The restaurant was quite full which made me uncomfortable for covid reasons. I asked to switch to a table further away from people and near the door where there was a breeze and I was met with a very rude response from the waiter. The...table was completely empty and I’m not sure why we couldn’t have moved. No skin off his back. They should be more accommodative especially during the pandemic. Also none of the waiters were wearing masks.More

Possibly my best meal in Iceland. The soup was infused with the sweetness of langoustines, and there were very genrous with the meat. The sauteed langoustine tails were excellent as well. If there was a restaurant in Iceland worthy of a Michelin star, this would...be it. Do place a reservation, we were there in mid-winter and the place was packed.More

Outstanding -- one of our two best meals in Iceland --highly recommended, but definitely make reservations! The three course dinner works well -- soup was best we had on our trip, and the langostino tails were very tender and generous portions. I preferred the chocolate...cake. Other cakes were excellent. Service was outstanding, and reasonable wine list on the white side. Originally we had planned to have an evening dinner but came in late afternoon and after a short walk along the beach, we decided for a later afternoon dinner. Overall quite memorable and definitely worth the drive.More

Came here with two friends and we all ordered the three course option. Service was great and soup starter came almost immediately. We all ordered 300g of lobster tails and the servings were very generous. Good thing there is always room for dessert! And to...top the evening off, when we ordered coffee they placed a whole carafe on our table. No-nonsense place; great for those seeking a communal finger food experience (cutlery is also provided).More

We detoured here, South of Selfoss, on the way to Vik from Reykjavik. We were here at lunchtime and the place was almost empty. My husband ordered the langoustine, and I went with the soup. We each sampled the other's dish. The soup was good,...but I wish I had ordered the langoustine. We spent about 90 USD for the two dishes. They gave us a loaf of bread, which we used to sop up the garlic butter sauce for the langoustines, and every last drop of the soup. We enjoyed our meal so much that we returned a few days later. This time, we both ordered the three- course meal. The soup was actually much better this time. It was hotter, thinner, and more flavorful than the first time. The langoustines were a bit better the first time, having been smaller, more tender, and easier to remove from the shell. With a beer for my husband and a glass of wine for me, the check came to 180 USD, or about twice what we paid the first time. It was our most expensive meal of the trip, but it was an excellent meal that included an Icelandic specialty. We really enjoyed the experience and considered it to be money well-spent.More

My wife and I visited the Fjorubordid for the second time within 5 years. The second time in July 2021, was not the same excellent experience as last time. We were missing the bits of fresh fish, and fresh lobster tails and exquisite lobster bisque....Sad to see how mediocracy is ruining an exquisite meal.More

After nearly a week in Iceland, it was our first chance at langoustinos. We had a reservation for 6 pm, which may not have been needed for that hour, but by 6:30 the restaurant was jumping and by the time we left every table was...full. Yes, we had an amazing dinner. We ordered the three course and were mighty glad. The langoustino soup was as advertised: worth “risking our lives to drive there during a freezing winter night” although the temperature outside was close to 70 degrees f. The thick broth had a nice herb flavor with a half dozen langoustinos in the bowl. The pan of langoustinos had 300 g for each, along with some tender potatoes…but who needed them to fill up? It was plenty for 2 people. Despite the recommendation of the most popular Mars Chiffon Caramel dessert (which my wife loved), I had the chocolate cake. Both were terrific. The window view by the ocean made the meal complete. Wonderful! We will return!More

Langoustines there are legendary, so it was high on my places to return to and it didn't disappoint. For a full experience we had a soup and the tails as the main, a sea food lovers heaven :)

Fantastic Langoustines in a Garlic Butter Sauce. Very nice place for Families, very friendly service. They have also the favourite Kids menues. I would travel here just for the langoustines and the delicious soup.

Our dinner was fabulous. We had the three-course langoustine meal, the lamb dinner, and chocolate cake. All was cooked perfectly; the staff was excellent, and we would return again. We over-indulged and nearly needed to be rolled out. Fortunately, Google Maps helped us find it...behind the warehouse/museum and next to the coast.More
