Expert review of Restaurant AOC
AOC's romantic location, down in an old mansion's vaulted celllar, competes with an exciting and original sensory experience on your plate to make this one of Copenhagen’s outstanding dining experiences.
Like Noma, the food blends traditional Scandinavian techniques such as pickling or preserving with ash but with a light, modern sensibility that borrows from classic French cuisine. Chef Rasmus Grønbech marries these techniques to top-notch ingredients that he obsessively sources. With a top notch (champion) somellier, as you'd expect, the wine list (strong on Spanish wines in particular) matches the food’s high standards.
Dishes change with the seasons but examples of the treats in store include hay ash pickled mackerel wtih green tomatoes or veal ‘slightly frozen’ with egg yolk cream and roe. For a real bargain try the lunch menu.
The bright, white space with wooden flooring and spare decor is pretty typical of Copenhagen's restaurant stylings. It is atmospheric though and makes an intimate setting for a romantic dinner or special occasion.
As polished as the food and wine here, you're in safe hands.
The location, below a historic manor house, is central and romantic.
Four courses cost 600 krone up to 850 krone for seven courses. The wine pairing menu (costing the same again) is a good way to sample the best of both the food and the wine.
