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...

Good cafe in the center of the old town. Good atmosphere. A good place to meet. You can also do a little exercise. I recommend the cheesecake.

My son had a chicken breast marinated in a rose sauce and served with a salad. He thought it average. However, the Mojito he was served was one of the best ever, so the restaurant got an extra star for that. I had mushroom soup with just a few mushrooms in it. The restaurant was certainly very busy.

I really liked this place on slower nights. It's trying to be a piano bar and mostly succeeding unless it gets jammed up with too many customers. The piano player was jolly and takes requests, the drinks are reasonable and the location is one street over from Dlugi Targ facing towards St. Mary's and some of the small, touristy shopping...

Good place for a nice informal meal, good food, not really complicated but satisfactory- pancakes with spinach, pasta with various toppings, good shrimps (I know a guy who goes there every time he visits Gdansk to eat their shrimps). Prices moderate, service and atmosphere relaxed, sometimes the service could be more efficient. Very nice decor, but if you're looking for... More

Had breakfast here, very relaxed atmosphere, tourists having breakfast and locals having a "working breakfast". Beautifully presented, tasty plate of scrambled eggs (with cheese, olives, bacon). Cosy environment, waitress very friendly. Hot chocolate was devine.

Went there on a cold night around 9pm and the place was nearly packed but still very cozy and had a great vibe. Very tasteful decorated with a combination of industrial like raw bricks and modern white ceilings. Great combo! Live music added to the great vibe: jazzy piano with female vocals. Not too loud which was good. And the... More
