“Avoid the sushi!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The location, on a rooftop in center Akureyri, is great and the burgers were tasty. The sushi however were really bad, tasteless with dry rice and the service was the only indifferent and unfriendly one we encountered in Iceland. Not a place I would go back to.

“Great view, great food, great service!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We'd heard mixed things about this place, but this year on our third visit to the city we decided to give it a try. Even if it wasn't all that, it would still be worth it for the view.

Well, we were really glad we did give it a chance, because we found it excellent. A yummy blueberry cocktail was a great start, and what followed didn't disappoint either. Deep-fried sushi? Yes, it sounds so very wrong, but it was so very, very delicious. Steak was fantastic as well, and then there was this peculiar dessert, a cake made from whey, if I remember correctly, It doesn't look like much, but it was rather lovely.

On top of the great food, we were served by an incredibly sweet waitress who was happy to chat and explain unfamiliar things on the menu. As it's Iceland, of course it wasn't cheap, but you wouldn't pay much less for this quality of food and level of cooking elsewhere. For us it was a definite winner!

“nice place to relax after whale watching”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

After our whale watching, we checked in a nearby Kea Hotel and was suggested Strikid. The Icelandic waitress told us this means line.

All of us ordered the seafood as suggested by some friends in our tour group. Two of us had the cod with the gnocchi, which they enjoyed so much. I ordered the trio fish for main course which was also succulent. The local dark beer was my favorite.

It was a nice view on the top floor especially it started to pour in the middle of the meal. We enjoyed watching the rain in the cosy restaurant.

The elevator was definitely a nice little surprise and quite humorous too. You have to find out what it is yourself but try to book ahead or go early.

We had a marvelous walk after the meal as the restaurant was close to all other happenings.

“Great lunch”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

Had the lightly salted cod from their lunch menu. A perfect dish in my opinion. The fish was perfectly cooked and the bacon and chorizo complemented the cod brilliantly. Already longing for more. At abt 30 USD I believe this was fairly priced as well. Service was good, maybe the fact that there were only abt 10 other people there when I ordered helped. Definately going there again!
