Take a step back in time and enjoy classic, time-tested dishes with a modern elegance.
Located in a lovingly restored historic building in Eyrarbakki, a quaint coastal town in the Icelandic countryside, The Red House (Rauða Húsið) restaurant is one of the best kept secrets in Iceland. Well known among Icelanders, Rauða Húsið restaurant is most famous for its seafood, especially langoustine.
Spread out over 3 floors, with the main dining room on the mid floor, the building is larger than it at first appears.
The cozy main dining room has space for 42 guests, with white tablecloths, red napkins, and soft music played through old-time radios. The upper and lower floors are reserved for private events, although the bar in the lower level is open the first Saturday of every month and is popular among locals.
Eyrarbakki was the birthplace of the Icelandic lobster fishing industry in 1954. The menu pays homage to this and prominently features langoustine in several dishes.
Of course, for those who fancy something else, the fish comes direct from the fisherman, and we serve only the finest cuts of choice meat. We also have some excellent vegetarian and vegan options, as well as delectable desserts.
