Description: PLEASED TO "MEAT" YOU Ok. You're in Iceland. Probably not for the first time. Not something you do every year, right? You will probably bathe in the Blue Lagoon and take a road trip to Gullfoss and Geysir. That's all well and good. But neither is something you eat. That's why we have 15 brilliant and creative hamburgers at the Hamburger Factory. And they are all perfectly square. Made from 100% fresh high-quality ingredients, directly from Icelandic nature. The Hamburger Factory is Iceland's most innovative gourmet burger chain. Packed with burger-craving customers since its opening in 2010, among the regulars is Iceland's best known fisherman, Eric Clapton. We have three wonderful restaurants in Iceland. The mothership opened in 2010 on the groundfloor of the highest tower in Reykjavík, right opposite Höfdi house. Our second one is in Akureyri, the capital of the north. It opened in 2013 on the groundfloor of the historic Hotel Kea in the heart of the town's center. The third one opened in the spring of 2014 in Icelander's favorite shopping mall, Kringlan. Be sure to stop by before you leave. You will love it. And we will love you back. BE SQUARE AND BE THERE!

“Rubbish service”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Went to this place as had some good reviews but found the service was awful. As I was a solo traveller the staff told me I couldn't sit at a table as they had a large party due and had to go sit at the bar. I wouldn't mind but the restaurant was more than half empty and was only about 6 o clock while the large party was due after 8! After explaining I only wanted a burger and fries and would be out by 7 at the latest I was told I either sat at the bar or I didn't eat there. Unsurrprisingly I chose the latter.

Can't fault this place at all. Service was excellent, food was amazing and staff very friendly and helpful. Saturdays are exceptionally busy so would advise to book but they still managed to find us a table without having to wait very long.Went back on more than one occasion and were recognized by staff and were given drinks on the house. Thanks guys :-)

“Excellent burgers but the worst service ever”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

The food is delicious , the menu is a very good one BUT THE HORRIBLE SERVICE IS UNEXCEPTABLE ... I m not even gonna write my whole experience coz it will take forever ... But one of the things that happeneed was that me and my girlfriend were eating our starters and a girl came with the maincourses ... And we told her that we weren't finished so she said " ok we ll keep it warm for you " that's not nice the bread will become wet and the burger drys up ... Then when we were ready from the starters they left us 15 minutes with the empty plates infront of us ... Coz the waiters were busy cleaning empty tables and talking to each other . Then the maincourse came and the waitress placed the food on the table but I had to.hold the starters plates in my hands so she will be able to place them in the table .... The service is horrible
