I get really upset when i paid a lot for food yet it is not fantastic but this is one of those restaurant which i think is worth my money. We had a lobster bisque to begin with. It was not the best lobster bisque I had. It had chunks of lobster meat but I thought it was a little... More

I had the 'Selected and cut Langoustine tails' for my meal. It was pretty good but very expensive and I was still quite hungry after eating since I had a busy, full day of touring/working up an appetite. Ended up stopping for a gas station hot dog to fill up after a $80 meal (main course only, no apps or... More

I very much enjoyed the Baguette Langoustine I had for dinner here. It was fresh and not too heavy. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Would recommend to anyone visiting Hofn.

I wish I'd eaten at some of the other restaurants serving languostine for comparison purposes. We each had the six tails dinner that consisted of six tails split and a very small salad. The tails were good but probably could have been better. Service was fine and the interior of the restaurant inviting and warm. I've attached some photos. Thanks... More

We had the langoustine pizza and the tails, I would highly recommend this if you are passing by Hofn! Left satisfied and my boyfriend was still raving about it on our way home. Great service as well!

Today we had dinner in this restaurant to try the famous Langoustine in Iceland! There are 10 people in our group and all of us ordered Langoustine! There are different prices for Langoustine and it is found the heavier weight with lower price (450g Langoustine cheaper than 300g) Why? In fact, 300g without the shell but 450g including shell! The... More
