The real Danish Experience in Horsens

Cafe Dolly is a local institution. It's Grandmas danish cooking - not the new Nordic style - just plenty of pork and potatoes. But in a very nice environment and honestly served. Definitely worth a visit.

I went here back in april, me having fried pork (dish of the house) and my mate have some fish menu I think. Both of us were rather disappointed with what we got.. before they moved, Dolly made some of the best food in town. Now I am not so sure any longer. My mates fish had the odour of... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a local lady and we were so pleased we went! Local Danish food which was different but very nice. My boyfriend had the stegt flæsk which tasty and filling. I had the steak which came with a bernaise sauce which was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff were very attentive... More

Me, my boyfriend and his family went here because we noticed that they had a vegan course on their menu ( a celery - steak with a small salad, vegetable - puré and potatoes on the side). I have been in Horsens for four days and this is one of few good meals I've had here. Finding vegan food is... More

Situated down at the old harbour, Dolly's is a well known restaurant with a lovely atmosphere serving traditional Danish food. We like to go here when friends and family come to visit and we have also used the take out service. The food is always good and the service is always friendly. I usually have the stjerneskud (various fish and... More

Cafe Dolly claims to serve a typically danish dish with parsley sauce. My wife got that, and the sauce was parsley sauce, but a plain bechamel with some fresh chopped parsley. I got a fish, a flounder, with that much salt on 1 side, and no salt on the other side, same sauce as my wife got. They also served... More

My husband and I had dinner here after reading some reviews and were not disappointed. We were the only non-Danish people in the restaurant, which was busy on a Monday evening - also a good sign. Tthe waitresses spoke perfect english and were very accommodating. The food itself was very tasty - huge servings and reasonably priced by Danish standards.... More

We'd heard of this place and were invited out for a meal, we expected it to be a dive, but it was super nice. The meal we'd been invited for is "Stegt flæsk" or roasted pork with parsley sauce - pretty close to a national dish here in Denmark, and it was honestly the BEST we'd ever tasted!! The pork...
