Nice pasta

A really good restaurant in the middle of Gdansk. Our company ate pasta and the fish soup and were all satisfied with the dishes.

We visited this bar with my wife last weekend. Both food and drinks was wonderful. First evening I had goose and my wife - duck breast. Food was good and prepared in Polish style, maybe too much potatoes. The service was good also. The next day we came back after dinner in restaurant Kubicki. I can't understand so high rating...

If you've had one too many pirogis or schaslick in Poland (and even if you haven't), this bistro is terrific. It's not on the main square, but just off to the side of it, not far from the water front. My husband and I had light pasta dishes- seasoned and presented just so. Wonderful flavor, friendly service, live music and... More

Both food and drink was quite acceptable, and the service was surprisingly good for Poland. The main reason I would recommend Mon Balzac is still the atmosphere late at night, in the cozy outdoor seating, while the piano man is playing.

I briefly visited this french/polish bar/pub with a friend. Wine was ok (we weren't given the chance to choose it), friendly staff, charming ambient resembling a french brasserie mixed with a local polish pub. Didn't try any food but was advised against it by a very knowledgeable local.

Lunch here before flight home. Meals chosen were moules mariniere, caesar chicken salad,and 2 seafood pasta. Waiter brought first two and said chef had mistakenly made chicken past which we could have now or wait another 15 mins for correct dish.We elected to wait and he brought 2 complementary plates of delicious bruschetta with tomato and pesto,followed 10 mins later...

Liked it very much! Food was good! The waiters try hard to understand English and help you with your choices. Good wine list and by the glass and beer was good too( according to my friends!)

I chose the chief's speciality, loin of wild boar, which was served on a stone cold plate and the food was only luke warm. I sent it back and it returned on a cold plate and was no hotter. I sent it back again and on it's return this time it was reasonably hot but still on a cold plate.... More

Called in here for breakfast and it was so lovely and such good value that we booked for a meal that evening. Both my husband and I really enjoyed the food then in the evening and it was nice to go somewhere with a waitress who knew her wine menu. The menu choice was a little limiting although there were...
