Lunch in Restaurant Egede
Our lunch and dinner menu, served in the historic houses, allow for the unique opportunity to enjoy exquisite food in the 18th century home of Poul Egede (1708-1789, son of Hans Egede), which has been painstakingly restored. The restaurant is placed beautifully in the small town of Ilimanaq and is one of Greenland's absolute best.
We offer a lunch platter with local specialities, whilst our á la carte dinner menu is composed mainly of fresh Greenlandic produce, prepared by high-level professional chefs.
We strive for the best and most authentic taste of Greenland. The restaurant building has been restored by Real Dania with respect for the historical legacy interwoven with the place. Amongst other things, the ceiling is made of sail fabric, as was common in the 18th century. The historic spirit of this place, together with the view of whales frollicking around in the Disko Bay, will make for an unforgettable evening.
It is indeed difficult to imagine a more impressive location for an exclusive meal.
In case you need to get to Ilimanaq from Ilulissat, it is possible to book our 30-minute shuttle from Ilulissat at a surcharge. The shuttle sails several times daily. One can for example take the 15:00 or 17:00 shuttle and return with the 20:30 departure. The shuttle tour from Ilulissat weaves its way through the huge icebergs, just outside of the area belonging to the UNESCO World Heritage. The stranded icebergs are by themselves a huge attraction.
