This has been a regular stop when visiting Akureyri. The burgers have been very good and you could alway depend on getting good food here. But no more. The burger was dry and left that bad taste of burnt fat. They have really managed to...More

Entrees come with soup (ok) and salad bar with varied offering. I had a fish casserole which was fine. Brusque service. Noisy.

We had the foal and it was probably the best food I've ever eaten. Great salad bar and the soups were incredible. Fabulous staff.

Similar to a lot of tavern/restaurants that we have in Canada. Decent selection of items. The food was okay but nothing special. The kids liked it more than my wife and I did.

I've never had whale before ... I'm glad I was able to try it at the Bautinn. It looked like and tasted like beef. It was very tender. There was nothing spectacular about the whale though and my wife had some average pasta. We had...More

If you just want to have decent food and don't care about the environment, this is the place for you. The ambience is a bit like a fast-food restaurant, but the food is enjoyable and prices regular for Iceland. From vegetables to whale meat, this...More
