On the drive back from Vik to the airport, we stopped to try the soup and langoustines. Considering we licked our plates clean, it was absolutely worth the stop. The soup really is magical - and it hit the spot on a cold, Iceland day....More

I was driving by the south coast and stopped at Fjöruborðið for the soup. As usual it was awesome and the home made bread is a bonus to the soup

Our tour brought us here, in a quasi-tepee to gorge on Langoustines. They were marvelous, in a garlicky sauce, with bread to dip in it and salads. Great fun, fresh delicious shellfish and lovely view of the coast behind the restaurant.

Description
At the seashore the giant langoustine makes appointments with mermaids and landlubbers. He waves his large claws, attracting the desire to be in the company of starfish and lumpfish. The village´s corrugated iron houses, located just above its harbour, smack of ocean fragrance and seahorses. The soup is magical. It is suitable for numerous occasions and happy moments on ordinary days, but Fjöruborðið takes no responsibility for consequences or stirring adventures that could result from ingesting it. It has a will of its own and, as such, it is risky for those who don't want to venture beyond the average. This is the most famous langoustine soup in the Republic of Iceland, prepared by handsome cooks who step naked out of the ocean at Stokkseyri with their catch.
