Faroe Islands: KOKS on Forbes’ list of 10 coolest restaurants in 2021

The Faroe Islands’ top restaurant, KOKS, has been recognised by Forbes as one of the coolest restaurants to visit in 2021. The list, composed for Forbes by professional foodies, is made up of ten restaurants that offer ‘deeply satisfying meals that are worth a visit whenever you can get there.’

Kristian Brask Thomsen, a culinary ambassador, award-winning filmmaker, world tour manager and host of dinner parties extraordinaire, chose 2-star Michelin KOKS, calling it a ‘culinary pearl’.

“KOKS is an almost mythological place in a hobbit setting,” says Kristian. “KOKS is not only trying to be or show sustainability but living it at its core. A vast majority of the produce is sourced within a few miles of the restaurant, in the surrounding hills and ocean.”

Karin Visth, sommelier at KOKS, says being included on Forbes’ list is a great recognition.

“It confirms that we are on the right track, particularly in a year like 2020 where the restaurant industry has been badly hit,” says Karin. “It motivates us to continue.”

The team at KOKS hope to open under normal conditions in March 2021 and remain open until the end of November. Table reservations for 2021 opened early in January.

“Based on bookings so far, we see a clear change in where our guests in 2021 will come from,” says Karin. “Usually, most of our guests come from Asia, Australia and the United States. At the moment, we are seeing bookings mainly from Faroe Islanders and other Nordic countries. We expect this trend to continue throughout 2021, with an increase in guests from other countries in 2022.”
