Beautiful by the magic Ölfusá River
This is a nice place to visit throughout the year. The restaurant opened a couple of years ago in this old but renovated and colorful house located in the farm town of Selfoss, which has a long and remarkable history. It is nice to sit down beside the salmon-filled Ölfusá River after an hour’s drive from the capital. You relax right away. The service is friendly and you feel right at home. The langoustine bisque is a typical dish for this area, even though it is not close to the sea. It’s served neatly on a vintage-looking plate, and it’s hot and nice. The slow-cooked pork with pear and crispy prosciutto is a well-balanced dish. The main dishes, a vegetable dish with cabbage and carrots and slow-cooked wild salmon from the river nearby, are nice and natural. Tryggvaskáli is a good choice to stop for lunch, dinner or even just a cup of coffee or a beer on the terrace, which is open in the summer. It’s also a perfect place for large groups of people as they also have several different dining rooms...
