Excellent food.

The Arctic Char and langoustines were excellent. Staff was efficient and attentive. We were seated before the 40 minute estimated wait time. Food here was definitely better than Pakhauss Restaurant across the street. Choose this one first.

An overpriced restaurant in the overpriced town of Hofn, but the food was still very good. I didn't have the langoustines, but there was plenty of choice on the menu. The char was delicious. Staff were friendly. The place was packed, even in mid-May.

Had dinner here in June 2015. Really good seafood & lamb dishes, accurate and fast service. A bit pricy, but defintely better price-quality ratio than similar places in Finland. Would visit again.

I wish we would have liked this restaurant but we were deeply dissapointed. Unfortunately the food is rather expensive and this restaurant being nr 1 in Höfn it doesn't live up to its standard.

Great restaurant in the quiet town of Hofn. We saw on trip advisor that this was highly rated and so we tried it, and it lived up to all our expectations. We ate the Langoustine tails- expensive yes, but definitely delicious. The service is amazing. Overall, a great restaurant experience. I'm sure Ben Stiller would agree (his photo is on... More

Landed in Hofn with orange decorations a plenty - it was a lobster festival in full swing. Restaurant was busy and we were initially told it would be an hour wait and they couldn't guarantee getting us in. But after a look around town and some rude service or should I say non service at Pukkas across the road we... More

It is right on the main road in Hofn. Delicious food, great service. A little tight between tables, but we hardly noticed because the food was so wonderful. They do not take reservations. We got there about 6:30 and it was already filling up. People were trying to beat us to the front door from the parking lot.

The langoustines were heavenly. The restaurant itself is not very cosy, but it made up for the nice reception and friendly servie.

Honestly, this was one of the best meals of my entire life and definitely my favorite meal in Iceland. I just had langoustine with butter and it blew me away. I'm not sure why it's in the middle of nowhere in Höfn but it's definitely worth it.
