I use and recommend qpdfview. It is built with Qt but can be configured
to use GTK themes and play nicely with Xfce with:
https://packages.debian.org/sid/qt5-style-plugins
and setting QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2 in my environment.

The default desktop launcher uses "qpdfview --unique", which is annoying
if you want separate instances rather than one application with tabs, so
I added a custom launcher in ~/.local/share/applications without this flag.

Kind regards,
