This establishment has earned its reputation with excellent service and very well prepared langostine, the Hofn specialty. But also sample some of the other offerings, such as baked feta and smoked lamb appetizers. The local beer was also perfect for the meal. Humarhofnin is pricey, but well worth saving for. Check to be sure it's open as it's a seasonal... More

After reading the reviews on trip advisor, we were excited to dine at humarhofnin. So we were very disappointed on arriving Feb 19 to find out it is closed for the season. Not sure when the folks in recent posts actually ate there. Just want to let you know if you are planning a trip here in near future.

After driving a short while through this town we wind up in this place. We had the best langoustines dish ever! Service is friendly in an icelandic way. Prices are above moderate, but that is everywhere in Iceland. A place to recommend, even from Ben Stiller who has been here as well. Enjoy!

Not cheap - but the lobster was the best I've ever eaten. The restaurant was busy and very touristy. Our B&B Guesthouse Dyngia was, handily, just across the road.

There is not that much around in Hofn, so Humarhofnin is the place to go if you are looking for fresh langoustine in a modern looking restaurant. Lamb and Arctic Char are also on the menu but it is the langoustine that are the star of the show. Freshly fished, the langoustine were very tasty and well worth it. Starters... More

Arrive early, there are no reservations and the restaurant is deservedly popular. This is not white tablecloth service, but atmosphere is very pleasant.

Located right next to the guesthouse where we were staying and recommended in our guide, we did hesitate to try this lobster restaurant in Hofn, capital of lobster in Iceland... And we really enjoyed it. Yes, it's a bit expensive, but it is lobster, fresh from the fishing boats 100m from there and the quantity is there. We both went... More

This was recommended to me by someone on Reddit. It has a good menu and the food is very good. However it is very expensive (£35 for a main dish), so go with the mindset that you are treating yourself!

We arrived without a reservation on a very busy night. Our guide pleaded with them to take us and they led us upstairs to a board room and brought us some bread to nibble on. A short time later we were seated in the upstairs dining room. The langostines and the langostine pizzas were fantastic! When we left the restaurant,... More
