Dinner on Bornholm
Are you looking to be inspired by the Bornholmer kitchen or are you simply too tired to make your own dinner? Perhaps you've made your way to Bornholm exclusively for the taste experience? No matter what brought you to Bornholm, there's good reason to go on a gastronomic exploration across the island.
A lot has happened on the island these last couple of years, and if you were to ask us, Bornholm shouldn't solely be known as Sunshine Island, but also as Food Island. New exciting and creative restaurants have entered the stage, and the well-established ones, with years of experience, keep impressing us and our taste buds.
We have put together a list of the restaurants we prefer on the island right now. Here you will find alternatives for the whole family, the ones with an appetite, and for those who are looking for good chow that doesn't ruin your budget.
Gourmet restaurants on Bornholm
Picturesque and hidden, surrounded by sand, sea, and forest on southern Bornholm - we present Kadeau. In an old beach pavilion awaits an exploration of modern, Bornholmer-Nordic cuisine, based on local produce. The place has been renovated and decorated in bright materials, and the food is, inter alia, served on Bornholmer ceramics. All in all, a high-quality experience that people travel from afar to try.
Kadeau has been recognized for its high standard, and received its first Michelin star in 2016, which they have maintained ever since.
Opening hours: Thursday - sunday from 6 April to 24 September 2023 (also open Wednesdays in week 28, 29 and 30).
Address: Baunevej 18, 3720 Aakirkeby
Restaurant Njord, Svaneke
The restaurant is a part of Hotel Siemsens Gaard in Svaneke, and we would go so far as to say that it is an absolute must to eat here - whether you're staying at Hotel Siemsens Gaard or not.
As the name suggests, the food at Restaurant Njord is inspired by the nordic kitchen and based on local Bornholmer ingredients in season - fruit, berries, vegetables, fish and butcher's products. The menu changes as we move from season to season and there is always something new and delicious to try here at Restaurant Njord.
The restaurant is newly renovated and nicely decorated with light, bright colours and beautiful wooden furniture. The atmosphere is something else and it is very clear that everyone at Restaurant Njord has a big passion for food and your overall experience. Enjoy your dinner with a breathtaking view of Svaneke Harbour and the Baltic Sea.
Opening hours: From 30 March 2023 and the rest of the season (up to and including week 42).
