This is a place I have visited a lot over the years and I'm never dissapointed. I feel though as time has caught up to the nest. They have too much on the meny and should just stick to classics. A lot of the new stuff and a good beerselection do draw the overall quality up but the details is... More

It is the first time I have been asked to pay for a meal in a restaurant before it was even served...... The food was ok, but the service was slow.

Loved this place. Am surprised it is not ranked much more highly than it is. Ate here two evenings over our four night stay in Odense. Well located in the main pedestrian street in the City, it provides good quality food in a pleasant setting, including an outdoor seating area for when the weather is fine (heating provided for the...

We went for lunch - had different dishes. I had a fried salmon with a bulgur risotto. Excellent prepared, great taste. Very friendly and smiling staff. Great seating inside and out.

Good selection of offer and efficient service. Very popular with locals, plenty of tables but we got the impression that booking would help a lot at busier times. Prices were typical and the food covered all dietary requirements.

This cosy spot is a great place in the heart of Odense for a bite to eat before the evening's venue commences. They've got great salads, sandwiches and tapas, but also more substantial meals if you're so inclined. Friendly staff that's not doting over you.

Super nice place. I love this place. It is super cozy and nice not only for lunch or dinner but also for coffee break. They have amazing cakes and also a good selection of gin and other beverages. The service is professional and always helpful. Strongly recommended!

Had at delicious burger and sat outside in Vestergade in the afternoon with very little trafic and noise, which made it relaxed and comfortable. We had our dog with us, which sat next to the table without any problems. Good service, great food, nice atmosphere.

Don't go here expecting a fine dining experience. But the food quality is good. I've been here numerous times and have enjoyed the food knowing that this is a cafe where the menu/fare is standard but done well. I had a seafood pasta this visit which really surprised me in it's complexity. The atmosphere is comfortable, and I've always had... More
