Perfect yet again

Returned to Formel B, and yet again it was a GREAT experince from the new set menu to the excellent wire parring, and the second to none service this is THE best upscale value in Copenhagen.

Loved this place. This is an overdue review as we visited this place a few years back i think in 2011-12 maybe... but I can still remember it so that must be a good sign. The food doesn't look much but after a few courses you definitely feel full but in a good way. It was also very tasty. It's... More

As a part of a weekend with my boyfriend we had snacks and champag e, 4 cources with wine and tea and sweets. We spend approx. 3 hours in heaven, fantastic food really different but still something that every one can eat, wonderful wines and exceptional service from the staff. For a romantic evening with that special someone, I would... More

Lovely restaurant which we have fond memories of:)) Restaurant was responsive when we were trying to make a reservation. The menu spread was decent and we got to try almost every dish that appealed to us. Each dish managed to surprise us (and our tastebuds) :)) Service was friendly enough and pace of dishes was good too. I wish we... More

Formel B is a solid, classically inspired fine dining restaurant just out of the centre of Copenhagen. You are encouraged to order 4 or more dishes, which is a nice way to explore a menu in depth. The dishes were high in flavour, well-cooked and a special mention should go to the terrific wine list, where we discovered a beautiful... More

Me and my partner ate here last week, we had a number of different dishes. Most of the dishes were delicious accept some elements were off. The witch dish (flat fish) was underseasoned bland and drowned in cheap wroe. The pork dish had a pork fat crisp that was very unpleasant, it was also bland and lacked salt. i presume... More

Formel B delivered perfectly on out visit. Loved the consept of choosing 4-6 smaller dishes, and being able to taste a lot of different flavours! The service was perfect; present, but discret, never pushy. The food was amazing, excellent, beautifully plated and well explained from our nice and attentive waiter. We can only recommend Formel B as a great place... More

Formula B has had a Michelin star for more than 10 years, providing a classical French cuisine (based on the best Danish ingredients available). Despite a change to a more relaxed (and less expensive) concept, the restaurant, well-deserved, retained its star. Not a the very top end of the Copenhagen Michelin One Star restaurants, in my assessment, but a very... More

We went on a Saturday in the midst of a busy evening session.The food sounded intriguing and 4 of 6 dishes were really good. Highly recommend four options: the halibut, cockles and Jerusalem artichoke; the langoustine a la nage; the bleek roe and smoked eel and the roasted turbot with veal tails. All of those were memorable, the cerviche and... More

Staying in Frederiksberg

Neighborhood Profile
Frederiksberg
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
