Hotel Frederiksminde

In 2016, the “Michelin Nordic Guide” awarded its first stars to the province – including one for Hotel Frederiksminde. And 2016 was the year when Hotel Frederiksminde received their first Michelin star for their chef, Jonas Mikkelsen. Since then, the restaurant has maintained their high standard in 2017, 2018 and 2019, and the Michelin star therefore brings the hotel into the sphere of Geranium, Era Ora, Formel B, Søllerød Kro and several other similar restaurants in the metropolitan area.

At the restaurant, you will have an exceptional gastronomic experience with a relaxed atmosphere in idyllic surroundings on Præstø Fjord. The food is based on local produce and nature – including the hotel’s own kitchen garden, where the chefs have lovingly sowed and planted every little seed and cutting themselves.

Restaurant Babette

Restaurant Babette in Vordingborg has previously been in the race for a Michelin star, but unfortunately it has not yet succeeded. But don’t miss out on a visit to the amazing restaurant. Since the restaurant opened in 1991, it has utilised the area’s local produce and skills to deliver one beautiful and flavourful dish after another. This has also meant that Babette has been named Restaurant of the Year by the Danish Dining Guide several times – most recently in 2017.

Vallø Slotskro

When speaking of gastronomic awards, Vallø Slotskro must have a mention. The restaurant has recently been acknowledged in the White Guide 2019 as one of the 154 best restaurants in Denmark. With a direct view of Vallø Castle from the restaurant, it’s difficult not to be enthralled. Add to that the fact that the dishes are served with splendour and grace, and you will be completely sold. The mood and atmosphere are unique, relaxing and addictive! 

In addition, Vallø Slotskro is the perfect place for serious wine lovers. The restaurant has been honoured by the internationally acclaimed Wine Spectator for its excellent wine list. With a wine list featuring around 800 different bottles to choose from, this award is well-deserved!

Rønnede Kro

With a history dating back to 1825, a status as a Royally Privileged Inn and visits from many great personalities such as Walt Disney, Dirch Passer and H.C. Andersen, the story of Rønnede Kro almost speaks for itself. The operation of Rønnede Kro rests in the hands of Silje Brenna and Jonas Mikkelsen, who also run Hotel Frederiksminde in Præstø. As a guest at the inn, you can therefore experience the same quality and care for nature. In the authentic and cosy surroundings, classic Danish dishes such as smørrebrød (open sandwiches), Wienerschnitzel and roasted whole plaice will get your mouth watering!

Common to the above restaurants is a passion for the raw materials and a professionalism in their use. It is possible to obtain some of the best ingredients from the many farms – both large and small – within the fantastic local area.
