This is a lively place with a warm vibe and good food. They were able to modify a dish to our satisfaction. The menu has a range of choices, including the best cold-water salmon I had in Iceland.

This restaurant is very conveniently placed, food was reasonable and the restaurant was very busy. Despite this the service was quite good and the conservatory was a very pleasant place to eat. Not fine dining but suited our needs admirably and was fairly good value.

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
