Serves delicous food. Had the grill menues (1 time chicken breast / 1 time beef sirlion). Both of the dishes were very tasty. The meats were grilled exactly on the spot and had been served with excellent fries, coleslaw and a side salat. The staff is very friendly and we felt very well at this restaurant. Thumbs up!

Stayed in Akranes for 2 nights, and there's limited choices for restaurant. Eating on a Monday I was assured by my customer that there was no need to reserve, and he was right, a few free tables. We all chose different burgers, with me choosing the Shut Up burger and fries. The food took around 15 minutes to arrive, and... More

We found this place from a menu at our guesthouse and a recommendation from our host. Very attentive and friendly young staff and excellent food! We started with a soup featuring local wild mushrooms, and our entrees were the Cod with potatoes and "apples" (tomatoes, actually) and I had Lamb, with garlic potatoes and asparagus. All artfully prepared and warming... 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!). The staff are very polite, and the atmosphere is clean and comfortable.

The food here was really, really good. The atmosphere very cozy. My boyfriend had the "Shut Up Burger." He said it was one if the better burgers he's had in his lifetime - it was juicy, cooked medium rare with good accompaniments on the burger, nice bun and a decent sized meal. I had the salmon and was very happy... More

We were lucky that we came here early in the evening as, unlike others who came later, we got a table. The staff were really good and recommended dishes. The fish (cod) was excellent but they also recommended the salmon and the combination of ingredients interesting. The pudding with a melting middle was a triumph. The accompanying ice cream looked...

This is such a nice restaurant. I may have had the best hamburger ever here. All of us agreed it was wonderful food. It was busy with local residents and tourist.
