The Faroe Islands are well-known for their excellent food being based on local produce, such as fish, lamb, seafood, birds and herbs. There are many restaurants serving food that meet every taste.

One of these great restaurants is the KOKS, winner of “The Nordic Prize” for the best restaurant in the Nordic countries. KOKS successfully prevailed against other noted places like the Esperanto in Stockholm or Marchal in Copenhagen.

Mr. Johannes Jensen, owner of KOKS, was very proud of the award:

To be among the selected few who have already won this prominent award – mainly two-star Michelin restaurants – is absolutely amazing. Since KOKS opened in 2011, we have had multiple nominations and top ranking spots, but this is the greatest honour we have received. It is great to be recognised, but more importantly, this confirms that Faroese food and the Faroese food industry are widely regarded internationally – a true ‘reason-to-go’.
