This french-inspired place has many times been the place for a meal, a bear or just a chat over a caffe latte. The place is popular with the locals and some times it can be hard to get a table.

We came here for nice dinner, but we are disappointed. The waitress asked if she should serve all the main dish together. First she dropped a dirty tissue from an other table on our bread basket. Then, a long time after my starter she served the main dish. Perhaps she miss calculated the time for cooking pasta, because it was... More

Nothing more to add. I had a burger, it was good. Managed to sit outside in the sun. Wine was very good had the syrah. Service was a bit slow, and I was starving which slowed it more in my mind. Food was good for the price. Nothing extraordinary but had certain details that were suprising even with simple small... More

Came back for lunch after a year and continue to like the place. Had a business lunch - club sandwich. Food and service quality both very good. Nice ambiance. Did not have enough time - would have loved to stay longer. Will definitely visit again if in the area.

Actually, it's probably very good for dinner too, but we just had an early meal there. It's right in the heart of downtown, on one of the walking streets.

Gertrud is a café but optional lunch/dinner option. Since I'm a citizen in Odense, I have ben here quite often and I'mmpretty sure that this is the best café for lunch and dinner if you want a perfect mix between grelt food, relaxed surroundings and a nice lunch or dinner.

This place has a nice atmosphere, and does excellent food. The menu caters for most tastes although my vegan colleague struggled a little. There's also a good range of drinks. My recommendation: the club sandwich.

This resturant is nice, slow service, but it is very neat place to have lunch. I went there once a week, I tried their nachos and it was not bad at all. It is a crowded place and great location in the center of the Odense City.
