This is a small restaurant / bar located on ul. Warzywnicza in Gdansk. They are open for breakfast and dinner (possibly lunch, but I am unsure). I had breakfast here and wanted to add it to the list of restaurants in Gdansk and write a review of it. Thank you.

Good for quick bite

Went for a quick lunch. Place was quite busy so the service was not the quickest. Had beetroot soup with pierogi inside and "placek z grzybami" which is kind of a potato pancake with mushroom, fresh veg and sauce. Food was tasty but not spectacular. A bit overpriced in comparison to quality. Still... read more

The place may look a bit ugly even though it's charming, but the food is really good. If you want to try local food, go to Jacobsen.

What a great find, authentic Polish food for a mainly Polish clientele. The decor is "original", every square inch is contemporary art, not just the walls and doors but the furniture too. The food was, great, I had beetroot and ravioli soup (delicious), my wife had the fish soup and perogis (a mixture of 4 types) all washed down with... More

We were looking for a small, quiet place to get some traditional Polish food. "Golabki" was clearly written as one of the specials on the outdoor menu board. This, for us, was the deciding factor to step inside! The atmosphere was that of a small pub. The dining area was nicely decorated in traditional style , and was very comforting.... More

A fascinating place, like a 60's coffee bar I used to visit. Painted ceilings, walls, lots of ornaments, pottery etc. worth a visit just to look at all the items on display. We called in for lunch and tried the meat and spinach dumplings, washed down with a beer. Just right. Old record player with lots of LPs on display.... More

Small place with homely food. Fish soup was tasty (eat the fish pieces carefully as you might find some bones). Good fried fish, Salad and potatoes. The atmosphere was nice, the two ladies there, helped to find the way in the Polish names of dishes. It was nice and not expensive.

We stopped in here twice. The first time there was a family of 20 with 4 young children running willy nilly. The waiters were patient with the children and we were impressed by how quickly and smoothly we were served considering the large groups around us. Kristina was a welcoming hostess and we returned a few days later. We enjoyed... More

This restaurant is so rustic Polish, the food is superb if you dont mind the decor and good old fashioned Polish charm. The guy who entices you or should i say invites you into his restaurant from the street is dresses more like a spy than a restauranteur but is great. The staff are friendly, the restaurant is confusingly quirky... More
