Best Restaurant in Akureyri?

We're traveling to Iceland at the end of May and will find ourselves in Akureyri on the evening of our 46th anniversary. I would appreciate any recommendations for great restaurants. We will be staying at the Hotel Kea on Hafnarstaeti. I am not concerned about prices. I know Iceland is expensive. But, in 1973, we went out to dinner to celebrate our one month anniversary to a lovely restored train station in New Hampshire. Dinner was great, but cost us the equivalent of a month's salaries. So, relative to where we are fortunate enough to be today, I am just looking for a fine place to eat.

Thanks for the help.

I'm still planning my Iceland trip, but I will be in Akureyri for a couple of days and have been looking at restaurants. In terms of higher end restaurants, Rub23 stood out to me (and it's around the corner from your hotel). There's also Strikið which has a tasting menu in addition to a regular menu, and even 1862 - Nordic Bistro located in the cultural and conference center. Happy anniversary!

Please report back on where you ate when you get back. I'd be curious to hear about your experience.
