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.

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.
