We enjoyed a delicious menu at 'The Red Box': They have a limited food list with 4 options for starters, 4 options for main courses and 1 dessert. All those options revolve around a delicious blend between western and eastern cuisine. Guests can choose a 2 or 3 course meal. You start of with 2 tasty appetizers filled with different... More

Small resturant in a nice part of CPH. So make a reservation. Very nice food and people. They are strong in picking right wine for the meal. This resturant is value for money. "We'll be back"!

I'm in the restaurant business, owning parts of 21 mostly upscale restaurants on the east coast in the US. I've got to say that The Red Box was one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten in. This is a Chinese-inspired French restaurant. I enjoyed tastes I'd never had before. I started with the 5 piece appetizer, had the fish... More

A nice blend of Chinese and French kitchen in a small, cozy environment very centrally located. The service is excellent although we had to wait for the main course a tad too long. I'm every other aspect a perfect place to wine and dine.

Came for dinner at TA recommendation. We were two and took the tasting menu of 15 small dishes. Some were good,some average,a few not so great. But the TIME was insane! For a menu that has fixed dishes,in the exact known order, to wait 15-20 minutes between servings is unacceptable! It took us more than 2 hours to finish, 90%... More

This was a bit unusual evening for me since I went for dinner alone. The place is welcoming, no loud music with is a clear plus for me. Service was excellent: attentive but not intrusive. I ordered the 5 dish China starter which was quite good but not perfect. Then came the duck: the sauce and the potato ball was... More

One of my favorite meals ever. Superb blending of French and Chinese styles. Few choices on the menu, but each is prepared with attention and grace by the small staff in this intimate gem.

My wife and I were at this restaurant last evening. The 3 or 4 small appetizer courses before the main course were truly wonderful. Then my wife had lamb chops and I had the duck. The lamb was slightly over cooked, very small thin chops, my duck was very good. This restaurant is very small and gets very noisy and... More

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.
