This is one of the best restaurants in Iceland. The price seem to be reasonable. Host is really amazing and we are really overwhelmed with her service. Food was served at the right time. The ambiance was also very good. Wonderful selection of music. Hostess...always prefers customer satisfaction and she always tried her best to give her customers the best experience. I would strongly recommend the pancakes. This is the signature dish of the restaurantMore

Wandered in looking for an early dinner and happy hour after a long day touring. The staff was helpful and friendly providing good service. As happy hour was winding down it seemed like we were the only customers there. After sitting for a while with...just a carafe of water (didn’t want another beer as our hotel was uphill) customers began coming in again and we decided to order dinner. The daily special, salmon and pasta salad hit the spot. The best part? As we left and looked out over the town, the Aurora was beginning. The views gave us a great reason to rest frequently on our return climb to the hotel.More

Nice little restaurant, cozy, atmosphere, very friendly service. The food is not extraordinary, but good. Do you have an old Italian coffee machine, which produces decent coffee. One of the better places to go in Akureyri.

Great lunch spot in the heart of town but feels more local. Excellent pastries, salads, amazing lamb soup, panini and coffee. Super cozy and really nice staff.

While the food here was excellent the biggest selling point for Kaffi Ilmur is the location. Sitting up a gentle hill off one of Akureyri's busiest streets, you can enjoy your meal while people-watching over this charming little city. The service was very friendly and...swift (also witty, as my hostess countered my apologies for not knowing Icelandic with a quick "Why in the world would you learn Icelandic?") and the food, as mentioned, was great. I had the lamb stew, accompanied by the ubiquitous buttered toast and new potatoes which seemed to come with every Icelandic meal. This place wasn't on my original schedule but it was a very happy accident of discovery.More

Icelandic lamb soup and the fish special (salmon) were great. We returned back the following day and the food was great again, however portion sizes were inconsistent day over day. Day 2, lamb soup had little to no meat and the desert slices were half...the size. All together we would still recommend this place for a quick meal.More

We stopped for lunch and in the menu we also found 2 vegan dishes: not so easy in Iceland :). The salmon bagel was also delicious and a very rich dish! The dishes are good, of good quality with an excellent price/quality ratio. The place...is nice and comfy, the staff is very nice and polite. Excellent experience!More

I always choose this place in Akureyri for breakfast, it serves delicious dishes in a lovely old house. Staff is always helpful and friendly. Can't recommend enough. Go here, at least once if you got the chance. Won't be dissapointed.

The four of us, two couples, went to Cafe Ilmur in great weather. Our waiter from Czech Republic was incredibly nice and their food, especially their cheesecake, was amazing!
