We went to hofnin for a dinner and honestly I could send the compliments to the chef with every dish that came out. We had the catfish, trout and apple cake. All dishes were exquisite! Definitely recommend, great experience, very nice and friendly staff :)

This is a place with sharp and nice ambience - a classy place. The food was excellent - I do not think I have ever had such good pasta carbonara as here. We can recommend without any hesitation.

Lightly battered cheek, langoustine, creamed pearl barley and chorizo with a boiled egg sounded like a curious combination, but it was wonderful! Absolutely delicious fish, enhanced by the delicate barley, just brilliant. The mussels were also good. Delighted to have called in randomly for lunch...More
