“Excellent dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We had a great dinner the night we were in Hofn. The restaurant was quite charming, the service was very good and the food was outstanding. Of course, our dinner consisted of lobster and more lobster. It was very tasty and plentiful. Our waiter, Tomas was amazing! Highly recommend eating there!

“Highway robbery”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Sinfully overpriced lobster dinners. Osinn has the gall to charge nearly twice what other Iceland restaurants/cafes charge for comparable-quality lobster dishes. Lobster tails were small and overcooked. Avoid it unless you don't mind being ripped off.

“Not impressed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant. I ordered the grilled lobster, lobster soup and a lobster spring roll. The food was unremarkable. If this meal was served in America (at the price we paid), the restaurant would be out of business in a day. The lobster soup was thin, boiling hot, and with no lobster in it at all. I was only able to drink about one-third of the bowl before throwing in the towel. The lobster was unlike any that I have ever had before. There were about 5 lobster tails (about the size of my thumb) that appeared to be lightly grilled. Hardly enough meat to satisfy the needs of someone who had been hiking all day. The spring roll tasted as if it came from the frozen food section at the grocery store. Save your money and try somewhere else. I've never left a restaurant so hungary in my life.

“Excellent lobster menues”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

The restaurant of the hotel has nice lobster menues. Don't miss the lobster pizza!
The service was friendly but really slow. We had to ask to order after 15 min and the dirty dishes on empty tables were standing their for ages. Could be different on any other day of the year.
From my point of view the place overall lacks a bit of atmosphere.
