I could very quickly run out of superlatives attempting to describe our meal experience at Noma! For me, it was quite simply the best meal I have ever eaten.
I don't intend to go through the meal course by course - there are enough earlier reviews that cover many of the dishes we ate - but wanted to say that the food had the quality of stimulating the appetite and then satisfying it, without that over-stuffed feeling that many top-class restaurant meals can provoke. If you like a lot of cream and sugar in your food you might be disappointed, but if you like intense flavours that are fresh and original, you'll be as delighted as I was. I really enjoyed that I couldn't quite guess how the first bite of any dish would taste. Some sounded bizzare to my ears but there were none that I didn't really enjoy eating (perhaps with the exception of the infamous live shrimp course - for me, the flavour got lost in the adrenalin/scary feel but it was certainly quite an experience!)
The service was outstanding - it really felt that staff tried their very best to tailor the experience to you and they were happy to adjust to suit you (for example - I didn't want the full wine pairing, but they gave me glasses of wine at the points I felt I wanted one.)
The meal is expensive by UK prices, but actually not too bad by local standards - I saw plenty of other places in Copenhagen where one could easily spend as much.
All in all, it was a fabulous experience that I would recommend to anyone else lucky enough to be able to secure a reservation.
