Description: You will find Peder Oxe at Graabroedretorv, in the heart of old town Copenhagen. The restaurant serves the very best beef from free range cattle and you will also find fresh fish, shellfish, lamb and game on the menu. At lunchtime the Danish classic ‘smorrebrod’ (open faced sandwich) is served and here the guests have the possibility of choosing exactly the pieces of smørrebrød they desire. The menu is adjusted according to the changing seasons.

“Good food”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

We dined here on a busy friday evening, although they found us a table even though we hadn't reserved in advance. We both had three courses and found the food to be well prepared and we particularly enjoyed the chocolate mousse cake which with the addition of the grapefruit was quite unusual but tasted very good. Service was friendly but a bit hit and miss as one main was served and then we had to ask about the other, but that didn't spoil the evening.

“Good food! Fast service”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Ok. We wanted a little Danish food and found this spot! Geared to us tourist and fast service. Limited menu choices which helps speed the service. Salad bar was limited in selection and is an added priced item but was worth it!

You will have to click the button on the light to get their attention but doing so resulted in immediate attention.

We went elsewhere for desert. But there are many choices here, just wanted to experience more locations.

This would be a second or third choice for revisit on future trips.

My venison was perfect!

“Favorite spot in Copenhagen”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

I've been going there every time I pass through Copenhagen for over a decade! I love this place.

My favorite table is near the six foot high square walk in fireplace.

The fish and game meats are all delicious

“As good as they say!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We just had dinner at Peder Oxe and I must say, we were not disappointed in anything! The service is wonderful... young girls who are friendly and helpful and very professional. This place is very French in design and menu. Our beef was done to perfection; the baked potato was the best I have ever had; the vegetables fresh and crisp; and the sauces for both the potato an beef were fabulous. We had a beer before dinner and sampled the cask wine with dinner because we have never seen this offered before. A mild wine but fine with all of the wonderful tastes of the meal. Go there... you will love it!

“Tourist Restaurant”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

The big and cozy restaurant is located nicely. The food was not a highlight but ok. I disliked that you had to pay for extra bread and butter. In my opinion a restaurant with such prices should provide it for free. The service was stressed and therefore not that friendly. All in all, compared to other restaurants in Copenhagen I think its overpriced and you there are many better ones in the same price category.

Dear Sainainu
