If you have never visited a Michelin restaurant before you might be impressed, but this restaurant does not meet the level of other 1-starred Michelin restaurants. The service was not as attentive as you expect for a Michelin restaurant, and the presentations were quick and disinterested. The food was good but not flavless and the atmosphere in general quite hectic.

Was here with some colleagues and we all agree that the food was great. There is otherwise little to say about the venue and experience. Compared to other Michelin starred restaurant which in a way serves an unique and special total experience, Formel B felt more like a normal restaurant - so to speak. You choose 4 to 6 seperate...

The Formel K restaurant has been in operation for many years. A few years they changed their concept quite dramatically. They are offering a number of small courses at the same price: DKK 130 per course which is a bargain. They also offer some very interesting wines by the glass also at reasonable prices. I have four of these courses,... More

You cant go wrong at Formel B, a Michelin starred restaurant with fair prices ( Dkk 130 a course )and great food. The restaurant is stylish and yet casual and located in the Frederiskberg area of Copenhagen. Do NOT miss the Turbot and braised veal tails in parsley and garlic sauce. Also the Sea buckthorn en surprise dessert is absolute... More

Formel B still serves food of Michelin Star quality even though it was converted to a more relaxed brasserie style som years ago. The combination of some of the best food available in Copenhagen with a relaxed low-key atmosphere is second to none. You compose you own menu from approximately 25 dishes. Be sure to try the Turbot its out... More

We were really looking forward to our dinner at this highly acclaimed restaurant, and we were a bit disappointed. To begin with we were seated downstairs by the toilets, every time someone went I had the pleasure of seeing the inside!!! The service was average and given the price you pay I would have expected more. We ended up having... More

The food was absolutely fantastic, but the wines by the glass was a complete let down, we tried 2 of the 3 whites and 2 of the 3 reds, only 1 of the reds had anything to add to the food. Next time we will order a bottle instead, as the price of 4 glasses is about the same as... More

Having loved Soren K (a similar restaurant in Copenhagen) my wife and I were very much looking forward to Formel B. Unfortunately, we found it to be a horrible dining experience. The service was incredibly rude. We were made to feel like an inconvenience from the moment we arrived. We waited 5 minutes to be seated (or even greeted) even... More

Formel B was top in class as usual. Delicious, elegant, beautiful. Who else than Formel B can combine meat and fish? And serve dessert that balance sweet, sour and strong perfect! Only an empty water bottle had to wait 5 minutes to be refilled.
