The lobster soup really was delicious and the best I have ever tasted. Definitely worth a detour to this restaurant. Would have given it a 5 if it had a few more choices on the menu for those who can’t eat shellfish

Okay, I admit we were 20 minutes too late for our reservation. Our table was not available anymore and the staff created a table. Flexible by accident so far. Sitting totally separate from the main restaurant part we ordered the langoustines. A lot of money...More

We were driving from Selfloss to Hella and the woman at the Ion Hotel suggested a little side trip to this town and specifically this restaurant. Well worth the extra time. We were afraid it wasn't open- very little traffic in the town, no cars...More

First things first, this restaurant does NOT serve lobsters. They are called langoustines and if it's your first time eating langoustines, this place will ensure your experience is perfect! The restaurant is absolutely deserving of every accolade - my companion ranks this as her favourite...More

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.
