We were staying at the hotel and too tired to go elsewhere, so we decided to have dinner here. Mistake. The food was terrible. The arctic char was tasteless and the Vegan Oumph inedible. To top it off, the coffee was bitter.

Came hear with my son for a 2 course dinner. My son had edamame followed by beef tenderloin, while I went for the salad with nuts and cheese followed by Atlantic char. Overall the food did not disappoint. The portions were decent and the taste...actually quite good, just not great or with a twist. In my case the Mango /cucumber chutney was probably the most daring component. Don’t get Me wrong. Nothing wrong here, the service is fast and friendly.More

We bought the lobster food. Soup and boiled and fried lobster was served. The soup was without taste.The service was very poor, unqualified staff, unexperienced and rude. Not a good choice, if you can go somewhete else go,

We were staying at this hotel and was told the lobster is great, so we wanna try. However, it's disappointed.. it's not fresh & not tasty as all...and it's expensive. I don't know if the Chef missed something or what....but it's not worth to pay...high price with bad quality of food !!!More

We had here one of the best meals during our trip. The portions are a bit large but the quality of food is very good. Service was a bit slow, but they were very kind

Most of the restaurants in Hofn serve a lot of seafood, and Osinn is no different. Most dishes on the menu featured fresh, locally caught seafood and all of them looked quite good. The atmosphere here is nice, the space itself isn't too big and...the lighting is very intimate. If you are staying at the Hotel Hofn, you received a discount on your dinner here, which is always nice!More

Stayed overnight at hotel and decided to eat at the restaurant. (Discount provided to hotel guests). We had the lobster pizza (really good, unique taste for pizza) and the grilled lobster (good, not great.). Icelandic lobster tails are small, so the meal was good, but...not very filling. Chocolate lava cake for desert was amazing, best desert we had on our trip!More

On the more expensive side, but at least the pizza which we tried was worth it. Good service, cosy atmosphere. Rather small restaurant and quiet, good for a more romantic dinner than a party of friends.

We stopped for dinner after a long day of hiking. We decided to share the Lobster feast,YUM!! There was soup, buttered Lobster, Lobster Tempura and a Lobster Asian roll. All of it was great. Their Lobster is all fresh locally caught Lobster. I’ve never had...such tender melt in your mouth tasty Lobster! I would definitely return. We preferred The tempura, the soup had large chunks but I wasn’t fond of the soup. Overall a very good but expensive meal.More

I had the lobster soup and quinoa salad. My husband tried the lamb. Best lobster soup I've had in Iceland. The lamb was tender, lean and tasty. Excellent service too!!

We have our high tea at Osinn Restaurant after 5 hrs drive from the North. This is our fifth day (3 June 2019) of family free and easy tour of Iceland. Over night at Hofn for a rest. The lobster soup and spring roll are...delicious. The ice cream cake and Americano are nice. Our granddaughter enjoyed her Salmon Rice. Good food and nice restaurant.More

The Hofn hotel, Iceland we stayed at had this amazing restaurant. It is a fishing town and they had amazing fresh lobster. Highly recommend this place.
