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.

Used Gertruds to eat and relax between official meetings with municipality of Odense several times week 36. Nice food, as always in Denmark - wide offer of beverages and good service. Add old, nice cultural surroundings and interesting streetlife. And it gives a pleasant experiance. We will be back!

Great story about this cafe, which you might be able to read if they gave you menus when you sit down -- and that's after explaining to you that "There's a "restaurant" and a "cafe" -- where do you want to sit?" The food is the same, tablecloths on tables of the "restaurant," none at the "cafe," and the "restaurant"... More

Cozy French-style bistro - we just came in for coffee and dessert. Nice place, service was somewhat slow. But I'd recommend the lemon tart to anyone!
