Came across this place on trip advisor while looking for a bite to eat & wow... am I grateful! When we arrived there were a few locals enjoying a quiet meal & drink, but the place was mostly empty (it is out of season currently). Cosy, pleasing atmosphere with easy listening music playing at appropriate level. The staff are friendly, the service efficient & the food.... Plentiful & delicious! We ordered the burger (with lobster) & the lobster pasta. Glad we didn't order starter & unfortunately no room for desert (selection looks lovely!) as the main course was more than sufficient. The cost is extremely reasonable (only around 4,000ISK for the 2 meals, which is very reasonable in these parts!). Also, I am currently using their free, no password required, wifi to post this! Highly recommend a visit, wish we'd found this place 2 nights ago!!

We spent 10 days in a cottage outside Akranes and regularly ate at this little restaurant. We became particularly fond of one server, but missed saying good-by to him on our last. He did not think he was very photogenic so we wanted to take a foto with him! Food was excellent, atmosphere not noisy, and free Wi-Fi so I could stay connected and search out things to do in Ísland.

This restaurant is worth a side trip to akranes! We stopped in for lunch on the way from Glymur to the Snaf. Peninsula. Take a look at the pictures- order anything with lobster.

This is a real find in Akranes. A simple bistro style restaurant, it serves one of the best lobster soups I have eaten with chunks of just coked lobster floating on a gorgeous creamy soup. And they do equally yummy lobster pizza and lobster burger! Well worth a trip from Reykjavik.
