Large comfortable US style pizza/ burger type restaurant - attentive and friendly staff and good quality food. Enjoyed two lovely chicken burgers. Easy parking outside as well - would definitely recommend and return.

Greifinn it's a good surprise, the atmosphere it's great, the restaurant it's full but really organized. Pasta it's amazing, the burgers are basic and uncomfortable one of them coming with hair but the staff say sorry for that, really educated and give a opportunity to change order and make a good discount on the end! The price of beef and... More

I was starving when I visited this restaurant and the quick service was great! Good options for vegetarians like myself too. The discount code I got from my hostel was a pleasant advantage to going to this restaurant and I was pleased to see a lot of Icelandic locals there, always a good sign!

This is a family joint for locals - not fine dining, but the food is yummy - the lobster soup in particular - and the pizza is good and they have lots of options for veggie/vegan or other dietary restrictions. Always busy, very noisy, and just enough outside downtown that it is really mostly locals.

As with most restaurants in foreign countries, I took to the reviews on Trip Advisor to help me out. I was a little worried by the fact that half the reviews I read were good while the other half were not, but decided to give it the benefit of the doubt anyway. Let me just say... I should've listened to... More

A few of us went for a birthday dinner, the staff was great and saved the night. Neither me or my brother did like the ribs, they tasted bad. My wife's chicken was dry along with other chicken course my sister in law had. It sounded like the fish courses were the best, "plokkfiskur" and salted cod were given appraisal.... More

Loved this place! The food was served piping hot and prompt. Top it all off,it was lip smacking food, with the exception that it maybe a little too salty for some. Tried their hot wings,mushroom soup and pizza ! Portion is really generous, so I would recommend to order sharing portions.

Greifinn is without doubt one of the most popular restaurant in Akureyri . The menu is varied and the prices are moderate. Greifinn is ideal for individuals, groups and families that want to relax over food and drink. We make a point of running a family-friendly restaurant.

A diverse menu is on offer with a wide choice of meat and fish courses as well as pasta and some of the most highly praised pizzas in Iceland.
