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

Fried flounder was well cooked and tasty, but average fries and salads. Also tried a "gypsy" dish that was too heavy. Might be best for a quick lunch or dinner. Reasonable prices.

Well, I just found this place by the chance as I cycled up and down soaked streets of an old town. First impression, very cozy and a host Ms Kristina called Krysia well above welcoming and cheerful character. The soup - "Zurek" served instantly, which was a warmfull addition to this place, then second meal, polish traditional "schabowy" schnitzel very... More

Once you step in to Bar Jacobsen you don't know if you are living in the 2000's, or 60's or 70's - in a positive way. Friendly personal, a lot of smiles, good vibes and excellent food! You may hear a Jacques Brel music from the LP record player while having you dinner and time. Time stands still and most... More

Very friendly staff, out of ordinary decor, great żurek at 10:45 am served in no time. The fish soup was in the making process - next time it will be my choice!!!!

Place is cheap looking outside, hippie looking inside. Customers are mainly local, a lot of kids (noisy). Menu gives very little information, it said just "fish soup" or "cod" etc. We had fish soup and cod. The fish soup was tasty if you don't mind pieces of fish skin and bones included. Cod was like a good portion of British... More

We had high expectations for this place, unfortunately we were disappointed. The food that we had (some pancakes with potatoes and mushroom) were greasy and not very tasty. The salad on the side was not even washed. The room was smoky from some burned food, and the table was dirty. The lady who worked there (owner?) was very friendly though.... More

After 3 days of research we found a place where the fish is really fresh and is made in traditional, polish way. Excellent... Interesting decorations and friendly people makes this place extremely positive.

While wondering the streets of Old Town in Gdansk we found Bar Jacobsen. It is not on the main street and looked nice. We went in and were greeted by a very friendly lady. She immediately looked for menus in English without us asking. We ordered beer and tea with an order of flounder and an order of cod. The... More
