Nielsen is a newly renovated restaurant in the heart Egilsstair, East Iceland. The house, which is the oldest house in town, was built in 1944 by a danish man called Oswald Nielsen hence the name of the restaurant.

The owners of Nielsen restaurant are Slveig and Kri. Slveig was born and raised in Egilsstair. Kri is a renowned chef in Iceland who before moving to Egilsstair worked as a head chef at Dill restaurant in Reykjavk, the only restaurant in Iceland ever to receive a Michelin star (so far).

At Nielsen you can either sit inside or when weather permits on the beautiful tree surrounded patio. The main focus of the constantly evolving hearty menu at Nielsen will be local and seasonal ingredients taken at the peak of their flavours, preserved or used fresh depending on availability.

Kri and Slveig are both very passionate about cooking and cuisine and are most happy when sharing a good meal and drink with family and friends. In Nielsen restaurant they will try and share this passion with all of their guests.
