I visited Hofnin with my colleagues for dinner. The restaurant is right on the harbor and the staff was kind enough cater to my earlier booking request for a table by the window, which was super nice :) The atmosphere is lovely, very cozy and warm with a great view of the sea, boats etc. If you dine often out...

Ate here last night and had the pulled lamb which I must say was the best lamb dish I have ever tasted. My wife had the trout which was also delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive without being too much. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Great food served in a really cosy atmospheric setting especially on a cold winters night ,Very attentive service (without being intrusive) made to feel very welcome. Inventive menu ,the set menu we had was delicious and also relatively good value compared to other places we'd eaten at throughout our 12 days touring Iceland.

My husband and I came here last night to eat. We had the set menu which consisted of four amazing courses. Cured reindeer, fish bisque, lamb finished off with an amazing chocolate pudding with liquorice ice cream. As everyone knows Iceland is not cheap our meal came to £120 without the drink but it wasn't an average meal, it was... More

We chose the Christmas menu, which is for the entire table. It was a very fun dining experience. Each of us got to try new things (like pickled herring and reindeer pate) and felt like we were having a real Icelandic Christmas experience. The waiters were all helpful and friendly. They explained each item that was brought out, including some... More

We ate at Hofnin on our first night in Reykjavik and loved it. We were given a table by the window which was excellent as it was nice to be able to look over the harbour and see the people head out for the nighttime whale watching trips! The restaurant was very warm and cosy, perfect for the freezing Icelandic... More

We rent out rooms in London and our goal is to make our guests feel at home while they're away from home. It felt the same in this restaurant. On top of this the food was fantastic. Great presentation and we felt well looked after. Nice view on the harbour as well. We won't forget our waiter Andre (hopefully correctly... More
