The town of Hofn is apparently well-known for its fresh langoustines, so while we were there, we decided to splurge a bit and see what all the fuss was about at this restaurant.
We had the langoustine bisque (roughly 2000 ISK) and a few plates of the mixed whole langoustines and langoustine tails (about 5900 ISK each). As you can tell, its a pricey meal!
The bisque was average, with small chunks of langoustines inside. The mixed langoustine dish was rather yummy, and they were cooked in a garlic butter sauce. It also came with a generous helping of salad, pink langoustine sauce, and salad dressing. While the sauce was really tasty, we felt that the langoustines themselves were either overcooked or unfresh, and so that was abit of a letdown. If we had to come back, we would take the dish that was purely langoustine tails, as they were much easier to eat. They do give a lot of bread which helps to make the meal more filling!
