The langoustine soup really is magical! We had a terrific lunch here of langoustine soup which they say is magical and it might be! Also had a very good slice of chocolate cake. Friendly service too.

On the drive back from Vik to the airport, we stopped to try the soup and langoustines. Considering we licked our plates clean, it was absolutely worth the stop. The soup really is magical - and it hit the spot on a cold, Iceland day....More

Our tour brought us here, in a quasi-tepee to gorge on Langoustines. They were marvelous, in a garlicky sauce, with bread to dip in it and salads. Great fun, fresh delicious shellfish and lovely view of the coast behind the restaurant.

This place is famous for this amazing dish that was just fantastic wine garlic and some spices, a true delight it’s a good ride out from Reykjavík but great for the Aurora spotting on the way home. I would go back just for that dish...More

This restaurant was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. We went for dinner so unfortunately did get to see the views from the restaurant. However the food was incredible and well worth the visit. We had the langoustine and they were really delicious....More

You must eat here. This is non-negotiable. The langoustine soup was unreal - get 1 soup and share with whoever you are here with, because its huge and comes with a refill container. Definitely get at least the 250mg of the langoustine pot, you could...More

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.
