About
Learn about farm life in Iceland at Fridheimar, where the star of the show is tomatoes. The farm harnesses geothermal energy and uses artificial lights and a climate-control system to grow tomatoes and other vegetables all year round. Seize the chance to eat in the greenhouse alongside four different varieties of tomato plants. You'll get to try tomato soup, tomato ice cream, and even tomato beer. In the summer months, you can also check out the horse show, and meet the horses at the stable. Fridheimar is often visited together with a Golden Circle tour from Reykjavik. – Tripadvisor

We visited on Friday 12th May in the afternoon and on arrival we were told that the restaurant was full, but we could still go to the bar for some soup. At the bar you can have the same starters and deserts as in the restaurant, but only one serving of soup and bread. The bar area was extremely busy. We returned to the reservations and asked about a booking for the restaurant, for the next day, as we were still in the local area, and we booked for the late afternoon. We arrived slightly early and our table was not available, but we were able to look around and read the information about the farm. After 5 minutes a very friendly waiter appeared and called our name, our table was ready. We had the most delicious tomato soup and a selection of different breads, cucumber salsa and sour cream to accompany it. In the restaurant you can have as many visits to refill your soup bowl and bread, as you want. We also tried the fish and chicken skewers and both were delicious. My husband tried the tomato latte and this was very nice. For desert we had the three sorbets, again wonderful. Our advice is to go to this restaurant while you are holidaying in Iceland, especially if you are a fan of tomato soup, but pre-book a table in the restaurant, for a really great experience.

The hype of this place is 100% accurate. This place is incredible. And you definitely need reservations or you’ll sit at the bar area and just not get the same experience. The server spent a long time explaining the concept of this place, which we loved. Got the tomato soup buffet and the heirloom with burrata. Everything was fantastic. The tomato latte we got for the experience which was very interesting, but not overly tomato flavored. The multigrain-ish bread with butter was just a fantastic bite. This is an absolute must stop.

Stopped here as part of a tour. Was a lovely place to stop (warm and dry) interesting to see them working on harvesting the tomatoes while we ate.
Soup is crazy expensive but is all you can eat plus bread. Also free tea and coffee.
The owner also has horses you can say hi to.

We had a short visit, we did not eat, but the food looked delicious and it was interesting to hear their story and see the tomatoes. We also got a demonstration of the Icelandic horses and their different gaits. Thank you SO much!

Unexpectedly terrible. We ordered mussels and Ravioli. The Ravioli is average, not to good level. The most terrible one is the mussels, very smelly and not fresh…Couldn’t imagine why the chef can serve this quality to table. Smelly mussels should be quite easy to identify.

In conclusion, so far this is the worst experience over the past 15 days in Iceland.

This was an impromptu return visit to Friðheimar after we'd been back to see the geysir Strokkur (watching that never gets old!) and luckily they were able to fit us in, but it's always best to pre-book. Our waiter, Julio, was just the sunniest personality you could wish for, so cheerful, friendly, enthusiastic, fun and encouraging, we loved him, he really made our visit, what an asset! Your server will tell you all about the history and processes of the greenhouses, it's truly fascinating. The guy behind the bar was also great too, cheerful, polite, efficient and friendly, what a team! The tomato soup, made from tomatoes grown right beside you, is just gorgeous, so fresh, bright and tasty, and there's a basil plant on your table for you to season it at will. The soup and hunks of glorious fresh home baked bread and butter are 'all you can eat' so both delicious and great value for money. You can jazz it up if you wish by adding skewers, veg /cheese /chicken /seafood. There are also pasta and tortillas and other things on the menu, including a surprising range of tomato based desserts too, which we didn't have room for this time but I can tell you the ice cream and crumble from a previous visit are well worth a try! We also had tomato beer and tomato tea, thumbs up for both. It won't be our last visit, that's for sure, a real gem. There is also a horse show in the summer, or in the winter a stable tour option, with a single horse demo of the 5 gaited Icelandic horse, which we did last year, brilliant.

We were told without a reservation we could only have soup and bread in the bar. There were at least a dozen empty tables the entire time we were there. It was NOT busy. The soup and bread were delicious. We also got the tomato ice cream and tomato and cucumber sorbet- both delicious. Would have liked to sit down at a table and enjoy a little more time there tho.

Great quirky place for a visit after a stop at the Secret Lagoon. We ate tomato soup from the buffet, accompanied by delicious bread with pickled cucumber, then a flatbread with pesto and vegetables, and Icelandic burrata with heirloom tomatoes. I had a Virgin Mary and the other half had a tomato beer. Total cost was around £80. Left completely stuffed and tomatoed out but would definitely recommend popping in if you’re in the area. Booking is a must as they were fully booked on a Monday in March with only space left in the bar area (where menu is restricted to soup and desserts).

We'd seen this place on Channel 4's Travelman so made sure to book a Golden Circle tour that included a stop there.

It exceeded expectations and actually ended up being quite a highlight.

To start with we were given an introduction to the stables and the horses. Plus a demonstration of their unique gaits. The horse were starting to shed coats, I was covered after petting them but I loved it.

Then a small tour of the greenhouses, history to the farm and how it all works. Utterly fascinating and puts my tomato plants at home to shame.

We had the soup and bread buffet whilst sat at a table reserved for our tour group. Such a quirky place to eat and whilst we were there the skies changed from grey to blue, before we headed off to see the other sights.
