Strikið, one of the finest places to dine in Akureyri, is spread out between two dining rooms on the fifth floor of an office building. The restaurant’s menu—created by owner and head chef Robert Hasler—features traditional Icelandic dishes such as lamb shoulder and seafood soup as well as modern fare such as sushi and reindeer burgers. The terrific food is matched to wonderful views of the fjord and mountains from huge picture windows and, on the long sunlit nights of summer, from an outdoor terrace.
This upscale fifth-floor restaurant offers majestic views over a nearby fjord and a refined menu with a diverse selection of dishes. Whether you plump for the burger or the beef tenderloin, the sushi or the slow-cooked duck breast, almost all ingredients are fresh and locally produced.
