Our housekeeper, a young girl at The Icelandair Hotel, suggested Strikid and we are SO glad she did... The service was good, the food was great (trout w/carrots and lamb filet) and the view fabulous! While there, we met an interesting couple (!) and a 'doctor' of falconry... who says dinner can't be educational. Highly recommend Strikid.

We were six persons having dinner at Strikid - everyone were very happy. I had 16 pieces of sushi, which was deliciously made and with a twist of fried lobster. The other guests both tried meat and seafood dishes, and were happy with them as well. The atmosphere in Strikid is calm, and the service was very good. Prices are... More

You don't usually get a good meal AND a good view - but here we got both! On the top floor, we overlooked the harbour and watched the sun set! Very nice! We shared a langoustine and cured goose appetizer that was delicious! We followed this with a pan fried trout for my husband and a beef tenderloin for me.... More

I've been the the Strikið restaurant many times, since I'm a local resident. Always had a good meal there but I did not think I'd write a review about it. But today at lunch I tried for the first time langoustine tempura sushi, and I tell you, it's the best sushi I have ever had. Beautifully presented on the plate,... More

We had done some research on Trip Advisor and other sites before leaving for Iceland and decided to dine here. We made reservations ahead of time and that turned out to be a good decision. The restaurant is on the 5th floor of a building overlooking the water. It was crowded but we were seated immediately. We ordered a bottle... More

Arctic char appetizer, langoustine pasta and duck were all great. The duck portion was large especially for an upscale restaurant. The pasta was also big for a "light" entree. Plentiful warm bread and butter. Service was attentive. The langoustine salad on the next table also looked a good choice. Very good service

The location, on a rooftop in center Akureyri, is great and the burgers were tasty. The sushi however were really bad, tasteless with dry rice and the service was the only indifferent and unfriendly one we encountered in Iceland. Not a place I would go back to.
