I´m a local to Akureyri and this is one of my favorite places in town. Here you can visit the Canaries even if it is - 20 C with imports of cheese, wine, meat and other delicacies. And the price is right!

The location is highly interesting: perhaps the oldest surviving house of Akureyri. The owners are two very pleasant gentlemen from Tenerife. And they offer something much better than the average Tenerife fare. Various tapas very moderately priced. To share we has a collection of fried...More
