Description: PLEASED TO "MEAT" YOU Ok. You're in Iceland. Probably not for the first time. Not something you do every year, right? You will probably bathe in the Blue Lagoon and take a road trip to Gullfoss and Geysir. That's all well and good. But neither is something you eat. That's why we have 15 brilliant and creative hamburgers at the Hamburger Factory. And they are all perfectly square. Made from 100% fresh high-quality ingredients, directly from Icelandic nature. The Hamburger Factory is Iceland's most innovative gourmet burger chain. Packed with burger-craving customers since its opening in 2010, among the regulars is Iceland's best known fisherman, Eric Clapton. We have three wonderful restaurants in Iceland. The mothership opened in 2010 on the groundfloor of the highest tower in Reykjavík, right opposite Höfdi house. Our second one is in Akureyri, the capital of the north. It opened in 2013 on the groundfloor of the historic Hotel Kea in the heart of the town's center. The third one opened in the spring of 2014 in Icelander's favorite shopping mall, Kringlan. Be sure to stop by before you leave. You will love it. And we will love you back. BE SQUARE AND BE THERE!

Billed as one of Iceland’s most loved restaurants, but we truly don’t understand why it was so packed. Outside of Iceland, this restaurant wouldn’t survive.

Bored teenage servers stood round chatting while food went cold on the serving hatch counter. Long wait time both for ordering and bringing the food. Drinks came after the first course had already been finished and the food was very mediocre.

The admittedly fun decor and cool combinations of ingredients in their burgers couldn’t make up for the very bad service and poor food quality. So many better restaurants in the city centre.

Went here at the start of our new G Adventures tour. Great place, full of atmosphere. Great service. Food was really good, burger cooked to perfection. Looking at the vegetarian options , good choice too. Only a 5 minute walk from our hotel. This place is on par with Original Hamburger in UK.
Highly recommend this restaurant.

We enjoyed a delicious meal after a long day of walking. Whilst our initial waiter was a little disinterested in serving us, he was possibly at the end of his shift as he was soon replaced with a very friendly young lady who served us promptly and with a smile. She even recommended some local bands to us and helped to correct my terrible attempts at speaking a little Icelandic.
The food was great, with a wide range of burgers available. The desserts looked fantastic but sadly I was too full to sample any. I'd certainly eat here again, though next time I might skip the fries to leave room for cake!

Recommended- firstly they were able to push back our time of arrival and, secondly, the food was great. Staff were welcoming to our group and helped make the night.
