This is my the town I grew up in and always when I come back it’s like a tradition for me to go to Greifinn and have steak with bernes sauce because they have one of the best dishes of this combo.

Greifinn is without doubt one of the most popular restaurant in Akureyri . The menu is varied and the prices are moderate. Greifinn is ideal for individuals, groups and families that want to relax over food and drink. We make a point of running a family-friendly restaurant. A diverse menu is on offer with a wide choice of meat and fish courses as well as pasta and some of the most highly praised pizzas in Iceland.
