KOKS at Ilimanaq Lodge – 2-star Michelin Restaurant

Inspiration / Places to visit / KOKS at Ilimanaq Lodge – 2-star Michelin Restaurant

Exciting things are happening in Greenland. An example is that our customers can look forward to an incredible culinary experience during the summer seasons of 2022 and 2023. In July 2022, KOKS received two Michelin stars!

Restaurant Koks, usually housed in the Faroe Islands, where they have been awarded two Michelin stars, moves to Ilimanaq Lodge during the coming two summers. This means you will not only have the opportunity to stay beautifully but also have a heavenly meal. Since the news of the restaurant came out, demand has been great, even though the booking system was not yet up and running.

As we have several wonderful package tours that go to Ilimanaq Lodge, Greenland Travel has the opportunity to offer tours that include a tasting menu from Restaurant KOKS. The style and quality will be at Michelin level but in a more informal atmosphere – and with a far better view. And in July 2022, KOKS was again awarded two Michelin stars at their new location.

Overnight Stays with an Exquisite Dinner

Since we opened Ilimanaq Lodge with our subsidiary World of Greenland in 2017, we have served food from Greenlandic ingredients prepared with a stylish new Nordic twist at Restaurant Egede, as Ilimanaq Lodge’s restaurant is called. It is located in one of the oldest listed buildings in Greenland.

Guests staying in one of the 15 bungalows at Ilimanaq Lodge will get breakfast and a KOKS tasting menu. It is also possible to buy lunch on-site or get a packed lunch to go if you are going on an excursion. It is usually only possible to stay overnight for one night at Ilimanaq Lodge, but we can offer stays of 1, 2, or 3 nights with our package tours. However, the tasting menu from KOKS will only be served on one of the nights, while a three-course meal is served menu on the other nights).

We are confident that the collaboration between our subsidiary World of Greenland, our sister company Hotel Arctic, and Restaurant KOKS – under the leadership of KOKS’s award-winning chef Poul Andrias Ziska – will ensure that Greenland will reach new gastronomic heights. This will further prove that Greenland is one of the very special destinations on the world map.

The Menu

The KOKS Restaurant at Ilimanaq Lodge can only accommodate 30 people, and the demand is great. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee seats for guests not staying in our lodge.

Restaurant KOKS will be open between June 12 and September 8, 2022, and will serve a tasting menu, for which it is possible to buy a customized wine or juice pairing. However, as Restaurant KOKS opens in a small village far up in the Arctic, things that are self-evident elsewhere do not always apply here. Therefore, it will not be possible to order a vegetarian or vegan tasting menu in Ilimanaq, as the supply of vegetables needed cannot be guaranteed.


KOKS tasting menu: EUR 285

Wine pairing: EUR 220

Juice pairing: EUR 110
