All I heard about was that if you go to one restaurant in Iceland, this one was it, so my expectation levels were extremely high. Fjorubordid exceeded them by leaps and bounds. We decided to go all in and participate in the 3 course feast. First came the lobster soup. This was very rich and had a surprising kick to... More

Booked into the charming -- yes, I mean charming! -- youth hostel in Selfoss, we drove 15 minutes to the seaside town of Stokkseyri for dinner. (No, I am not a "youth", but hostels are great options in Iceland.) Our meal at Fjorubordid was the gustatory highlight of our driving trip along the southern coast of Iceland. My friend and... More

We were taken here for dinner by our hosts at the end of our conference. I was nervous to begin with having not really eaten lobster before but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was amazing and plentiful and in its own was unique. Definitely recommend this place .

We got lobster soup ( delicious). Also the langoustine dish and was great. One big for 2 more than enough. The place is nice and the waiters quite busy but even with time to ask you if was good and talk a bit when they can. We where there in a very high traffic but we got a great service... More

Came here for dinner for two and had the 3 course menu recommended by a local, including lobster soup, fresh lobster and choice of cakes for dessert. To set expectations - these lobsters are not the big foot long variety, they are the small ones like very large shrimp/ king prawns. Regardless, they are cooked in a herb and garlic... More

Fjorubordid is a nice place close to Reykjavik and Selfoss for eating lobster and langoustine (but not the best in Iceland...). The langoustines are tasty, very well-cooked. The staff is efficient but very fast... It is not a place for slow food... The price are quite expensive. In conclusion : the food is excellent but maybe the success of the... More

We read about Fjorubordid in a travel book and we purposely stopped by this small town just so we could experience the restaurant. This was our last dinner in Iceland and it did not disappoint. We loved everything about this place. The restaurant was located by the seashore and it has a nautical vibe. We ordered a three course menu... More
