At & around Grindavík

Grindavík is a small fishing town at the Southern Peninsula at the southwest coast of Iceland, one of the few towns with a harbour at the coast. Most of the inhabitants; around 2,400 people work in the fishing industry. The Blue Lagoon, Grindavík’s most famous attraction, is located about 5 km away from the town. (from

It’s a lovely and picturesque place marked on the touristic route in Iceland. However, since I no longer consider myself a tourist here I must look for alternative reasons to visit some of the places. 😉

Therefore, me and the family decided to visit one restaurant there. It’s called Papa’s Restaurant and everyone who happens to pass by or stay over there should get some nice dinner there.

The range of dishes served varies and you can get basically whatever you wish for; vegetarian dishes also available, and a nice terrace in the summertime. 😉

We headed there only for one reason, though. PIZZA!

I love pizzas and I must admit that it’s been ages (or it’s been since I was in Naples) that I last ate such a good pizza. Felt almost like Italy. Almost probably because of the location. 😉 But nonetheless, the crust was thin and crispy, toppings fresh and tasty, just as I like it.

If you happen to drive by Grindavík and you feel like hungry, I totally recommend the place. You can also find it on TripAdvisor!

After such lovely food and with a nice weather accompanying us, we decided to have a drive around. The area is famous for lava fields and geothermal area with hot springs called Krýsuvík. The photos from this trip in my next post.

Stay tuned!
