“Am currently enjoying my meal there and cannot wait to review it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

My friends and I was wondering around town looking for a seafood place. The Bautinn offered what they called 'traditional Icelandic course' so we've popped in for our dinner.
We all decided to have the pan seafood with garlic bread, rice/ potato and boy it was delicious! This meal also comes with a self service salad bar and soup of the day. Spent only ISK3600 each!

“OK for quick meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Bautinn is in central Akureyri across from Hotel Kea. It is in average restaurant with a varied menu with something for everyone-salad bar, soup, pasta, entrees and desserts. All fine but nothing outstanding. Salad bar is large but dressings were bland. Pasta was below average. This is the type of restaurant, in my opinion, for when you are tired and hungry and just need a decent hot meal in a hurry so you can go to bed. Reasonably priced, clean and friendly service.

“good variety of food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We came there for lunch on a tuesday late in august , and had there a nice chicken salad, is was very good. The restaurant is in a good place in Akureyri you have a good view up to their bautiful church, and it is in the center of town. You can be sure to find something to eat for a good price.

“All quantity and little quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

If you're interest in eating as much as possible with little regard for quality, this is for you. The cod that I had was supposed to be grilled and it was served like a fish slurry. My wife's fish was similar, but very oily. Service and bread was fine, but for the same price, there are much better choices in town.

“City Center Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

This is a good choice if you just want to grab a bite to eat. While they do have a full menu, we just had sandwiches and soup. Very delicious.
