“Their guillemot in blueberry sauce addiction.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

We discovered this restaurant by chance in 2011 and returned there in 2012 especially for guillemot in blueberry sauce. Food other than guillemot was ok as well (to be noted that we ordered Iceland cuisine only). Both times we’ve been there, place was overcrowded, so you’d better book in advance to avoid queuing. Taking into account that restaurant was 100% occupied waiters were doing well, however service was not that fast as we wish it to be. Also it was pricey.
But, after all, if I will ever visit Iceland for the third time, I would definitely go for their guillemot in blueberry sauce again :-)

“Upscale, but accomodating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

We had wanted to try Noa, but readers beware, at this time of year (I guess), it is only open Thurs-Sat. Anyway, the two of us ordered one appetizer and one entree to save money. The guillemot appetizer with blueberry sauce was great. The waitress offered to bring us another plate so we could share. What then arrived looked to us like two orders of whale instead of the one we ordered. However, we were only billed for one, so the cook took the time to prepare two beautiful orders for the price of one, although I assume they had to have been smaller quantities. Anyway, the whale was prepared beautifully and was fantastic.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

Saturday lunch two of us orderd the same hamburgar and they where totally without any "tast" and more like water than anything. For 2.400 is kr this was a bad deal. And the waitress said oh when we told her how the food was ...

“Delicious Fish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

Dinner - Loved salmon, trout. Reindeer was a bit gamey. Whale available but didn't try it. Middle of downtown and on top floor so great views!

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

We went twice and had excellent meals both times. Used by locals so it must be good! Don't be put off because you have to go up by lift and cannot see inside. Great menu, views and service. A must if you are in Akureyri
