Excellent food, great location, wonderful warm ambience and very good service. I would definitely return if I visited Reykjavik again, (which I hope to).

Me and my girlfriend had an amazing meal at Hofnin. We struggled to decide on a place to eat in Reykjavik, and we eventually decided on Hofnin. And we're really glad we did!

In general, food quality in iceland was really good almost everywhere, so it's quite a big thing to say that my best meal when there was in Hofnin! I had the fish soup for a starter and the catfish cheeks with risotto for main. They just left me speechless in the best possible way. We were also lucky to sit... More

The food you get in Höfnin is not the same as you would get in the rest of restaurants in Iceland. You will get the more true traditional meals set up in a modern way with great flavor. The waiters are always smiling and you feel that while dining there. Great stuff!

A party of ten of us had a wonderful meal - having originally booked for Sunday night the restaurant was so accommodating when our plans needed to change and they changed our booking. It would have been impossible to find any fault at all the food the service and the atmosphere were all top quality and portions were generous. In... More

We went for lunch just a glass of beer and a kg of mussels which was accompanied by great chips. So a little limited to what we had eaten for a review but what we did have was very good and the service excellent attentive without being over the top. So a very enjoyable lunch
