We had dinner here primarily because we had read that it served the best duck in Copenhagen. One of us ordered the duck and was told it was prepared the traditional Danish way which was baked. It was very good, but not memorable. the wait staff (only female from what we saw) were warm and professional. What stood out from... More

Like previous reviewer, we too, a group of 10 booked a table a month or so in advance. OK, our table was big enough, round and we were fine with its location. Same water issue here, first several bottles of outrageously overpriced bottled water before miraculously regular tap water in clear bottles started appearing on our table (tap water is... More

You would think that if one book a table more than one month prior to the visit and ask for a table close to the window you would get such a table... But instead we got a table squeezed in with view in the wall for one of us and when we asked to change the waiter went quite unfriendly.... More

We had heard about this restaurant and found it worth the effort to track it down. Good food at a reasonable price. Luckily for us we ate early and were able to get a seat. I recommend making reservations if you are eating later in the evening. At 5pm the restaurant was already almost full. By the time we left... More

Close to a tourist trap but always pulls it off as the staff is extremely friendly even when the stress is high! Nothing exiting on the menu but executed in a safe and nice way. Pricelevel average or slightly above. Nice location.

We were recommended this restaurant by a younger couple and, despite the youthful vigour of the place we felt very comfortable. The mostly female staff buzz around with energy and are very friendly. The system of drawing attention for service involves switching on the small green light above the table and works efficiently to summon help. The food was delicious.... More

I've been in Copenhagen on business for a little over a week and I've now eaten here twice for dinner. I had the wild duck one night and the deer filet last nigh; both were excellent. It was crowded last night (Saturday) but when we went last Sunday it was not. The service was very good both times. Every restaurant... More

We had lunch today at this restaurant. The reception and service was very friendly. We liked the informal atmosphere and serene ambience. The food was superb...Danish open sandwiches. I thought the herring and the sauce was the best I ever had. My wife had roast beef and loved it Felt great!

I revisited Peder Oxe with a new team of 8 people and I must say it was not the same good experience at I had for a while ago. The restaurant was crowded and it was almost impossible for the people to take their seats, as the tables were placed very close to the neighbor table. It was also very... More

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.
