Michelin stjerner 2023. Billede viser en ret på tallerken

All Denmark represented

The Danish restaurants were honored with a total of 43 Michelin stars when the award ceremony took place on June 12, 2023.

The stars are spread across the country, and Funen is now also represented with a Michelin-starred restaurant.

Unfortunately, there were also a couple of restaurants that lost their stars, Kiin Kiin and Kokkeriet – both located in Copenhagen.

On the map below you can see the star-spangled restaurants. Greenland is not on the map, but don’t miss the link to the Michelin-starred restaurant Koks.

Michelin guide - an exciting history

There’s a whimsical, exciting and global story behind the creation of the Michelin Guide. It’s certainly not a waste of time to read the fine Michelin story.

Michelin Criteria

The number of Michelin stars are awarded according to the following scale:

1 star: A great restaurant in its category
2 stars: Really great kitchen that’s worth the detour
3 stars: Extraordinary cuisine worth travelling for

And the criteria they are judged on are:

Quality of ingredients
The craft – flavour & cooking
Personality – how well the chef has managed to find their own expression
Value for money
Quality no matter the time – it must be the same experience no matter when the guest eats at the restaurant
