Villa Vest – Probably Denmark’s Best View

A few weeks ago I went to the beautiful town of Lønstrup in the very northern part of Jutland. The occasion was a visit to Kim Møller-Kjær and Michael Pedersen’s (Miv) relocation of their restaurant Glashuset. Well, Glashuset still exist but with a new owner, Kim and Miv have moved on to a new beautiful location with probably the most stunning view in Denmark: Villa Vest.

I’m not gonna write-up a long post about this dinner, the food that’s centralized around the best local produce was excellent and so was the wine.There are two different menus but note that it’s actually possible to have both. I’ll do that next time I’m in town!

This time I’ll just let photos speak. Served right here – please enjoy.

The beach in front of the restaurant Villa Vest

The view from the beach to the dining room

The snacks

The amuse bouche of cod, smoked salmon and fresh herbs and some crumble

2007 Alain Chavy, Pulighy-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatières.

Excellent, heavily mineral, powerful yet elegant. Loved it!

The starter of scallops, asparagus and many different herbs

2007 Amiot Guy et Fils, Chassagne-Montrachet Vielles Vignes.

Very nice but I preferred the acidity, minerality and power of the Folatières.

Excellent bread

The main course of langoustines and sole under a heavy cover of herbs and flowers.

Fresh, juicy and perfectly cooked. Very delicious.

2008 Alain Chavy, Pulighy-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles – This was even better than the Folatierès because it was more intense. Such a pleasure and I wish I could drink this kind of wine every once a week.

Say cheese…

This 2008 Nelson Neudorf, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc acompanied the cheese and did it well with the flowery fruitiness and a fine balance.

The delightful dessert offered Rhubarbs, panna cotta, pistacios and rhubarb soup – very fresh, sweet and delicious.


with sifon something on top that I don’t remember much of.

Once again, thanks guys for a great evening!

  • Trine, your photos are an endless source of joy and inspiration!

  • Trine,

    I think this is one new gem on the list of ‘romantic mixed with great food’ places where both my wife and I are looking after. The title + the 2nd picture (where we see the sea) had already convinced me. Then I looked at the photos of the food. Then the top wine choices. Now I am totally into it and Villa Vest will be very high on my list when I visit Europe. Thanks for your post.

  • Well there´s a familiar face….Glad you found Trine Maria…

    Lovely pictures of a beautiful part of Denmark and what looks like some very good food, Trine. Thanks for sharing.

  • Thank you Maria! Most kind 😀

  • Gorgeous photos. I haven’t been to those parts since summer 1993; think it might be time for a return!
