We had the ling cod and it was absolutely delicious. The servers were prompt, friendly, and helpful. I only downgraded it slightly because of the noise. It was busy and the restaurant is all one big room, so noise levels were quite high

It is rated as the best restaurant in Hofn and indeed. Must try the local lobster and fish! Don't forget the local beer as well.

Amazing food. (Three types of the locavore langoustine available) Friendly service. Great atmosphere. Reasonable prices (for Iceland) What's not to love? In fact, we are returning for round two tomorrow night. No reservations taken because it's the only packed restaurant in town.

The Lonely Planet mentioned the deserts so we left some space and the desert was the best part of the meal! We had the skyr volcano and the parfait. Both where beautiful and delicious! Worth every penny!

Overall, a great meal! For starters, we had the Langoustine Soup and Fried Feta. Both were very good, but the Langoustine soup was exceptional. We both had grilled Langoustine for the main course, but mine also came with a Langoustine spring roll. All the Langoustine...More

Response from Pakkhus R | Property representative |
Pakkhús does not take reservations. If the restaurant is full when you arrive there is a nice waiting area with a private bar and card games to kill the time.
Is the restaurant open in the middle of October?
