What a service, what a food

One of the most disappointing thing in Iceland was the food (although we paid a lot) but My Hofn was Exceptionally good. the fish, the Lamb Chops were delicious and above all the service even if the restaurant were fully booked.

What a nice place! I had an open-faced sandwich and the beer Vatnajökull wich is actually brewed using water from the glacier with the same name and spiced with local wild timian kind of herbs. Truly delightful. The house is also beautiful and the staff so very friendly that you can simply not leave Hofn without visiting Cafe Nyhofn.

Very tasty and beautifully presented hot food, cakes and drinks. I loved the "kjotbollur" meatballs in a savoury sauce, followed by a rich chocolate cake with whipped cream. The bistro has a great view over the harbour and lovingly decorated interiors. A special place to be. The old mixed with the new in a cozy way. The staff were superb.... More

Good food, beautiful place, good service and a reasonable price. The smoked Macrel "smörrebröd" was very good with Icelandic beer Snorri.

Lovely Bistro located by the harbor in the oldest house in Höfn. The bistro offers delicious open face sandwiches and fresh homemade cakes, coffee and other small courses. Reasonable prices and very friendly staff. Definitely recommended - 5 stars!!!
