In the heart of Rønne, Râzapâz breathes life into Bornholm’s dining scene. A reflection of its Bornholmian name meaning ‘young daredevil’, the establishment thrives on spontaneity. Owner Patrick Hult, drawing from stints at prestigious places like Noma, champions a relaxed approach: think wrinkled shirt, big smile. The ambience mimics a familiar holiday home – vintage furnishings, floor-to-ceiling wine displays and an intimate open kitchen. Diners can indulge in a Nordic bistro-style five-course offering or rustic French tapas.

Gudhjem’s gem, Norresan, serves up the authentic essence of Scandinavian cuisine by the scenic coastline. Here, traditional smørrebrød meets modern culinary twists, like their much-raved-about op la.
