Here we explore the best flavors of the Faroe Islands’ capital city of Torshavn. In this episode, David visits the three best restaurants in the capital: Aarstova, Koks and Etika. Our first stop is Aarstova. Situated in one of the oldest houses in Torshavn (dating back to the 1600’s), this unique restaurant specializes in rustic Faroese cuisine.
Using local ingredients and family-style serving, Aarstova plays off the antiquated atmosphere of the house giving its guests a truly memorable dining experience. If you love shellfish, fish or lamb (their signature braised lamb leg dish is amazing!), then a visit to this idyllic Torshavn restaurant is a must!

The Faroe Islands are known across the world for their incredible seafood. The Faroe Islands’ capital city of Torshavn is (surprisingly) home to only one sushi restaurant, Etika. Etika takes the Islands’ ocean specialties and crafts them into some of the world’s most delicious sushi creations.
With such fresh ingredients including some of the world’s best salmon at their fingertips, Etika is able to produce delicious arrangements with standards and quality that compete with the best Japanese restaurants. If you are a sushi lover looking to sample some of the freshest sushi in the world, dining at Etika is an absolute must!
And we saved the best for last, Koks Restaurant. A contemporary, fusion restaurant perched on a hill overlooking the small capital, Koks serves up traditional Faroese cuisine with a Michelin Star-worthy twist. Each selection on the menu has been infused with native ingredients and flavors, giving guests an exclusive taste of what the Faroe Islands have to offer.
