We visited the sea baron on recommendation from a friend.
It is an odd little building if you don't know what to expect, but with some great seafood. There is a fridge counter with lots of fresh fish kebabs on display which are all cooked fresh. We had a salmon kebab, a blue ling kebab and lobster soup. All really tasty, freshly cooked and quick service! For a quick informal reasonably priced meal I would definitely recommend it!

We really liked this place last time we visited Iceland and food here was much better. This time lobster (which is not really a lobster) was too soft and amount of veggies in the soup was too big. Please bring back old quality...

This is the best lobster soup i've ever had this past summer, very unique, had some shrimps too which was great served with unlimited bread . I will savour this memory forever.

Several different people recommended this restaurant to us during our stay in Reykjavík. Our local tour guide, the front desk staff at our hotel, and a personal friend all sent us to the same restaurant. I must say we were quite satisfied with the meal and the atmosphere. It was extremely casual, even to the point where it appears to be a fish store as opposed to a restaurant on one half. The cat fish, whale and lobster soup were all delicious. Prices were reasonable.

This place is busy for a reason. The lobster soup and salmon skewers are great and the prices are good compared to other restaurants in Reykjavik. We came here twice during our short trip to Iceland. If the front room is full, ask about the other dining areas. The Saegreifinn may not have the most elegant and quiet ambiance, but that's OK - the food sure makes up for it.
