Fjöruboðið Restaurant is such a great place. The food there is just outstanding, went there yesterday with my wife and had a lobster with a glass of cold white vine, what a treat. Perfect service, perfect food and great location. 10 of 10.

We came to this restaurant as it was highly recommended by the owner of the house we rented. We were staying in the town of Stokkseyri, and decided we wanted a special meal for our anniversary. We splurged on the three course dinner of lobster soup, lobster, and dessert. The star of the show was really the langoustines. Much smaller... More

As part of our Northern Lights tour with Iceland Rovers we stopped off here for a lobster supper. How surprised were we to find this was the same place included in Rick Stein's Weekend Breaks tv series on BBC when he visited Iceland! This restaurant did not let us down and the Langustine Soup (a jealously guarded recipe) was superb,... More

Thanks must go to Rick Stein's visit to this establishment on his BBC programme for the recommendation! Not easily visible from the road so I would recommend a quick look on Google Earth / Street View before you come. It is a short distance from the west side road entrance into Stokkseyri on the right hand side. We booked in... More

Third time to this little gem. Wonderfully relaxed and absolutely delicious lobster tails. Served to the table in a brass cooking pot. The sides are equally delicious. I would actually go to Iceland just to eat here! Ive been for both lunch and dinner and the little each is lovely for a walk afterwards. Great service, friendly and exact

This small bistro on the Southern coast was worth the detour on our way to Glacier Lagoon. We all had the lobster soup as a main meal, 3200 kroner each. We had plenty for 4 big eaters for lunch. It's the same menu for dinner. Set your expectations about the "lobster" as it's really a largish langoustine. If you're a... More

Not my first visit but this time we came as a group, we were a group of 8 persons and we had a group deal. The langustine lobster was just absoloutly amasingly good but there were some bires that were not ok. The staff was really nice and helpful and again the food was amazing. Highly recommend!

Had this place on our radar from a blog entry that I read which raved about the soup. We were there at an odd time (2pm) as we were driving back to the city from vik. It was quite the detour down unpaved roads but well worth the journey!!! We indulged in the 3 course meal and didn't regret it... More

We set out for this restaurant after a hard days drive on the south coast of Iceland, having seen Rick Stein rave about the lobster soup on his program about Iceland. As you would expect, Rick was spot on and the soup was fantastic. We arrived at the restaurant at around 6pm, to find the restaurant very quiet, with only... More

At the seashore the giant lobster makes appointments with mermaids and Landlubbers. He waves his large claws, attracting the desire to be in the company of starfish and lumbfish. The village's corrugated iron houses, located just above its harbour, smack of ocean fragrance and seahorses. The village is named Stokkseyri and it sits just sixty thousand metres from Icelands capital, with a view of volcanoes, the ocean and endless hayfields. Under the stars, an even more important journey takes place - across salivating tongues, beautiful stomachs and joyful minds...
