Even a more mature public (55+ to 65+ of age) can enjoy a dinner at Greifinn. Popular amongst locals, tourists certainly find their way too. Friendly staff with good and quick service! Tasty mains, good beers.

This was the most reasonably priced restaurant of our 2 week stay in Iceland. For lunch they have a soup and salad bar for less than $20USD. They also have burgers and pizzas and other sandwiches. All of our food was very tasty.

The prices are standard for Iceland (pricey by North American norms), but the pizza was very good. We went here based on positive reviews and a recommendation, and weren't disappointed.

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.
