Excellent restaurant right on the harbour. Beautiful interior, I had the catch of the day, which was a delicious Ling bake and skyr mousse for dessert.

The reviews didn’t lie. Loved this little restaurant in the small town of Hofn. Historic, but gets very busy with dinner rush. We had to wait in the downstairs bar, which had great accommodation and done pretty good drinks. Food was great, decent wine list....More

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.

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.
