I had read tales of great cuisine in Iceland and I wasn't disappointed with this little gem! Maybe the exterior doesn't look the most welcoming but that changes when you enter, the staff were really great and enthusiastic, the menu was explained in detail to us and we made our choice of the duck and langoustine tails, maybe sounds an...

They know what they do well and excel at it. The lobster is to kill for and if you are on a budget the lobster pizza is simply amazing.

We arrived just in time for the closing time, anyway the guys let us have dinner. The starter was fantastic and also the main course. Prices are in the range of an Icelandic restaurant.

We started with the langoustine soup and it was excellent. My wife had the langoustine baguette which was good. I had the combination langoustine tails and whole langoustine which was heavenly!! No sauce needed. We had a skyr dessert with espresso to complete a perfect meal.

This is a good restaurant in Hofn, but a little too pricey for the value you get. The place is standard, the service is very good, the food is good and the price is a little high.

Ok, so we're in Hofn, the langoustine capital of Iceland. I had had langoustines at another restaurant on a previous trip and was underwhelmed. My sister in-law said we HAD to go to Humarhofnin so we did. We ordered the 450 g of langoustines (ISK 7300 or about $65 USD) and the arctic char (ISK 4500 or $40 USD). The... More

The only place to go for Langoustine in Iceland! Yes it's expensive, but it is WORTH every penny. I have taken friends here every time I've visited Iceland. PHENOMENAL!
