Looking for the most delicious and mouth-watering bucket list in Denmark? This is it because Denmark is Scandinavia's gourmet food powerhouse with a total of 32 Michelin Stars and 25 star-studded restaurants to choose from. So cue the drool and dig in!
Even before Restaurant Alchemist opened in the summer of 2019, there was a lot of talk about chef Rasmus Munk and his holistic 50 course menu (yes, you read it right. 50 courses!). And it seems to have caught the attention of the Michelin judges as well, because Restaurant Alchemist was awarded with not one but two Michelin stars in its first year.
If you're looking for a Michelin restaurant that is down to earth, Restaurant Jordnær is the place to go because the name literally means 'down to earth'. The restaurant is located just 10 km north of Copenhagen, which makes this dining experience ideal to combine with a trip to the art museum Louisiana or a visit to Hamlet's castle, Kronborg.
If you have heard about the New Nordic cuisine, you've heard of restaurant noma. This restaurant is considered a lighthouse within the Scandinavian gourmet food scene and has been named the world's best restaurant four times! Noma has recently moved to a new location and reinvented its concept, but still managed to regain its two Michelin stars.
Winning their first Michelin Star in 2017, Noma protogee Kristian Baumann runs 108, a fantastic ultra-local (and affordable) restaurant just around the corner from its older sibling alongside the canal. If you can't get a reservation for dinner, stop by The Corner (still open), their cafe and wine bar next door, for fantastic snacks and drinks.
If you are looking for an intimate dining experience, this is it. Restaurant Clou is located in a former apartment in the homey neighbourhood of Østerbro in Copenhagen. The restaurant only serves 12-20 guests a night for a 20 set menu compared with excellent wines. However you'll be served by chefs themselves which adds the perfect personal touch to this dining experience.
If you find yourself craving gourmet Thai food while strolling through the streets of Copenhagen, then you better go ahead and book a table at Kiin Kiin. Not only has this restaurant had a Michelin star for over 10 consecutive years, Kiin Kiin is also the only Thai restaurant outside Thailand to have a Michelin star!
Ever wondered which of Copenhagen's restaurants that was the first to receive a Michelin star? Well, look no further because Kong Hans Kælder (Cellar) is the answer. This restaurant earned a star in 1983 and has kept its high standards ever since. Needless to say that Kong Hans Kælder is an institution in the Danish gourmet food scene.
Located in the historic and luxurious Hotel d'Angleterre in the heart of Copenhagen, Restaurant Marchal beautifully combines the Nordic and French classics while adding a modern twist. Tip: Marchal has a renowned weekend brunch that you should also check out if you have the time - and manage to get a table!
