Charming restaurant decor and the food lived up to recommendations. We had lobster (langoustine) soup, and the shared a plate of grilled lobster with chilli and garlic. All delicious, and the house baked sourdough bread was moreish too. Good service.

Very tasty lobster soup, with Cognac. Never had such good soup before, worth to give a try. Fish is good as well. Chocolate mouse is also highlight.

We had langoustines which were exquisite. The focaccia langoustine is very good but the tails are a little bit less tasty than the main langoustines course. Not a big choice of desert bit it is usual for Islandic restaurants. A bit pricy. All other restaurants...More

The staff was really friendly in this nice, charming restaurant. The food was excellent! You don't have a lot of options in Höfn, so I definitely recommend it.
