The restaurant scene in Odense has really evolved over the last 5 years. Reportedly we now have more restaurants per inhabitant than any other Danish city. The selection is varied and offers something for everyone; from traditional Danish to authentic Japanese, large bistros and gourmet restaurants.

Whiteguide lists four restaurants in Odense, but in our opinion several additional restaurants deserve to be mentioned. In addition, we have a "street food" market, vegan & vegetarian restaurants, good budget restaurants and more.
