Great food, cheap but really good value. Espeacially the breakfast was something you should try! Portions look very pretty. I really recommend this place. I will definitely go there again.

In the heart of old Gdansk and only meters from St. Mary's Basilica, this restaurant offers high quality food and excellent service. I have been there several times and will go again. Try mulled beer in winter.

This is probably one of my best restaurant experiences ever! Ive been here several times in 2013-14, both with friends and family, and it never disappoints my high expectations. I ordered the wild boar with chantarelle sauce the first time, and Ive ordered that dish and the lava cake every time since. It tastes superb, and Ive recommended it to... More

Have been in this place several time. It is a firm choice If you want to make a quick decision where to go. Food is good, service again on good Polish level. Quite "Steril" place but ok. Close to Duga makes this place attractive.

This is a lovely,comfortable restaurant where the service was welcoming and relaxed. The subdued lighting and brick walls made it a very pleasant place. Whilst the food was reasonably priced and beautifully presented, unfortunately the vegetables were cold and both meals - chicken breast and duck lacked that je ne sais quoi, they were rather bland. That said, the New... More

We ate here on a Thursday evening. We arrived late but they were welcoming and happy to serve us. We tried a wild boar and a duck dish which were both perfectly cooked and presented. The price was reasonable for the quality. We were really impressed!! The decor is good and the staff are friendly. They even had live jazz... More

The first time we were here we sat outside which was really nice, and had their excellent baguette open faced chicken sandwich. This time, winter, we sat inside. We liked the interior though. Not being too hungry we decided just to have a small dish. I had the herring appetizer. Presented very nicely and was good. My husband had the... More

We poped up over the restaurant late, but they found us a table and treated us very friendly and professional. The waitress recommended us the best dishes. The price was a bit high but the atmosphere was great, with live music. The experience worth it.

I've had a number of hotel breakfasts (buffet style) in Poland and this was the worst. The choice was very limited (e.g. only one kind of cheese), veggies were not fresh, and coffee was pre-1990's, if you know what I mean (though their espresso was fine and they have a decent selection of teas). What bothered me a lot was... More
