Six Michelin Star Restaurants in Copenhagen

There’s no shortage of excellent food in Copenhagen, whether you’re in the mood for a New Nordic plate, a traditional Danish dish or an excellent kebab. If you’re after something with a little pep in its step, try out one of the many Michelin star restaurants in the city.

Michelin stars are awarded by the French company Michelin as part of their yearly Guide Michelin, which selects hotels and restaurants for special distinction. There are a range of restaurants with stars in Copenhagen, including a rare three-star rating (Geranium).

Here are the best Michelin star restaurants in Copenhagen:


The only restaurant in Copenhagen with three stars, Geranium is the height of luxury eating in the city. Speaking of height, their location on the 8th floor in a building in Fælledparkem offers an incredible view of the city that highlights the seasonal aspect of the menu.

Focusing on the produce from the Danish island of Bornholm (where they have another location), Kadeau is New Nordic in its truest sense – seasonal, local, and extremely stylish. Their interior and service are as clean and beautifully made as the food.

Kiin Kiin

One of the few Thai restaurants outside of Thailand to be awarded a Michelin star, Kiin Kiin takes a modern and elegant approach to the Thai kitchen. The fact that it’s located in the northern Copenhagen neighborhood of Nørrebro gives it a local vibe that you don’t usually get at such an upscale joint.

Overgaden Neden Vandet 33B
1414 København K

Opening Hours:
Mon – Sat (Lunch) 12:00 – 4:30 pm
Mon – Sat (Dinner) 6:00 pm – midnight



Opened by former Relæ and noma alum Chef Kristian Baumann in 2016 to wide acclaim. With a laid-back menu and friendly atmosphere, this is a great spot for a special occasion or a spur-of-the-moment walk-in (the bar seats and a communal table are kept open)!. If you don’t have time for a meal, check out their attached cafe for a coffee and pastry in the morning, or a glass of wine at night.

Considered noma’s little sister, Relæ took the concept of artist New Nordic and made it slightly more accessible, with a casual but luxe interior and tasty, beautiful food that will leave you sated. Head Chef Christian Puglisi has become a well-known name around Copenhagen and the food world; he left noma to open Relæ, and has since opened popular spots Manfreds (vegetable-based), Bæst (all organic Italian), Mirabelle (cafe) and Rudo (vermouth bar and restaurant).
