Poor service. Arrogant waitress without simple polite manner to customers. You won't expect everyone to be familiar with your menu. I was rudely told that the classic lunch could not be shared between two. That just made me feel so innocent that as if it...More

Well, we were told this was one of the best restaurant in Odense. It wasn't. The waiter was a little snobby but ok. The wiener schnitzel recommended was just ok. Nothing more. Ambiance in old was worth seeing but the restaurant- naaahhh.

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...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.
