Going against the grain of other reviews but our experience of Formel B was very average.

The food was competent with some very interesting combinations, such as halibut and raspberries, but nothing that was outstanding.

On the service side, again competent and lacking in warmth.

The wine list was lengthy yet almost entirely French and with a paltry number of just three reds and three whites by the glass which was a challenge when the style of food is to order three or four different small dishes to make up the meal.

Overall, it was a shame that the restaurant didn't meet our expectations and, for this part of Copenhagen, Miekke & Hurtigka would be our recommendation.

Thank Michael B

Last night in Copenhagen & we thought we would treat ourselves to a night out at one of the 'top' restaurants in the city. However for all the money, the night was not that special. Food was ok, service was efficient, but we never got to know our waiter, as the wait staff keep rotating. We could see the kitchen, and unfortunately one of the waiters having a quick secret bite to eat! The wines by the glass were average quality, and I would have been happy to pay more for better quality. We had eaten in much nicer and cheaper restaurants on the two nights prior. My suggestion would be to go somewhere else.

Recommended by the staff at Nimb and we were not disappointed. It was fun trying all the different specials which were varied and well presented. Comfortable seating with not too much distracting noise.

One of my favorite restaurants in Copenhagen. Consistently delightful cooking, French/nordic classics with an inventive twist but not trying to be creative just to be different.

Highly recommended for business dinners, special occasions or if you just like excellent food and wine.
