Fjöruhúsið
 Restaurant in Hellnar
Home-made cooking, fresh bread and pastries in beautiful coastal surroundings. “Our seafood soup is the most popular item on the menu,” says the proud owner, Sigríður Einarsdóttir. She’s been running the restaurant since 1997 in a building which used to be a fishermen’s storage built in 1956. It is nestled in a small cove surrounded on three sides by volcanic rock intersected with caves eroded through the ages by the relentless pounding of the sea waves.

Fjöruhúsið on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is a real find for travellers.  Sigríður serves seafood soup made from freshly caught fish and shrimp accompanied by freshly baked bread and traditional Icelandic butter. Sigríður makes her own pastry, bakes cakes of various sorts and serves waffles with whipped cream and jam.
A scenic 2.5 km coastal hiking trail along a lava field starts at Fjöruhúsið and leads to Arnarstapi, another popular place to visit on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. This hike is always rewarding but especially on a quiet summer evening when the sun is low on the horizon and one can hear the birds going about their business.
“The environment surrounding Hellnar is its greatest charm,” says Sigríður.  “The ocean is full of fish which benefits the local sea birds. The lava field on the western side of the ice-capped volcano Snæfellsjökull is 1,800 years old and looks like a braded river — except it is solid volcanic rock with various shades of green moss growing on it.”

Fjöruhúsið is open every day May through September from 10.00 AM to 10 PM.
