Enjoy wonderful food in a historic building in the quaint seaside town of Eyrarbakki. A 45-minute scenic drive from Reykjavik, less than 15 minutes from Selfoss, and your gateway to the south coast. So stop by for a bowl of hearty soup on your way out or a feast fit for royalty on your way back to your accommodation after a day of sightseeing. The historical and relaxing atmosphere at Rauda Husid welcomes you to enjoy excellent food, such as delicious lobster/langoustine and fish direct from the fishermen, Icelandic lamb and other dishes along with good wine and personal service.
