This place looked like a typical tourist trap! But as it was the first warm breathe of spring we decided to sit to outside terrace, pasta truffel was excellent and also the schnitzel with seasonal salad was goood!

This restaurant is not very big and may not very stylish like nearby one, but it is very comfortable. Service was very fast and accurate, food is tasty and portions are large. Also they have not bad wine selection.

Nice little restaurant / bar close to the canal. I had chicken (can't remember the name of the dish), and it was better than I expected. The service was good.

We stopped by for a drink (and to escape from the rain!). Nice and toasty thanks to the big heaters. Friendly waitress. Lovely mulled wine which arrived promptly. Coffee and brandy likewise.

I have lost count of the number of times that I've been to Gdansk, and have eaten in several different places, but will stick with this one. The location is very good, right on the water's edge, and the menu has a good range of Eastern European classics. The service is good, and the food excellent.

Called for desert and coffee the other day. Location by river is superb. Despite being very cold we were able to sit outside due to closed covers and heaters. Great atmosphere, nice cheesecake and good coffee. Friendly service too. Nice!

We chose to eat here as it offered authentic polish cuisine and had a cozy covered outside dining area that overlooked the river. For starters we had steak tartare and herring with cream, apples and onions. Both were delicious! We were really impressed with how tasty they were and the value for money. By my last mouthful of steak I... More

One of the many restaurants over looking the river, we chose this one because they had a rather good female singer performing a Nora Jones type catalogue of ballads which created a lovely romantic ambiance, perfect for the location. It was a Saturday evening and the restaurant was busy but the staff were friendly and efficient and the food was... More

The food here was excellent. A varied choice, of traditional Polish and European meals. We paid £22. for a two course meal, and two coffees. The portion sizes were ample
