I'd heard about the lobster festival in Höfn from friends on many occasions, but I thought, "How great can their lobster really be?" I mean, this isn't Maine. Wow. This was one of the most delicious meals I've ever had, let alone in Iceland. Got...More

The menu boasts the seafood was caught by the boats you see from the windows and the potatoes are grown from a man down the street. It's a theme you see repeated throughout Iceland and that's a great theme. This place was outstanding. Service, mood,...More

Lamb and shrimp tail seems like the most famous one. But the proportion of the lamb is very big, can be shared with two persons. It's quite pricy btw It is okay if you are not in a hurry, because normally it needs around 30-40...More

Excellent service, very good langoustine We did not think the langoustine tails were as good. The lobster bisque did not have as pronounced a lobster flavor as I would prefer.

We stayed at the guesthouse across the street and ended up eating at Humarhofnin one night and the Pakhouse the other, this was easily the better of the two. Our friend who absolutely loves lobster said it was the best she had ever had. The...More

We two arrived there during the high season (July) without reservations and were immediately seated. We saw that larger groups were turned away. I think that it should be much easier in September.
