I was not impressed by the place. The food was nothing special. And even though we asked for a well done beef it wasn’t. Not even after it was sent back.

The staff is really, really nice. We tried different dishes: meat, pasta, nachos.... The owners really helpful with the recommendations. The location is very good! Right in the city center!

Our hosts at our B&B recommended the Citronen to us as we were not disappointed. We had their pastas which we enjoyed very much. We did learn that they were not open on Sundays & they take only Danish credit cards.

We use Cafe Citronen when we are in Svendborg, it is a cosy cafe with great coffee and home made cakes. It is a cosy place to hang out in Svendborg. You will find great chairs, todays papers and receive a very friendly service.

The stjerneskud was delicious and delicate. The amazing amount of different toppings, textures and flavors brought this entire dish together. It was a bit pricey but worth it if you want a traditional danish dish. We also had the potatoe soup which was nice and...More

We popped in here for a quick bite to eat after arriving in Svendborg. We both ordered a Sandwich (Club and Vegetarian), which we didn't realise would be "open" as they all are in Denmark. Regardless they were very big and considering the price, were...More
