We stopped here during our stay in Hofn mainly because they had vegetarian options, but thank goodness we did! I had the veggie ravioli and my partner had lobster ravioli. Our food arrived promptly and it was beyond delicious! For dessert we ordered a brownie with berries and ice cream. I thought the portion was a little small for the... More

We came here for lobster, which the area is known for. Alas, it was so overcooked it was mushy, and inedible. When we mentioned this, the staff looked flabbergasted that we didn't like it with the consistently of fishy oatmeal. This may be the way they like it here, but we sure did not.

We were pleasantly surprised! I'd read reviews about the service being very slow and food so-so, but that was not our experience. We got the lobster soup, a trio of bird and fish appetizer, and the lobster ravioli - all was very good. The place was full when we arrived, and the service was very friendly and helpful.

The rest of Hofn's eateries were packed and queuing so returned to the hotel bar to eat and were very pleasantly surprised. It was a lovely ambience, the serving staff were wonderful, and the food really tasty. The dropped 'star'? One meal came out over 5 minutes before the other. We'd have rather eaten together..... Odd...

The pizzas are big, attractive but insufficiently cooked. Unfortunately the service is very low level, such a big waiting time in an half empty restaurant is not understandable. Only for the drinks we waited 20minutes, and one arrived wrong. I would try other restaurants in Höfn.

First the food, their lobster dishes are to die for, incredibly flavorful.Now the service just bizarre, The first waitress finally came over after we were seated for 10 minutes. we had to flag her down, which was strange since we had reservations and she seated us. She seated us with no menus or table settings and then never came back.... More

We had dinner here as part of a tour group of almost 20 adults. They accommodated a change of time then presented us with one of the best meals I have ever had. Lobster tail, white fish, salmon on mashed potatoes - fabulous! A delicious apple dessert and good coffee followed. Because it was a meal included in our package,... More

Then this is a great place. Some in our group of 7 wanted lobster so we stopped. Nothing really bad. Fairly busy and fairly expensive. Option of wine with meal fairly expensive. Option of dessert fairly expensive. Nice selection with mussels, fish, lamb, etc. Spacious dining area.
