Great, fresh seafood with a great view of the harbor! A nice, quaint setting to end a day full of busy sight seeing.

Immediately got the impression that they are only thinking of getting as manny gests in as they can-The Shellfish soup ( a la Höfnin ) was cold and i got the Grilled spotted wolffish (to expensive and just a sample ).My wifes grilled ribeye was cold but tasted god.
Understaffed and not the best waiters , but to make justice the environment is cool and the Deserts was awesome

Thi was pur first dinner in Reykjavik. I went there after a research about Slow Food Iceland and I can highly recommend Hofnin as the place to try what Icelandic cusine has to offer. The seafood was amazing as the mussels were. the service is perfect as often in Reykjavik and the atmosphere was cozy and not noisy despite the place being full. The location on the harbour is also really nice making Hofnin so easy to find that no one should miss it.

If you are looking for good seafood that is cooked to perfection then look no further. Hofnin is definitely one of the best restaurants in Reykjavik. The service was good, although the young waiter seemed to have something on his mind on the night we were there. Expensive but not bank breaking!

the food was good, everythign was right, but what I liked most about this restaurant ws simply the location. The seafood just tastes fresher if you are looking at fishing ships while eating.
