Only a 5 minute walk away from Bonum Hotel. This was the friendliest, cleanest, good value for money eating place! Shame we only discovered it on our last night! However, the staff were very helpful and the food was served hot and plentiful. We were given a sample of their home-made apple vodka upon paying the bill....it was like liquid... More

We were taken there by our guide which always makes me suspicious of their motives but I should have had no concerns, the place was lovely and the staff very friendly. It provided a great opportunity to try out local dishes and cuisine and we were not disappointed. The menu was in English which was needed as there were dishes... More

Went to Swojski Smak 3 times during our stay in Gdansk. Prices reasonable for well cooked food and good sized portions, possibly because it is a few minutes walk from the city centre. Outside initially a bit off-putting, but once inside the staff were friendly and spoke fluent English. English menus are provided if needed. Customer service excellent - when... More

If you're looking for below the mark service and irregular food quality for a cheap buck in a cheap interior setting this is the right place for you. However, if you're after a pleasant restaurant visit: aim for the restaurants down by the canal instead.

Went to Swojski Smak 5 times in our week stay in Gdansk, that speaks for itself. Lunchtime (Mon - Thurs) there is a meal deal which is great value, there is an English menu and all the staff we met spoke excellent English, were friendly and the service level was just right. Evening time we had meals from the normal... More
