    Hamborgarfabrikkan: Icelandic Burgers

    by travelfrosch Written Jul 27, 2013

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This recently opened place is the brainchild of a pair of Icelandic radio personalities, who wanted to open an American-style diner with an Icelandic twist. The original restaurant in Reykjavik was a huge success, so they opened a second restaurant in Akureyri. The fare features the standard burger, but also many fast food and comfort food items with an Icelandic flair. Their flagship item is the "Whaleburger," made from, you guessed it, ground whale. Beer, soft drinks, and milkshakes are also available.

    Favorite Dish: I tried the "Lamburger," a burger made with ground lamb, along with lovely french fries fried in lard as God intended. Sara had the fried kalamari, which Minifrosch was happy to help her eat.

    Nings: Icelandic Chinese Food?

    by travelfrosch Updated Jun 28, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    UPDATE: Nings is now closed.

    For a change of pace, you can give this place a try. Its lunch special was filling and inexpensive. It also serves dinner specials for one or two.

    Favorite Dish: I had the vegetable rice noodles. I got a lot of noodles for about Kr 600. Cheap and filling.

    Restaurant Strikið: Nice terrace on the top

    by Redang Updated Dec 3, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant and brasserie is also a good place for just a drink or coffee. The top of the building can be, if the weather is good enough, an excellent place to enjoy the view of the city and the fjord called Eyjafjö.rður.

    Bautinn: A restaurant worth its price

    by gmg61 Updated Jun 7, 2009

    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 restaurant has a wide offers but lacks personality.

    Blaa kannan - Café Paris: The blue pot

    by gmg61 Written Aug 20, 2008

    IMO this is the best place where to go in Akureiry!
    Nice, friendly bar, with nice ambiance, paintings hanging from the walls, newspapers and magazines ready for customers, friendly people.
    You can get breakfast or a drink and also get some food, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and in summer you can even take a seat outside in the sun and fresh air.

    There is no table service, customers are requested to serve themselves at the bar.

  • Bautinn: At last - value for money food in Iceland

    by Otley Written Jul 25, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Let's face it ..food in Iceland is a problem. There isn't enough choice and it is simply too expensive. Bautinn in Akureyri was therefore a pleasant surprise. An excellent salad and soup bar was followed by well presented and very good value for money main courses. This restaurant has already been recommended by a previous reader and I can only concur. When we were there it was pretty much full at 6:30 in the evening and many were locals.

    Favorite Dish: Fish was excellent but they had a wide selection of food. All of it looked good.

    Bláa Kannan: The Blue Cafe

    by travelfrosch Written Jul 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This cafe, located in the striking blue house on Hafnarstræti, is an option for breakfast and coffee. During summer, it opens at 8AM. We didn't try it, but the bread and coffee smelled good as we walked by. I suspect it's somewhat pricey, but probably not pricier than the hotel breakfasts, so it's something to consider.

    La Vita è Bella: Excellent Italian Restaurant

    by travelfrosch Updated Jul 1, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La Vita è Bella is a pleasant, romantic restaurant in downtown Akureyri. It is known locally for an excellent wine list and steaks, but it also has creditable Italian food. To keep the price down, you can split a pizza and drink the tap water generously provided in carafes. Excellent bread and spiced olive oil provided as part of the "cover charge."

    Favorite Dish: We split a four-cheese pizza. It was cheerfully served to us, already split, on two plates. The pizza was huge, so it was easily a full meal for both of us.
