Great little Danish restaurant with great Danish food. We ordered a Combo Sausage and meatball dish and a Aeble sausage, the best jam ever. Every meals are served with a variety of bread and all are very good. Excellent service all the time, I have been here twice and will definitely visit again.

We availed of their buffet called Smorgasbord and it is a selection of Danish and European dishes such as the meatballs, salads, fruits, cold cuts and some pastries. Staff are warm and service is also great. The exterior and interior of the restaurant seems to transport you to another place and time.

We love this restaurant and always eat here when visiting Solvang. Great Danish food, we love the meatballs and purple cabbage. Service is always good and restaurant is one of oldest buildings in Solvang and a bit small. Not real fancy but good food. We come for the purple cabbage.
