Our restaurant and its adjacent catering- and facility rooms occupy the old quarters in which the long gone Vatnsholt farm hey- & cow-barn used to be, both of which have been carefully converted into an exquisite cathedral ceiling open space eatery and bar – beautifully designed with capacity up to 300 guests. These are three separated rooms, two of which (the smaller rooms) can be opened up and turned into one adjoining room for up to 80 guests.
Blind Raven is a dark restaurant, meaning there is no light. The guests do not see the food they are enjoying. The basic concept is that the removal of vision enhances the other senses and increases gastronomic pleasure. Since 1999 such restaurants have opened in many parts of the world. At Blind Raven, you will experience the exquisite Icelandic Cuisine and your favorite food in a different light or actually no light at all!
Vatnsholt is surrounded by the magnificent Icelandic nature which guests can easily explore. We, the owners have a reputation for being nature- and animal lovers. For years we have kept a small collection of domesticated animals which our guests have lovingly called Lilliputian Zoo.
The Northern Lights are a spectacular natural occurrence which appears in the dark sky from September to April near the Earth’s poles around the Arctic and Antarctic Circles. This surreal phenomenon can light up the night sky and take on breathtaking shapes and colors to the awe and wonder of those who are lucky enough to witness it.
Outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers feel at home in Southern Iceland. Not only does the southern region have amazing places to visit but a lot of activities as well. These activities include river rafting, hiking, fishing, climbing, horseback riding and many more.
