Ate here twice. Good food selection, with several options including soup and salad as part of the price. Prices in Iceland are expensive so in that respect this is a reasonable priced menu. The waiting staff are very friendly and service excellent.

I stopped here for lunch on a cold day. The restaurant offers complimentary bread, soup and salads along with the meal you order. the soup was a welcome delight on a cold day. The service was excellent.

Went there for lunch but found it hard to identify anything on the menu that appealed or seemed worth the money. Strangely, we were too hot! Food was OK but I certainly wouldn't go back.

The fish lacked freshness, mediocre salad bar, ok service but ripoff prices for what you get. The restaurant is outdated and Akureyri's restaurants in general too expensive and are not high end and offer little culinary vision or value compared to Reykjavik or Stykkisholmur, suggest...More
