It may seem a little strange to think about, but have you ever wondered what it would be like to dine in the woods? No, we don’t mean sitting around a campfire with hot dogs on sticks, we mean actually sitting down in a quality restaurant and having a nice meal as you are surrounded by nature. Of course, you haven’t, it’s an incredibly strange thought, it’s something that not many people at all would think about when they imagine eating in the woods.
To be fair, that is completely rational, the woods is not really meant to have quality dining service. It’s usually more about fun, camping, exploring, or survival in general. People generally imagine eating bugs in the forest before they imagine a restaurant into one. Which of course makes absolute sense, it’s just common knowledge that the woods are not a place to be eating sophisticated food in air conditioning.
Anyway, we bring up this incredibly strange idea to let you know, that this is in fact not an idea, but a reality. Dinning in the woods is something that many people in the world have done, and it is something that a lot of people have been doing for a very long time. This is just a practice that a lot of people haven’t done as a of late, it makes more sense to just have a meal close by, downtown maybe, rather miles away in the woods where there isn’t any comfortable shelter.
Today, we are going to be talking about some of this most interesting establishments and see if any of them are worth the effort to visit. We certainly believe that a lot of the places we are going to talk about are adequate to say the least, we would even go so far as to say that they are some for the best restaurants in the world. Each one of these remarkable establishments all have their own charm, they each have something amazing about them, unique to them that separates them from the rest, even though they are all placed in the same natural setting.
Hopefully we are able to convince you that some of these restaurants are worth the visit if you are ever in the area to go. They are a lot of fun to hang out at the very least since they are in the very neck of the woods and there is a lot to see from the majority of their incredibly large windows. Most of these restaurant hired an arborist expert witness to make sure they were not damaging the trees or enviroment around them. Hopefully, if at the very least you don’t want to visit any of them, you can come away with his with a bit of newer education, and hopefully a lot of fun learning experience.
We are not going to go in any particular order with this list and analysis, we are just going to be going in a random consecutive line till we run out of them, this way, you can realize that none of these incredibly restaurants are not above any of the others. Thank you very much for joining us today and thank you very much for taking some time out of your very busy schedule to come and read this, without further delay, this is a conveniently compiled list and analysis of all the best restaurants in the world that are in the woods.
Domaine des Entangs
Let’s start this list off with the country that loves food more than any other country in the world, probably the entire universe, France. France has had a history of food that is completely unrivaled by any other in the world, so it would only make sense that we started this off with them, as they are of course the example that everyone else should follow. We have quite a bit to talk about with this first restaurant, so we will be trying to get through this one quickly for time’s sake, we do of course want to give every restaurant a fair amount of time to show itself off.
This is a restaurant that is all about pristine condition and homey sophistication, it’s surrounded by homey woodlands, and being contained in a 11th century chateau it has an infinite amount of space for it to make guests comfortable, and for the staff to have a comfortable amount of room to work around in. Because this is a chateau of a restaurant located in the woods, and because it is one of the best, it has one incredibly important quality.
That incredibly important quality is its fantastical element. There are lanterns scattered around, blankets, a giant fire pit, and a constant whimsical feeling about the place that makes it an incredible place to visit. It is obvious from first seeing this restaurant, it has the ambiance completely down, they have the feeling that stays with its guests for a while, and it is an incredible feeling of serenity and joy as they enjoy their food.
Speaking of their food, there dishes are amazing, they have the freshest ingredients, the best spices, and an amazing flavor to enjoy as they enjoy the scenery. The ingredients that they use come from locally grown seasoned ingredients, the fruit, the veggies are from there garden, and their crayfish is from the Moulde River. Guests can even go and forage for their own ingredients that they can find in the forest, which is a novelty in and of itself.
Pure Food Camp
The next one that we are going to talk about is a little place in Sweden, which is an amazing successor to the one we just talked about. This is a great place to visit for a multitude of reasons, there is a lot of things that we are also going to bring up that is not necessarily related to the forest or to the food but is incredibly important to the restaurant itself. All of it is incredibly fascinating, and all of it is incredibly amazing to hear about, especially if you ever get the chance to visit it yourself.
The restaurant is helmed by Sweden’s very own Titti Qvarnstrom, who is the first female Michelin-starred chef, which is an incredible accomplishment on her part. Pure Food Camp guides, all of them being incredibly nice and informative on their positions and they are incredibly helpful when it comes to the food and their service. They actually help you quite a bit as they go through their guest’s culinary journey’s as they explore Sweden’s Scanian Forest.
This is not an event though that takes only a few hours, not even one day, but multiple, it lasts a few days, to say the least, guests are going to be able to savor not only their food with this experience, but the adventure that they will embark on.
This restaurant is also a very hand’s on one, which seems strange to the majority of restaurant on goers, but of course this is not one of the most average places to eat. The guests will be expected to go out and forage for there food and then bring it back to be cooked over a fire pit with Qvarnstrom, making it a very fun experience.
Guests will also be visiting a farm and a castle, both incredibly historic, and incredibly fun to learn about as you enjoy some professionally made meals by a master chef. This is an amazing restaurant to visit, and it is incredibly memorable at the very least. So, no matter what you do when decide to go and visit this incredible place, you will very likely have a good time.
Hoshinoya’s Dutch Oven Dinner
We of course had to add this one to the list, it’s one of my personal favorites and it is in general one of the best restaurants to visit, regardless if it’s in the woods or not. There is an absolute phenomenal number of things to like about this incredible establishment. Located in Japan, and more specifically in a canopy in a mountainside forest that faces mount Fuji.
The incredible location makes it one of the most incredible restaurants ever to go to, the view alone is worth the trip to go and eat there. Every guest gets a heated blanket, and they all surround a campfire, all of which is angled towards the incredible views that they give. the comfort that these arrangements are incredible, the feeling of the heated blankets, as you watch mount Fuji under the stars feels like a dream and the incredible food that they serve there is just spectacular.
Speaking of the food, the food that is served at this restaurant is a French inspired one. There are four courses, seasonal of course, such as wild boar, risotto, and roasted potatoes, and served with some savory wine. You do also have to work a little bit for this meal, not to worry though, this is not a very hard thing to do for this restaurant. The most you’ll have to do is flip a stake or cook some things in a Dutch oven, as is the name of the restaurant.
This one is actually a close second favorite for me, even though I’ve never actually been there, but I plan on making a trip incredibly soon, this just sounds so fascinating to go and experience. Hopefully this also sounds intriguing to you as well, and hopefully it’s something that will also help convince you to take a trip to Japan if you are not already there.
One & Only Nyungwe House
The last one on our list is one that is incredibly fascinating, and it is also located in one of the most beautiful places in Africa. Located in Africa specifically, it sits in Rwanda, which is in a tea plantation, which of course borders the Nyungwe Forest. This forest is one of the oldest ones in the Africa and probably in the world. The forest is a mystical, almost ethereal place to study as you eat.
The restaurant is located above the treetops and lit with gentle candlelight, and the food is created and served by a professional chef who always tries and succeeds to deliver the absolute the best dishes that he possibly can. He serves a daily meal that consists of lamb with confit potatoes and duck, which is of course caramelized and includes fresh ingredients.
It is a truly wonderful place to visit if you ever get the chance because it makes you feel like you’re in a movie. You can explore the nature surrounding you with your eyes as you try some absolutely delicious food, and enjoy the relaxing patio that they sit you down in. I hope that one day I’ll be able to visit it myself, and hopefully we were able to convince you to hopefully take a trip out there and to see for yourself if the nature and the food are worth it.
Thank you very much for taking time out of your incredibly busy schedule, it does mean quite a bit for us to know that you were able to find out exactly what you needed based on your interest in restaurants in the woods. Hopefully if you are not able to take the trip out to any of these restaurants, which is of course understandable, then at least you learned about them. Hopefully you do in fact get to go and take the trip yourself though. We talked about four of the greatest restaurants that are located in the woods and we really appreciate the fact that you took some time to come by and learn about them.
They are all incredibly special and hopefully you won’t have any trouble visiting them if you do in fact get to go. Of the four that we presented hopefully they were able to help you, and hopefully it helped you decide on which continent that you want to go to. Thank you again for taking the time to come by and read through this, this was of course the best restaurants in the world that are located in the woods.
