Was pleasantly surprised given all the negative reviews. The Arctic char was cooked perfect and had such amazing flavor. The skin was nice and crisply! Would definitely order this dish again!

This is a restaurant in a hotel in Höfn Iceland. I am a tour leader with 9people. I gave them time and chose the menu before anyone was there. The staff does not speak nor understand English well . First the waiter tells ne they...can do dairy free lobster soup. 15mins later he comes and says" no , we cant do it" Anyways, although I ordered our group menu and joked about " ı choose the menu for everyone otherwise they will bankrupt me" and he laughed 40mins later comes and says " will you take a main course?" and also they served to another crowded group which came 15mins after us and no excuse. They are not proffessional and dont careMore

My mom and I had been driving around for a while, and we were getting very hungry. We saw that the hotel that my mom had booked had a restaurant, so we decided to eat there. We saw the menu, and it looked pretty good,...but oh dear, it wasn't. We ordered the lobster feast, and all of the food tasted like it was frozen (probably because it was), and the only good thing was the water. I hope that people will reconsider their decision if they want to eat there.More

Do not go here! The menu looks nice - but it all comes directly from the freezerfrom the nearest suoermarket - and prized liked it was made fresh. Pizza: 3400n- 3900 Kr , equals 24 euro... frozen pizza - tastes like dove with tomatosauce. We...arrived late - was so happy arriving to a nice looking restaurant looking good and cozy - friendly staff. We did 3 courses and hoped that it would get better with the next dish.. but NO! Paid more than at the best restaurant we webt to at Geyser hotel - VERY VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!More

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

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!!
