“Yummy!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

The best butter icelandic lobster!!! My friends and I passed by Hofn in late Octorber and did not expect that there would be any good resturant along the way. However Kaffi Hornid surprised us. All the dishes that we ordered were really yummy!!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Not a lot is open in Hofn in November but this place did not disappoint. Well they kind of did since they were out of the lobster soup but I found a delicious second choice and was very happy :-)

“Cozy restaurant, Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

On my first night in Hofn, we arrived late in the evening and were hungry for something more than a fastfood place. Kaffi Hornid was the only other restaurant open since this was the off season. We were all pleasently surprised by how tasty the food was. I ordered the lobster main course and was blown away by the taste and quantity of lobster! I would go back in a heartbeat. The prices were a bit on the expensive side, but the food was well worth the price.

“Excellent stop en route to Skaftafell”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

An excellent place to catch up with free Wifi and great simple food. The atmosphere was inviting with great views from the window seats. Also a good place to watch the premier league live!

“Good place, but slooow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

So being for one night in Höfn and looking for a place to dine we were suggested this place (not like you have a lot of choices in Höfn anyway). And seemingly this is where all other tourists in the area go, as it was almost packed. The place itself is cozy and inviting, and they have a varied menu including, of course, lobster plates. However the deal breaker here was the utter slowness of the service... At least one hour or so to get our orders, which seem to be a constant with other TA reviewers. Either they get more people that their cooks can handle, or that they just don't mind dragging their feet for service. If we were in a hurry (thankfully we weren't) this would not be a good choice. That said, the food was good, hot and properly presented. Pricing is middle of the road here - not too expensive compared to similar Reykjavik restaurants (read: really expensive), but not cheap either (read: less expensive).
