The restaurant experience was superb. The food was excellent and the service along with the staff were exceptional.
The cruise to watch the northern lights was good, but we did not see the lights. The company promised to credit us for another trip.

This was an amazing experience. The whole fine dining experience in the Kopar restaurant was exceptional, the staff very attentive and every course superb. Even though we didn't get to see the Northern Lights the boat was brilliant, the atmosphere on board was lovely the crew brilliant, we even had 3 poems read out over the loudspeaker about the Lights. Highly Recommended.

Dinner was fantastic, the waitstaff at Kopar was amazing.

The Northern Lights were a 5 that night, plus it was only a little bit cold and there was no rain. So, that experience was also fantastic.

I would do this again in a heartbeat.

The food in Kopar was wonderful and took the stress out of finding somewhere to eat on our first day of arrival. The staff on the boat were really knowledgeable and very excitable when the lights appeared, which incidentally appeared at sunset. We were very lucky and saw a beautiful display.

The Kopar restaurant is very nice and the food was lovely. The table was booked automatically two and a half hours before the boat departure, however, I would recommend changing it to about three hours since we had to rush with our desserts. Unfortunately, after getting to the boat it turned out that the cruise had been canceled due to cloudy weather and we were booked for the next day. It would have been nice if they let us know a little earlier. The following evening the sky was cloudless and we manged to see a nice display of northern lights even though we've been told that it may be too late for it this time of year. The thermal overalls provided on the boat kept us nice and warm during the cruise.

The tour was fine, a boat ride out to try and see the lights which didn't cooperate. However, the woman tour guide had a rather strident voice which was a bit abrasive coming over the speaker system. The coveralls were a welcome addition to keep warm on the frigid night.

Disappointed that the lights did not provide a better display. We did see the lights on another day

Do not book this combination. Kopar dining had no information on the cruise. It is apparently a combination put together by a boating company. We were notified the cruise would then go by bus - not cruise, 30 minutes beforehand. We cancelled and had a hectic 'fine dining' dinner trying to figure out what was going on. In Reykjavik you can easily find any restaurant has a 'gourmet local' tasting menu and there are many Northern Light tours to choose from. The lights aren't every night depending on weather and other factors, so book it separately once you are in Reykjavik. The Kopar dinner had some good highlights, but the raw cold lamb I was told several times was medium. I understand the pink color but cold to the touch isn't medium. 3 out of the 9 courses were a dessert. If dessert is your preference that is fine, but I was still hungry after the 5 morsels and under cooked lamb. This was basically the only negative of my entire trip and tours to 6 countries.
