Gourmet food with local ingredients

One of the restaurants in Svendborg that you should definitely try is Restaurant Resumé. At Resumé small and large gastronomic surprises await you. The restaurant offers a set menu at a fixed price. In the menu you’ll get snacks, starters, a main course, dessert as well as coffee and cake, all with ingredients that are adapted to the season. Included in the price is also a wine menu – or you can choose the beer menu or a non-alcoholic juice menu. Please book a table very well in advance!

If you aren’t lucky to get a table at Resumé, try at the sister restaurant Salig Simons Gaard. The small bistro in the cozy courtyard in Brogade offers French temptations for both lunch and dinner.


At Jettes Diner in Brogade you get the best burger in town! The popular diner has been on the same corner since 1995 and has many regular customers. The locals know that you don’t just order “a burger” here, because there are many combinations to choose from. Are you into an ostrich burger or a Mexican burger? And would you like it with cheese and serano ham? Jettes Diner also offers a menu that always includes a vegan dish or vegetarian dish.

Best pizza in Svendborg

In addition to regular coffee, the coffee bar also offers a 15 organic plunger coffee, a homemade cold brew and a completely unique ice tea. If you have a sweet tooth, you can also get the city’s best hot chocolate.

Smørrebrød by the harbor
