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. I'm a big fan of their dailies, especially the "black pot", which is a long-cooked dish... read more

This place has some delicious salads at a very affordable price. You can feel the freshness through the crisp salad and the tasty vegetables. Had a salmon salad which was super tasty. Wouldn't hesitate to come by for lunch again some day.

They have just the one vegetarian disk, a burger with mayonaise, Heinz, sallad, onions and cornichons. Tasted great. Not that many vegan/vegetarian places in Odense, so had to make do with ordinary restaurants.

Olivia has become a must when we are in Odense. They promise food, which is made of fresh ingredients, and ask you to look through with serving. This last point may well delete. Okay we should even bestow the subsequent glass. But what. The food quality, the price of food and wine is relatively very low. It was our 3... More

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.
