The atmosphere of Pakkhas was warm and welcoming. The entire wait staff was friendly and attentive. We had the lamb (so tender and delicious) and the langoustine pizza and soup. We would order the lamb again!! And the others were good too. Our dessert was a traditional Icelandic dish...a yogurt mouse with various toppings to look like a volcano! Fun,... More

Nice restaurant with craft interiour, good service, interesting story and right sea food. Also quite reasonable prices as for Iceland ( at least table water is for free). It's worth to try local beer with theme

First, the food is excellent. My merry band of three adventurers really enjoyed our evening in Hofn, and both the service and food was exceptional. They make you feel completely at home in this warm, reclaimed-wood restaurant with an excellent view. We had several different entrees (including the vegetarian option), and it was all delicious--some of the best food on... More

Restaurant is cozy and attractive inside. I thought my 'catch of the day' was great but my partner's lamb was incredible - so tender! I'd love to visit again... if only we weren't leaving the country!

I had read a lot about this restaurant before going to Iceland. We were staying about an hour away from Hofn, so we took a chance and drove here for an early dinner after doing a glacier tour. For appetizers we had the fried feta, langoustine soup, and the lamb and wild goose. For entrees we had the rib eye... More

This was my 7th day travelling at Iceland, we mostly ordered lamb for our dinner, Pakkhus's dinner was my favourite one. The slow-cook lamb was the best we had in Iceland. If you like lamb, you must try it, it is excellent and different from the other restaurants. We also ordered Langoustines with butter and garlic, it was good compared... More

I am a vegetarian so it was a bit harder for me to find something, but there were a couple options. The food was good and the dessert was as well. My mom had the lobster pizza and loved it! The restaurant itself was lively and we had a great view!

I don't often write reviews but my friend and I were so impressed today that we felt we had to leave one right after visiting. We had the duck and goose starter which had the subtle duck aromas complimented by the rich deep flavour of smoked goose (which I liked but my friend felt was a bit overpowering but that's... More
