We found Farmhotel Efstidalur through tripadvisor. I was very curious about ‘dining with the cows’. We made a reservation and were seated at a table by the window with a nice view of the cows. It was clearly dinner time for the cows also, because soon the stable below us was full with cows. (I did smell them a little bit though.)

Of course I had to order steak. My boyfriend ordered the burger. The meat was delicious: very soft and perfectly baked. Loved it. Staff was friendly but they dropped the ball a little bit when we ordered dessert. I absolutely wanted to try the icecream made on the farm and my boyfriend ordered the chocolate cake. My icecream arrived very quickly and was delicious. But after ten minutes my boyfriend still didn’t have his dessert. We asked the waiter and just then the cake arrived. The cake was lovely, but should have arrived together with my icecream.

A pity, because we really had a lovely evening between the cows.
