The food here is excellent and "inexpensive" compared to many restaurants in the area. However, plan to go on "off hours" as it is small and the family style seating fills up quickly.

Excellent lobster soup and limited selection of fantastic fish kebabs etc, very very simple but oozes authenticity, clearly a local favourite too. Highly recommended, not fine dining but very fine eating!

The menu here is pretty limited: you can order the World's Best Lobster Soup (which is most likely the reason you are there in the first place) or you can choose from a selection of Shishkabobs on a stick - veggie, salmon, and other seafood options. The portions were pretty generous for the price. The only negative thing was the... More

The Sea Baron was cute and quaint and a nice spot when walking around the harbor. The lobster soup and grilled fish skewers were tasty, though I didn't quite feel they were special/exceptional to warrant the price. All the food in Iceland is expensive though, so I guess it's relative.

Like many we watched Rick Steins visit on TV. The fish is unreal, so fresh and well cooked. We went twice as it was so close to our hotel, it's always popular and you can see why. Service is prompt and the decor and tables are quirky. A must for seafood lovers!

The lobster soup as recommended by many others were great and delicious Other than this, I think the seafood skewers were pretty normal. I will definitely go back for the soup!

Stopped in on a chilly day and enjoyed crowding onto a bench with other travellers for a quick cup of delicious and affordable lobster soup (only a few hunks of lobster in there, but yummy none-the-less!) with lots of bread and butter for dipping. We liked the fish shack vibe right in the harbor - felt authentic.

Heard about the lobster soup so had to try and as rest of party not so keen we went for the lobster soup as a starter. Excellent and much cheaper than same in restaurants.

We went there because the reviews are good. However, it is really expensive, around 15 euros for a fish/ prawn brochette or skewer. They have no vegetables really except for a veg skewer at 4 euros. Something else that really put us off is the fact that they're selling mink whale! It's revolting as it is an endangered species. Would... More
