That's how it felt! After not looking for a treasure for the entire day, we nonetheless found one :) We had spent a long day out trekking and exploring beautiful places (including Stokksnes, a few minutes away from Höfn), we found this restaurant by chance after nightfall. As soon as we entered, we knew we had made the right choice.... More

When planning our trip in Iceland this was one place we wanted to be sure to have a meal- and we were not disappointed. This is casual dining (place where you lick your fingers), where the food is more important then the service. So people expecting fine dining should not come here. Having said that we found the service very... More

Good meal, but very expensive and the service is really low. Even if we were the only guests in the restaurant we were almost forgotten by the waiters. Very slow, almost rude approach by them ruined the whole image of classy place. Lobsters were absolutely fresh and therefore super tasty. Yet, also very pricey. Do not count on the scenic... More

My friend and I ate at Humarhornin and had a truly wonderful meal. What a funny little place! The decor was very old fashioned and casual, which was not a problem. However the price was very steep so I guess there may have been a mismatch there. Either way, we had fantastic service, good music and incredible food. We shared... More

This was a must visit restaurant on our May 2013 Iceland trip itinerary due to the rave reviews. We all love fresh seafood and we've had some very fresh fishes in other parts of Iceland before we got here. There were 8 of us and we all ordered some sort of lobster dishes. For about 60 Euros, I think I... More

We make it short: best lobster ever! Tasty, fresh and juicy, served with very good salad, two sauces and good bread. We had the lobster tails (not the whole lobster). Simple but perfect dish. Although a little pricey - but compared to the quality and 350g of lobster worth the money. Highly recommended if your around Höfn. From a mid-twenty... More

A great find - the lobster (langoustine) bisque was fabulous. Well worth the price - £34 for lunch for two.

This was the best lobster dish I ever had in my life. It was so irresistible that we had 2 meals in 2 days stay. We had't waited table when we arrived around 6-7pm. About 6500-6800 for lobster tails or full lobster, must try the former one. Waiters were also friendly and professional. Best experience in iceland!

Good restaurant but not cheap. It's worth a visit. As so many restaurants and hotels in Iceland an smile in the face of the service will be desirable.

Yes we also waited... About 45 minutes on a Friday night, but it was totally worth it! We enjoyed the local brew while waiting, and then once seated we were treated to freshly baked bread, lobster bisque and the wonderful lobster tails... They look like shrimp but taste like lobster. They were accompanied by two sauces and a salad. An... More
