The langoustines were absolutely delicious. They were fresh, simply prepared and cooked perfectly. We also had the duck leg and pork belly, which were succulent and flavourful. Desserts were equally tasty; we ate the ice cream and crème brûlée and both were amazing. Service was friendly and accommodating. It was worth the splurge!

Tried the duck and pork as well as the lamb and langoustine soup. They came in really large portions. The soup was delicious and the taste of the langoustine was very strong with large chunks of meat. The lamb was exceptionally well done, very very tender and different from the normal lamb. This went well with the red wine jus. The duck confit and pork was great as well, very tender. The pork was great, it didn't tasted greasy and went well with the teriyaki sauce.

A really great dinner, do note that they have a different menu for the day and evening.

The meal was pricey nonetheless. However, everything in Iceland is quite expensive.

I arrived at 1700, hence, there wasn't a queue, contrary to most reviews.

Had an amazing meal at pakkhus! They made a small error with our food and really went above and beyond to correct it. The langoustine was to die for. I cannot describe how delicious and fresh it was. The duck and pork belly was simply delicious! Our best meal in Iceland!
