“Good but not Michelin quality!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

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.

“Simply great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

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 courses rather than a predefined menu and pay for wine and drinks by the glass. This works well for businnes dinners, but I would think less for a special romantic dinner. It won't be an experience remembered for life.

The actual food was it itself nothing especially innovative or unique, simply really really well made. The service was professional and efficient, but otherwise not really noteworthy.

In conclusion, if you are looking for a once in a lifetime experience with innovative food like you have never seen before, I would suggest something like Geranium, but Formel B is amazing food for half the price.

“The best bargain of michelin starred food in Denmark.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

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, all excellent and interesting. If you manage to get a table: go there. Service was also very relaxed and pleasant.

“Guaranteed quality at casual Michelin restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

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 fantastic!!
