In the small, untouristy fishing town of Akranes, Gamla Kaupfelagid is definitely worth a detour if you are travelling in the West of Iceland north of Reykjavik (very near the tunnel underneath Hvalfjordur). The food is excellent--the salmon was outstanding, the chicken was tender and...More

Come here to get some good pan-european food; pasta, etc., but also note the fresh Icelandic faire as well. This is definitely a spot local folks come for a meal out, so don't expect the normal touristy offerings (we were happy to be without them!)....More
