Nice place by the river

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.

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!
