We happened upon Restaurant Pilekroen and decided to give it a try. Their specialty is steak and we ordered the Colorado (good, not great) - also, the salad bar was wonderful. The staff was very helpful in assisting us with our selections - friendly, laid-back, local atmosphere. Recommend.

After a long walk around Frederiksberg Park and with a really tired daughter, we decided to get some warm at the place. We were warmly welcomed and shown a table. We were even allowed take our folded stroller inside. The place is nice and warm and the menu gives you a lot of options. We took the big lunch for... More

First impression when you go through the door: this could be a mistake. It looks a bit like an old pub, where only locals would hang in the bar. But don't be fooled. They know how to cook a good steak. The speciality is Colorado steaks. A large portion of tender meat, that you share among the table. Plenty og... More

We visit regularly and enjoy especially the salat bar. The feature Colorado Steak has recently been a bit dry and too well-done for my taste. But nice and cosy

Menu is in Danish but staff are very helpful. With no strong preference in mind we took the suggestion to try the crispy pork with parsley sauce, or 'Stegt flæsk med persillesovs', which is Denmark's official national dish. It was probably true to name and prepared exactly as it should be but wasn't really to our liking. That is not... More

The restaurant is not very big, but the space between tables is wide enough. The food is very good, the steak is well done and tasty, and the salad bar is excellent. Good selection of wine, not wide but selected. A place to have a nice relaxed dinner.

Good, old-fashioned Danish restaurant. Nice retro atmosphere. Good service. The 'Colorado steak' was excellent. OK salad buffet. Our vegetarian was less than enchanted with the omelette, which she pronounced 'boring'.

In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen.
