“Nice place for light meal...”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We ate at the Sea Baron restaurant and each enjoyed a bowl of Lobster Soup. I would call it more of a bisque. The soup came with a large loaf of bread. You order when you come in the door, pay, and they bring you the food. There are a couple places to eat and we chose to go upstairs. It was very quiet and casual. They somehow forgot our soup so after a long wait we checked on it. As a result they wrote off one of the beers. That gesture shows they value their customers.

“So fresh and delicious seafood!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

It's really authentic dirty port tavern! It situated in sea port on a seaside. Fresh fish, shrimps, prawns, scallops, halibut and whatnot! Seal on a wall it so cute and cozy... instead of chairs are ship drums. For those who love fish and seafood.

“Very good fish!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

The little cosy place, looks like a hole in the wall, but who needs fancy place when you can have great fish kebabs! You just choose what you want and voila, it is ready in few minutes!
We had a great meal!

“Lobster Soup is a Must!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

If you go to Reykjavik you have to have the lobster soup here at least once. Total hole in the wall place down on the harbour, with communal tables (you sit on old beer kegs with cushions). For $12 get the lobster soup and a Gull beer and you've got the best of Iceland in front of you. They provide lots of fresh sourdough bread to mop up your soup so it makes for a reasonably filling and very cheap meal. Soup was full of big lobster chunks and had great flavour. They put a lot of care into making their broth. You can also get fresh fish skewers, but they were expensive (around $18-$20 each) and although they looked good, we heard people saying they weren't great. So go for the soup, and then stop at the hot dog stand down the road like we did if you're still a bit hungry afterwards.

“BEST LOBSTER SOUP EVER!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

The history behind this restaurant is quite unique. It used to be quarters for fishermen that was converted into a restaurant in the late 90s. If you go you might see the owner roaming about - he used to be the chef of the fishermen quarter. If you go upstairs, you can see how the fishermen slept. Definitely try the lobster soup, especially soak the bread in it. The bread is all freshly made and you can see it being made in the oven. Everything else though wasn't really memorable so I wouldn't recommend getting the assorted meat and fish skewers - focus on the lobster soup!
