Cute little dinner with delicious food for very reasonable prices! We had traditional hot dogs and a beer after a long day of hiking and driving! Loved this place.

Came for a drive into Hofn after our Snow Mobile excursion had been cancelled. Enjoyed the sites and needed to grab a bite. Came across this Diner on google maps and were impressed with the reviews. We were not left disappointed. From super friendly service,...to great food at great prices this is a must visit. If we weren’t leaving the area tomorrow we would return but sadly we will not be able to. Would recommend this to anyone! Only negative is the seating area is small, so if busy you won’t get a seat! However they do, do drive through!More

After a long day of exploring we came into Hofn expecting to lobsters but none available and we bumped into this diner while searching. Secluded in a corner opposite the Berjaya hotel it's small but always crowded and even has a drive through take away...counter. Small menu but great tasty food that fills the soul. Freshly made to order and full of flavor and just right doneness. They even let us try the different items in the milkshake before we place our order. Very friendly people, fast service for a quick turn around. Parking available next to the diner. Any time you are in Hofn give them a visit and try their fish and chips and Keli Mexican burger. Comes with fresh salad and that crispy fries. Do not leave without tasting their fried avocado. This is the first time I've tasted this and they are so good I would have ordered a second if not for the crowd.More

We stopped in charming Höfn to stretch our legs and admire the marina. Hungry, we headed to Hafnarbuðin for humarlokka. This cosy diner/café has friendly staff and delicious food. After devouring our humarlokka, we happily indulged in a chocolate-dip ice cream cone and a milkshake....Highly recommend.More

Very disappointed with fish and chips. Their signature dish was well presented but on cutting open the two pieces of fish the depth of uncooked batter was greater than the depth of fish and not pleasant. It was disappointing as the restaurant had a nice...atmosphere and the staff were very pleasant.More

Hidden gem, must try, recommend etc. Really good! We googled/tripadvised where to eat in area around Höfn. This place had high score. We understand why. We ate the prawn sallad and The lobster baguette with sweet potato fries. Excellent! They forgot the avokado in the...prawn sallad, we told them about and they came out with a small bowl of the green gold.More

Wow. Im glad I reviewed this place beforehand and got to go. We got there just at 6:15pm and this place had 2 tables. Within 5 min a bus came and more people showed up and the place was busy. The food was incredible as...was the service. Prompt and quick. We ordered the FishNChips with onion rings and the Fried Chicken and Rosti burger with fries. Amazing! Wish I had more appetite to try their ice cream too! Great value for Iceland and amazing meal. 100% recommend.More

Found this spot by accident and had a great meal. My husband had the chicken fingers and fries and I had the lobster sandwich. Both choices were great!!! Highly recommend this spot because it had lots of choices and was very good.

We accidentally visited Hofn and since we were hungry, we decided to stop by at this place. What a great decision this turned out to be! Fish & chips were absolutely amazing, just like the lobster sandwich and sweet potatoes on the side! To sum...it up, we ordered two milkshakes which were so creamy and delicious! It's also worth to mention that prices at this cute little place are very reasonable for Icelandic standards! Would recommend this place to everyone!More

The best lobster baguette! We actually drove here out of our original route since we got 2 different recommendations by locals to eat here. The lobster baguette was amazing and worth the drive! Definitely recommended.
