SILVA VEGAN RESTAURANT
Silva is a friendly and cosy green restaurant in the heart of Eyjafjord rural area. It offers its guests cooked vegan and vegetarian dishes and a raw diet option along with healthy cakes and desserts. Guests will have the opportunity to try out their fresh juices, smoothies and healthy shots for an energy boost. Their tea and coffee are also adapted from organic ingredients. Silva focuses on balancing a varied menu with dishes that are made from the finest, local ingredients so everyone should find something of their liking. The menu usually consists of a choice for a meal of the day, ranging from soup and bread, hot vegetarian or raw diet along with all kinds of smaller bites and snacks, such as wraps, cookies and fruit sticks.
It’s a family run business, owned by Krístin and Grettir but they also live locally. This makes the service very personal and the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. The restaurant has a spectacular view where you can see the entire Eyjafjord, from Kaldbakur basking in all its glory, and eastwards across the bay to where the splendid mountain Kerling rises. Silva is in a rural setting and is an ideal stop for those who are travelling around the fjord, wanting to stop for refreshment on the way.
There are no scheduled opening times during winter, so if you are travelling during winter and want to try out this excellent green restaurant we recommend that you give Kristín a call on +354 8511360 for a pre-booked reservation.
The soups at Silva. They are always so tasty and delicious while being healthy and filling at once. They offer different soups every day, so just ask Kristín or one the of waiters what soup they offer that day. The soups are served with bread, flaxseed crackers and hummus. Silva’s ‘hnetustykki’ or peanut bar is also something you should not miss while there. A delicious dessert that pairs perfectly with their organic coffee.
