Minimalist Nordic architecture is the setting for this Michelin restaurant. We had the tasting menu which was excellent and in particular the lobster was a highlight. Well worth trying although like most things in Copenhagen it does not come cheap.

Excellent restaurant that fully deserve its star. Good service, super food - innovative and tasty. The concept of small size dishes at reasonable prizes is attractive. Top value for money.

We were very much looking forward to our meal at Formel B, and there were some high and medium points. We were seated at our table quickly upon arrival, and while the decor was what I can only describe as minimalist (mostly brown colours), there was a good ambiance. Like other reviewers we did a double take at the wine... More

This was an excellent experience . A great tasting menu . Outstanding if expensive wine list. A real highlight was the blueberry dessert - probably the best desert I have ever eaten - my husband and I were totally amazed at the intense complexity of flavour! Worth the walk out from town and well worthy of the michelin rating

Amazing food and surroundings, and worth a visit when i Copenhagen if you are in need of gourmet and nice wine :) It is a must to try out the buckthorn en surprise, this is so good for every dessert-lover and has this amazing combination of sweet and sour, that makes it the perfect ending when eating lots of food.

Quite a dining experience with some of the finest food preparation I have ever experienced. The sweetbreads-to die for (before you die from). Perhaps the best sweetbread dish I have ever had. The other dishes match from starters to mains and deserts. Three courses easily can set you back $200+ with a quarter share of a cheaper bottle of wine... More

Michelin * so there were some expectations; the restaurant is a bit from the real city centre but looks very nice - danish design... Appetizers looked & tasted great; we had the surprise menu, and all dishes were presented very nice, would have loved some more fresh 'greens' in the dishes... Unfortunately wine-pairing in Denmark is very expensive; at almost... More

Staying in Frederiksberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
