The langoustine is captured just off Höfn’ s coast and widely celebrated as a town delicacy. The langoustine is distinguished from lobster because it is much smaller and its meat is said to be sweeter.

Customers testimonials

“Amazing and so friendly!”

We were told to go here from other travellers and we are so glad we did! We have been travelling for 2 weeks and this is by far the best food of the trip. We even ate here a few days in a row, which means we must like it!!! The service was great and always cheery, we even made friends with a few of the staff and enjoyed an icecream on the house for our honeymoon! I highly recommend Kaffi Hornid!
