Crowned the best restaurant in the world four times in the last decade (by a panel of 800 chefs and critics) this tiny spot has become the icon of Danish cuisine.

Provocative head chef Rene Redzepi has made waves with his strict dogma of seemingly simple Nordic dishes made from seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients. Its El Bulli-like status draws VIPs, celebrities and consummate foodies from around the globe to dine in the converted 18th-century warehouse.

Expect anything from live shrimp with ants to ‘Hen and the Egg’ – a DIY dish where guests cook their own duck egg with spinach. A spectacular dining experience, not for the fainthearted.
