    Everything in Copenhagen is expensive and this restaurant is no exception. So with that out of the way, the food was great. Went their twice during an extended business trip and had the pan-fried sole the first time and a steak the second time. Both meals were simple but done perfectly. Atmosphere is typical “cozy” inside with a few outside cafe seats. Salad bar is very Danish, simple and fresh. Good location slightly off the beaten path. Service was great as well. The building has a lot of character as well.

    Read the reviews so decided to venture to this restaurant. Peder Oxe is located in a large open square (we sat outside) in late September. Service was very slow - we didn't initially mind, although would have been nice to have been told that starters would take 30 minutes to arrive. That evening they did have a large group booking - and it looks like this restaurant is geared to look after large parties/bus load of tourists (not for those who would like a romantic or fun evening with a few friends). We had dinner (the mushrooms for starters and mains picked cod - bad choice as small and overcooked - dry and sad). Big disappointment as the food was neither tasty nor generous - definitely the lowest value for money (i.e. a rip-off) I have experienced in my 30 years travelling to Copenhagen. Wish I could be more positive but not recommended. (P.S. If you are vegetarian do avoid even if they offer a salad bar that reminds me of the old Pizza Hut salad bars that are attacked by tourists).

    We had dinner at Peder Oxe after reading reviews. Although the menu selection is not large (you can chose the prix fixed option or individual plates) the food was very good. They have a lovely wine selection. Do not miss the assortment of sautéed mushrooms on bread as an appetizer, lobster bisque as a starter or the almond cake for dessert. I do want to mention the steak special I had with my prix fixe was not great. If you ask for medium rare here, it can still be a bit under-cooked but better to order under than over as they were happy to cook it a bit longer. However, the grade of meat was grisly and not tender. Our waitress graciously removed it from our tab. The restaurant has a charming, warm, old-world charm feel to it. The service is excellent and the ambience inviting. We will definitely be back next time in Copenhagen.

    We were a little bit in hurry for our lunch. But the service was excellent and we had the different fine dishes (14) in a fast time (ca. 10 minutes). In the meantime we had fine danish and belgium beers. This fast and friendly service will letus come back!

    Set on a large open square with colourful house fronts around a beautiful plane tree in the middle. Choice of a set menu of three courses (good value) or lots of other choices from the menu. We chose the burger which was a meal in itself and was delicious. Don't forget to pick up a postcard of the building which is bright and fun.

    We tried to eat here for our first lunch but sat outside and ended up eating at the restaurant next door instead! Then we went back for dinner to have some typical Scandinavian food but were told lunch is really the typical meal. The dinner was spectacular nonetheless. We licked the plates clean. The service was great and the ambiance lovely. I think we had the Sole, Carpaccio, and fried cod for starters. The desserts were equally amazing. Then we came back the next day for lunch (embarrassingly) to have the open faced sandwiches (SMØRREBRØD) , which did not disappoint. All were delicious. Everything we ate was delicious. It was a reasonably priced dinner given how much food we had with drinks and dessert. Highly recommend!

    This is a classic. It was the first nice restaurant I went to on my first trip to Copenhagen. I feel like I've missed something if I go to Copenhagen and don't go to Peder Oxe!! There are several rooms... one has a fireplace so large you can walk into it. During winter visits, I've seen our waitress walk into it to add logs to the fire in the corner. It's a special place with great atmosphere on my favorite square in Copenhagen. This trip I got the beef tartare called raw biff I think. It was very good although I prefer my meat to be chopped rather than ground so finely but in fairness that is the typical way to serve it in Scandinavia so it's not a complaint just an observation for anyone who prefers it one way or the other. I tasted the other dishes my family ordered and they were all great. Good suggestion on the wine and the bartender downstairs made great pre dinner drinks and suggested a few nearby bars for "curated cocktails".

    Truly beautiful food in a very pleasant atmosphere. Had the lobster soup for starters which was simply amazing. Followed by the venison for main, cooked two ways. Whilst Copenhagen is generally expensive for eating out, the quality of this meal more than offset the prices. I'd come back to Copenhagen again just to eat here!

    I was there with a friend, following the suggestion of our city guide. The place is very nice, with a wonderful location also in the outside, if summer. We tasted the lobster soup, the salmon (both starters) and the selection of cheeses. In the end the homemade danish dessert. Everything was great, very well presented and quite gourmet. The portions are not big, but with the help of bread and butter it was enough. Two glasses of home wine and water (to avoid... too expensive) We spent 550€, it means almost 80€ in total. I will suggest if you want a cool dinner with typical danish food.

    We tried this place based on the assumption that it could represent a good taste of Danish tradition with a contemporary approach. This is exactly what we got! We tried a fantastic lobster soup (probably my best ever), the Dover sole and the deer in a couple of preparations. Everything was extremely well done. Environment, atmosphere, decoration and service were at the level of the food: high. The size of the dishes was a bit scarse and prices, as expected, definitely high.

    This wonderful restaurant is always on my "to do list, when ever I come to Copenhagen for business or pleasure. I have had lunch and dinner at Peder Oxe countless times the last 20 years. It is consistently the same excellent food, served by a friendly staff, in the most cosy restaurants in Copenhagen. It is the perfect place to have traditional danish food.

    Having read an earlier review I telephoned in the morning and made reservation for that evening for 2 people at 7pm. Also in the light of the earlier review I asked for a table in a corner or by a window. The reservation taker said she "would do her best". We arrived promptly and were shown to a table for 2 in a crowded part of the restaurant, just around a corner and by a serving entrance. It was obvious that at that table alot of traffic would be passing by us and very close to us. We asked for another table, by a window or in a corner, and immediately and without fuss were shown to a very pleasant table for 4 (but separable into 2 tables for 2) by a window and out of the way. From then on all went smoothly, very attentive and helpful waitress and excellent food though my "local speciality" dessert was rather disappointing - 3 tiny biscuits in a sea of milky sauce. My husband had cheese and pronounced it good. For our main courses I had Dover sole and he had steak. We didn't have a starter. Prices about what we would expect to pay in a similar restaurant in London. Pleasant and calm atmosphere. I would revisit and/or recommend to friends.

    Loved this place. You get paper and pencil on which to make your selections and when you're ready to order, you turn on the little green light on the hanging lamp and the waitress comes over to take your order. If you order aquavit, she pours it perfectly so the pour ends at the lip of the glass but over the lip in the middle. Food was beautifully and freshly prepared, so there's about a 20 minute wait between smoerrebroede! Had the beef tartar, the shrimp and egg as well as the salmon. All excellent. Will go back the next time I'm there!

    You call the service by switching on a green light hanging down over your table, which makes the restaurant kind of unique. Food is great and would wish for outdoor seating. Overall good experience

    Having visited this place a few times I can confirm the high standards of food and service. Considering the high average prices of restaurant in Copenhagen, the 3 Smørrebrod (Danish sandwich side-up) deal for 150 Kr (roughly 20€) is very convenient. The staff is very kind and the different cute rooms make this place very authentic. I recommend a place close to the fireplace especially during the colder seasons.

    Meal was once again outstanding. It's located in a vintage building where staff wears traditional Danish attire. Attentive and friendly staff. Like almost all of Copenhagen, they all speak great English. Wife had Dover, daughter and I had the lobster. Both were wonderful. Good wine selection. I rate high as collectively we love this place as a traditional spot.

    The atmosphere and food is very nice, but I would recommend that the restaurant will do something about the acoustics. One cannot hear the person opposite yourself. So therefore I cannot recommend this restaurant at present.

    Nice bistro with a lot of hygge going on. Adding the salad bar on to your order is especially recommended - it's wonderful.
