The food in here was absolutely lovely.

Lobster bisque to start - yum.
Both our main courses were divine too.

Highly recommended.

This is probably one of the best place to eat langoustine, at least in Iceland. The price are quite expensive but the quality is perfect : the langoustines come directly from the day fishing. The quantities are big and the staff is really efficient. The restaurant itself is nice, not particularly design but you've the feeling you're in a friendly place.

This was by far the best meal we had in Iceland and probably the best lobster (or langoustine) I have ever had. It was scrumptious, well cooked and a surprisingly large portion!

Don't go there if you seek variety or traditional Icelandic cuisine beyond lobster (to be fair they serve langoustes). However if you want to taste Icelandic version of lobster - it is a place for you. You can order full bodies, or only tails or mix, or soup, or baguette with lobsters - definitely you will find your dish. The desserts range was small (only 3 varieties, but all nice). In general - a nice place to eat when you wheel along the south shore just to get from Jokulsarlon to Eiglsstadir or back.
