A brewpub in town, well, it would be rude not to visit?
A lunchtime visit for us, 2 good meals, an open sandwich for me particularly enjoed and sampled a couple of the beers on offer too, both pretty good without being remarkable!
Nice comfortable place to visit.
Lovely sportsbar just around the corner from our "home" in Odense. Called in for a very tasty evening meal and watched FC Bayern v Dortmund in the Champions League final.
Food and atmosphere better than the footie!
Enjoyed our short visit here very much.
A short walk from the centre a really good meal here. Maybe it's more of a takeaway but, theere is an area to eat there too. Everything worked well, food delicious, staff friendly and reasonable price, this was a memorable meal for us, Lovely, something a little unusual!
Located on the pedestrian street next to numerous stores it was no surprise everyone stopped here to have an ice cream. It was sunny that day anyway so what better than a big tasty ice cream.
We tried an ice cream with 3 different flavors (for 30DKK), it was delicious, you can also have a smaller one (for 18DKK) or with 2 flavors (for 24DKK)
We also tried the hot cacao with soft ice for 25DKK, nothing special, they also serve coffee to go for 20DKK(+one chocolate small ball for free) but we didn’t try it.
We stayed near the train station so it was very convenient to take our coffee there, there are many cafes with tables inside but also a 7Eleven where you canyou’re your coffee for take away. A huge cup of Coffee costs only 15DKK there (it must be some kind of offer though because the normal price in Copenhagen was at 22DKK) which was the cheapest place except a kiosk (pic) near Funen Village where we paid 10DKK but the coffee served in a tiny cup.
On early afternoon we weren’t ready for a proper dinner so we tried to find a cheap place just to satisfy our hunger. Twister is one of these typical eastern eateries where the people go to eat kebab and don’t care about luxuries etc
They have some offers (1 rulle kebab for 35DKK, 2 for 50DKK, pasta salad for 30DKK) and many different menus (pita menu, flad menu, special mix, shawarma ret, shawarma pita, ris ret, club sandwich, burger). Actually we didn’t know what to choose so we tried a baguette shawarma (sis kebab I think) for 38DKK, it was big enough, we washed it down with a beer and happily left the place, it was just a good and cheap place for fast food…
Den Gamle Kro is the restaurant that I would choose, when-ever I had something special to celebrate, simply because it has such a great and interesting interior.
This restaurant is dating back to the year 1683 - read more on their web-page !
Den gamle Kro
Favorite Dish: I did not eat there, because I did not have enough time, but I was allowed to walk around and take my photos and I saw some local people enjoying a special meal.
Restaurant under Lindetraet is a great, oldfashioned restaurant that you will find in the old part of town, directely opposite of the birthplace of H.C. Andersen.
This restaurant is open daily except Monday: 06.30pm till 09.30pm only !!!
Favorite Dish: I did not eat there, just had a look around and was allowed to take these photos inside the restaurant.
Yes, it is a simple take away for all kind of cold and hot meals, that was my favorite place to eat smørrebrød, my favorite danish meal. Smørrebrød means "Bread and butter" in danish, but in fact it is a lot more than that !
Favorite Dish: Smörebröd / smørrebrød is a special kind of "open danish sandwich", mostly made with 1 slice of dark fullcorn-bread, some butter on it plus ingredients that normally are not mixed togeather in a sadwich in other parts of the world accoring to my experience.
My favorite smørrebrød is with liver-pate as you will see it in my 1st photo: on the left it is just the liver-pate and on the right is another one with liver-pate plus a special kind of ham.
It is not easy nowadays to find a place that sells smørrebrød in Danmark, BUT when-ever you see one, taste it and I am sure you will like it as well !
A authentic Danish restaurant from 1761, right in the old part of town, only a few meters from Hans Christian Andersen's house, and just opposite the Radisson Blu hotel. The waiters are sweet and nice and accustomed to tourists, and the menu is in both English and German. We were there one hot summer day and enjoy a nice lunch with Danish open face sandwiches, in the middle of the square. Prices are very reasonable and the service good. Highly recommended for families with children.
Favorite Dish: Dansih open face sandwiches, a must try in Denmark
This medium-sized french restaurant is located in Brandts passage inside one of the gatehouses offers splendid french countryside cousine, not to mention a real good wine assortment. Prices are in the upper end of the middel range (for danish restaurants) but certainly worth the effort.
Normally it is possible to get a table without reservations but some times it can be nessesary as the restaurants fills up pretty fast.
The dishes are rather small but this is compensated by the rich taste and high quality of the ingredients.
Opening hours are:
Lunch : 12.00 - 15.00
Evening/Supper: 17.30 - 22.00
Favorite Dish: The dishes they have vary, but those with duck are usually superb.
We rarely eat in restaurants attached to museums, tourist attractions, etc. But we made an exception this time and it was well worth. The food and beer were very tasty and the price was reasonable.
Favorite Dish: We had the daily special which consisted of 3 smorrebrod sandwiches and a beer, all delicious.
"Den Grimme Ælling" is a relatively cheap buffet restaurant with a good price/quality ratio. There is a big salad bar, and several kinds of roasted meat. Also there are some OK desert options.
Around noon there are often extra generous price offers.
Favorite Dish: No one thing in particular, the food here is good but none of it remarkable, at least not when i have been there.
Gelato offers good italian Ice cream, and pancakes with different fillings. Furthermore you can get coffee etc.
Favorite Dish: Pancake with chocolate, banana and coconut (30 kr.), really nice dish on those cold winter days. In the summertime the ice cream is quite good (my favorite is the pistachio).
Located just round the corner from Kongensgade (pedastrian street) Capri is located on the first floor in an older building on Dronningsgade.
The restaurant opened in 1978, making it one of the oldest italian restaurants in Odense.
The interior bears witness to the owners great passion for racingcars italian style.
The food is somewhat mediocre, however prices are reasonable and some of the dishes are of a good quality... and the italian beer is also ok.
Favorite Dish: The mushroom pizza is good (if you are a fan of mushrooms)
