Lovely looking restaurant (but veggies beware)

Stumbled upon this place whilst walking back into town. Decided that we would eat there after looking at the menu outside, when we went in we were knocked out by the decoration, it looked like 'A Midsummer Nights Dream', ordered a potato pancake and found out that it contained beef (not really... read more

I was there to eat a little lunch. For this the place was perfect. I ordered a portion of pierogi with cheese. They tasted very good. They arrived with cream which did not fit me. Some herbs or similar would be better .

Dishes similar to fast food. Taking into account the assessment and the ease of finding free space does not make sense too complain. Besides the tourist season is nicer.

Had fish soup, it was horrible. Tasted like dishwater, and the white wine was tepid and expensive, Nice athmosphere though.

Great meat Pirogi here . Good prices . They fry their Pirogi so they are great I don't like the boiled one's too soggy for me . I also had cheese Pirogi here too . They were very sweet like cheesecake flavoured donuts ..

From when we sat down in the Gdansk sun to when we left my girlfriend and I were absolutely satisfied with the food and the service. We both had traditional polish soups that were delicious and filling. We both then had gulasz, mine ordinary and hers with placek po kaszubsku. I wish i had ordered hers for the extra five... More

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...
