Always a good experience

I've visited Olivia for lunch and dinner many times - and I keep coming back. With a narrow but very well structured menu that combines classic French dishes with a twist, cafe dishes and strong meat dishes.

With a narrow but very well structured menu that combines classic French dishes with a twist, cafe dishes and strong meat dishes. I'm a big fan of their dailies, especially the "black pot", which is a long-cooked dish with varied content.

With a limited menu they put a lot of effort into the dishes. High quality for a very reasonable price. Friendly and relaxed service. The wine list is too limited, but price range is very good.

I stopped here for dinner based on a recommendation from the First Grande Hotel. Upon entering I was kindly greeted and offered a table for one. After deciphering the English menu, I ordered some wine and a 3 course meal. I had the cauliflower soup, black pot, and cheese plate. I must say the soup was extraordinary and I'm so... More

If you visit Hans Christian Andersen House and get hungry so visit Olivia restaurant. They serve the best quality at an exceptionally low price. It is my favorite restaurant in Odense. There is an unpretentious mood. Serving is friendly, but has some flaws for a high class restaurent. > But if you want good food at a reasonable price, this... More

Awesome little place with a history. The food was very nice and the service was swift and the waiter had a welcoming smile all the time. I had my three kids with me and even though they were having a trouble deciding ... the waiter was very patient. I will go there again.

the food was really nice, but what a poor service. They do not pay attention to their clients. When we arrived we asked for something to drink at first, but we had to wait for 30 minutes to get something, and this happend a couple of times during our dinner.

I have dined at Olivia's 3 times now, and not once been disappointed. The food is an amazing experience! The carpaccio as a starter is fantastic, such great flavours put together. The stroganoff as a mains isn't a disappointment either. I have dined with several different people, and no one has ever been disappointed with their food. Clafoutis for dessert... More

First a little background, then the review: Odense is not Copenhagen. I have lived in Odense almost all my life and as much as I love the city, I have to say that I sometimes miss the international atmosphere of a metropolis, the diverse and authentic feeling of a restaurant visit with honest food that doesn't cater to just the...

The starter (soup) and desserts were good but the main course which really ought to be the star of the show lacked flavour and salt. I had braised shank and the sauce was very red winy and didn't seem to have any seasoning. Also we were 5 that ordered the same dish and it was served in one big heavy... More
