Description: THE RESTAURANT HAS CLOSED FOR THE SUMMER UNTIL AUGUST THIRSDAY 11: Welcome at The Red Box, a modern asian-french fusion restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen with a fashionable situation and a very warm and smiling atmosphere and service. The menus are based on a healty edition of the classic french bistro cuisine with a twist of South-East Asian spices and vegetables. The concept of The Red Box is similar to the best fusion restaurants in New York or San Francisco, reviewers tell us...Our courses are based on the most fresh vegetables, seafood, fish and meat at the market - some of them even organic - and we also are happy to serve you a vegetarian meal.

Probably one of the best meals we've ever had - we had the fifteen course tasting menu and it was outstanding in every way. The waitress was fantastic, explaining every single course and it's ingredients. The service was impeccable, the wine was lovely (hooray!).

It was a little quiet for a Saturday night so not much ambience and it certainly wasn't cheap, but we would go back.

“Recomending the red box”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Very smal restaurant, but clean with few but nice decoraions. The menu was build up by a range of smal disches. The disches look very nice and the taste was of top quality. The staff was very polite. And in a proffesonal way explain the disches as they where served. Would visit them again if we visit copenhagen again.

“Good quality food and great service”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We picked this restaurant for a special meal, and liked the idea of Asian Fusion food. The set menu looked fantastic - it's not a big menu, but I could honestly have ordered and enjoyed everything on that menu. However, we deciced to try the 15 course tasting menu. Some of these dishes were very good, some were OK, but I guess that's the risk that you run with a tasting menu. To be fair, all were very well exectuted and presented beautifully.

Wines were not cheap, but good quality.

Next time, I'd go back and have the set menu - but I would certainly go back.

“Quiet, romantic little place- a facade to great fusion food”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

By bringing me to this little place, the boyfriend just earned himself tonnes of brownie points. Seriously. We had the tasting menu, which meant a little everything, which came up to be A LOT. This is one of the first 'fine-dining' places I've been to where I actually overeat at the end of the evening :) Not that I'm complaining. It's not the cheapest place, but it definitely worth a visit. Service was great, and the lavatory was even well-stocked with supplies (like dental floss and even disposable toothbrushes!) so you'll never get embarrassed for your date. Very thoughtful :)
