If you are heading for a quality moment in the Blue Lagoon we recommend a visit, after dipping into the smooth warm water, to Kaffi Bryggjan (Café Harbour) restaurant. It's located only a few minutes away drive away, in the small neighbouring Grindavík fishing town. Or just head straight there if you are hungry and order their delicious lobster soup. 

If you don't take our words for how good the harbour café's soup is, Sigourney Weaver can vouch for it.

When the American actress was asked about her "Best meal eaten on a trip" in a brand new interview by magazine Condé Nast Traveler, she gave this answer:

"In Iceland, we were taken to a wonderful little fishing village outside Reykjavík called Grindavík, where there was a lovely café called Bryggjan frequented by actual fishermen. The walls were lined with “Best Fisherman” plaques covered in amazing family names that were a meter long! And they had this lobster soup—very thick and hot and served with fresh bread. That saved us; otherwise, we would have all come down with pneumonia."

In the interview the star of the epic Alien films also recommends always packing a turtleneck, a true words of wisdom for all seasons in Iceland.
