This was one of the most incredible meals of my life. The restaurant itself is a renovated traditional fishing shed on the harbour front with a fantastic outlook. We arrived at 8 and there was a wait for a table so we waited downstairs in the charming bar and enjoyed a lovely glass of red. It didn't take long to be seated at all and the staff were very attentive. We are the lamb carpaccio and wild goose to start which was delicious and then the langoustine for main. My friend and I shared the cream and garlic and it was the best fish I have ever eaten. Please if you visit Hofn for whatever reason make it a priority to come to Pakkhus. My only negative I have is that there is not a sister restaurant in London. Thank you!

This is quite good food. The salad dressing is excellent and the langoustine is perfectly prepared. The dessert was memorable. The menu offers horse, duck, and lamb as well as the seafood. I was somewhat underwhelmed with the tiny slice of bread and very small salad served with the langoustine. We asked for butter for the bread. Seems like it was very expensive for the casual presentation. Our expectations may have been too high.

We came to Höfn mostly to visit this restaurant and have it's famous langoustine. You should do the same. :) it is excellent, best so far in Iceland, pricy (6500 ISK) but worts. The menu is not a long one, 11 dishes including the soups plus the catch of the day, only two non-seafood dishes. We tried most of them, a bit expensive but worths, tasty and the old warehouse atmosphere krowns it all. Skip the overroasted coffees, try the desserts instead. Service was kind and fast.

Nice location (former warehouse), friendly staff, but portions to small for the money payed. Had lobster soup which was quite watery (had much better one in another restaurant in Hofn)
