The food was very good: herrings with different sauces, many types of cheese, eggs, pate, salad, etc.. and beer and wine no limit. When we were there, there was also a huge family group deeply engaged in singing and chanting... read more

Despite all tables were booked out and we could get one just for 1 hour we were happy being their: excellent informal atmosphere (it was Friday evening pre-Christmas and there were a lot of families with kids), great selection of meat and good buffet with salads, for ab. 150 Kr it was just wonderful!

This is a great restaurant if you want to try all of the traditional Danish dishes. Affordable and tasty. But keep in mind that it is buffet style so the dishes are not always fresh.

eat as much as you want/carvery set up. Lots of lovely bread, salads, meet off the bone. We were cycling across Demark, so healthy sized portions were very important to us! FYI cycling in Odense very very good

Went there with a friend. The food was hot and tasted good. It's a very Danish style of Restaurant so it may not be too everyone's taste but worth a try. The young waiter was very helpful and friendly. His English was good. Only a small complaint please supply white bread not everyone likes Rye bread.

This is not a gourmet restaurant but the quality of the food was fine. We were two couples with an infant baby and the restaurant was very accomodating in finding us a table where we would not disturb the other patrons. The food was tasty and reasonably priced.

The "fairytale buffet" was a perfect dinner for the whole family at a very nice price. A large selection of courses, and you can choose your own meat, such as ham, veal, turkey, lamb, beef and mix as you please.
