We are not the type of people who take pictures of our food. But when the fish special of the day was served at our table, everyone took out their phones, including my 85-year-old father in law! He and my mother-in-law literally said it was the freshest fish they had ever had. I had the seafood bisque, which had an amazing amount of chunks of fish as well. The atmosphere and service were both great as well. Our best dinner in Iceland!

GOTT is a vibrant, healthy and creative family owned restaurant in Westman Islands, Iceland. This restaurant strives to use only fresh and authentic ingredients and offer a variety of dishes. The fish, for example, is brought fresh from the fish market every morning. Everything they serve, including sauces, broth, soups, bread and cakes is made from scratch at the restaurant. GOTT offers excellent vegan and gluten-free choices as well as coffee and mouth watering desserts so there is really something for everyone here.
Sigurdur Gislason, a former member of the Icelandic culinary team and his wife Berglind Sigmarsdóttir own and run the restaurant. Sigurdur has worked in kitchens all over the world and published two best-selling cookbooks along with his wife so the experience and knowledge between them is evident. They run the restaurant with passion and ambition which clearly transcends into the presentation and taste of their food. GOTT restaurant continues to get excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and is rated the top restaurant in Westman Island, a testament of the high quality of both food and service and therefore you should not miss out when you are on the islands. GOTT means ‘good’ in Icelandic but like many past guests have pointed out; they should change its name to GREAT!
The Fish of Day. They bring fresh fish from the market each morning and the type of fish served depends on what is freshest that day. This means that you can eat at GOTT every lunchtime but get a different dish each time. They usually serve the Fish of the Day with homemade mashed potatoes and vegetables and top it with a shell filled with a side that pairs perfectly with the fish served that day. GOTT also has a variety of vegetarian and vegan options. We recommend their vegan burger – it’s a delicious treat served with a sweet potato and fresh salad. Because everything is made from scratch, even the bread and sauces, the burger feels homemade and authentic but the taste is the best part – just try it yourself!
