We arrived to the Island quite late and it was well after 9pm once we checked into our rooms. So, rather than waste too much time looking for a place to eat (and chance everything being closed), we walked by a few and went back...More

Slippurinn is our favorite restaurant in Iceland, actually, I should say - our favorite restaurant full stop! We just had the pleasure of dining with them in September. It was our second time there. We had also been there September of last year. In fact,...More

Such a nice atmosphere in an industrial building with second hand furniture overviewing the dockyard at Heimaey, the biggest island of Westman islands. They know how bring out the most of their fresh seafood. Great food and great service as to an affordable price.

This is a destination restaurant. Excellent, thoughtful, and sustainable cuisine, cooked by locals using local ingredients. Totally unpretentious and friendly. Inventive cocktails with all local botanicals. We were blown away. This is not the place to come for basic comfort food like fish & chips...More

What a great experience-warm, personable and friendly staff. Outstanding kitchen as well. The location has a great story to it and you can see the fingerprints of its industrial past clearly in the restored facility. The lobster soup was amazing! We ordered the large as...More

Huge brunch. Waiters were surprised we were ordering it as foreigners but we'd had enough fish and their eggs Benedict and pancakes and pork belly were great. Highly recommend it.

Loved this experience. They were absolutely accommodating for a gluten allergy and made both feasts gluten free! Each course was exciting, unique, and most importantly, really tasty. The service was great. We were thrilled to get a reservation only a couple of days in advance...More

Description
WE ARE OPEN FROM MAY-SEPTEMBER We are proud to mention that in October 2015, Slippurinn was ranked as Iceland's second best restaurant according to the White Guide / Best restaurants in the Nordics. Slippurinn is a family run eatery by the harbour in a 100 year old building that once housed a machine-workshop that served the old shipyard. It's casual, friendly and excellent quality. Our philosophy is simple and honest, we cook our food from scratch using the best ingredients in season. We get most of our vegetables from farmers on the south coast and we go next door to the fish market to get the freshest fish possible. We grow our own herbs and salads and forage the island for wild herbs and seaweeds. Our unique cocktails made from local herbs are a must try! The highly ambitious kitchen is run by chef Gísli Matthías Audunsson. Indiana his sister, is the general manager and bar manager and mom Katrín is the front of house.
