Stopped by this quaint restaurant in Akureyri on last Saturday night. We were very impressed with the decor, menu, service, and staff. The food was excellent, wine list impressive and service impeccable.

RUB 23 is downtown and easy walking distance to shopping and bars. If going in May - September, I imagine you must make reservations. Food was great, service OK....top notch restaurant, but servers were young and inexperienced.
