Peder Oxe: A Family Restaurant in Copenhagen

For the steak lover who appreciates homestyle cooking, Peder Oxe is the perfect mix of Danish and French all nestled in Scandinavian country-style decor.


If you’re looking for a great family restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen, Peder Oxe is an affordable option serving Danish homestyle cooking. The concept is simple - various meat dishes, a hearty salad bar, should you choose and large portions. Crowded tables, a warm fire and plenty of smiles, set the tone as waitresses scurry around delivering orders. This is a simple restaurant, perfect to gather with a group of friends, or just relax with your family.

For dinner we ordered the sirloin steak, cooked at a perfect medium rare and the salad bar. Our steak was tender, juicy and the light sauce of white wine and tarragon was the perfect touch!  Alongside our steak we dug into a baked potato with sautéed kale,tomatoes, haricots verts and shallots, all of which were great.


Even if you’re not interested in a big piece of meat, the salad bar is simple, yet fresh and very appetizing. You can choose from a variety of lettuce, vegetables, and dressings. Dinner at Peder Oxe was hearty, satisfying and great for cold evening.

Peder Oxe is also open for lunch and is known for their huge variety of freshly made 'smørrebrød', open sandwiches. The menu is adjusted on what's seasonal and fresh and a full wine list is available.
