This was the best meal we've had in Iceland, the best starter I've ever eaten. I had the chef's selection starter, it was incredible. Cured lamb, goose, smoked 'seabird', dried horse and some cheeses with a smoke filled glass to add to the experience. Everything was brilliant. My fiancé had her favourite lobster soup, which was the best she'd ever... More

My customer took me to this restaurant when we were visiting Akureyri for business. One of the physicians recommended it. It is by the fiord so I would think the view is ok - it was night already when we went there. There were only several people in the restaurant. We shared a green salad which was really large. We...

Best seafood in Akureyri. Our ling was perfection. The sauce was so good we wanted to ask for the recipe so we could attempt it at home. We ate at restaurants with higher ratings in Akureyri and Noa was better by far.

We had the spotted catfish which was the catch of the day, it was a good thing we only ordered 1 dish as the portions were massive. The fish was very fresh and tender and the vegetables were fresh and juicy.

The catch of the day was so tender it definitely melted in your mouth. The salted cod (bacalau) was also tender and had a really good flavor to it combined with a nice olive oil sauce with olives and sun-dried tomatoes. Something special to try if you've never tasted it before! Both dishes also had a nice portion of fresh... More

Noa Seafood creates seafood dishes that I know I will never find again. The food comes out fresh and still sizzling in the pan. Grab your spatula and dig in. Every bite is unique and the flavor combinations are awesome. Highly recommended and my favorite meal of entire trip to Iceland!

Iceland is not a foodie paradise but Noa is one of the rare exceptions with excellent fish servings (though over priced as the case with all Iceland restaurants). Menu changes depending of the catch of the day.

Came here for a late dinner after arriving in Akureyri and the food was great! One of the most memorable in Iceland. I had the spotted catfish and the portions are VERY generous, with a lot of fresh vegetables as well. My friend got a full dinner as well and we struggled to finish our portions, so if you're not...

We are "foodies", actually work in the food industry and had higher hopes for this restaurant. We read a lot of reviews that made this restaurant seem appealing. Going back to pulling in to the restaurant, we should've taken note that it was a Friday evening at high peak dinner time and only two cars were parked outside. FOOD ~... More
