This place is a little off the beaten track, but the humarsùpa — lobster chowder — is so good it's worth making a detour to eat. Like everything else in Rip-off Iceland it is overpriced, but this restaurant still stands out for its quality. We had been advised to book in advance, and did so, but this wasn't in fact... More

The soup and lobsters -- and banana cream pie -- are all wonderful ... agree with other reviewers that it is best to get the meal deal and enjoy the sunset. It for sure a must visit in south eastern Iceland. Don't be daunted when driving into town from the main road - just keep going, you will hit it... More

The restaurant was recommended separately by different Icelandrs and they were fully vindicated. I would recommend the lobster soup which was delicious. The place is a way out of Reykjavik but is worth the trip. The location felt isolated and the beachfront by the restaurant felt like a movie set. No frills but great quality food.

Everyone goes here for the lobsters, which are really like large shrimp or langostinos. Those were good, but the lamb fillets were outstanding. We stayed in the town and this is the only place to eat, but I'd recommend it for those traveling to or from Reykjavik as well. Must have a reservation..

Can't fault the service or the location. I had the famous lobster soup and it was very good, although it's heavily dependent on the cream, of which there is a vast amount in it. The main course was lamb fillets and this was a bit of a disappointment. The lamb was overcooked and a little bit dry, although it was... More

they say lobster - they mean langoustine or scampi, which are better than lobster! the creamy soup is to die for and most customers come here just for that we also ordered the sauteed langoustine tails, and could barely finish our meal but it was too good to let it go :-)

I went with a couple of friends from the East Coast of the US and we all agree that their Icelandic lobster (langoustine) soup is definitely top-notched. We had the 3 course menu with soup, langoustine and dessert. It comes with "trimming" but I don't care too much about it. It's just some tomatoes, cucumbers, couscous. The dessert was just... More

Made a detour to Stokkseyri to have a langoustine dinner here. It did not disappoint. We both had the 3 course dinner. The lobster bisque was really rich and comforting, just what we needed after a day of driving. The main was a bucket of langoustine tails, which you had to eat with your hands. Everything was good, and I'm... More

This was our very first meal when arriving into Iceland. It was spectacular! I was a little nervous about it being overrun by tourists (it is mentioned in a lot of books and everywhere online). It is touristy, but in Iceland being touristy is pretty subtle (not annoying). The food was incredible and definitely worth getting. We ordered the soup... More
