The 8 Best Restaurants in Copenhagen



Cuisine: Nordic

Style / Ambiance: Noma caused something of a stir when it was voted the World’s Best Restaurant in 2010.

Back then its signature Nordic cuisine was virtually unknown among food critics and gastronomes, and it seemed highly unlikely that a Danish restaurant could receive this prestigious award. Noma, however, fully deserved its title and has been pleasing diners since. Noma’s aim is to showcase the very best of Nordic food so guests can expect local delicacies beautifully presented by head chef Rene Redzepi. Everything about the restaurant is Danish, from the location in an old warehouse that once stored whale blubber to the prevalence of locally produced salts, pickles and vegetables; there are no sun-dried tomatoes or foie gras here.

Noma Copenhagen is temporarily closed but will reopen soon in a new location.
