Truly exceptional food, had possibly one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten. Seafood and langoustine soup, catch of the day (beautiful fish) and the chocolate lava cake for dessert. Friendly, attentive service - chef came to speak to us and took the time to explain history of the restaurant, the art on display and some of the ‘must-see’ places in Iceland. Wholeheartedly recommend!

We had the spotted wolffish (didn’t know it existed) as the catch of the day and it was incredible.
Great seats and exceptionally friendly staff made it a very pleasant dining experience, I’d definitely reccomend.

We arrived in Akureyri in mid-afternoon and were looking for a restaurant that would offer us an early dinner. We chose Noa Seafood based on the reviews we had read online, arriving 15 minutes before the restaurant opened. When the chef saw us outside he opened the door to let us in. Several things impressed us immensely about the place. First, the chef was so informative about the country, its history, and culture, as well as the best places to go and how to see the various sights. Equally important, the food was outstanding - as I titled my review, it was truly the best food we had eaten the entire week we were in Iceland.

We ordered two appetizers/starters: a cheese and meat platter which included several samplers of each. The food was beautifully displayed and wonderfully tasting. The starter salad came in a cup-like bowl, and although it gave the appearance of being small, it easily fed the four of us. The catch of the day was monkfish: a fish we had never heard of before, and two of the members of our party ordered it and enjoyed every bite. One member of our party was a vegetarian, and the chef made a special dish of Tagine, which was outstanding. The other member had Langostino, and they were unable to eat everything on their plate.

The staff arrived while we were eating, and when we finished our meal we were given a tour of the facility, provided with its history, and the staff filled us on in rich gems of Iceland's history. It was the most memorable and informative stop during our entire stay in Iceland.

We went there for dinner. We did ask for recommendations from waiter and just follow his advise. One dish was fish of the day and one was some traditional cook cod fish. Both were so delicious!!!! Also he recommended red wine to go with fish!! So we did try and it was perfect! Also the dessert was also nice... so for me I recommen to go and try their foods...

We had a 7:00 PM reservation and were the first diners. The daily catch was what they called catfish but which was described by Derek McLean as wolffish We both had it and it was superb. It was served with mixed vegetables in the pan in which it was sautéed I had the langustine salad and my wife had seafood bisque soup. Both were wonderful. The portions were generous. We did not have room for dessert.
Derek, who I assume is the owner, came over and greeted us most hospitably. This is a world class restaurant that happens to be in Akureyri.
