We are proud to introduce Rauða Kaffihúsið! We have been hard at work to revamp the lower level bar at Rauða Húsið and turn the space into a bright and cozy coffee shop, which we are calling Rauða Kaffihúsið. During the summer, the coffee shop is open, serving up coffee drinks, home-made muffins and cakes […]

Experience the history. Capture the silence. Savor the cuisine.

Rauða Húsið restuarant is a fine dining restaurant on Iceland’s south coast

We are best known for our melt-in-your mouth langoustine (locally-caught lobster) and fresh seafood, but we also proudly serve Icelandic lamb and horse tenderloin, along with excellent vegetarian dishes. But of course we also have a selection of decadent desserts, cocktails and local beers and a hand-picked wine list.

Rauða Húsið is one of the largest restaurants in South Iceland, with seating for up to 230 in four halls on three floors. We can provide full sit-down meals from one to four courses, or coffee, drinks, and refreshments for your conference, wedding, party, or other event.

Just 10 minutes from Selfoss and Highway 1, 45 minutes from downtown Reykjavík, and 45 minutes from the Blue Lagoon. In the wintertime, it’s a perfect spot for sighting the northern lights! With a charming setting and talented chefs, you will find a unique fine dining experience here in a countryside setting.
