Danish restaurant Noma has regained its crown as the world's best restaurant after being knocked off its perch last year by a Spanish rival.

The two Michelin star restaurant in Copenhagen was toppled in The World's 50 Best Restaurants Awards in 2013 after three consecutive years at the top by El Celler de Can Roca, a Spanish family restaurant, but has now had its title restored.

The 45-seat restaurant in a dockside warehouse, which is headed by chef René Redzepi, is famous for its focus on reinvented, seasonal Nordic cuisine.

Mr Redzepi said: "We didn't expect it at all, we thought we had had our moment on this list. I know that for the team, this is the biggest moment."

The UK's highest entry in the list was Heston Blumenthal's Dinner in London, which moved up two places to the fifth spot.

Organised annually by Restaurant Magazine, The World's 50 Best Restaurant Awards are voted for by over 900 industry experts.
