Before the meal we were brought warm napkins and also small tasters. Every dish was neatly presented and the staff knew every detail. I can highly recommend The Red... More

By chance my boyfriend and I went to The Red Box and we can't stop raving about it. The food was outstanding, the staff were incredibly helpful, knowledgable and I loved that they introduced each course like it were a guest at the table. The selection of 5 starter was a delight, my boyfriend was in love with the tiger... More

I took my girlfriend here for a birthday meal. The restaurant was very nice, and ideal for couples. The service was impeccable and the staff were very attentive, informed and polite. We had the tasting menu which was around 430dkk (£43) a head and worth the money. Very nice, definitely would recommend.

I did not know the place, but was invited by friends. Even before the starters we got two small "tasters", that made me think: This is going to be a good meal." We all started with "Five From China" - five small starters, which again tasted really good. With the starters we had a nice Riesling. Then three of us... More

This place is unpretentious but still classy and serious about their food and service. They did not hesitate to suggest gluten and dairy free options, and all courses were really tasty. Kind and attentive waiters, we would definitely go back.

In my opinion, this restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Copenhagen. They food they serve is absolutely delicious - creative, but not extravagant. Choose the menu they present on the board outside the door, and you are sure to be in for a treat. I love the earl grey icecream.

This small little restaurant totally wow me. Tripadvisor rating is really reliable! Was missing asian food after being away from home for 3 weeks. It's hard to find delicious asian food in Europe. Totally happy with this fusion french & asian cuisine. Best meal I have in CPH.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
