Very nice indeed!

We had a set 3 course menu, consisting of a salmon starter, meat main and a very nice dessert. Well prepared and presented dishes, good and friendly service and cosy surroundings. Well worth a visit!

I first visited den Gamle Kro approx 40 years ago when I lived in Denmark and over the years have visited many times more. This is the first time that I have been disappointed and hope it was only a blip. We were 2 couples celebrating a 49 year wedding anniversary and ordered the special January menu which appeared quite... More

We visited for lunch together with some freinds on one of their busiest days of the year when Odense have there Christmas Market. The traditional Danish lunch served was perfect and had some delicous variation in the traditional tastes. The waiter was top notch but warm and freindly. The inn its self is the true definition of the Danish "hygge"... More

We visit Odense every couple of years and simply must have one lunch at Den Gamle Kro. Book a table in the lofty room that used to be the courtyard, and enjoy a platter of standard Danish luncheon fare of the highest culinary standard.

We had reservations for dinner but came here quite early as my friend had to leave soon. The inside of the place is cosy and atmospheric.Its traditional Danish food and it was good. We had onion soup and... More

Having been turned away one night for not having made a reservation, I returned the next night duly planned. A worthwhile experience starting from the unbelievable 1683 dated sign board to the various awards. The most impressive dish was "Red Wine Marinated Mallard garnished with Salt baked Celery and Pumpkin Quince drizzled with Cranberry red wine glace and Pommes anna!... More

My wife and I ate dinner here with another couple attending a conference. We arrived at about 6:30 and even though we did not have a reservation this seemed to be an advantage as we were seated immediately and had an entire room to ourselves throughout our meal. Our waiter was very cordial and took the time to give us... More

I read a lot of good reviews of this place but I was not at all impressed. The wine list was horrible, not much to choose from at all. They did have a few interesting cocktails though. The food was just 'ok', it definitely did not live up to the hype. The restaurant itself is lovely, very historical and nicely... More
