Out of the Box:)

Love Formel B's nonconforming ways as in dining hours and menu. They close at 12 and they also do 9.30pm dinner reservations. Perfect for tourists like us who usually have many places to see during the day:) For the menu they have around 20 cold and hot dishes ala carte instead of pre-set Tasting... read more

Very warm and effective staff. Food is excellent although portions are small. Very extensive list of wine. The setting is modern and trendy.

This place is great but not the greatest Michelin star restaurant I have visited but needless to say the choice was lovely. We both chose different courses for our tasting menu my favourite being the steak tartare with nasturtium leaves and my partners was the monk fish. All dishes were wonderful and although we had the minimum that they suggested... More

The concept is simply. Small – but not to small – servings making it possible to define a multi course menu. The food is simply perfect, and do yourself the favour, and order one more course than you expect to be able to eat. If not you will simply regret it!

We were welcomed by nice and attentive staff, and after recommendation decided on four courses each (to save room for dessert). Opposite to other similar restaurants Formel B has a rather big menu where you can choose your courses - we found this very convenient. The food was delicious and very well presented. We were both very full after four... More

Incredible food and service, if you can afford 600-1000DKK then it's quite a cheap way to enjoy a michelin starred restaurant and some of the best Danish food you can find.

This restaurant offered enough juxtapositions of flavors and textures to feel very modern but it didn't seem to be as self-consciously challenging diners' concept of food that way other dishes at other restaurants did. We ordered the following: cod ceviche, beef tataki, smoked salmon, Danish prawns, pigeon, Iberico pork, strawberries, and the signature dessert, sea buckthorn en surprise. Now this... More

For our first night in Copenhagen, Formel B was an outstanding introduction to Scandinavian cuisine and style. From the warm welcome to the outstandingly attentive and friendly staff, service was impeccable. The restaurant itself was attractive but casual and it seemed like most of the crowd was local. Creating our own tasting menus was only difficult insofar as every dish... More
