My husband and I visited last night and came away really disappointed with this restaurant. When we arrived, we were told there was a table available by the window if we could wait a couple of minutes but ten minutes later we were still standing....More

Went after seeing movies in the little theater next door. Very cozy restaurant with excellent food. Had the curried lamb and it was wonderful. Prices bit high, but not unusual for Reykjavik. Highly recommended

The homemade tomato soup was great!! Especially on a typical rainy Reykjavik September day. A mall location with great personable service. Will definitely go back on our next trip to Iceland!!

Our first meal stop on arriving in Reykjavik, and not a bad choice too. We had lunch, just taking the lunch special (cod), which was well priced (for Iceland) and a decent well presented meal.

We enjoyed dinner with a wonderful view of the Old Harbor of Reykjavik on our last night in Iceland. The fish stew was amazing and highly recommended!

Went to Hofnin on our last night in Iceland. All 5 of us really enjoyed the food and the experience. Great view overlooking the harbor. (I got the lamb dish, which was two lamb chops along with some pulled lamb - wonderful dish)

We stopped in for dinner as a preview before the party for 10 the following night. The staff was great helping us figure out what to order. It's amazing to see the sun shining brightly on the nearby boats and ships at 10:30 at night....More
