We made our reservation nearly a month in advance but were greeted as though we had no reservation, then placed at a table near a doorway where restaurant staff passing through bumped either me or my chair back. (I am not a large person, so the location of our table should not have been a problem.) We chose to have... More

This place was fantastic. We went for the full lobster meal and were not disappointed - the soup was the best we had ever had, and the langoustine were delicious (and there was plenty). Plus there is a great view!

Booked this based on the reviews. So glad we did. It was a great place. We had a wonderful meal. Enjoyed the basket of langoustines (their lobsters - very small and very delicious!!).

We enjoyed the "meal size" dish of this exquisite recipe. It includes one round of "seconds" per person. Pricey, but yummy. An excellent out-of-the-way diversion from highway 1.

What a great place with really good food and service. On a windswept shore the mini lobster tails are great and the potatoes go very well. Service was good and again, exceptional languistines

This restaurant has EARNED its reputation. Wonderful, fresh food... beautifully prepared and served by a very friendly staff. The "lobster" dish is spectacular (actually, langoustines).... the portions very generous. LOVED this meal... and the experience.

Stopped for lunch since this restaurant was recommended. For four people we split 2 three course meals. The small lobsters were good but there was barely enough food. Very small salad for two portions. The three course meal was approximately $75. Lobster soup was average with four very small lobsters the Susie of popcorn shrimp. It was ok but nothing... More

We were three people, and we toke the three course menu and had three different cakes for dessert which turned this "three three" adventure into a 5 start one :) The three course menu ( ÞRIGGJA RÉTTA MATSEÐILL ) For starter was a cream soup with lobster tails, just superb. After that the main course, lobster tails with garlic sauce... More

Highly recommend this restaurant, even if it's out of the way from your travel plans. I can't say enough about the food (lobster, bisque, bread, it was all amazing)...nothing else to say!

We came after seeing Rick Stein visit for our wedding anniversary and it didn't disappoint. Amazing langoustines, we went for the full 400gr , coated in garlic butter and served with delicious potatoes and a side of salad and cous cous. The lobster soup starter is to die for. It is expensive but hey, its a one off. Didn't buy... 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...
