As mentioned in my previous reviews, dining in Iceland can get pretty expensive. This restaurant is not an exception. In order to have a full meal per person, the prices were way out of our reach. However, we managed to find a reasonable solution to this issue. We split the Three Course Lobster menu and oh boy, was it worth... More

The food was good but the service was really bad. The service staff seemed to be quite young and more interested in chatting with each other than doing their job. Once we got seated we waited first 20 minutes even to place the order (I had to go to the counter and ask for it). We offer three course lobster... More

This restaurant is known for it's lobster and deservedly so. This was one of the best meals we had in Iceland. Simply presented a dish full of lobster tails (langoustines) in garlic and butter - delicious!!

We've enjoyed meals in countries across the world, and this ranks right near the top. It may seem expensive depending what standard you apply, but for $135 USD for 2, we enjoyed a fabulous meal and experience. Everything was incredibly flavorful, and the soup really IS magic! The bread in abundance with two remarkable dips, and excellent wine, the side... More

Abundance of crayfish, cooked in the most amazing manner in this "shack-like" restaurant just on the beach front in the "middle of nowhere". What an experience, and certainly worth the drive from Reykjavik just to eat! Equally home run With the kids (3 boys 13 and 14 years old) as with their fathers.

We had lunch there with friends and chose the lobster soup as a main meal. The price is OK for Iceland standards, and the soup was really creamy, tasty and excellent. It's served with bread. They bring a plate to each one and extra pots to add, we couldn't eat it all. Service was OK but nothing special. The restaurant... More

I took my family to Fjorubordid to start off our holiday in Iceland. The lobster menu was fantastic, lobster soup was great and the actual lobsters... Well, any words cannot tell, how well they were prepared. Just loved it. After eating that all ( plus the freshly baked bread) we really had difficulties with the dessert. It was just too... More

We were on a tour and staying in Selfoss. Read about this restaurant on Trip Advisor and also in a guide book. Determined to go there. Our tour leader helped with the arrangements since we needed a taxi and reservations. Convinced 5 others to join us despite the taxi price. What a great experience. Staff was excellent, English menu and... More
