I tried several lobster soup during my two week trips. This is the best. By far. Excellent service. I recommend.

Very busy but had booked and we both had the 3-course lobster meal. Starter soup was very nice. Main course of the langoustine lobster tails O.K. but we both had problems getting the meat out - don't know if it was the quality of the lobster and/or how they were cooked. Didn't help that the day before we had a... More

Our landlady suggested we could not miss this fancy restaurant: rich people come from Reykjavik by helicopter just to have dinner away here! Well, the place is very nice, indeed, but the food is too expensive. Lobster and sea-food are the main recipes, and we can understand if their price is high. What we found less understandable was that even... More

This was amazing. I got a lobster soup, my family got a lobster and the food was simply delicious. Yes, it is a bit pricy, but it's definitely worth it. Staff is super friendly and there's also a nice view of the sea. The lobster is fresh and smells amazing. The whole restaurant has a fresh sea scent and it... More

We visited this restaurant based on recommendations of friends. It is in a tiny town about half an hour from Reykjavik. The menu is limited to lobster - in this case, langostinos - or lamb, and our party all opted for lobster. We got the 3-course special, which included delicious lobster soup, lobster with trimmings, and a homemade dessert. The... More

Incredibly delicious lobster soup, I recommend visiting the lobster restaurant if you have a chance - that's something not to be missed! In the nearest area you have also worth seeing elves and ghost museums and local art galleries so it's definitely not a place to be bored.

Went there with a large group, it was very nice and the lobster soup is good. I'd rather go to Rauða Húsið though...

Recommended to visit this place by a local. While a little out of the way, the location is actually perfect as it is beside the sea, and feels very authentic and rustic. It is obviously still a local hangout as well as catering for tourists. Meal options are limited - lobster or lobster soup, with small accompaniments and garnishes. However... More

Arrived at 5 pm today. Walked around back and up the stairs to take a look at the sea. Then went back around to the front entrance. No one was at the counter so we seated ourselves after waiting for about 5 minutes (no sign signifying that we should wait to be seated). Our party of two and another party... More

We read reviews on this restaurant before we went to Iceland. This place is wonderful. Food is fantastic and service is superb. It is well worth the drive out of Reykjavik. We made reservations in advance and got a window table for 4. We all got the Icelandic lobster (langostino) and we were not disappointed. They were excellent and cooked... More

At the seashore the giant lobster makes appointments with mermaids and Landlubbers. He waves his large claws, attracting the desire to be in the company of starfish and lumbfish. The village's corrugated iron houses, located just above its harbour, smack of ocean fragrance and seahorses. The village is named Stokkseyri and it sits just sixty thousand metres from Icelands capital, with a view of volcanoes, the ocean and endless hayfields. Under the stars, an even more important journey takes place - across salivating tongues, beautiful stomachs and joyful minds...
