We were taken by Icelandic friends, it's one of their regular haunts, even though about 40 minutes drive from Reykjavik. I always trust a local! What they do is very simple but done very well. Almost everything based on high quality langoustine tails. (Not lobsters with shells and claws etc. as we 'foreigners' know the word). It's worth pointing this...
Fjöruborðið (pronounced Fyor -uborth ith) (The name means “at the seashore”), is a cozy seaside lobster restaurant in the quiet south-coast town of Stokkseyri, just 45 minutes from Reykjavík. It is famous for serving the best lobster in Iceland. According to tradition, only the tail is served. My spouse and I don't really like lobster, but this was the tastiest lobster ever! No need for butter at all.
The lobster is too die for ! One hour outside of city towards the south in an old timber building . Not what Americans think of as lobster . No tools required . Soft break apart lobster tails about 6-8 inches long cooked in spices and butter served in a huge bowl based on how many grams you want . Not separate portions - sort of like a crab feast atmosphere - but omg - delish !
Worth a visit
This Is the best restaurant we have been to in a long time. Service was excellent and the 3 course meal was great. I had never in my life been full off of lobster.....I was this time. Soup was great as a starter, plus excellent bread. We each had 10 to 12 lobsters. Awesome cake after, just a great experience. Thank you.
We were taken here for dinner by our hosts at the end of our conference. I was nervous to begin with having not really eaten lobster before but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was amazing and plentiful and in its own was unique. Definitely recommend this place.
It's situated in a charming place, close to the beach and the dock, in a small town in Iceland. Lobsters are the main plates, and They're always super fresh! The recipe is absolutely brilliant. I try to go there at least once a month.
The lobster. Oh, good God, the lobster. Drive here and eat the lobster soup, followed by the lobster main.
