Five of us, two teenagers, one mum, one dad, and one grandfather. Everyone very happy with their food; three different types of burgers, beef, and chicken fajitas. The beef was cocked as requested and tasted fantastic. The burgers are 120g and come with a small to medium serve of chips. Teenagers could eat more than the burger serve. The chicken... More

This place had it all, until new owners came in and made the dishes more expensive and less quantity. Their pizza was something that made people go for a weekend trip to Akureyri from Reykjavik, which is a four hour drive, but today it's just ... mehh! Don't get me wrong, it's good - but not as unique like it... More

Horrible food quality and high prices. When you are vegan or vegetarian then you get semi cold overcooked pasta with watery and tasteless tomato pasta and frozen veggies that are still frozen. Omnivores food isn't anything to look for either. Pizzas look ok, but with those prices you get better quality at Domino's.

This is a great place for dinner. It was far enough off the tourist track and large enough that there was no wait. The cheese bread and olive tapenade that comes with the langoustine soup were probably the two best things we've had. I'm not even a fan of olives and I ate it all. The cowboy pizza was, however,...

It was a rainy evening in Akureyri when we arrived so this place was a very welcome respite. It's a large, bustling diner that has a bit of everything on the menu to please the crowds: from pizzas and hamburgers to Icelandic-style fish and meat mains. Enjoyed the arctic char paired with a glass of white wine and people watching... More

Easy to find, right on ring road, nice atmosphere with really good food. Relatively expensive by US standards, very consistent with comparable restaurants in Iceland. Great service.

Greifinn was a short walk from our hotel. The staff was friendly, the food was good and the portions were large. I know that $$$ is relative, but we all thought that Greifinn was much more affordable than most of the other $$$ restaurants that we've encountered on our counterclockwise trip around the Ring Road. We shared the cheese bread... More

There were 7 of us together and most had some kind of special request/s. They granted all of our wishes with a smile on their face. I had a pizza and it was really, really good ! Walked out very happy :)

Most of the group was satisfied with their choice of the menu. I and one other ordered a pizza with beef, fries and bernaise sauce! Next time I better skip the pizza and only order the beef, fries and bernaise sauce because the pizza was not good, it was very taistless and dry. The childrens courner was good. Service was...

After nearly a week of traditional Icelandic cuisine, my son and I were desperate for American style food. There were a lot of local families dining there and it's quite possible we were the only Americans in the entire restaurant. I had a steak and baked potato, which really hit the spot. My son had spaghetti and meatballs, which he... More
