Third time to this little gem. Wonderfully relaxed and absolutely delicious lobster tails. Served to the table in a brass cooking pot. The sides are equally delicious. I would actually go to Iceland just to eat here! Ive been for both lunch and dinner and the little each is lovely for a walk afterwards. Great service, friendly and exact

This small bistro on the Southern coast was worth the detour on our way to Glacier Lagoon. We all had the lobster soup as a main meal, 3200 kroner each. We had plenty for 4 big eaters for lunch. It's the same menu for dinner. Set your expectations about the "lobster" as it's really a largish langoustine. If you're a... More

Not my first visit but this time we came as a group, we were a group of 8 persons and we had a group deal. The langustine lobster was just absoloutly amasingly good but there were some bires that were not ok. The staff was really nice and helpful and again the food was amazing. Highly recommend!

Had this place on our radar from a blog entry that I read which raved about the soup. We were there at an odd time (2pm) as we were driving back to the city from vik. It was quite the detour down unpaved roads but well worth the journey!!! We indulged in the 3 course meal and didn't regret it... More

We set out for this restaurant after a hard days drive on the south coast of Iceland, having seen Rick Stein rave about the lobster soup on his program about Iceland. As you would expect, Rick was spot on and the soup was fantastic. We arrived at the restaurant at around 6pm, to find the restaurant very quiet, with only... More

We ended up on a bit of a detour to this place one lunchtime as the restaurant we had wanted to go to was closed. This place had excellent reviews so caught my eye. I have to say the Lobster soup was delicious, we had the main course version which was 0.5 litres and as much bread as you could... More

Beautiful setting- out of the way but worth the trip. The lobster soup is dreamy- and the lobster was superb. The side dishes were good but the lobster was the star of the meal- have been there four times and each time the food was great- service was friendly-

The langoustines are soooooo tasty and sweet. The soup is soooooo rich and hearty. And not just the seafood is excellent. The lamb is moist and succulent. Flavours are all fantastic! If you stay in Hotel Grimsborgir, this is a far better and cheaper option!!!

We had read reviews and had seen a TV program which had been to Fjorubordid. The restaurant was simple and the food was excellent. The restaurant is quite hidden from the outside, but once you are inside you are taken away with the smells of the wonderful food! We ate as party of 5, 4 adults and one teenager. I... More

The lobster soup was superb. The lobster dish was clean, honest and delicious. I'd skip the side dishes next time as others have mentioned in the reviews as they do not add to the experience. The focus should definitely be on the lobster! It is expensive. But then when I think about how much a three-course meal (two lobster based)... More

Description
At the seashore the giant lobster makes appointments with mermaids and Landlubbers. He waves his large claws, attracting the desire to be in the company of starfish and lumbfish. The village's corrugated iron houses, located just above its harbour, smack of ocean fragrance and seahorses. The village is named Stokkseyri and it sits just sixty thousand metres from Icelands capital, with a view of volcanoes, the ocean and endless hayfields. Under the stars, an even more important journey takes place - across salivating tongues, beautiful stomachs and joyful minds...
