I visited odenwalder last Thursday. The apperative: 'fricandel speciaal' and main course: schitzel were really good.

After dinner we ended up at the bar discussing the world's problems with the barkeep/owner.

I can reccomend this restaurant to everyone who is missing the Dutch cuisine and/or are looking for nice evening of bar drinking.

Thank Jeroen J

Excellent food and very friendly staff. The food is typical German with some Dutch delicacies. The draft beers are highly recommended!

This kind of place you definitely don't expect in Xiamen China. The owners Joost and William are welcoming you personnaly when you enter the restaurant with a warm welcome and when you see the menu your appetite is thrilled.
Fortunately the expectations are more than met and it's clear that both Gentlemen are enjoying what they are doing. The choice on the menu is great and the pictures according what you get on your plate. German traditional food but definitely with Dutch ingredients to exceed traditional seasonings. The Portuguese choice of wine was matching the food and the prices are reasonable OK for what you get.

After a month in Xiamen and with an appetite after a few hours city-cycling, decided to bring a visit to Odenwalder restaurant. We (Dutch / German / Polish) all really enjoyed the good quality meals & atmosphere. Friendly owner, very tasty food and a pleasant ambiance ... we will be returning as regular guests and highly recommend Odenwalder to both those seeking their traditional home-foods and those seeking to try something different / new to them. Thank you to J & M & chef W.

I went to this restaurant with my chinese girlfriend to introduce her to some western (dutch) food. We ordered a steak and a frikandel (香肠). Both were delicious, especially the frikandel was delicious for it's price.

The owners are kind and overall it was a great experience. I definitely want to go here again.
