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.

Very average food, friendly staff

The restaurant is a bit hidden if you stay on the usual touristic path, they offer mainly local food. We had fish soup which was decent, the potato pancaces with mushrooms were allright, but why on earth they put ketchup and mayonaise on them?

Overall you can eat much better in Gdansk for the same money.

If you're looking for traditional home-cooked Polish food in Gdansk I thoroughly recommend Restauracja Jacobsen. The food is delicious, well-cooked and comes in generous portions. It's nothing fancy, but it's good value and the food is hearty, as Polish food should be.The menu (available in Polish, English and German) has a decent range of choice, from traditional favourites just as...

Little pub restaurant close to river in old town. Food was good but when we visited waitress told us that many meals on the list were not available. Service was friendly but not very organised. Everything went fine because restaurant was not full but I wonder how they manage when they have full house.

It is "on the other side" of the riverside sidewalk. Good food, we ate grilled fish and beetrot soup. The staff wasn't too friendly, unfortunately most restaurants in Gdansk prefer to work for the Germans.

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 we had a good time.

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
