Restaurant Koks currently resides in the amazing historic Kirkjubour. A place where the views are just simply superb! The dining experience at Koks is a fantastic journey for your taste buds ( salted cod & blue mussel, monkfish and elderberry, rutabaga and gooseberry - all firm favourites) culminating with outstanding deserts (I could eat the dulse and blueberries all day...

Finding your way to Kirksjabour is an adventure in itself and what translates onto Ziska's plates manages to capture something of the landscape as promised; a curious tastebud tapestry of sheepy-seaweed-grassiness. Having hiked over the mountain on a previous day, we took the 5v bus from Torshavn that winds down tiny village roads shrouded in mist, revealing the unassuming but... More

By far the most excellent restaurant in Faroe Islands. The food is - well - experimental. The atmosphere solemn

I travelled to the Faroe Islands to celebrate my even birthday with my family of 3 generations, 7 people, mostly as I had read about the scenic Faroe Islands and its exceptional food, and I have to say that it was most assuredly worth the journey! (Incidentally, while Koks was very recently awarded its first Michelin star, "worth the journey"... More

Koks is a unique experience. It is really like nothing else and something special. The view is just amazing and the set up of the restaurant really cozy. You just feel so peaceful and you know you are living a moment that is rare and might not happen again. We have chosen the menu with Juices pairing. Pairing was just... More

It was only after I had booked that I realised the restaurant had moved from the hotel to a tiny village on the coast. A huge picture window looks out over a number of islands and there was the usual mix of clouds, sun and water as the sun went down, everything fading to black except the lights of villages... More

The meal, the drinks, the atmosphere etc is simply worth traveling for. If you ever find yourself on the Faroe Islands, visit KOKS.

We decided to try this place based on lots of complements and reviews. Despite being not a fan of western food we found this restaurant is excellent and full of art of gastronomy and preparation using local ingredients. The 16 food courses on its testing menu include superb lamb, cod, and halibut and blended with local vegetables like seed weed,... More

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.
