2 Best Restaurants in Christianshavn, Copenhagen

noma

$$$$ Fodor's choice

Dark oak tables, wooden floors, and chairs with lamb-fur accents are a rustic interpretation of Nordic luxury that's appropriate to the setting—a former warehouse on the waterfront. This restaurant is at the vanguard of new Nordic cuisine and Denmark's most highly acclaimed. Chef Rene Redzepi and his innovative team pair the best local ingredients like berries, mushrooms, vegetables, and herbs with game, Jutland marsh lamb, Greenlandic musk ox, and Faroe Islands scallops. Dishes from the 20-course tasting menu can be served with wine pairings or a juice menu for an additional charge. Service is irreproachable. Given the hype, it's nearly impossible to book a table—reservations are taken a full three months in advance. So plan well ahead, and be prepared to settle for lunch instead of dinner. The chef plans to close noma after New Year's Eve 2016 and reopen it in 2017 as an urban farm-to-table restaurant in a new location.

Noma

$$$$ | Christianshavn

René Redzepi, one of the world’s most influential chefs, announced he would finally close Noma, widely considered to be one of the world’s best restaurants and the place that started the New Nordic food revolution, for good at the end of 2024. Noma had only reopened in a new location in 2018 after another shut-down (albeit a temporary one, which also garnered headlines around the world) and has since been awarded three Michelin stars yet again. It's almost impossible to get a table, but worth the try. It serves three menus every year: seafood in the winter, vegetables in the summer, and game in the fall.
