The most unassuming restaurant, but the most delicious meal that we had in Iceland. Our group ordered the Char, Halibut, Potatoes, Veggies, and the Lobster soup. Everything was scrumptious.

Our walking tour was cancelled at the last minute, so we decided to find the Sea Baron and have some lobster soup. It was a good decision! The soup was tasty (although the lobster was a little over-cooked and mushy for my taste), but with...More
