I went to this restaurant with my friend for lunch. The atmosphere around the restaurant is very nice. We ordered a large plate of platter, mushroom soup, and braised veal. The food was great but staffs are not so friendly. I am not impressed with the service.

A lovely experience which starts with the charming facade and the welcoming signs. The entrance hall is a step back in time and the atmosphere is completely authentic without even trying. If I lived here it would be my favourite restaurant without a doubt and I would say it is just that looking at those on the tables around us.... More

We had an excellent dinner in this old restaurant. Beef and lamb were excellent, serving was very good. If you pass Odense this is a place you should not miss.

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.
