We read a lot about this place before our trip. Arrived around 7pm and it's already full. After placing our reservations, we were ushered to a lower level where there's bar and drinks countert. The dining area is nice and cosy and didn't have to...More

Such a great meal....Langoustines right form the Sea. A bit expensive, yes...but worth it. All food in Iceland is expensive, so you might as well get something of quality. I also had a smoked fish app that was amazing. And I don't really like smoked...More

If you want to treat your self you have to taste the grilled lobster with a glas of white vine. Pakkhus is one of the oldest house in Höfn and has a very nice adhomsire. The salmon is very good too.

The food was great, and reasonably priced (by Iceland standards). My kids especially liked the langoustine (mini-lobster) pizza. Portions were slightly smaller than expected though. After the main course, we ordered 3 desserts to share among 6 persons. Could have ordered 4-5 or even a...More

A lovely place for dinner. Great food and a really nice setting and atmosphere. Clearly very popular as we waited for 15 mins for a table. You have to get fish here as it's all locally caught. Nice staff too. Great spot!

Stayed in Hofn and went to Pakkhus for dinner. Food is amazing and service is impeccable for a busy restaurant. Catch of the day is very fresh and the langoustines are cooked perfectly. A must go to place when visit Iceland.

A restaurant that was originally built in 1932 as warehouse from scrap wood from other houses. The stamps on the wall is original and the floors depict the history of the house engraved with barrel rings and nudges and scratches. It proudly serves langoustine (Icelandic...More

I had lobster tails in white wine sauce and felt I chose the best dish on the menu. My companions were happy too, but I believe they were a bit jealous. Friendly atmosphere, pretty crowded; reservations are recommended. Upstairs is more comfortable than downstairs imho....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.

Sorry, I don't know. I would think so, but I personally would use the internet to find out for sure.
