just steps from your table. The staff was super friendly. Our server was attentive and told us how the restaurant came to be, how the growing process works, and what makes their tomatoes so special. The menu centers entirely around their tomatoes. There is a table of warm soup surrounded by many types of bread for dipping; the soup is all you can eat. There are also a few other items like pizza (tomato soup, fresh mozzarella, on a fresh tortilla) and is a good size to share with another person if you also do the soup. The bar menu includes a number of bloody marys made using their house tomatoes. Everything was ridiculously delicious and well worth the trip. There are also bottles of soup to buy and take home. Fridheimar Farm is a MUST.
  • Cool place and concept. That's it. Got Tortilla in a take away box althought we said to eat in the bistro. We had to change the table because of a group. On our table wasn't any reservation sign. Waiter was standing behind us without even asking us to help move our stuff to the bar where we have to go. Standing there and eating soup. Really?! Soup was good, including one piece of bread, and no refill for 23$. As we were finished, still no group there..
  • This was a great experience. Being able to dine on fresh tomato dishes while actually inside of the green house was amazing. This is definitely worth checking out while you're in Iceland. Just note, in case you are allergic there are live bees buzzing around.
  • The tomato soup buffet lives up to all the hype. It's very simple, fresh tomato soup with freshly baked bread in many varieties. The tables have add ins for your soup - fresh basil to cut, sour cream, and cucumbers. We also tried the pasta, which was excellent.
