KOKS in Torshavn, Faroe Islands, retains Michelin star

Restaurant KOKS, which was awarded the Faroe Islands’ first Michelin star in 2017, has retained its star. Chef Poul Andrias Ziska and sommelier, Karin Visth, were in attendance at a gala in Copenhagen last night when the announcement was made.

“We’ve absolutely delighted to have retained our Michelin star,” says chef Poul Andrias Ziska.

KOKS has moved from its home in Kirkjubøur for the last two years to a new location in Leynvatn. This relocation created a sense of fretfulness in the KOKS camp prior to the announcement, as they felt this might have had a negative effect on being awarded a star.

“We are more relieved than anything, really,” says Poul Andrias. “We were excited to see if the relocation meant that we might lose the star, but we are overjoyed to have retained it.”

Being awarded a Michelin star resulted in heightened interest and more reservations in 2017. KOKS hopes the retention can have a similar effect on the restaurant this year. The team’s main focus in 2018 will be to settle into their new environment in an old eighteenth-century farmhouse in the remote valley of Leynavatn. KOKS will re-open in April.
