Experience the history. Capture the silence. Savor the food.

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

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.

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 beef tenderloin, along with excellent vegetarian and vegan dishes. But of course we also have a selection of decadent desserts, cocktails and local beers and a hand-picked wine list.

Rauða Húsið has four separate dining rooms on 3 floors. Our main dining room is perfect for a cozy romantic dinner or evening out with the family. Our banquet halls upstairs seat up to 160 guests and are serviced by a full bar. In the basement is a cozy room with a full bar, perfect for parties or meetings.

We have been honored to receive a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence four years in a row.
