In the vaulted cellar of a 17th-century mansion, this intimate, two-starred Michelin standout thrills with evocative, often surprising Nordic flavour combinations, scents and textures. Here, sea scallops might conspire with fermented asparagus, while grilled cherries share the plate with smoked marrow and pigeon breast. AOC exclusively serves a tasting menu of ten-plus courses, and reservations should be made around a week in advance, especially for late-week dining.

The kitchen closes at 9pm.
