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

We had a fish meal (halibut filet) at Tawerna. Just one word to say: Perfect! We come from the western part of Norway and know how a good fish meal shall be. Excellent service!

Tawerna is a very pretty place (old-world style) and service is sporadic and inconsistent, but very friendly and competent when they are focused on your table (if that's confusing: they disappear for long periods, seem to suddenly realize they have not come by in awhile, run over and are very good, are friendly and seem like very nice people, and...

This is one of the more expensive restaurants in Gdansk, but we wanted a good meal, and that we got. The waiters are always standing in the doorway so if you need something, they will be at your service immediately. I ordered the vegetarian dish, and it was amazing. My friend ordered the salmon dish and she also loved it.... More

Very good old world restaurant with a varied menu(i.e Polish/European) and while the wine list is a little pricey I would strongly recommend for dinner etc.,

Quality price ratio is not good. Food is ok but compared to price level it is not that recommendable. Have been visiting in this restaurant as well several times, but If can have a vote my choice is not Tawerna.

This is for me the best restaurant in Gdansk. An high quality of the food and the service are the strength of Tawerna. The choice of the food is various and the prize is in line with the Quality. You can eat fish cooked following the polish traditional kitchen. I strongly suggest this restaurant if you want eat good food... More
