“We received our first Michelin star in 2017 and our second in 2019. Holding on to these stars is such wonderful recognition of our hard work,” said restaurant manager Karen Visth at yesterday’s online awards ceremony.
”Attending this event has been one of the annual highlights all the 18 years I have been in this industry. I always dreamed of being part of this Michelin family and being counted among these amazing restaurants. A big thank you on behalf of all our staff and our guests.”

Head chef Poul Andrias Ziska said he expected to retain the two stars.
“We had no indications that we would lose a star or gain a third, so we are happy with tonight’s outcome.”
