Good quality food and at reasonable price

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... read more

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.

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

We Had different fish dishes here, gratinated white fish, Salomon, soups... Salomon was a little dry but the rest was perfect. Charming old-looking place, reserve a table early in the week if you would like to go here in the weekend. Live piano music. Good riesling wine and very good service. Tried to go back the next day but they... More

Ate dinner here one night with a friend and the food was delicious. I had roast duck with red cabbage and it was well presented and very tasty. My friend had fish which was also excellent. The restaurant was busy but the service was good. There was a pianist playing all evening which created a good atmosphere. The location is... More

You have to try their traditional Zurek soup, it is delicious! The restaurant itself is decorated in Old Polish Style. Very charming atmosphere.
