I used TripAdvisor to Find a restaurant naar my hotel and made a reservation at The Red Box. And I didn't realise i was in for a very nice surprise. The appearance from the street is a bit misleading as it looks like a narrow street cafe. But once the menu is served, the experience shifts completely. Wonderful tastes and... More

Went here with some old friends for a relaxing evening out. The venue had been recommended by a friend and we were all curious to see what was coming to us. A warm welcome by the owner who explained the concept. We went for the set menu. Hereafter we had a constant flow of wonderful Asian inspired dishes with a... More

The Red Box was a really pleasant surprise. I'm normally not the into Chinese food, which made this even a better surprise. The food is modern Chinese, and much lighter and simple in taste than regular Chinese. I would recommend the 5 small dishes for starters. Lots of seafood. For the main course I had the duck confit with a... More

We absolutely loved the food at the Red Box. It is fusion food (Asian and French) and I thought that it was very creative and delicious. The flavours are right on. The portions are on the small side, so beware if you are really hungry or have a big appetite. The atmosphere is really nice as well, and the service... More

We enjoyed a delicious menu at 'The Red Box': They have a limited food list with 4 options for starters, 4 options for main courses and 1 dessert. All those options revolve around a delicious blend between western and eastern cuisine. Guests can choose a 2 or 3 course meal. You start of with 2 tasty appetizers filled with different... More

Small resturant in a nice part of CPH. So make a reservation. Very nice food and people. They are strong in picking right wine for the meal. This resturant is value for money. "We'll be back"!

I'm in the restaurant business, owning parts of 21 mostly upscale restaurants on the east coast in the US. I've got to say that The Red Box was one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten in. This is a Chinese-inspired French restaurant. I enjoyed tastes I'd never had before. I started with the 5 piece appetizer, had the fish... More

A nice blend of Chinese and French kitchen in a small, cozy environment very centrally located. The service is excellent although we had to wait for the main course a tad too long. I'm every other aspect a perfect place to wine and dine.

Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
