Traditional Danish fare

We hadn't been here for 40 years, and it looks just the same. We ordered inside, but in good weather you can order aebleskivers at the walk up window outside. Besides the very tasty aebleskivers, don't miss the Danish sausage which is light and delicately seasoned.

I've always stopped off at the restaurant's sidewalk window to buys a trio of these traditional Danish donut balls, and in the past, thoroughly enjoyed this high calorie treat. This time, however, the cook simply pulled the balls out of the cooking basket a bit early, because they were very doughy on the inside. My wife and I were splitting... More

We had lunch and dinner here. Dinner because most of the town rolls up the sidewalks at 6 PM. Lunch was good but dinner not so much. They were understaffed and the wait once we put our order in was around 40 minutes and the food wasn't hot.

My family thinks I'm crazy, but I love the aebleskivers with ice cream for breakfast. Always have to have this when I visit Solvang. Service is wonderful, and location is very near our hotel.

This review is based only on the famous aebleskiver and if you are a fan of warm fried sweet goodness then you'll love this. Definitely a must try when visiting Solvang. Located in the heart of the town, Solvang Restaurant sells 3 aebleskivers for ~$3.60 that you can order straight from the window. Deep fried tennis ball sized dough that... More

Ordered their Aebelskivers to go to eat on the bench outside. I had raved about them to my daughter as one of the highlights of a Solvang trip. They were a heavy doughy mess inside. We split an order and ended up just having a bite or two each.

We've eaten at Arne's many times and have always been please. This place is a great value for what they serve. The Aebleskiver is delicious, just like my Danish aunt used to make.

Get in my belly. These things are great & cheap the jam on top is very tasty & homemade. The only bad thing is I had to share with the kids
