What is better than a delicious lunch on your journey to the South-Eastern part of Iceland or a seafood dinner on your way back to Reykjavik? The Rauda Husid restaurant is renowned for its delicious seafood dishes, not least the fresh lobster! You could even take a special day-trip from Reykjavík to Eyrarbakki. You wouldn’t be sorry!
Iceland is a paradise for seafood lovers and the Rauda Husid restaurant is the Mecca of delicious fresh seafood dishes. Lobster soup, with a hint of Cognac topped with coriander cream; Soufléed scallop served with basil sauce; Seafood trio with herb polenta and citrus sauce or you might even like to taste oven-roasted cod with slowly roasted tomatoes and hollandaise sauce. - Does that sound good? You can find all these and more on the menu.
The restaurant is located in a beautiful red house in the ‘lobster village’ of Eyrarbakki on the south coast of Iceland. Eyrarbakki used to be the most important trading centre in Iceland in the old days with the ships coming into harbour during spring. The restaurant is located in a house almost 100 years old in the centre of the village. It is a house with a history – you’ll notice the age from the old wooden floorboards and the interior style. It is a genuinely cosy place to sit down and imagine how life in Iceland used to be in the beginning of the 19th century.
In the middle of August there will be a special festival to honour life in the beginning of the 19th century. The whole village will look the same way as it did 100 years ago. Rauda husid will, of course, participate in these festivities and the staff will dress in clothes from this period.
