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.

This restaurant is worth taking a detour to visit. It has a fabulous scenery and good food. Everyone gets somthing they like. Also those that do not like lobster. Lobster is however the mail theme of the restaurant. The surrounding is nice to take walkes in nice weather a rough beach and nice breeze.

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.

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.
