The Sea Baron

The restaurant, Sægreifinn or the Sea Baron, the little fish shack by the small boat harbour in Reykjavik and especially its lobster soup received raving reviews in the New York Times travel section on Sunday, November 12th. This should not surprise anyone who has frequented this restaurant. The little fish shack has been very popular and is one the places that have been adding life to the Reykjavík harbour. There you can pick up fresh fish to take home to cook or buy ready made dishes and eat there.

The New York Times states that travellers will find the perfect lobster soup at the Sea Baron, the soup is simply delicious and the first thing anyone visiting Iceland should taste upon arrival.

The retired fisherman Kjartan Halldórsson is the owner of the fish shack by the harbour and is very happy that his soup got such a good recommendation by such a respectable publication. „I'm ecstatic and this is of course great honour," said Halldórsson the Sea Baron. „People who come here are always happy and I always get good reviews, I'm very thankful for that."

Sægreifinn is located on Geirsgata 8, 101 Reykjavík at the small boat harbour, nearby the whale watching ships. It's open daily and at 750 kronur for a lobster soup you can't go wrong.
