Fjöruborðið Seafood Restaurant

A feast fit for Kings

There are several “must-do” things when it comes to tourist attractions in Iceland. High on the list among familiar names such as the Blue Lagoon, Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir, is Fjöruborðið,a cosy seaside lobster restaurant in the quiet south-coast town of Stokkseyri, just 45 minutes from Reykjavík.

Great acclaim

For over 15 years Fjöruborðið has been delighting customers from all over the world, often providing a mouth-watering finale to the official tours of rock stars, politicians, actors and even royalty. Fjöruborðið has served them all. The name means “at the seashore”, apt indeed for a place where golden sands and the wide blue ocean greet you at the back door. The restaurant’s humble interior and modest surroundings have a charm of their own, and can comfortably accommodate groups of all sizes.

Lobster paradise

According to tradition, only the tail of the lobster is served. You can order these delicacies by the kilo (250-400gr portions), sautéed in the shell, dripping with butter and garlic and accompanied by homemade bread straight out of the oven. By keeping the trimmings to a minimum, your taste buds are plunged into an unadulterated lobster paradise, a mouthwatering prospect at any time of year.

The lobster soup is to die for – many an Icelander has risked the mountain road in poor weather just to sip this elixir – and Icelandic lamb is also on the menu, along with sandwiches, cakes and vegetarian/kids’ alternatives. Order side dishes to suit your mood and be sure to bring your appetite!

Seaside charm

The town of Stokkseyri is definitely worth a visit in itself. A tranquil former fishing and trading centre where the people are friendly and the food is good, Stokkseyri is now also home to one of the scariest museums you‘ll ever come across – the Ghost Centre, awash with Icelandic folklore and ghostly interactive tales of yesteryear. There’s even a wildlife museum, where you can discover a large number of Icelandic mammals and birds, as well as wildlife from Africa and Greenland.
