Where to have lunch on Bornholm?

Bornholm has truly put its name on the gastronomical map, as new and exciting restaurants have popped up all over the island. There are a bunch of alternatives to choose from when you're feeling hungry in the middle of the day. And therefore it can be difficult to know where to go for a delicious lunch.

We have put together a list of our favourite lunch spots on Bornholm, so that you easily can find where you would like to go for a bite. The list contains a little bit for everyone - classic, Bornholmer favourites and newer, more contemporary restaurants. Welcome!


Hammerhavnens Kiosk, Sandvig

A good sandwich is underrated; that is, if you were to ask us. At Hammerhavnens Kiosk, a short way outside Sandvig, you can sink your teeth in a really good one. Perhaps it's even the island's best sandwiches. People gladly make the trip across the island to relish one of the kiosk's sandwiches for lunch, and with the view of Hammershus and the Baltic Sea, Hammeshavnens Kiosk is without a doubt one of our favourite lunch spots.

If sandwiches aren't to your liking, the kiosk also offers other dishes, such as sallads, toasts, and sausages. Have a drink as well! Choose from cold or warm beverages, or still your aching sweet tooth with homemade cakes and ice cream.

Address: Sænevej 15, Allinge


Norresan, Gudhjem

Down by the harbour in Gudhjem, you will find the cozy, little coffee bar and café Norresan. Sip on a pleasant brew of coffee and assuage your hunger with local, homemade food in the form of hors d'oeuvres. On the "plat du jour" it's often a sandwich comprised of homemade bread, which is easy to bring on-the-go or to enjoy by a view of the sea. 

Norresan is run by Peter and Pernille, who are steadily trying to give a cozy and comfortable feel to the place. Besides the terrific lunch, Norresan is also the place to go in case you're in the mood for a steaming cup of coffee, a superb gin & tonic, or a refreshing lemonade. 

Address: Nørresand 10, Gudhjem


Bakkarøgeriet, Pedersker

Why not eat smoked fish for lunch while visiting Bornholm? There are a bunch of terrific smokehouses on Bornholm, where you can order your lunch, but Bakkarøgeriet is one of our absolute favourites. Everyday the smokehouse prepares a fresh batch of smoked goods: salmon, mackerel, shrimp, and, of course, smoked herring, among other products. 

The place is a traditional Bornholmer smokehouse combined with a restaurant; fish specialities along with the local dish, Sol over Gudhjem (Sun above Gudhjem) are what's on the menu. If the weather's any good, enjoy your lunch on the smokehouse's terrace, overlooking the Baltic Sea. 

Address: Østre Sømarksvej 29, Aakirkeby


Restaurant Molen, Nexø

At the end of the pier in Nexø harbour, you can rejoice your taste buds by visiting Restaurant Molen. Enjoy a fantastic view of the Baltic Sea while an exquisite lunch is being prepared for you. The lunch menu varies from day to day, but there are often alternatives between warm and cold dishes, smørrebrød, and something sweet for dessert. The food is based on the Bornholmer kitchen, with crisp seasonal produce and fresh fish. What more could you wish for? 

The restaurant is located on the first floor, while the ground floor houses an intimate wine bar to quench your thirst or offer a minor snack. The restaurant is also worth a visit in the evening, during which it's a seasonal menu that is replaced monthly. 

Address: Havnen 6, Nexø


Râzapâz, Rønne

The name may sound a bit crazy, but râzapâz is actually Bornholmer for "a little rascal". The restaurant's name and concept goes hand in hand. Patrick - the owner of Râzapâz in Rønne -  has created a creative and somewhat "obscure" place, where the flavours and your experience are the focal point. On the menu you'll find a little bit of everything, from tapas and sandwiches to exciting and creative dishes. 

If you're in the mood for a glass of wine alongside your meal, the list of wines might be hard to find. Instead, ask the staff about what they recommend, and they will find the perfect wine for you. At Râzapâz, the individual taste experience is highly valued, and therefore they select a wine from their large wine wall that fits perfectly with your particular lunch.

Address: Store Torvegade 29, Rønne
