Welcome to KOKS, a 2 star Michelin restaurant that is normally located in Faroe Islands. In 2022 and 2023 KOKS was relocated to the remote village of Iliminaq, Greenland. Tucked away in the pristine Arctic landscape, KOKS stands as a culinary gem that offers a one-of-a-kind gastronomic journey that transcends the boundaries of conventional dining experiences.
Concept & Location
Perched on the western coast of Greenland, in the picturesque village of Iliminaq, KOKS offers an awe-inspiring setting that complements the breathtaking natural beauty of the Arctic region. The restaurant is designed to blend harmoniously with its surroundings, featuring rustic charm and sustainable materials that evoke a sense of connection with the local environment.
To reach the restaurant you travel by boat from Ilulissat to Iliminaq, on the way you pass by icebergs that come from the UNESCO World Heritage Ilulissat Icefjord and if you’re lucky you might see a whale or two.
From the moment guests arrive, they are greeted by warm, genuine hospitality that is deeply rooted in the Greenlandic tradition. The intimate setting, complete with wooden accents and panoramic views of the fjords and icebergs, sets the stage for an unforgettable dining experience.
You can stay the night in beautiful bungalows which overlooks the oceans and icebergs and then will also have the chance to enjoy a KOKS breakfast.
KOKS takes great pride in showcasing the unique flavors of Greenland’s pristine wilderness and its ancient culinary heritage.
Led by visionary Chef Poul Andrias Ziska, the culinary team at KOKS employs a farm-to-table approach, utilizing locally sourced and foraged ingredients to create a menu that reflects this part of the world.
At the heart of KOKS’ cuisine lies a celebration of traditional Greenlandic ingredients, expertly combined with modern and traditional culinary techniques to create dishes that are both visually striking and palate-pleasing. From succulent Arctic seafood, such as Greenland halibut and lumpfish caviar, to reindeer, musk ox, and herbs foraged from the surrounding area, each dish at KOKS tells a story of the Arctic and especially Greenland.
Complementing the culinary journey at KOKS is an expertly curated selection of beverages, including a range of handpicked wines or non-alcoholic beverages that beautifully harmonize with the flavors of each course.
