Staff very careful in advising on ingredients due to food intolerances and helpful in advising alternatives, Staff attentive in a pleasant way. Recommend the catfish on risotto - aka wolf fish. Steak was good and cooked to preference.

This is a very cozy restaurant with a room with window views of town. It was a rainy night but we were warm. The staff was good but a little slow. I had soup and salad so I could get up and get my meal....More

We ate at Bautinn during lunch and dinner. Lots of menu options to choose from. The Salmon & Catfish were delicious. Pizza was good too. Service was prompt even with a crowd.

The service was friendly, but the food really wasn't very good. I had pasta with shellfish. The pasta was way over cooked and overall flavor was unremarkable. Someone at the table next to us appeared to have left a full plate of pasta behind. Maybe...More

Definitely go here & order this dish. Creamy, rich & filling. Catfish usually doesn’t interest me. But this dish rocked! Friend had the garlic pizza & was disappointed. 2 other friends had the burger and both were extremely happy. Service was friendly and very attentive.

Mixed reviews on the food from our group: the salmon was delicious; pizza was mediocre. Prices were average to slightly high (for Iceland). Service was fine; not outstanding. Overall, no real complaints but I wasn’t bowled over. A solid choice.

Very nice restaurant in Akureyri with average food. Menu with a variety of food items. We had spaghetti and meatballs as a change and it was tasty served with plenty of freshly baked bread and butter. Service was good and our server was very pleasant.

We had to come here for dinner because a young man at the Cabella’s Outfitters Store recommended it especially the 5 item local Icelandic food plate which included “whale”. My husband absolutely enjoyed all 5 items. I had the Lobster Soup with the bread that...More

We arrived in Akureyri late Monday night, food choices were minimal. Bautinn saved the day, seating us 10 minutes before the kitchen closed. Smiling wait staff, no problem getting served. Tomato soup with bread, chicken wings and a burger really hit the spot for us...More
