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 visited this small township purely for this restaurant and we weren't disappointed! We ordered the three course lobster menu plus an extra soup starter between two and there was plenty of food. The whole meal was delicious and well worth the 12,000 krona.

“Arguably our best meal in Iceland”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

As mentioned in my previous reviews, dining in Iceland can get pretty expensive. This restaurant is not an exception. In order to have a full meal per person, the prices were way out of our reach. However, we managed to find a reasonable solution to this issue. We split the Three Course Lobster menu and oh boy, was it worth it. Delicious lobster soup, delicious lobster with potatoes and veggies and delicious choice of dessert. Everything was delicious. And it is the only word that comes to mind.
I have to absolutely disagree with the previous reviewer regarding the speed of the service. We were in rush to bring the car back to Reykjavik at the end of our trip and we were out of the restaurant within an hour. That's considering we really took our time to enjoy the meal. On top of that I had a glass of local beer Skjalfti, which can also be tasted in Micro Bar (Reykjavik).
Overall, I have to say that this was one of my most pleasant culinary experiences in Iceland.
The only issue would be - location. Unless you're visiting the town of Selfoss, there is no real excuse to pass by Stokkseyri. However, I truly believe that this restaurant alone is good enough of an excuse.

“Really slooow service”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

The food was good but the service was really bad. The service staff seemed to be quite young and more interested in chatting with each other than doing their job. Once we got seated we waited first 20 minutes even to place the order (I had to go to the counter and ask for it). We offer three course lobster menu. Waited another 30 minutes to get the starter which was a lobster soup. Main course and dessert came quite ok. But again we had to wait for 30 minutes to get the bill. And we were only ones left!

“Delicious lobster”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

This restaurant is known for it's lobster and deservedly so. This was one of the best meals we had in Iceland. Simply presented a dish full of lobster tails (langoustines) in garlic and butter - delicious!!
