Is about a 45-60 minute drive south of Reykavik. We ordered "VILLAGE LOBSTER" a lobster tail in a bucket which are fried in garlic butter and Icelandic potatoes and vegetables, it was good but over cooked.

We were the only travellers there, the staff were serious and not much fun. Clean area, food very nice after a long day! No atmosphere tho.

Fjorubordid is about a 45-60 minute drive south of Reykavik. We went there on a glowing recommendation from our car rental guy, and yes, it was worth the trip! The menu is simple, with the main dish being lobster tails cooked in spices. We ordered the lobster soup and about 800 grams of lobster tails for three people. Not a... More

We ate dinner her after going through the golden circle. Since we were traveling already for about 300km we stopped her before returning back to the hotel in Reykjavik. Try the soup and lobster that all you will need. Soup was so good we order another portion instead of dessert.

The lobster is too die for ! One hour outside of city towards the south in an old timber building . Not what Americans think of as lobster . No tools required . Soft break apart lobster tails about 6-8 inches long cooked in spices and butter served in a huge bowl based on how many grams you want .... More

Fjöruborðið (pronounced Fyor -uborth ith) (The name means “at the seashore”), is a cozy seaside lobster restaurant in the quiet south-coast town of Stokkseyri, just 45 minutes from Reykjavík. It is famous for serving the best lobster in Iceland. According to tradition, only the tail is served. My spouse and I don't really like lobster, but this was the tastiest... More

We heard about this restaurant while researching our visit to Iceland. It lived up to the reviews. Had langoustines with trimmings ...a totally memorable meal. Fun location is small fishing town, right on the water.

We were taken by Icelandic friends, it's one of their regular haunts, even though about 40 minutes drive from Reykjavik. I always trust a local! What they do is very simple but done very well. Almost everything based on high quality langoustine tails. (Not lobsters with shells and claws etc. as we 'foreigners' know the word). It's worth pointing this... More

A group of 5 of us came in for lunch for the sole purpose to try this soup, and we weren't disappointed. We all ordered the meal size portion and was delivered a decent serving. Then the waiter came back later and gave us another giant pot filled with soup for everyone to split. Good amount of lobster with a... More
