Maybe I over-expected with Noma, but I felt a little underwhelmed. The place is beautiful, the service was great and very informed, and some of the dishes must take literally hours to prepare in full and are presented (on the whole) beautifully. However, of the 24 plates I ate, only 5 really made me think 'WOW'. These were the sea urchin toast, the Reindeer moss, the wild duck & pear, the frozen cod liver with caramelised milk, and the sloe berry with brown cheese dessert.
Some dishes I felt were not of a 1 star level, let alone from the best restaurant in the world. The dried carrot in ash with sorrel was awful.
Jacob, our main server, was fantastic, and they gave us a kitchen tour after the meal which was a nice touch.
The experience is great, but to me, why go to all that effort on the food if the taste doesnt blow you away? Very, very good, but not number 1 on earth - sorry Noma!
