This place is a seafood hidden gem! It's close to the water with nice view towards the mountains. It's not so big (2 separate rooms with table and chairs) so sometimes you have to wait if you go without a reservation (actually not sure if...More

For the ones who would want to experiment a unique loabster soop and some "fishes" brochettes, ... that's the place. The loaster soup and the halibut borchette were really amazing.

This place was recommended by a co-worker and far exceeded our expectations. They use very simple preparations that really allow the taste of the fish to shine through. You pick skewers of raw fish (potato and vegetable skewers are also available as sides) from a...More

One of the few places we found (located near the Old Harbor) that sold minke whale at a very reasonable price. It’s like a fish market. You order your fish and they grill it simply. No sides, no fuss. Good if you just want to...More

Creamy lobster soup and some of the freshest fish you’ll ever have, Teeny place with a quirky atmosphere. Nice staff.

I visited on a somewhat misty day so the hot soup was worth the meandering walk to the northern waterfront. This soup exceeded my expectations, and I will definitely hit it again this week.

We loved the seafood on skewers here. You pick what you want and pay for it and then they bring the cooked skewers out to your table ( or maybe you have to pick it up I cannot remember exactly). We tried a bunch of...More

This place is quite spectacular! Fresh fish kebabs grilled to order and lobster soup that’s very filling. No frills type of dining experience. Highly recommend for a casual dinner or a quick lunch.

Yes there is parking on some waste ground about 100 yards away - we used it as were staying in the icelandair hotel, I think if you head to the maritime museum you will see it next to the waterfront

This just means they don't take reservations for parties of fewer than four people. There were only two of us, and it was no problem.

Description
Seafood restaurant by the old harbor in Reykjavik, Iceland. Founder was Kjartan Halldórsson who lived and served at the Seabaron until Elísabet, an employee who worked at the Seabaron with Kjartan with passion for a long time and helped him continue the business when it got busier every year, took over in his final days. They're unique grandfather/daughter friend relationship became a blooming business by the old harbor and more and more people wanted to come and try this old fishermans lobster soup that he swore to be the best in the world! Kjartan is remembered by anyone that was lucky enough to meet him and his spirit still lives at the Seabaron. The menu is the same as when he started it and we continue to serve fairly priced freshest Icelandic fish grilled on skewers and the worlds best lobster soup! P.S our beers are quite cheap and go very well with our delicious menu! Our soup and skewers re lactose and glucose free!
