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.

We arrived, with an hour and quarter to go before Boarding on the Ferry (Incidentely the terminal is just round the corner). We ordered the food as soon as we could but the Restaurant was very busy (people eating before Boarding we assumed), it took a while for the food to come. Would have been great if we could have taken our time but the food understandibly took a while to cook, but the food was as good as all the reviews suggest if not better. Kids loved the food as well! You have to eat here!

The dishes were delicious and very well presented, the service was very attentive in this family run restaurant. The atmosphere in the restaurant is wonderful. It is cosy with the little setee corner, the owners pay a lot of attention to the little details (like decoration).
They offer an excellent variety of wines. Also the house wine is a very good selection.
We had a great evening there!

Freshest food, friendliest staff. Pretty restaurant. A reason enough to go to Vestmannaeyjar. They offer 4-5 dishes for a very good price, a few thousand ISK.

We have travelled in Iceland for 3 weeks and Slippurinn was one of the best restaurants where we have eaten. You can go there without hesitation. The food is from very good natural ingredients, the staff is very friendly, the atmosphere is very pleasant. We are still missing the good food even though we have eaten there three evenings in a row. Philippe

Wow! Just one word to describe this excellent location with their excellent food. Recommended in the Lonely Planet and by locals. They did not lie: Slippurinn is the best in town. Not only the main courses are great, also try their wonderful desserts!
