Tryggvaskáli Restaurant

Before or after dinner, follow the walking path from the restaurant to the church. you walk by the side of the river, underneath the bridge and the view is beautiful.

Tryggvaskáli is a lovely restaurant in the town of Selfoss on the south coast of Iceland, just 40 minutes away from Reykjavík. The cuisine is a careful mix of Icelandic traditions and techniques borrowed from other cultures but all the ingredients are locally sourced and of the highest quality.

The menu features classic Icelandic ingredients, such as langoustine and other seafood, lamb, and skyr, prepared in innovative ways that allow the ingredients to shine. The Icelandic ingredients are often paired with more exotic flavours and the restaurant, of course, offers vegetarian courses. 

Tryggvaskáli is the oldest historic building in the town of Selfoss, built in 1890, and was actually the first house built in the area that later was to become the town of Selfoss. It housed the town's first children's school, first bank, and first telephone office. The restaurant's name comes from Tryggvi Gunnarsson, a member of parliament and the founding father of the town of Selfoss. 

For a luxury dining experience in a small town setting, surrounded by the history of old Iceland, head to Tryggvaskáli, you won't be disappointed!
