I went here this evening with a group of 5 other ladies. Drinks were great, and overall food was really good. Only one person wasn't happy with her vegetable pasta dish (said it tasted 'blah'), but she also said it was the only time she hasn't been happy with the food here. Potato skins and onion we shared were delicious.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the food at Gerti's with 5 girlfriends. Service is good and the food is served hot with very plentiful portions. Like the choice of 1/2 fries - 1/2 salad with the meals. Have been here quite a few times and have always had a tasty meal.

Good food, great atmosphere and tasty grub! Summer patio is a real attraction. Food choices are always enticing.

We were at Gerties on January 30th 2015, we didn't have a reservation but since it was just 5;00 PM the greeter advised us we could have a table till 6:30 when they were all reserved. This would work out perfectly. Our server came over promptly took a drink and starter order , our drinks arrived very quickly and our... More

I have been coming to Gertie's for many years. My sister and I started coming and we love the atmosphere and the food is so delicious recently my daughter had the warm beet salad and she raved about how good it was! My husbands favourite is the beef aujour sandwich. I always get something different and it is always excellent.... More

Get this soup!! It's not always on the menu but when it is, get it!! It has feta cheese and the flavours are just spectacular. Thick and rich. Unfortunately, I must also advise you to NOT get the chicken wings. Sadly they were rubbery and pale in colour when we had them last week. It seemed like they just pour... More

I brought my mom and boyfriend here for lunch. It was our first time. I had walked by many times and the restaurant was always very busy, so I knew it must have been good. We got bruschetta to start - probably one of the best bruschetta's I've ever tasted. Also presented very well. The waitress was very kind and... More

Food here is great! Student friendly! Prices are amazing, especially for the big portion of food you will be getting. Try the Bruschetta! Best in Peterborough for sure!

We spend a lot of time in Peterborough and have our favourite restaurants - but we decided to try something different. As it was a little later in the evening we decided to order appetizers and some drinks. We were so pleasantly surprised. The food was very flavourful, great portions, and the drinks were excellent as well. Do yourself a... More
