About the restaurant

We invite you to enjoy our new menu that offers a selection of dishes and local cuisine at its best. Our Chef develops a seasonal menu for our guests to discover a rich pallet of flavors from the region. We mostly use produce from local producers, Icelandic Skyr and of course the world famous Arctic char. The Arctic char is raised in the water that comes directly from under Skaftáreldarhraun lava field and is widely considered the best char available. Locally produced lamb is another highlight on KLAUSTUR Restaurant’s menu and is renowned as one of the best in Iceland.

Best Service in Iceland

My husband and I were staying nearby and stopped in for dinner one night without a reservation- risky! The host was more than accommodating and offered us a perfect table for 2. The food was absolutely wonderful and the service (!) was spectacular… Impeccable without feeling stuffy. We were never rushed. The langoustine appetizer was divine, and the Arctic Char and Lamb entrees were perfect. This was definitely our best dining experience overall in Iceland.

Unexpected Treasure with great menu!

We arrived in Klauster on the south coast for a nite and found ourselves staying at the Hotel Icelandair due to lack of rooms in guest houses near by. We were SO pleased with the relaxing and inviting atmosphere, especially the bar (where happy is served daily) and dining room. Service was great, and the ambience was very bright, white, clean, and romantic. You cannot beat the fresh fish served, and I have to mention the homemade bread that was served as well! SOOO GOOD! As an IPA fan, we found ourselves trying different local beers, and Ulfur was one of our favorites! Hang out in the lounge after your meal, it is very large, open space, and very inviting!


We stayed at the hotel and didn’t want to drive anywhere for dinner as it was a horrible rainy evening. We made a reservation for the hotel restaurant and are so glad we did! There was a 3 course prix fixe menu along with a regular menu. We both ordered off the regular menu. My partner had the langoustine soup & arctic char while I had the cod with local seasonal vegetables. The food was absolutely delicious and the server was attentive and informative. The wine list was rather small but the selections proved to perfectly compliment the food. We also visited the adjoining bar for a drink after dinner. We didn’t expect much & were blown away!
