Cozy restaurant, good sushi, probably nice view

This was our second "nice restaurant" dinner out, and also second one for sushi. The restaurant has a large terrace, but of course being a winter vacation, it wasn't open, nor would you want to sit out there if it was! But I'm sure in spring/summer, it offers a terrific view over the lower part... read more

Having arrived in Akureyri after a longish drive and settled into Alma's pleasant apartment, we wandered round town looking for dinner. Came into Strikid about 9pm, and got lucky as a table (right in the corner overlooking the fjord) cleared just as we arrived, and after being seated we noticed so many being turned away. really lucky. This turned out... More

Went there with friends for lunch and had the dish of the day! Good food and good service! Exceptional view over the fjord! We were lucky because there were few whales swimming around near the harbour witch was amazing to see!

My daughter and I had the most amazing eating experience here at Strikid! In fact, it was the very BEST vegetarian meal that I have ever had. Ever! And that isn't even the restaurant's focus. Rather, their focus is on a delicious menu of great, fresh options, in a comfortable many-windowed second-floor dining room with lots of ambiance. The chef... More

Maybe we've been spoiled this last week, but the food here was the usual high quality but with smaller portions and higher prices. The Langoustine and Skate starter was literally two mouthfuls for £12. Beef and chicken mains were more plentiful but still around £30 each. After a week here we're used to the prices but these were above good... More

Easy to find and with good availability (if you come early you won't need reservation), this place is a stylish restaurant with a beautiful terrace and landscape. The selection of food is very sophisticated and the selection is really wide; you can find here also puffin and whale-based courses. Desserts are good and the atmosphere is very relaxing. Definetly a... More
