Excellent food and location

Lovely meal and well spiced. We arrived late morning in the town that seemed to open noon or later. I so enjoyed birding from the town dock (eiders, mergansers, artic terns, and several birds I am not able to id), then a walk on the beach and tide pooling. Ouch was great.

We made the detour to visit this restaurant and were not disappointed. The setting is beautiful and the food was perfection.

My friend's guidebook recommended this restaurant as one of the best in Iceland, and we were not disappointed. Made reservations as soon as we arrived, and had an amazing dinner that was a treat for the palate as well as the eyes. We did run into a situation where a group of about 5 Americans were loudly talking and dominating... More

A popular restaurant that's a destination. All the food is great but the draw is the lobsters. Warning: the whole meal is huge so either order individually or share

I think this is a typical restaurant who got so much acclaim and praise in its golden days that it still rests on its laurels - but has unfortunately gotten lazy. We drove here after visiting the attractions in the golden circle, I had really been looking forward to the lobster/langoustine dish I had read so much about on tripadvisor.... More

Get the lobster/langoustines meal. It was excellent and the photos dont do it justice. One of the best lobster meals I've ever had. Make sure you get the lobster bisque as well. And the sides with potatoes, couscous, salads all very good. This place is easy to miss but seriously a must stop. Prices are very reasonable.

My husband and I visited this restaurant after seeing it in a guide book. It is only about 15 kilometres from Selfoss but the detour is well worth it. My husband had the lobster soup for starter and it came with a few large king prawns. I had a salad with couscous which was lovely. For the main course my... More

This place was recommended to us by the B&B located 50 kms away by serving the best lobster soup of Ireland. You cannot imagine how delicious this lobster soup was. Chose it as the menu instead of started, and you get two servings for only 25% more in price (and less than Eur 20 in total). Therewith you have a... More

I fondly remembered lobster in Iceland from a previous trip, and was on a quest to find a place to have them again. This was just the place! The little lobsters/ langoustines have a flavor unlike anything else I've ever had; the seasoning was delicious. I enjoyed the lobster soup as well, and second a previous reviewer's recommendation for the... More
