Great alfresco spot

I popped in for late lunch on a warm day, with chilled Chłodnik soup of beetroots veg and yoghurt providing a perfect starter. Lunchtime selection of pierogi w salad leaves , melt in one's mouth flavour, completed the meal. The service was friendly but unobtrusive. Lovely spot for traditional... read more

Lunchtime selection of pierogi w salad leaves , melt in one's mouth flavour, completed the meal. The service was friendly but unobtrusive. Lovely spot for traditional Polish cuisine without the stereotypical heaviness.

Chose the place because of the ship above the door at the front! Great bar to sit and have a drink. Atmosphere inside is very inviting but go through to the terrace!!! Just fantastic to sit peacefully on the river and watch the action on the green bridge. I had two starters the muscles in white wine and the salmon... More

This was our first stop when we arrived in Gdansk. We got a nice table outside in the shades on a hot summer day overlooking the river. Really nice restaurant with lots of flowers and very helpful English speaking waiter. We tried out several local dishes, like dumplings and stew, and excellent local beer. Would definitely go again!

Soup with meat and no taste, then big steak rare cooked...no/bad taste and finally apple cake with some taste. Very expensive and far from satisfaction even after a local vodka. Maybe try fish if you come

Located right on the river you walk up to a quaint restaurant greeted by the manager and server. The restaurant is all nautical style - teak and woods. Classic very tastefully done with beautiful table settings and tablecloths ironed (witnessed by me). I had zurek to start. It's definitely big enough to make a meal of it, presented in a... More

Service was just fine, before a large group arived in the middle of our dinner. As we were only two persons, had of course wait when groups required help more often. Dishes were all good, exspecially fishes. Tables are clean, as in this category you should expect. Can be recommended.

We loved the dumplings for starter and the squid and portions for main course were very generous with my boyfriend having ham knuckle and I had fish in a cheese sauce - rich but nice. Good sized tables and nice clean crisp table cloths add to the cosy atmosphere of this good restaurant in the old town. Recommended.

This IS the best restaurant in gdansk. Honestly it's not even close, it takes polish cuisine to a whole other level. More expensive than other restaurants in gdansk but it's well worth it. I Recommend the duck.

Inevitably the restaurant was quiet but the food and service were very good. The Tawerna has a nautical theme with models and paintings of boat with plenty of woodwork giving privacy without excluding you from the rest of the restaurant. The menu had a good choice of seafood and more traditional country dishes and the waiter made helpful suggestions from... More
