Looking For A Denmark Souvenir?

Looking for that souvenir you didn't get a chance of buy in Denmark? Don't despair. You may find it here at a price lower that you would find in Copenhagen. This store offers a wide variety of gift items, some practical/functional, some merely decorative. It is conveniently located on the main... read more

We chose this restaurant because we wanted to get smorgasbord. It was $22 per person. They had many foods like pickled herring, meatballs, chicken and sausage all cooked in traditional Danish ways. It was a good way to find out if you liked something or not, then you could ho back and get more of what you did like. We... More

Food was good, service was fine and not too pricey for a place on the touristy main drag. The buffet has a lot of food but little variety and a lot of salads. we ordered from the menu and were not disappointed.

My granddaughter and I recently visited Solvang and we ate dinner at the Bit O'Denmark. One of the best meals we had on this trip. I had the pork roll stuffed with prunes with all the trimmings. It was tender and delicious! Always eat here when I go to Solvang. Never disappoints!

We had dinner here and enjoyed excellent food and service. I had the wiener schnitzel which was very authentic and done to perfection.

There are several good restaurants in Solvang for a Scandinavian breakfast (especially pastries) and lunch. The options are fewer for dinner, perhaps because the tourists have left. But, we wanted a Scandinavian dinner. My wife is half Swedish. So, we recently revisited Bit O'Denmark. We passed on the buffet, because the main dishes sounded too heavy. If they had offered...

Despite many decent reviews, I was really disappointed in our meal. My husband had a French Dip and he said it was just okay. I had the Smorgasbord and did not care for it at all. A lot of the salads seem to be swimming in mayo and looked like they had been setting out a while. There was some... More

Since we'll probably never return to Solvang, and my husband is 1/2 Danish, and we're always willing to try something new, we asked the docent @ the Danish museum where to eat Danish food and she recommended Bit of Denmark. My husband ordered the meatballs and I the sausage, both with red cabbage plus cucumbers and mashed potatoes/gravy. WE loved... More
