Noahs Ark, In Akureyi, is a very short walk from the main accommodation area and worth every step. Bookings are taken; in September when we went it was very quiet but no shortage of good cheer and engaging humour from the host. like anywhere in Iceland expect to pay in excess of AUD35 for a main course; the choices being...

We celebrated a birthday at Noa. Service, food and atmosphere was great. Also, it was very affordable. I can strongly recommend this restaurant.

This place was recommended by a client and it was wonderful! Imagine going all the way to Akureyri to drive outside the small town in the North of Iceland and have a waiter from Pennsylvania! The seafood is excellent. Service is good. You will enjoy it!

We went to Noa for dinner based on the Tripadvisor reviews. The lobster soup was very good, as was my wife's langoustine salad. My fish of the day was mediocre at best. Certainly not worth the long walk from town.

On our adventure through Iceland, my brother and I stopped by for a late dinner. The waiter was very affable and provided us excellent service. The cod filet and lamb roast were wonderfully prepared. During our meal the waiter brought us complimentary shots of a crowberry liquer, which he claimed was a fine match with lamb. Opinions being subjective, I... More

This restaurant is about a 20 minute walk from Akureyri centre - with hindsight it would probably have been a good idea to drive there! As the only diners in the whole place we did feel a bit exposed, but we were greeted warmly by the chef. who recommended the lunchtime special of catfish, at a very reasonable price. The... More

Looking for a good place to satisfy our seafood cravings, we chose this restaurant after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. The food is executed splendidly, simple but beautifully cooked. We each ordered the cod fillet which came pan fried in a large skillet with seasoned potatoes and vegetables. The fish was delicate and light yet contained mountains of flavour.

While we waited at the door, no one looked at us or spoke to us for 10 minutes. Finally, we were grudgingly seated. The waitress was nice and the service was pretty fast after that. We had the ocean catfish and it was very good.

We ordered rainbow trout and black spotted catfish, the dishes were unreal. The best seafood we have ever tasted. The service was excellent! Such friendly and knowledgable waiters. Beautiful atmosphere.
