It was a warm evening, and I sat outside (under the tent, fortunately, since it rained a bit), facing the fountain and the Graabrødre Kloster on the opposite side.

Thanks Mark and Malene for a fabulous night on Jan 16th. Compliments to the chef and staff, the food, wine and service were second to none, best steak we’ve eaten in a long time! If you’re in Odense, then this is the place to eat, whether lunch, a quiet evening meal or a special occasion.

Have gone here a couple of times for a drinking dessert and its great. Friendly and helpful staff, great offers of beer and wines, and the own mixing of drinks makes it personal and nice. A must visit during a night out!
