Stunning service and lunchtime meal

We visited Rub 23 on a decidedly dull day - snow and wind storms - and enjoyed a quiet, delicious lunch of prawn entree to share and then a salmon with their signature rub. An absolutely stunning meal - and served with a salad (which is all too rare in current trends). Well worth a visit if you’re in northern Iceland

Wonderful fish dishes

The use of their own spices certainly made the food different to other places we visited. The service was good and the quality of the food was very good.

Excellent food and atmosphere

Had tried a couple of other good eateries in town but this in our opinion was in a different league. Great menue, great food, great atmosphere

Amazing in Akureyri

Went to Rub23 as a suggestion from our tour guide, Thora. So glad we did! Began with the Sushi Pizza which was so fresh with unique flavors. Also had the fried edamame. They came in a huge bowl which we could not stop eating. We each had a half portion of sushi to save room for dessert. We had to try the dessert that had pop rocks and caramel popcorn! It sounded very unusual but was delicious.

Perfect for an anniversary dinner!

In 2013, my husband and I were in Akureyri for our 24th wedding anniversary. Someone recommend Rub 23, so we went. The food was wonderful and the wait staff great. This year, we were back there for our 30th anniversary - and again, we had to go to Rub 23! Once again, the food was magnificent. I highly recommend this place.
