Restaurant Peder Oxe
The restaurant Peder Oxe is located on one of the oldest squares in Copenhagen, Gråbrødretorv, which was named after the first monastery to be built in Copenhagen in 1238. Entering the restored old building that houses Peder Oxe, you can feel the history of the area. Light, high-ceilinged rooms and earthy colours keep the place feeling rustic and friendly.
Staff graciously welcomes anyone, whether you are staying for a light lunch, a glass of wine, or a full-course dinner.Following the traditions of all good restaurants, Peder Oxe sources fresh local ingredients and creates classic dishes from around the world.
At lunch, try fresh fish bought at the nearby fish market (Peder Oxe's Lunch Plaice, butter-roasted with potatoes and lemons, 18.85 euros) or choose from a huge selection of mouthwatering open sandwiches; the beef tartar, the marquis with truffles, or the smoked eel. For a little extra, add the salad buffet and help yourself to a luxurious selection of vegetables--which was the first of its kind in Denmark! In the evening, Peder Oxe offers traditional classics such as succulent braised lamb shanks with ratatouille, or veal with a light truffle sauce. When it comes to drinks, Peder Oxe's philosophy is to actively search out exciting and delicious wines instead of choosing the most popular or the most expensive.
The restaurant is laid-back and friendly and welcomes couples, businesspeople, tourists and families.
The area of Gråbrødretorv, where Peder Oxe is located, is a very popular destination thanks to its restored historic buildings, greenery, and numerous other great cafes and restaurants. In summertime, much of the dining and coffee-drinking takes place on the street and a jazz festival livens up this charming square.
Reservations are not essential, but can be made online via their website.
