Visited this restaurant after seeing a YouTube video highlighting how good the lobster soup was and, as a seafood lover, I wasn’t disappointed. The lobster in the soup just melted in mouth. I was in Reykjavik for 3 nights and I ate here on 2...More

Must try their skewers and lobster soup (served with bread). Price is reasonably cheap (in Iceland). Definitely worth the long queue line

This very small, non-descript restaurant is definitely worrh making an effort to find. The front only has two long tables and you sit first come, first served. there are more tables in the back. The fish skewers are good but not exceptional. you come here...More

Tasty, warming and delicious lobster soup with bread - very nice staff. The interior is like a fisherman's hut, rustic bench tables and stools. The fish kebabs are great too - free coffee available.

My husband & I saw this restaurant on the Travel Channel & knew we had to find it. We were not disappointed. While inside is a bit small, the food portions are not. We got the lobster soup, one of the freshly caught fish grilled...More

Many have raved about the lobster soup. It didn't meet my expectations. it was OK, but not worth making a special trip to try it. Most of the patrons of this restaurants were tourists and I had much better lobster/seafood soups in the same area...More

Doesn't look like much from the outside, and quite rustic inside, but it is all part of its charm. Perched on little blue fish barrels you will taste a wonderful lobster soup, served with bread but can also recommend the some grilled shrimp. Beautiful little...More

We had the lobster soup, and skewers of cod fish and shrimp. Everything was really fresh and delicious. The lobster is tender and melts in your mouth.

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 are lactose and glucose free!
