This is one of the best restaurants we have dined in. The lobsters were amazing. Pizza and lamb were very well done as well. Soup was alright. Pricy but worth the amount spent.

wonderfully quaint establishment with a lot of local flavors. You must get one of the langostine dishes. My husband had grilled and I had bake with cream and both were equally out standing. Our Server(s) were fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable.

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.
