We are sooooo glad we went to the Westman Islands and were able to get a reservation at Slippurinn! It's a family-run restaurant and it's worth a visit to the island just to eat there :)

Slippurinn is a friendly but sophisticated Icelandic restaurant near the harbour in the Westmann Islands. They serve traditional dishes and ingredients in inventive ways. Worth a splurge!

Having been in Iceland regularly I have tried my fair bit of lobster soups, but this one at Slippurinn is the best. The creamy soup is poured over a lobster-tail and the experience of umami, condensed lobster flavor and creaminess is of another world. We...More

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.
