Indoor and outdoor tables in the heart of Odense. Service quick and friendly. We had coffee here to start the day and came back later for afternoon tea. Very pleasant sitting in the sun next to the flying trunk fountain. Very restorative!

After work a nice dinner at this restaurant. Wheather was ok, so I enjoyed the food outside. Quick servant; no waiting times. I recommend this place in Odense, close to the First Hotel where I always stay.

Excellent restaurant in a bistro style. We sat outside for lunch and were served by the owners wife who informed he was from Manchester and they had had the cafe for over 9 years. The menu was wide and varied but not OTT and there...More

We only visited the cafe part of the restaurant, not the ala carte restaurant. The service was great, nice atmosphere in the restaurant and the food was OK but nothing more than OK.More

A cosy, lovely French restaurant. Had the mussels which were lovely but just too big a serving. Service was very good, we had a drink at the bar to escape the cold which was nice.

It's a popular place, so sometimes it is quite difficult to find a good seat. But, they have an okay selection of tea and cake and enjoy the time chatting away with friends.

Decent quality for a fair price. We started with a cocktail especially made by the waiter and some snacks which was not on the menu we think (we just asked for some). Then we enjoyed a steak with side-dishes and had a Californian Pinot Noir....More

Café Skt Gertrud is named after Saint Gertrud, Saint Gertrud lived between 625-659 at a convent in Nivelles, she was known for her compasion and sympathy for the poor, sick and travelling. In Odense in the middle of the 1400 a small chapel by "Fisketorvet" was built in honour of Saint Gertrud, the Chapel has long since been demolished, however the street where Café Skt Gertrud lies is named after the patron saint. Café Skt. Gertrud opened its doors for the first time in 1986. "Lets meet at Gertrud's" is a saying that is often heard often amongst the locals, from the early hours of the morning and until the late hours at night. In this lively atmosphere, you can enjoy beverages both hot and cold, which can be accompanied by brunch or lunch dishes from our Cafe menu, from an Organic Cappuccino together with freshly baked croissant, or a chilled glass of Chenin Blanc with a salade Niçoise. In the evening you can enjoy a selection from our à la carte menu or our menu of the month. Our Kitchen brigade strive to use local produce wherever possible and our service staff are here to assist you and give you advice with regards to your choice of wine to compliment your meal, or even a Marc de Bourgogne together with an espresso. The atmosphere in our Café is vibrant, yet at the same time relaxed and good fun. On Friday's and Saturday's we have two resident DJ's that play old school soul and disco to more or less a packed house, here you can enjoy one of our trademark G & T's or a Dark n Stormy until the early hours of the morning.
