Review: Kadeau Bornholm (2015)Paradise is on a Tiny Danish Island
After three days on Bornholm we were already sold. This really felt like a dream. The passion and dedication for food that we saw, reflected in organic farming, animal welfare, sustainability, and great utilization of local produce had us convinced. Not to mention the stunning nature with beaches in the south, mighty cliffs in the north, and endless fields of rapeseed flowers and, forest floor covered in ramsons wherever you wander. However, the true diamond of this island had yet to be explored. Restaurant Kadeau was booked for our Friday evening. Imagine you went to heaven and there were no pearly gates. No soft clouds to step on or angels with feathered wings. Instead, there was a small cottage, soft sand to dig your feet into, and white-clad waiters. That’s what Kadeau felt like. A little paradise on earth.
A Visit to Kadeau Bornholm
Kadeau opened in 2010 and is co-owned by Magnus Koefoed, Nicolai Nørregaard, and Rasmus Kofoed. They have a sister restaurant by the same name in Copenhagen with one Michelin star, as well as a bistro called Pony which also serves Bornholm food. This summer they opened SommerPONY on Bornholm, which will close during winter months just like Kadeau.
We arrived early to take some photos. Our waiter and sommelier for the evening, Kristine, was waiting for us in the doorway.
– Should I put some Champagne glasses outside for you?
Yes, please do! We inspected the beach. Sand as soft as cotton. Rumor has it that Napoleon used it for his time glasses. On the horizon is only the sea as far as the eye can see. The Baltic Sea.
