A great place to taste the Icelandic lobster

The restaurant is in a small, quiet, fishing village in the south of Iceland. We went for dinner and tried both their famous lobster soup, and the garlic lobster. The soup was rich, nice, with a great taste. Also, the roasted lobster, wich came with different dippings and sides, were tender... read more

My friend and I drove from Hveragerdi for the lobster and lobster soup, and they both were quite good. Were they fantastic? No. Were they lobster? No, not exactly, langustines are not lobsters, even though they are often called that. Was it too expensive, Yes. We did enjoy the meal, we did enjoy the decor, we did enjoy the friendly,... More

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation from our host at The House by the Sea in Stokkseyri. We had a wonderful dinner with a tasty lobster sauteed in garlic and butter. All of the staff very helpful even though every table full. The restaurant is just a 5 min walk from our B&B and we can recommend it... More

We only tried the lobster soup but it was so delicious! There was plenty of little lobsters in the soup and they were divine! The accompanying bread and sauces for the bread (one sweetish and the other creamy) were also gorgeous.

Good lobster soup and excellent lobster (the best we got in Iceland). Nice located by the sea so it invites to take a walk before/after diner and enjoy the sand and the waves. Mostly lobster (langoustine) in the menu, if you are not a fan... but they are delicious. One of the best restaurants I got the oportunity to visit... More

Beautiful location. Plan on taking a walk before or after dinner. We were on a northern lights jeep tour and our driver took us here. We had the langoustines with vegetables. The lobster was fantastic and the potatoes that were cooked in the pot- best I have ever had. The side vegetable tray was very nice. Servise was casual but... More

Ate the delicious if slightly over-priced three course menu of langoustine soup followed by lots of langoustine served in a big bowl with a neat tin bucket on the side for the shells. Sitting by the window, we had a view of the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean - I think I would have been less impressed with the... More

I was part of a large group visiting the restaurant. The food was very good. I thought the lobster looked more like rather large Shrimp, but apart from falling short in terms of size it was actually very tasty. The soup was also great. Desert was a bit anodyne. I liked the place, although the Geometrie really made it very... More

The restaurant is located in the middle of nowhere but also one of the best lobser restaurants ever. The soup was absolutely fantastic and should most definitely be tasted.
