Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: At the heart of KOKS is the culinary coquetry of Poul Andrias Ziska. As KOKS' head chef he masters the artistry of distilling taste and smell from the Faroese landscape, combining them in exquisite dishes. The palate is local, uncompromisingly Faroese. The young avant-gardes at KOKS use Faroese produce, both coarse and fine, ancient and modern, always keeping an eye on sustainability, leaving the hills that bring forth the good fruit to flourish. Rather than chasing the novel for its own sake, every effort is put into exploring the ancient practices - drying, fermenting, salting and smoking. KOKS follows the seasons and what they bring forth, transforming ancient culinary tradition into modern delicacies. The simple and pure, what is fresh and traditional characterises KOKS.

“Exelent!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Expensive, but propably the best food experience I have had!
The menu was priced at around 800kr (about 120 euros), but the food was wourth far more!
The service was exelent, and the view was one of the best, in any resturant!

Go there, if you are in the Faroe Islands!

“Great dinner at Koks!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Just had dinner in Koks - a truly fab evening! Wonderful, imaginative food beautifully served by charming and well informed staff. Lovely relaxed atmosphere - so much better than Alinea in Chicago which was very dour and pretentious. Not exactly local for us - we live in the UK - but perhaps we will come back sometime.
