It was our second day in Iceland on a road-trip around the island. The owner of Akra guesthouse told us we should try it and we haven't regretted his tip. Although the restaurant looks very stylish the prices are regular for Iceland. The food was...More

...but I can say the Shut-up burger is one of the best burgers I ever had! Hearty meal, gorgeous taste, well-cooked french fries: everything is perfect. Add a beer, like the subtle Einstock white one, and enjoy. The up-to-date menu+prices is on their website.
