Dolly's is run by fellow Brit's and is a great place for a proper piece of cake or a plate of fish and chips. Always very busy whenever we have visited - we have not been able to get in on a number of lunch times, so booking may be advisable if this is your only choice. The food is... More

Fantastic food, location a little odd but very family, suitable for all ages. Friendly staff. May have to reserve for lunches as always full . Atmosphere is non serious and one can spend a long brunch/lunch and even push into the tea time.

This place has good food, a combo of British and French menu items. More cocktails and beer than wine. The have a friendly staff and the owner speaks English (she's British). The prices are great. The seating is like being in someone's small, crowded home. This is a very quirky little place!

Whatever the food you like, Whatever you want to try (burgers, crumbles, ..), you will not be disapointed. Fresh food, good tasty cooking. Of course I'm fond of cheesecake, it's undoubtly the best you can eat in Normandy! Waiters and their boss are so helpful, professionnaly rigorous, that's becoming rare and precious.

I like the atmosphere of this place, a place that you cannot find anywhere else in Caen except for the vegan restaurant. I love the food but we missed the smile from the waiters sometimes. Anyway, if you come around Caen, this is defenitely a place to come and have some food or thw delicious cheese cake ;)

Loved the little bit of genuine British eccentricity in Caen. Thanfully at the quirky and cool end of Britishness and not the naff end that is so typical abroad. Great burgers, pleasant and quick service. Reasonable pricing. Clearly popular with locals. Recommended.

We visited Dolly's on our way back to our campsite on the coast. It's packed full of quirky decor and the food is delicious! Something for everyone. I had the 'Hello Dolly' burger with a side of onion rings. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English which was a bonus. Our children loved the retro vibe.

Good for a passing drink. Interesting to see so much local life at close quarters: it improved my French listening to quiz shows on TV!

A very colourful place, good food, especially the caramelised ribs, curry and burgers. English is spoken and the staff is friendly. A great central location near the chateau.
