“Best French value-for-money place in Odense”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Currently Druen & Bønnen is the 7th highest ranked restaurant in Odense - all top 7 is French style places, or at least somewhat inspired by French cuisine. Druen & Bønnen ("the grape and the bean" connotating the reliance on quality wine and coffee) is without doubt the best value-for-money French restaurant in Odense, with Café Olivia as a runner up. The top 6 restaurants you'd only visit for special occassions because of the price level.

Druen & Bønnen is centrally located on the town hall square. Get a window seat and watch the shoppers, the locals and the tourists pass by with the scenic Italian Rennaissance-style brick gothic town hall and the brick gothic Cathedral, Saint Canute's Church, in the background. When the weather allows it there is outdoor serving.

I've been to Druen & Bønnen many times, either for lunch or for afternoon coffee and cake. For lunch I've tried both the Tartiflette and a classic ham-based sandwich. Each was delicious, though I'd recommend to try real French food when you are actually visiting a French place. They also serve Moules frites and Croque Monsieur. With a nice wine collection and good coffees along with homemade cakes, the place is perfect for afternoon rendez-vous. I have yet to try the restaurant for dinner, which I'm sure will be a nice surprise.

Serving is mostly young females, polite, but may not have the last finesse to give a 5 star. Also the food is honest, fresh and very tasteful, but not gourmet - but anyway great value for money.

“Best eatery right at the town hall square”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Flakhaven, also known as The Town Hall Square, is the central square in the pedestrian area, surrounded by monumental buildings like the Town Hall and Odense Cathedral Sct. Knuds. There are several eateries on the square - but we fortunately ended up at Druen & Bønnen (Grape and Bean I suppose would be the English name). We started with a cold Sauvignon Blanc and decided we should dine there as wel.

The mussels were delicious. The tapas with salami and cheese likewise. It was an excellent meal and the service was helpful with advice on wine or what was on the menu. Highly recommended.

“The fixed price dinner was excellent, though wine in Denmark is expensive compared to say France”
Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Everything we ate was delicious and it was good to see plenty of carefully cooked vegetables. The fruit and I scream was perfect for a hot evening. We sat next to a Danish family who said they eat there every time they come to Odense.
