A couple steps inside and we were totally taken by the aromas, smiles, sea view, and cakes on the bar. We were lucky to be here in October (13th) and had plenty of attention and elbow room. Small Icelandic lobster is the specialty here and it's the best we've ever had. Our server was the perfect blend of friendly/professional and... More

We came here from Selfoss for dinner (15min drive) and weren't disappointed. We ordered lobster for two and received avlarge dish of lobster tails cooked in garlic butter/herbs. This came with some sides. We enjoyed the dinner and great to eat some fresh icelandic seafood. The restaurant was busy, fairly informal and relaxed. Three cakes on offer for desert.

This place is slightly out of the way. I love places that are not in the main downtown area. This place has a really nice layout. Service is excellent. I recommend reservations. We did not have a reservation yet were welcomed in (the place was really busy) and seated quickly. We had a distant view of the sea, a cute... More

We found this restaurant by accident in the dark and during a high wind storm, and an hour away from Reykjavik. The town was pretty quiet and everything was closed at 730pm when we arrived. We knew eating out was expensive in Iceland so we planned to have just one dinner out during our 3 day stay, and we wanted... More

We had a early dinner here there was just us and one other couple in the restaurant probably because we were eating around 4:30. We both had the 3 course meal which included the lobster soup and 300 grams of the small lobster tails with the fixings. The food was excellent and very tasty.The desert was also included but we...

It's worth the drive. You can make a day trip out of it as we did and then it doesn't seem so long to get there. If you go straight there from Reykjavík it's about an hour to drive there. We arrived before our reservation and got right in. The menu has basically two choices lamb or lobster. We all... 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...
