“Great place to dine if.....”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

you are in Odense. My wife and I enjoyed a great dinner - 8 courses - everything was perfect except for the veal. It was not tender enough for my taste and to be honest I hate meat that is chevey! It could be the one little mistake and for me that was the mistake that kept me from rating this as a five star experience. Except for this everything was just fine - we enjoyed the fine restauration of the inn and the service provided - they were busy but never lost sight of us! My wife and I agreed that it would have been great to have better chairs - when being seated for three hours the comfort is important and it could be better (we are getting old)! My advise - go there, you get a lot for the money you spend!

“Nice decor but pricey”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

The restaurant is housed in an old typical Danish house with thatched roof which provides a lot of character to the restaurant and creates a certain exotic ambiance. Nonetheless, I was not very impressed with the food. I ordered salmon expecting a hot meal and was served an appetizer at the price of an entrée. Additionally the maître D kept serving me items from the chef which were not at all to my liking. I have a very delicate and sensitive stomach thus I do not appreciate being served food which I did not order. Overall it is a very nice and romantic place to dine.

“Great food, historical surroundings”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

The food is absolutely superb made from Local produce and you will love the old buildings including the restaurant, which is housed in the original inn with Royal privileges several hundred years old. Actually the surroundings are some thirty original village buildings constituting an open-air museum, where you Can experience, how people lived in the Danish countryside 200 years ago.
