There’s no interior decoration as such. It is the raw wooden furniture, the walls finished in a myriad of calming greys and the specially commissioned tableware that play the leading role. A role that the food, selected according to the produce available during the different Nordic seasons, of course shares and shines in.

Whether it is summer or winter, Höst offers a fixed three-course menu that you can combine with the standard wine menu or pair with the upgraded selection of wines. There is also a small à la carte menu to choose from.

Höst has already won three international design awards, including the award for the World’s Best-Designed Restaurant at the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards. David Kester, a director at the publishing house, Thames & Hudson, was a member of the judging panel and gave this reason why Höst was a deserving winner.

“Restaurant Höst has brought a bit of rural Scandinavia into urban Copenhagen ... It gives a real sense of what it is to be Danish.”
