The original garden of the house in the 1700s had both an octagonal gazebo and an orangery. The form and content of these two buildings have been combined in a modern orangery in 2017, designed by "Rønnow Arkitekter", Laust Ovesen. Read more about the history of Bakkehuset or the romantic garden.
The modern, octagonal orangery at Bakkehuset serves as a restaurant during the summer season. Here, culinary experiences are offered in the form of delicate open sandwiches, cakes, wine, liqueur, coffee and tea, inspired by history though interpreted for modern taste buds.
In the Orangery restaurant, the emphasis is on the craft of cooking, fresh and seasonal produce. We are pleased to be able to offer you the very best. The Orangery smørrebrød, traditional Danish openfaced sandwiches, are developed by our chefs, Allan Haunstrup and Fie Berlin, the wine is delivered by Rosforth & Rosforth, and our beer is from local brewery, Frederiksberg Brewery. Akvavit (snaps) and fruit juice, derived from old recipes, are also on offer. In cooperation with Risteriet,(a special coffee supplier) we offer coffee, made with time and respect for the selected coffee bean. The Rahbeks’ were known for the tea they offered their guests and the Orangery offers five great teas, supplied by Sing Tea House. Furthermore we have an excellent selection of deserts all made from scratch by our skilled chef, Fie Berlin, and all inspired by Danish culinary history.
