We had a fantastic dinner at Pakkhúsið. The staff at the hotel told us that we would most likely not be able to make a reservation at the two restaurants close by because they are very busy and they were right. We went to one of those restaurants and the waiter there did not make us feel particularly welcome, even... More

The location is great, the restaurant is relaxed yet elegant, the menu made it difficult to decide what to order - so impressive - and the portions are way too big but you eat it all anyway because it is some of the best seafood you will ever taste.

Fresh food at reasonable prices. Well located just in the port of Höfn. Old traditional restaurant with local specialities. Very tasty and moderated prices. We took "catch of the day" which turned out to be ling fish with baked potatos and sauce. Simply delicious and salad as side. The fresh fried cod with tomato sauce was also very good. We... More

Excellent restaurant in a great location in front of the new visitor center. Excellent service despite a full room at 8pm. It's good to get a table close to a window to see the animation in the harbour. Excellent food with local "cuisine" . The chef even wrote a book about icelandic cuisine. For me, this is clearly the best... More

The food was great at this restaurant but the service was lacking just a tad. The people were very nice but I think they were a little too busy to keep up with the orders but to us it was worth the wait.

Fish soup was very nice. Then followed by the langustine delight (or duo - can't recall). Very nice as well - but no need to have the "langustine" spring roll - the langustine tails on their own are perfectly enough.

This place was quite expensive (as are most restaurants in Iceland) but the lobster pizza was a filling, delicious and cost effective choice. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Overall the experience was very good. I´ve tried quite few soups around the country and the one from this place was one of the best. Fish is fresh and the catch of the day that I had was simply lovely. Well cooked and tasty. But the real surprise was the dessert. Not many where to choose from but I gave... More

We both had langoustine (scampi or mini lobster) the freshest, juiciest and biggest proportion ever! I dream of coming back to Hofn for more of the same. Staff was very helpful and friendly. We did not book a table but managed to get the last available. Recommend that you book in advance to have the best food ever! n
