If you are on the Faroes then book your holiday around a restaurant booking here, it is that good. That's what we did and what an experience it was. From the very start you just know it's going to be special. The scenery is amazing...More

Our second visit, but first in the new venue, and boy has the dining experience moved on here - it was fantastic before, but now it is truly out of this world. After spending several weeks in the Faroes, it is really clear how KOKS...More

From psychic vertigo to epicurean giddiness, Koks is a startling revelation in the Faroese food landscape. A few years ago Faroese food was not fit to feed strangers. Who would have thought that the Faroes would become the epicurean destination of Europe. Each Faroese households...More

We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience- and an experience it is. Using the car rental to arrive allows you to enjoy the scenic route to the restaurant, and heightens the anticipation. You are met and ushered into the fermentation shack, and offered beer or juice...More

The website is confusing, but it's not that complicated. You can either drive and leave your car in a small car park, or get a taxi from wherever you're staying. Once you're at the car park you walk a few metres downhill to... More
