Each element of the food is perfectly prepared combining asian... More

We were lucky to visit this wonderful restaurant during a very busy August weekend and found both excellent service and very interesting high quality food with a small yet well organized wine list. The set menus are great and the staff and decor wonderful. This is a very good choice in a city full of great restaurants- if you like... More

Tasty food + unique menu + beautiful restaurant + lovely service + excellent value = go to The Red Box. Easily my favorite dining destination during my visit to Copenhagen. A night out at a nice restaurant can be pricey here, but The Red Box manages to offer an exciting menu with all the fine-dining trappings at a perfectly moderate... More

I read about this restaurant and booked a table for my birthday. What an experience! The waiters/owners elevated the amazing food (french/Japanese) with a service I have yet to see done better. Can only say: Go Go Go! You wont regret it!

Not having made advance reservations at the end of our cruise, we were able to get a table with a one day advance email notice. The restaurant was intimate and had many local guests. The dishes were a wonderful combination of Continental and Asian cuisine. The duck, in particular, was quite good. The service was excellent, with the owner/lead chef... More

Walking round, not knowing where to have diner and just where I parked my car this small restaurant called the red box. Beautiful food. Great service and wines. No outside sitting but the explosions in your mouth are just incredible. Place you have to do in this town.

We spent great night at this warm but stylish restaurant. The wine and food was great. The waiter recommend for me white fish (Asian recipe) and white wine which was excellent combination. Also my wife said that the food was great and especially the desert was her favorite. Great food with reasonable price, easy to recommend.

With a small and unprepossessing street front, I'd walked past without noticing it a number of times. I only noticed it after a TripAdvisor search and made a booking. The menu is real Asian-something fusion (fused so well that I couldn't tell) with very creative (and tasty) small dishes. The "Five of China" starter is worth choosing and serves as... More
