The seafood soup, warm welcome, humour, relaxed service and mussels are bound to win virtually everyone over!

I really wanted to try some mussels while in Iceland and Hofnin didn't disappoint. They were fresh and delicious! My husband had the chicken dish with potatoes. He really enjoyed it. Great atmosphere with a view of the water.

No, dining out in Reykjavik is not cheap but the standards are very high and dishes here in Hofnin were exceptional. The tomato & coconut soup was totally delicious. Top dinner, all 3 courses. Helpful &friendly staff and the view !

This restaurant was very good. We had all sorts of items off the menu including muscles, cod, and haddock. No one was disappointed. It was your typical Iceland price for food, but well worth it!

A great harbour side restaurant in a distinctive turquoise building. On a nice day the panoramic windows at the front of the restaurant offer a stunning view of the harbour but you will need to reserve in advance to get one of these. Service is...More
