“The Lobster restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Don't go there if you seek variety or traditional Icelandic cuisine beyond lobster (to be fair they serve langoustes). However if you want to taste Icelandic version of lobster - it is a place for you. You can order full bodies, or only tails or mix, or soup, or baguette with lobsters - definitely you will find your dish. The desserts range was small (only 3 varieties, but all nice). In general - a nice place to eat when you wheel along the south shore just to get from Jokulsarlon to Eiglsstadir or back.

“Food is good, decor is not that nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Friendly service, good food. Décor is less nicer that at Pakkhus Restaurant, where service and food is at the same level. I prefer Pakkhus to Hummarhofnin, just because of the décor and ambient... Deserts are better at Pakkhus, so now, you can choose:)

“Very frustrating”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Told it would be an hour to get a table. Came back 30 min later and with a shrug, told we had been called and sent to bottom of the list. Infuriating.

“Lobster !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Great place in this former coop HQ. We where 5 and all had the lobster soup and then the lobster. I recommend nr. 11 as it is only the tails as they are small to go for nr 12 is only for the look
