Small restaurant within steps of most "visiting places". Had lunch past 3 pm, which great in my book, as had visions of skipping lunch altogether. Much better than average food. A very tender and tasty filet mignon (€18,40) and 8 fresh scampi (€15,90) in a beautiful diabolique creamy sauce. Not too diabolique (spicy) but very very nice. The pepper sauce... More

Having been turned away from some of the bustling restaurants on the square we were beginning to think we might have to settle for a fast food experience on a busy Saturday night so finding Dolly's was a stroke of luck. It wasn't busy but deserved to be as the prices were less than two thirds of the nearest competitor... More

There was space when there wasn't at other restaurants which worried me slightly as the town was very busy but the food came and was nice. Limited menu. Hubby's stew was delicious. Bill for three lunches with beers was 40E.

Lovely fresh prawns in creamy sauce came quickly on a busy lunchtime, and the portion was just right. But our food was served by a not too friendly gentleman, and the woman behind the bar didn't look too happy. Despite the not so perfect service, I like the food, so, I will return soon.

We are always very friendly ourselves, but in this restaurant we didn't even have the opportunity to make a reservation. We called to make a reservation with a gift card and she was already pissed off, even rude when she answered the phone so we wisely decided not to go there. This is not the way your treat your future... More

On the coldest day of the year we stopped into Dolly's and we are glad we did. The prices are more reasonable than anyone around, the service was excellent and the food was terrific. We opted for the Flemish Stew, the smoked salmon salad and the steak. All were served quickly and all were excellent. We had four people in... More

Had stake and chips cooked to perfection followed by the waffles with vanilla ice cream drisled with chocolate sauce, the food was so good we went back the following night and had the same again. Amazing

There's quite a limited menu - mostly various kinds of steak - but Dolly's competes with its many neighbours in this restaurant-infested part of town by offering excellent value; so it was slightly surprising to find it almost empty on a Friday evening. We had a friendly welcome and the various gradations of 'done-ness' were well understood. A glass of... More
