Gamla fjósið / Old Cowhouse is a family restaurant located on the farm Hvassafell in south Iceland, just beneath the magnificent mountain Steinafjall and the famous volcanic glacier Eyjafjallajökull. After the eruption in Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 tourism increased significantly in the area. The family seized the opportunity and turned an old abandoned barn into a unique restaurant.
Hvassafell is a cow farm with 70 grassfed dairy cows. The bulls born on the farm are the key ingredients in the delicious menu of the restaurant. The Old Cowhouse takes pride in offering excellent service and a delicious menu that consist of fresh, natural produce from the farm and surrounding areas.
