Staff is friendly, small selection of seafood tried the minke whales and lobster soup. Both are really nice and filling. The minke whales is also something quite special and relatively affordable

We had seen this restaurant on YouTube and had to try it. Food is expensive in Iceland so I wanted to be certain that wherever we spent money to eat was good. You walk in, get in line and order whatever fish you want. It's...More

Tucked behind a large freight door with the decor of old shipping containers is the most unpretentious restaurant featuring the most delicious grilled fish items and a "to die for" lobster soup. When you step in the menu is shown to you...not on a piece...More

It is recommended by many that the Sea Baron is a casual, inexpensive restaurant. We came on weekday around 11:50ish. No crowds. Ordered the lobster soup and Halibut and scallops skewer. The price is really cheap compared to all other places we had been to....More

Hole in the wall restaurant but easy to find, not far from harbor. Relatively inexpensive based on the cost of food in Iceland. You pick what kind of fish skewer you want and they cook it for you. Lobster soup is good, not great. It's...More

Very casual place, order and pay at the counter and then find a place to sit inside or out and your food is brought to you. I really enjoyed the lobster soup. My husband was not as thrilled with it, but he also picked a...More

We ate the restaurant's famous lobster soup which was served with lashings of fresh bread. We then had fish kebabs. We did have to queue for a table but it was worth the wait. It is a small, quirky place but that adds to its...More

You can get delicious grilled seafood and lobster bisque soup and bread. You wait in line, order, and sit together inside or out to eat. It is very low key, but worth a try. We enjoyed it.

Description
Seafood restaurant by the old harbor in Reykjavik, Iceland. Founder was Kjartan Halldórsson who lived and served at the Seabaron until Elísabet, an employee who worked at the Seabaron with Kjartan with passion for a long time and helped him continue the business when it got busier every year, took over in his final days. They're unique grandfather/daughter friend relationship became a blooming business by the old harbor and more and more people wanted to come and try this old fishermans lobster soup that he swore to be the best in the world! Kjartan is remembered by anyone that was lucky enough to meet him and his spirit still lives at the Seabaron. The menu is the same as when he started it and we continue to serve fairly priced freshest Icelandic fish grilled on skewers and the worlds best lobster soup! P.S our beers are quite cheap and go very well with our delicious menu! Our soup and skewers are lactose and glucose free!
