Best Restaurants in Copenhagen

Copenhagen's most well known restaurant is of course Noma, often voted number one restaurant in the world, the food is amazing and getting in is almost impossible. With Noma set to close its doors at the end of 2016, dining at this legendary restaurant will probably be out of reach for most people. But Noma has had a big impact on Copenhagen's restaurant scene, with many ex-Noma chefs going out on their own and setting a really high standard of modern European cooking. Bror, Radio and Amass are three examples, all great restaurants and places we'd happily visit on a trip to Copenhagen.
