A wonderful restaurant to enjoy the most delicious langostines; fresh, sweet, and cooked to perfection. Very nice two-story restaurant. Great service.

I ordered the Langoustine bisque for an appetizer and for the main course I ordered the langoustine tails that came with a salad. Fresh and delicious. Highly recommended. For desert I ordered the Skyr Bisquit. which was decent. Oh and of course it was expensive....More

This restaurant was a fantastic place to eat fresh langoustine. Situated a stones throw from the harbour and fishing boats. Good atmosphere friendly, helpful staff and yummy food.

Food was average- For any New Englanders traveling here- it's not lobster- it's not even similar to a spiny lobster. It's langoustine or a very large shrimp. Get the tails vs. the whole "lobster" entree. We left hungry.

It was almost our last night in Iceland so we decided to splash out. It's not cheap, but for the price you get excellent sea food, well cooked, and served by friendly professional staff.

Overall, one of our best meals in Iceland! This is a casual restaurant on one of the main streets in town. The star of the restaurant is the langoustines - sort of a cross between a lobster and a crayfish. I started with the langoustine...More

We had the lobster bisque which had great flavor and big pieces of lobster in it. Then we had the whole lobster and tails plate. I prefer the tails; they’re easier to eat. The lobsters are actually what we call langostinos or danish lobster tails...More

We two arrived there during the high season (July) without reservations and were immediately seated. We saw that larger groups were turned away. I think that it should be much easier in September.
