Try the minke whale

Strikiid is right in the center of Akureyri, on the 5th floor overlooking the harbor. Relatively small menu. We had trouble finding something we wanted. Eventually chose the langostine pasta which was excellent. This was in only restaurant I found whale on the menu. Minke whale was an appetizer. it... read more

We visited Strikid on our second night in Akureyri - a nice restaurant with fine food and reasonable pricing + very good service

Very disappointing meal. I had wolffish with langoustines which might have been acceptable if it hadn't been served almost cold. The vegetarian tomato dish was bland and also served cold. Staff were civil but unfriendly. One of the more expensive choices but we Enjoyed the other restaurants we visited in town much more.

My family group of four grown ups all chose the four courses menu with food from east, south, west and northern Iceland and that was splendid. We tasted both the seafood, fish and lamb and ended with a rhubarb/skyr dessert. Highly recommendable. The restaurant location on the 5th floor adds a perfect view to the perfect dinner experience. The restaurant... More

Wow. Just wow. We loved dinner at Strikid, best restaurant in Iceland so far. All 5 of us had the four course menu. Allergies weren't a problem at all, and the fold was just fabulous. Service is super friendly and adequate. The view you get from the 5th floor is also a nice bonus. I would definitely recommend this restaurant... More

We went there for Dinner because it was already recommended by Tripadvisor, the food looked excellent and it was just around the corner from our apartment. Dinner started with some nice bread and spread as well as an excellent beer: Icelandic Pale Ale from the local Einstöck brewery. My father went for a soup and a salad, my mother and... More

The view from this 5th floor restaurant is very nice,so try to book a table at a window. We had the 4 course menu, which had delicious fish, and lamb, on nicely done plates. If you are very hungry, maybe you should order extra side dishes.

Strikid is a rare find in a the small town of Akureyri. The food was excellent (especially the lamb) and our server was friendly and spoke perfect English. The views were a bonus (fjord to one side and a church on the other) and the drinks unique. Price may seem a little high but you're getting what you pay for.... More

Went twice during a recent stay, and found the place to be very good. Service both times was efficient and friendly, without being pushy. Food was very good both times (lamb excellent, which seems to be the norm in Iceland). Nice variety of cocktails (North Iceland one felt particularly native). Unfortunately it was too cool to be sat outside, but... More

I am not sure this restaurant deserves to be #3, but we had a good experience. We stopped there yesterday for lunch and enjoyed our meal. I ordered some sushi and my husband had fish. Everything was fresh and portions were large.
