If you are in Odense, you have to do yourself the favour and visit Gertruds! Great atmosphere. Amazing food. Outstanding service. And they make a mean Gin&Tonic!

Visited Gertruds several times over the years and I am never disappointed. Owner Mark and his team do there very best to ensure guests have the perfect dining and socialising experience. Menu is updated regularly and offers the diner a wide choice of fresh food. Owner Mark is often on hand to explain dishes and advise a choice of wine... More

Thanks Mark and Malene for a fabulous night on Jan 16th. Compliments to the chef and staff, the food, wine and service were second to none, best steak we’ve eaten in a long time! If you’re in Odense, then this is the place to eat, whether lunch, a quiet evening meal or a special occasion.

Have gone here a couple of times for a drinking dessert and its great. Friendly and helpful staff, great offers of beer and wines, and the own mixing of drinks makes it personal and nice. A must visit during a night out!

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
