While shopping, my wife asked the owner of an upscale boutique about a restaurant we were considering. You could tell by the look on her face that she was not a fan. When asked where she would go she recommended Mon Balzac. It's a smallish restaurant. We asked about draft beers and then looked at the menu. We had pounded... More

Looked promising but very disappointing. Slow, inattentive service. Waited over an hour for our food. Staff seemed oblivious when we inquired about the status of our meal three times. When it finally arrived, the food was pretty mediocre. Several entrees were even cold. Would not recommend.

We ordered prawns for starter which were very nice and steak for main.... More

Salads with berries, seafood, tasty light lunches in nice atmosphere. Very good service, but lack of good terrace in summertime is a slight minus.

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
