Take off from Reykjavik and into the wild to discover the Silfra restaurant in the architectural delight that is the ION Adventure Hotel. The building originally housed the employees of Nesjavellir power station and sits within the Golden Circle. While the hotel restaurant serves some of the finest Nordic cuisine in the region, it’s the Northern Lights Bar that you visit for. As the name suggests, it’s the perfect place to plonk yourself with a drink and wait for the best light show on earth to commence. Chef Sigurður Ágústsson member of the Icelandic culinary team and Þráinn Freyr Vigfússon are at the helm of the Silfra Kitchen.
The beautiful design of the restaurant and the spectacular surroundings compliments the food served at Silfra perfectly. Everything from freshly caught Arctic Char from Þingvallavatn to the really unique icelandic Skyr brûlée will open your eyes to modern icelandic and nordic cuisine. Silfra is open to all, not only the guests at the hotel but to everyone willing to make their way to through the spectacular nature of Iceland. The view on the way is astonishing so remember to enjoy the ride as well as the food at the restaurant.
