This place deserves to be much higher in the rankings. Came on a Sunday night for a drink and a Tuesday for a meal. The service both nights was excellent. Staff were always available and were very friendly. Food was brilliant. Plenty of heaters and blankets :-)

Good lunch with a great view. There is not a lighter lunch menu which is a shame. I had halibut which was very fresh and well cooked. Service was good and expedient. Given the tourist trap location I was very pleasantly surprised.

The service is acceptable but needs improvement. Serving staff in Poland (and it was seen here today) behave as if their only purpose is to bring drinks and plates to tables. They do not understand that they are a big part of the client experience. More caring, more following-up would be great. The food itself was excellent.

Because of their outside heaters, we come here a lot. It's nice sitting outside and just watch life by the river. Their Zurek Soup is the best in Gdansk, in my opinion. The vaitresses are doing a great job. The service is excellent

Service is immaculate, fast and very friendly. The food was terrific, especially the beef cheeks were exceptional, as was the Halibut! Very reasonable prices too. Can't praise it highly enough.

It was cold to sit outdoors, but the outside space was wrapped in plastic which took away from the setting a little, but thanks goodness the wind was blocked! We could watch the strollers on the canal and enjoy the blue sky even though it was such a cold day. I had potato pancakes with a salmon salad, another member... More

After wandering around looking for somewhere to eat I settled on Pod Bandera. I was a little unsure as it is in a lovely spot right on the waterfront in the old town. It was a cold evening but I sat outside on the terrace overlooking the canal. Huge patio heaters warmed up the space and blankets were provided on... More

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.
