The location is right on the harbour and easy to find. Staff are friendly and service is good. Best of all, the food is delicious and beautifully presented although a bit expensive.

The lobster soup was perfect with exquisite flavour and plenty of lobster meat. The plate of fries was hands down the best skin on fries I have ever eaten. This is a top restaurant with wonderful friendly staff.

The food was amazing! They staff was so friendly and accommodating! They even made a desert that is normally reserved only for the dinner service. I had the langostine in cream and the Skyre Volcano! Highly recommend!!!

We loved this venue, open all afternoon so we could have an early dinner at 5pm. The menu is quite small but has lots of options, it’s not all fish, but lots of fish options. Prices reasonable, for fish pie and a pizza plus two...More

Mouthwatering and the best langoustine in Hofn. Expensive but worth it. Order with heads on or removed. The langoustine pizza was also very good. Interesting building, all wood, lovely view of the harbor from the window seats. My second time here.

Had the opportunity to have lunch at this place as a part of a rather large group. Ha a lightly salted codfish which was very good. Do not know about price since I was not paying. Would recommend this place, liked the rustic interior design.

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.
