The location is excellent overlooking the old harbour in Reykjavík
Classic Icelandic food modernly outfitted
This restaurant is right on the harbour so ask for a window seat. Our starters were very good indeed but the main courses were very large & in particular the fish stew (actually a dish of mashed fish with possibly onion- not really what I was expecting) was very rich. The staff are very nice and there is no rush to vacate the table.
Really nice in the old harbor, with a great view. Nice fish dishes,and a good childrens menu. The staff was really helpful and nice!!
If you have a large group, Hofnin can work with you to figure out a great menu. We were a party of 18 and they gave us three options: fish, lamb, vegetarian. I can only speak about the lamb. Although it was cooked to a standard medium it was tender and the least lambie-tasting I’ve ever had. It was excellent. This came with sautéed potatoes, as well as squash purée with some sautéed squash complements. In a word: delish. I did not hear about the fish although the presentation was beautiful. A colleague raved about the gnocchi on the veg plate.
Loved Hofnin on our first evening in Rekjsvik – it’s like and old cosy boathouse on the harbour, decor authentic to bits of yesteryear. The staff are winderful. We had the fish soup which proudly won them a medal in 2012 and I had a very hearty shrimp cocktails- no two spoonfuls of shrimp here, with lots of lettuce, it’s a good size!
