Really a busy place. Lucky us we had a reserved on a Saturday night. The food (salmon) does not make a difference. Not too bad on the Vegetables. We were happy to have ordered extra fries. Staff are forthcoming. Overall, hasty atmosphere that Europeans won’t...More

I have eaten at this restaurant through the years when visiting Akureyri. We all had different pizzas and we all agreed that they were lacking toppings. Given the prize of the food they should match it in quality. The service was good and it is...More

The classic atmosphere at Bautinn makes it the "must eat at" restaurant in Akureyri whenever there. The steak I had might want to see more veggies, like salads. I also miss the buttered mushrooms that were once with the dish I had. The two kids...More

Bautinn has the best location in town and that means there are many walk-ins. Book a reservation or you will wait. And then when you are seated, do not expect rapid service. Maybe we should have asked for more but we were patient and it...More

Loved this place. I keep hearing that food in Iceland is awful but its actually quite good. Had the salmon with perfectly roasted potatoes and spinach and asparagus with arugala on top. Perfect.

The food was fine, the service was fine, but the price, even by Iceland's standards was very high. I love the building, but that's all.

After two trips there, I know food is expensive in Iceland, but whether it's just this restaurant or things are more expensive in Akureyri, this place was really not a good value. Most of the table got pizzas, and at about $30 per personal-size pizza,...More

Having seen the menu online, we were keen to sample some of the unique Icelandic offerings, despite the rather high prices being charged, probably for the tourist market. My husband chose the whale and I had the char both $50 + which did include soup,...More
