Description: At the seashore the giant langoustine makes appointments with mermaids and landlubbers. He waves his large claws, attracting the desire to be in the company of starfish and lumpfish. The village´s corrugated iron houses, located just above its harbour, smack of ocean fragrance and seahorses. The soup is magical. It is suitable for numerous occasions and happy moments on ordinary days, but Fjöruborðið takes no responsibility for consequences or stirring adventures that could result from ingesting it. It has a will of its own and, as such, it is risky for those who don't want to venture beyond the average. This is the most famous langoustine soup in the Republic of Iceland, prepared by handsome cooks who step naked out of the ocean at Stokkseyri with their catch.

We both had the lobster soup as a main course and loved it. The fact that they bring you an extra tureen of soup and lots of bread won us over. The location by the seashore has a nice view, and the building itself has a great atmosphere. Definitely worth the detour if you're driving around the golden circle.

We stopped for lunch at this reastaurant; did not need a reservation. The speciality is NOT lobster but langoustines, about one ounce each.
A few of them were mushy. They tasted good but do not compare to real lobsters,
If you're not really big eaters, for two persons, consider sharing the soup as a main course and 400 gr langoustines (about 15 pieces) with trimmings. If desired, desserts (which were not that wonderful) a la carte. This would save you almost $40 compared with two 300-gr menus, and dining is quite expensive in this country.
The young service team was very friendly.
Would stop here again - the south coast of Iceland is wonderful. - but would not make a special trip to this restaurant.

We had the three course meal, which included the lobster soup as a starter, lobster as a main and then you could choose from an assortment of cakes for dessert.
The starter was lovely, very nice lobster soup and I wished I had that as the main course.
The main was a disappointment for me, the lobster wasn't very exciting flavour wise and it hadn't been opened to clean it so the first thing you had to do was to take the dirt away before eating it.
My husband enjoyed the flavours more then I did though.
We chose the chocolate cake as a desert and the staff were friendly enough to let us have it as a take-away since we had our 3yr old with us which didn't share our interest in sitting and eating a lovely meal. I also thought it was a little bit on the expensive side, given I didn't enjoy the food more than I did.

Everything about this restaurant was good - not excellent, perhaps, but good. The thing is, that doesn't matter at all. Because the langoustines here - we had the ones simply cooked in butter, garlic and parsley - are probably the best you will ever taste. Anywhere. The rest - salads, potatoes, couscous - was fine, but to be honest, most of us barely touched anything except the langoustines and bread (for dipping in the sauce once the langoustines were finished). Definitely worth the drive out from Reykjavik (45 minutes or so). Would go back in a hear beat.

Had the lobster soup, which was delicious. We then had the 400 gr of tail lobsters sauted in garlic and butter for two, those were the best lobsters ever, perfectly cooked, it was just amazing. The trimmings though were not at the same levels, would not recommend them. Would come back to Iceland only for the lobsters!
