Picture this: alfresco dining on Lake Estrum. Not only that, but you're actually on the grounds of the royal summer residence of the queen. In the 18th century, this site was the royal boathouse. Part of the experience of dining at this restaurant is the path you'll use to reach it -- a long promenade lined with trees originally laid out as one of the decorative avenues associated with Fredensborg Slot. Today this much-altered boathouse is a well-respected restaurant where cuisine manages to combine elements of the best of Danish and French traditions. The cooks here have experience and an expert sense of precise, clear flavors. Menu items we continue to enjoy include breast of chicken stewed with young vegetables and summer cabbage; fried mackerel with spinach, apples, olives, and lemon-thyme sauce; and a dessert specialty of stewed rhubarb with sugared biscuits.
