“A life saver!!!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

Thank goodness we found Bautinn because there was very little alternative in Akureyri which served simple but appetising fare. Two soups and salad followed by a main course plus dessert if wanted all for a reasonable price. Simple but enjoyable. A very friendly young team of servers.

“Good food with excellent services”
Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

Having 3 dinners when we are here. Good food, especially the soup!! The pasta is also amazingly good. Highly Recommended if you need fairly cheap restaurant food.

“Good local restaurant with a good choice.”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Visited here 2 nights we stayed in Akureyri. Good choice on the menu from Hamburgers to Pizza, fish to pasta. As said in other reviews add the soup and salad as it's unlimited and great value. Food is of a good standard akin to pub grub. So a safe choice If you're wandering round town looking where to eat. The burger joint across the street looked busy too and decent food.

“Perfect for lunch or dinner”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Bautinn in Akureyri is one of Icelands oldest restaurants and has survived all these years because they always seam to to be able to adopt their menu to the demands of the customer rather than vice versa.
I´m a citizen of Akureyri and this restaurant has been my favorite for decades.
The service is fast and and staff friendly and the food always excellent.
Most times they have offers for lunch but that doesn´t seam to be to affect the service or food.
It has still the high and personal standard.
I strongly suggest the reasonably cheap "Bernaise bomb" menu and from that the "Bautasneið", usually a horse file on slice of soft bread with lots of mushroom and onion, french fried and of course heaps of bernaise. Don´t visit Akureyri without trying. It´s a real killer! Ate there last week with a business parther and it´s still the same great quality.

“Iceland dinner”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

This restaurant is in a convenient location and the decor is pleasant. The food was nothing too remarkable but it was filling. I would say it was comparable to a Denny's in U.S. It was family friendly.
