We got to Stokkseyri during our visit to Iceland in June while looking for a place for late lunch. When we stopped by Fjorubordid it was quite quiet with just two other parties. Knowing nothing about the reputation of the restaurant our party of three chose two main course lobster soups and one country side salad. Lobster soup was definitely... More

In Iceland, restaurants can be few and far between. When you do find one, the menus and ambiance are typically very simple. So it is Fjöruborðið, in its rustic seaside shack. So we went to Fjöruborðið for the famous langoustine soup in mid-afternoon as there is not much else in the town of Stokkseyri. The soup was OK to pretty... More

It's out of the way (you have to seek it out) and not inexpensive, but the langoustine soup really is worth it! Something about the way they prepare it, with just the right amount of cream and sherry (some places put too much) and a generous portion of the most tender, delectable langoustine meat and fresh homemade bread. It is... More

Order the lobster meal and you won't be disappointed. This meal includes the lobster soup which is out of this world, lobster with little potatoes and a plate with pickles, couscous, lettuce and tomatoes plus you get dessert. At the beginning of the meal they give you a sweet garlic sauce to put on bread which is very good too.... More

This would get 6 stars if I could! Take the 3-course lobster meal - The best lobster bisque, 300g of langoustines in butter and lemon, followed by incredibly good home-made desserts - moist chocolate cake, meringue drizzled with caramel and chocolate and carrot cake. There was also tiramisu but we didn't try that. Nice selection of Icelandic beers and wines.... More

No Michelin stars here but what you will find is a lot to eat! This restaurant, on our way back to Reykjavik, came highly recommend by our tour guide (okay, he gets to eat there for free if he brings guests!!). But he was right on. We literally pigged out on the langoustine dinner. Just as you can frequently order... More

We had a group of 8 people and we had a lovely table towards the front of the restaurant. My colleagues ordered the lobster dinner, which was served with 2 sides. The bowl of lobster arrived, looking beautiful with potatoes and butter mixed in. I ordered the lamb and both the lamb and sauce were superb. Salads and lobster bisque... More

I would fly back to Iceland to eat here again. Best meal ever. The dinner was superb and the dessert was dreamy. I miss this restaurant and plan to return. It's been three years and I still remember...how is that for a review!

Great lobster soup and lobster in very nice surroundings. A bit pricy but that is probably to be expected when purchasing good seafood.

We were starving when we saw this place on the map, and decided to give it a try. It looks a little rundown on the outside, but the food was delicious. get the lobster soup and the langoustines. You can't go wrong. Afterwards, take a walk out back along the beach.

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...
