“Always good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We were visiting Odense to see if things had changed in the last 50 years since my wife lived here when she was 6-10. Her sad was overseeing building tankers for Chevron. DGK was great back then and still is. We had the best meal of all of our time in Denmark. Service was great. Prices were deffinately more than we usually spend but was actually reasonable for Denmark. The next time we go to Denmark we'll eat here. Hopefully sooner than. 50 years.

“Simply superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Really great food and service.
Try the traditional Danish meal, with herring of all styles, plus fish, plus steak, plus cheese, then you will not need to eat for a week. The quality is excellent and the inn restaurant is very very nice inside. Try the meal with Danish beer and , or snaps.

It is also situated near to the old town, a great place to walk and browse around.

“Simply Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This place located on a small side street just off the centre of Odense is a little gem. The food is excellent - fabulous if you want to try Danish cuisine - and the service is outstandingly professional. Even when busy with several big parties, they have time for a couple sat in the corner :-)

We opted for several dishes of the seasonal menu - and the waiter asked several times if we needed a break in between dishes, something I have never experienced in other places, whether needed or not. The prices are very reasonable for the standards and we'd definitely come back if in Odense again!

The surroundings are great, as we were sat in the closed courtyard, loved the oldy-worldy atmosphere, and although there was a small drunken. loud party in another corner, teh acoustics meant we were never bothered by the noise.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

To leave a Restaurant feeling overwhelmed by the quality of the food and the service is a very rare experience and one I look forward to experiencing again if I am ever fortunate to return here.
Den gamle Kro is not to be missed, in fact it is a must if you are in Odense.
