Spontaneous stop after a walk to see the volcano in Geldingadalir with the family. Burger, veggie burger and fish was amazing. Don't miss out on this hidden gem. We will definitely be back.

The most amazing restaurant in this area. Hands down the best burger we’ve had for a long time. Child friendly and warm welcomes.

We have been at Hendur í höfn a couple of times last month, both as a couple and with our family - always great service, excellent food and of course nice ambiance. Well worth the visit... and ask the waiters for recommendations for food and...activities in the neighbourhood. Thank you so much...More

Went to get some refreshments and ended up getting the Lobster Soup! If you haven't tried it you need to as soon as possible. Rich taste and fulfilment is what you get!

Droped by after a tough day in the garden. Lobster soup and carrot cake :) Lobster soup was perfect with fresh bread. Served with pesto and butter. For deesert we had carrot cake. Good portion and super taste :) Perfect service. Yes the place is...decorated in a quaint style but still spartan.More

Great interior, excellent service and super good food and desserts. Quiet place in a small village - never would have guessed that this was a treasure during our trip. Great also for gluten-free cakes and food. Whole family loved this place!

Stopped for lunch while touring the area in early February. The service was as warm and welcoming as the atmosphere. Food was delicious! Unfortunately, too much to partake in dessert as well which looked exquisite! So glad we found ourselves passing through as lunch time!

It doesn't really matter if you order the fish of the day or the turkey club sandwich or the luxurious burger on menu. It's all superb food obviously made from top raw material. Cannot over reccomend 'Hendur í Höfn'
