Description: WE ARE OPEN FROM MAY-SEPTEMBER We are proud to mention that in October 2015, Slippurinn was ranked as Iceland's second best restaurant according to the White Guide / Best restaurants in the Nordics. Slippurinn is a family run eatery by the harbour in a 100 year old building that once housed a machine-workshop that served the old shipyard. It's casual, friendly and excellent quality. Our philosophy is simple and honest, we cook our food from scratch using the best ingredients in season. We get most of our vegetables from farmers on the south coast and we go next door to the fish market to get the freshest fish possible. We grow our own herbs and salads and forage the island for wild herbs and seaweeds. Our unique cocktails made from local herbs are a must try! The highly ambitious kitchen is run by chef Gísli Matthías Audunsson. Indiana his sister, is the general manager and bar manager and mom Katrín is the front of house.

Modern bistro cuisine in an old factory, but with local and traditional food. This kitchen could make it in any major capital in the world. I had lobster for starter, and catch of the day for entree. Prices are surprisingly reasonable, an they have very nice meals for small children as well - and not the burger and fries kind, but real food, just smaller portions. A must at Vestmannaeyjar!!!!

Tasty local food served in a cool former machine workshop: well worth the visit, and reasonably priced as well.

One of the best and most interesting meals I have ever had. The young chef is adventurous and offers creative and innovative takes on traditional Icelandic dishes. Simple roots, wild herbs, the freshest fish possible - everything carefully prepared and presented so beautifully it seemed like a shame to eat it. They even have a cocktail made with Sorrel, which grows all over the island. This restaurant is a hauntingly beautiful dream.

The best bacalhau da Islândia that I have ever tasted is served at Slippurinn. This restaurant is the best that I have visit in Vestmann islands.
