We dined at Tryggvaskali Restaurant one evening while staying in Selfoss. The food was delicious and the service perfect. This Historic gem is worth the splurge. We had Langoustine and fresh local white fish. Both entrees were delicious.

Our group ate here as part of the tour experience. It was a lovely setting and an easy walk from Hotel Selfoss. The room felt like someone's private dining room. The food was very good and nicely presented.

Although the food took longer then desired, it was well worth the wait. The staff were not exactly blowing us away with their service but the food again, made the experience. I am very picky with food and highly recommend this location. Just don’t order...More

Only you can make the reservation at the restaurant directly. I wouldn't rely on TripAdvisor members to make a reservation for you.
