I've been to the "old inn" to quite often when I was in Odense on business. Graved laks as a starter is a must. Main dishes are always very good quality. Not cheap, not fancy but reliable. Restaurant has an outstanding atmosphere and service is friendly and professional. If you want to please your guests in an extraordinary historic inn... More

In all fairness this restaurant was fifth choice when I visited it. All other restaurants in Odense were closed, so I was very glad this was open. The food was very nice and the staff made a real effort.

We experienced Den Gamle Kro along with family visiting from America. It was a wonderful way to introduce them to a true old fashioned Danish meal. The restaurant itself, is an experience in its own right. This 17th century building has so much "hygge", it's impossible to pinpoint one thing. It's a must for visitors to Odense!

Nice old stile restaurant with good Food and service. Interior from " the old days". We had a delicious 5 course dinner. Not really a impressiv wine list, but good enough to find matching wines. The wine suggestion to the menue was not optimal.

At a kind of anniversary we've got a four course dinner: Foies Gras, Lamb, Cheese and Creme Brulee with very suitable wines. It wasn't cheap but every Kroner worth. It wasn't the first time we were there and it certainly will not be the last. And the service: Discreet and efficient.

Had the traditional lunch of smorrebord and French onion soup. The soup was yummy. The sandwich was delicious. But, I like spicy flavors. I would definitely return and try other meals.

We went to Odense on Sunday, just as a stop over from Hamburg to Copenhagen. We did not have many options since most of the shops and restaurants are closed. The place was really nice. I never been to a traditional Danish house, but I assume the restaurant still have that traditional Danish house feeling?! So, I really like the... More

My wife was enchanted. She had the braised mallard, which in her estimation was great. I had beer-simmered beef valiant, and I found it tasteful, but not all the easy to chew. My mistake, I guess, as I hardly knew what I ordered and had expected something else. The service was fine, the surroundings picturesque; all in all a pleasant... More

My local friend recommends this restaurant for dinner, and also city hotel of Odense recommend it. So I visited it even I was alone, and dinner was very nice. Inside of restaurant you can find a lot of old decorations from more than 300 years history. I was not so hungry but I enjoyed nice breads with nice butter. Also... More
