One of the few restaurants we found open over the Easter weekend so we could not be too fussy - but what a gem! Excellent meal of foie gras, duck breast with pumpkin puree, spring greens, potatos and a truffle sauce and rounded off with crepe Suzette and coffee and washed down with a very decent bottle of New Zealand...

This building is one of the oldest in Odense and it is absolutely stunning. The food was very good and the service was spectacular. You must not miss this amazing place!

I have eaten at this restaurant several times during the last 35 years. And it always surprises me. Fantastic open sandwiches, kind and efficient service and fairytale surroundings! This is a place where you can travel 100 years back in time - and enjoy traditional Danish food when it is best. Do not miss this place!

Just order the smoerrebroed (the open-faced sandwiches) at lunch--you can't go wrong. The dinners are very good too.

Went there last week for my husband's birthday dinner using a gift voucher from a friend. I was so excited because I always wanted to eat in this old, charming looking restaurant. The voucher was for 3 course meal, starter, main course and desserts. The starter was salmon with rosmarine, which was okay, and the dessert was chocolate cake with... More

This restaurant dates from 1683 and is located in a beautiful half timbered house right in the centre of Odense. The setting and atmosphere reflects its history, lovely old period furniture, paintings etc., and professional polished service. The have their own take on a Kir Royal, Cava with raspberry syrup, which makes a nice aperitif. Their set menus change with... More

One of the best meals at one of the best restaurants in town. Highly recommended for the food and atmosphere. It is not cheap, but it is unforgettable. Go and you will not regret it.

The Old Inn (Den Gamle Kro) serves nice food in a very cosy dinning room. The prices are fair and the staff is friendly and service minded. Really nice place.

Excellent lunch plate with delicious herring, salmon, plaice and pork filet with creamy mushrooms. Nothing to complain, nice cosy atmosphere in very old house.

The setting and ambience, both outside visually and inside were top-notch – good décor, comfortable, not noisy, but enjoyable and you did not feel alone. Seating was easy with tables that can extend and allow for larger parties than the three of us there that night. The food was excellent, good natural flavours, delicate reductions and the meat cooked to... More
