Went here after the restaurant next door was closed and we were really glad we did. The food was great, service excellent and the prices were not too bad. The place has a nice atmosphere. Maybe its better that you dont sit right next to the window as people tend to stop right in front to see what you are eating...

Went here after getting no service at Icelandic Fish and Chips. So glad we did! Excellent service, food and view. My husband had a mussel special which he said was terrific, and I had Braedibgur - cured and pickled fish, bread, salad and smoked lamb salad. Excellent and a real treat. I can get fish and chips at home in Maine but I can't get pickled herring or gravlax. Definitely go here if you're in Reykjavik.

I was very unhappy with the place. It took very long time to serve the food, it was not even hot when he got the soup. The lamb was very salted and the owner was very rude and unpolite.
Avoid this place. The only good thing is the waiters and the location.

Enjoyed a quick, walk-in dinner for 5 with two hungry kids. We were quickly and elegantly served, and the staff were very helpful with child portions. We found the food was very tasty though, in particular the fish dishes were creative and thoughtfully put together. The desserts were great too - recommend the Skyr sorbet was as beautiful as it was delicious!

Hofnin is on the harbourside in an unpretentious building and booking is probably essential since we saw a lot of people waiting for a long time outside for a table.

Service was quick and friendly but the food was a bit inconsistent. Our major problem was the over-use of salt: a portion of fries was inedible thanks to the salter's heavy hand.

Unless you really want to eat at the harbour you will find plenty of other, better places to eat in Reykjavic.
