By a pure accident I and my wife waled into this restaurant while travelling through Copenhagen recently. What a delightful surprise that was. Billed as serving French-Oriental cuisine is a curiosity. The meal started with an extremely professional waiter brought us a warm moist towel to clean hands and face. He then asked us what language we wished to talk.... More

If you don't know the place you probably would pass it. So it became famous because of very good food, very friendly service and a good selection of wines. We ate the 15 courses dinner, don't worry: it is extremely well balanced and lots of different tastes. Top ingredients, served at a good pace: all you wish for to have... More

The Red Box is one of my favorite restaurants in Copenhagen. The food is excellent and also the service. It´s worth tasting the TASTING MENU ”DE 15” and you can also have a 3 course menu for DKK 329

We had the five Chinese fish starter, which was amazing! The service was excellent and we were given a couple of free tasters before the meal which were also lovely. Fantastic dessert, earl grey tea ice-cream and two other small desserts. Would definitely like to eat there again!

And, what a great decision - it's still amazing and I enjoyed a wonderful 3 courses of Asian/Danish food -... More

We dropped into this place because of its ratings on Trip Advisor. Even though it was Friday night and we didn't have a reservation they managed to squeeze us in. I had the set menu. Chinese 5 flavours for the appetizer and the grilled hake for the main course. The food was sublime. It isn't cheap but in Copenhagen what... More
