Had the very best fish dish here (todays special). The fish meltet in my mouth. You have to try the local beer, Baldi. Seated right to the window with a view to the harbor. Would love to go back for more delicious food if I'm going back to Iceland/ Akureyri.

To enjoy the reindeer burger with a view in Strikid is a must in Iceland. There are no many places to eat so good in the north of Iceland, so, if you are in this zone, you should go and taste some of their dishes. Book in advance.

We enjoyed the restaurant tremendously. We showed up Without reservation and we were seated right to the window with a view to the harbor. The sushi is excellent as well as the dishes made with local seafood. An enjoyable experience.

This restaurant had a chef who was both inventive and capable. It served local delicacies (e.g., puffin, horse) and did everything quite artfully. We had a delicious meal and a wonderful time. There is outdoor seating for those who are so inclined.

The view onto the Akurery harbor is nice, the waiters are diligent and the cooks were quite fast. The signature menu offers a great meal for a good price and the dishes itself were delicious!

While I would have enjoyed many more braised carrots the artistic presentation was completely memorable. The clay pot on my plate was definitely fun. The carrot tops made the plate seem whimsical. It reminded me of seeing the colorful seaweed along the beach. My seafood pasta was delicious. My husband enjoyed the sushi. Our beer and wine selections were also... More

We took the stairs and thought we were in the wrong building. Restaurant is on 5th floor. Nice place, good food, very popular, good view of the water and ships in the harbor. Centrally located. Hint: take the elevator!

Great atmosphere with a beautiful view of Akureyri. Reasonably priced by Icelandic standards. Fish soup was flavorful. Plating was wonderful and picture worthy.

Found this restaurant on a travel message board. And am I glad we did! The food here was probably our best meal in Iceland. We started with the Reindeer & Puffin. The reindeer was thinly sliced and dressed lightly. Very good. And even though I didn't want to eat puffin (so difficult to eat something so cute!), I did try... More
