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

Well worth finding, this restaurant was charming, food was delicious, and the serving team looked after us very well. They spoke English very well, as does almost everyone in Denmark, so there was no language barrier. They were very busy,,which is always a good sign!

In the narrow street of Vintapperstraede this small Parisian restaurant is a good choice for lovers of good, simple food and a warm welcoming atmosphere.

It's just one of those places with charming interior, a menu card that offers more than 'just' the regular burgers and sandwiches. The kitchen is inspirede from the French cuisine with a touch of Danish dishes and it works brilliantly. Brunch and evening are the highlights. Lunch is good, but if you are out sightseeing in Odense, there are other... More

An all- round well- run low- key restaurant in the centre of Odense, in what probably can be called the “Eating Street”. Friendly staff, pleasant interior though often crowded (and when you have been there you understand why). Good balance between price asked and quality offered. Dining out in Denmark has never been cheap, but for this country the prices... More
