Lunch

Great spot for a bite of lunch. Lovely French cafe with efficient service and a really good menu. You can anything from Brunch to Burgers so very varied and good quality. Generous portion size too so come hungry.

Good location, nice food, but a horrible service, we set out for 20 minutes or more waiting for someone to take our order, at last needed to go inside to order at the bar. Don't think it was worth the waiting food and coffee wasn't that good either

Great find. My wife felt the Chèvre salad was possibly the best salad she ever had. Vibrant crowd mostly locals. Reviews that it was expensive were somewhat accurate but when food and service are this good, it becomes secondary.

Ordered a large salad ($23). It was huge, but too much dressing so it was necessary to pick through and drain some bits. Charged >$2 for a glass of water. Really? If I had gone to a table near the bar and poured my own it would have been free. Could they have told me? Probably not because they were... More

Cafe Skt. Gertruds - "Gertrud's" or known as just "G" by the regulars - is a legendary spot in downtown Odense. It is a French-style brasserie located in what has become one of the most hot restaurant quarters of Odense (along with Vindegade) with places such as the family steakhouse Jensen's, the modern in-cafe Kræz, the hipster tapas restaurant Bar...

I have been here several times now over the last few years. The location is good, facing a plaza across from an old church. This is a dependable choice for good food and drink. It is an attractive brasserie type environment with some tasty dishes and a decent beer selection--mainly from the local brewery but with a few other good... More

A bit pricey but on a fine day sitting outside , you pay a bit more for the views of all the locals and tourists going by. Good nightlife area... More
