Positively suprised

We found this place by accident, we were so tired of walking all day long that just wanted to rest and eat something small. I recommend fish soup. It was really delicious.

This is the 4th time I dine at Mon Balzac and this time, they really impressed me. I´ve been happy and content with their wild boar and goose so far and this time, I had an urge for pasta. I won´t delay my judgement any longer: The best pasta I´ve ever tasted. The tagliatelle aglia olio with peperonico just lifts... More

During our visit to Gdansk we went to have breakfast at Mon Balzac almost every morning and indulged in the wonderful food! The restaurant opens at 8am every day and has a lovely outside space to have breakfast (as well as options to eat indoors). The breakfast menu offers plenty of choice, such as set menus (e.g. sweet, vegetarian or... More

We went here twice, both times for breakfast. Excellent service and delicious food. The eggs with bacon were especially good, as were the croissants and French breakfast options. Also, the best coffee we've had in Gdansk. Now we want to go back to try dinner.

Urban terrace dining with startling pianist. Polish cuisine with some nuances of old times seasoned with inventive ingredients. Absolutely delicious and generous dishes. Service is most friendly but by the time of our visit a bit slow, perhaps due to quite busy night.

My starters (garpaccio) and main course (wild board) were really good. Also my girlfriend was satisfied with her goat cheese starters and tuna pasta main course. The staff was really nice too and interiour elegant so nothing to complain. The mojito was a bit sloppy, but maybe I'm used to more generous-with-the-rum homemade version. All together: Great job!

Called in at midday for a bite to eat , place is nicely furnished service first class with food to match. We. Only had a light snack both were well presented both looking good and tasting good so would recommend a visit in a area that is well populated with cafes and bars .

Made a few visits for food and drinks. Reliably high standards. Friendly staff and good atmosphere, though the dark decor may not suit everyone.

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...
