As we explored the south of Iceland and made our way west towards Reykjavik, we stopped for a bite to eat at this restaurant called Gamla Fjosid (or old cow house). It is located on Route 1 just at the foot of the great glacier/volcano Eyjafjallajökull which erupted in 2010. From the outside it didn’t look like much, but inside is absolute charm galore. Formerly a cow shed, it has since been converted into a restaurant serving delicious meals using local ingredients and meats from its farm.
