Ever since the world famous Noma opened its doors in 2010, the spotlight has been firmly on Copenhagen as a diner’s delight. With Noma temporarily closed as it undergoes relocation, we think that Restaurant AOC is one to watch. With two Michelin stars, it’s located in central Copenhagen in the vaulted cellars of a 17th century mansion house.
The restaurant’s ethos is to provide the ultimate sensory experience stimulating your sight, smell, sound and taste. Using seasonal Nordic produce you can indulge in either four, seven or ten course menus.
