I was having brunch with my daugther on a quiet thursday morning and it was indeed very satisfying. Not particularly special but a god, solid experience with plenty and varied food, freshly pressed orange juice and good coffee. The coffee was ad libitum but I never got to the refill because there was more than enough in the first pot.... More

Atmosphere was really nice, location is very central, staff was friendly and professional- but most of all: the food was really good! I can strongly recommend this place. I will eat here again next time I will eat dinner in Odense

Nothing too fancy or original, but Olivia delivers in terms of quality, atmosphere, location. Definitely worth visiting for a brunch, lunch, dinner, even breakfast.

Lovely bistro in the centre of Odense. French style menu and reasonable prices. A good dining option in central Odense

This is a charming restaurant located in an alley with some other restaurants! My colleague and I both ordered the three-course dinner, consisting of a starter, an entree, and a dessert. (You can make the three courses whatever you want, though.) The food was high quality and delicious! (We both had steak, which comes with a sauce and a side.)... More

Pretty good food. Not over the top dough. A bit average service. Much space for improvements. Overall satisfied and would come again.

This place has some delicious salads at a very affordable price. You can feel the freshness through the crisp salad and the tasty vegetables. Had a salmon salad which was super tasty. Wouldn't hesitate to come by for lunch again some day.

They have just the one vegetarian disk, a burger with mayonaise, Heinz, sallad, onions and cornichons. Tasted great. Not that many vegan/vegetarian places in Odense, so had to make do with ordinary restaurants.

Olivia has become a must when we are in Odense. They promise food, which is made of fresh ingredients, and ask you to look through with serving. This last point may well delete. Okay we should even bestow the subsequent glass. But what. The food quality, the price of food and wine is relatively very low. It was our 3... More

I've visited Olivia for lunch and dinner many times - and I keep coming back. With a narrow but very well structured menu that combines classic French dishes with a twist, cafe dishes and strong meat dishes. I'm a big fan of their dailies, especially the "black pot", which is a long-cooked dish with varied content.
