Reserving a table at the highly awarded restaurant in the Danish capital can prove to be a challenge as Noma, blending the words Nordic and ‘mad’ (which means food in Danish), again is awarded top 3 Best Restaurants in the World of 2015. This is our best advice on how you can get a table!
Restaurant Magazine has announced The Worlds 50 Best Restaurants with Noma as the 3. best restaurant in the world in 2015. Last years position: 1 / Years on list: 8
The verdict: “A world-conquering Scandinavian restaurant that knows its place”
“It has been something of a whirlwind 12 months for René Redzepi and the team from Noma. As well as reclaiming the number one spot in the 2014 edition of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, Redzepi upped sticks and moved Noma to Japan for a hugely over-subscribed five-week pop-up earlier this year that received wild critical acclaim.
Now back on Danish soil, the Noma team has been re-energised by its experience in the Land of the Rising Sun, where indigenous ingredients such as raw botan ebi shrimp and wild duck were served to Tokyo diners with dramatic effect.
Now they have turned their attention to Redzepi’s beloved Nordic terroir once again. Dishes are in step with the seasons, such as milk curd and the first garlic of 2015; and the first green shoots of spring with a scallop marinade. And it sees Redzepi doing what he does best: playing with techniques such as fermenting and pickling for creations beyond most people’s eating perceptions.
Noma’s ability to remain fresh and to assimilate culinary cultures other than its own demonstrates not just the immense skill of Redzepi and his team, but also the global importance of Noma. It remains among the most influential restaurants of this century.”
There are quite a few that knows what an extraordinary culinary experience this top restaurant in Copenhagen offer. But reserving a table at the highly awarded restaurant in the Danish capital can prove to be a challenge…
Noma reservations advice updated for Summer and Autumn 2016
Noma is completely fully booked until the end of June this year. If you do want a table, ad yourself to the waiting list.
For reservations beyond June 2016, Noma will open booking according to the following schedule (date and time to be added to your calendar with notification!):
On Monday the 28th of March 2016 at 10:00 a.m. (CET), Noma begin accepting table reservations for the month of July 2016.
Make a booking or ad yourself to the waiting list by Noma’s Online booking As the Noma team is in Australia they do not take reservations via phone – online booking only.
Waiting List: If your desired date is unavailable, we encourage you to enter your name on the online waiting list (via the same online booking system) for the dates that would be convenient. Tables often become available as the date nears, when some guests need to cancel their bookings. Noma also offer guests a place on shared table, created in case a larger table becomes available.
If you don’t succeed in booking a table at Noma you might want to consider Carl Meyer‘s (founder and co-owner of Noma) new Restaurant Radio, with a much more affordable entry into Copenhagen’s conceptual dining scene. Another tip is booking for lunch rather than dinner, which could be less competitive.
