This was our second visit to Odenwalder and we went at the request of some friends. It is difficult to put my finger on it exactly but I simply didn’t enjoy our visit here. Parking was a nightmare, the place was pretty busy and so usually I would be saying this is a good indicator for any establishment but I simply didn’t enjoy anything that arrived at the table. I thought the sausages were dry and uninteresting, to me sausages should be juicy and flavoursome and these were blandness personified. Not bad just also not good. Comments from around the table were pretty much the same. Ok for somewhere different to go in Xiamen but probably won’t return.

Dear XMRoots,
I'm sorry to see that you didn't got what you expected. But our sausages are homemade and very highly respected. But humans can make mistakes. Something must went wrong and we're sorry for that. Please give us a chance again. Can I attract you with a free beer to try them again?

Cozy homely place with delicious food and super nice beer. On the advice of a hotel (Swiss) employee alerted at this bar / restaurant. Chinese hostess and Dutch host give you a welcome feeling. I will definitely return.

It was a great night at the Odenwalder. This restaurant in Xiamen is a hidden gem. Great food, great people. The hospitality from the owner couple is the reason for me to go back again.

Another very enjoyable evening. Good food, good beer, great little place. This time I tried the sausage. They were well prepared and tasted fantastic. Very mild. Next trip, I'll try another selection on the menu.
