We've found this place on Polish food-y service Gastronauci.pl. It got our attention due to good reviews. It was however very hard to find it but finally we've asked a guard at the castle entry gate and found out that the restaurant was inside the lower castle area. You don't need a ticket for the castle, just tell the guard... More

Based on the recommendations in both Rick Steves and Frommers, as well as on TripAdvisor, we felt compelled to eat at Gothic Restaurant and Cafe, which is located inside Malbork Castle. Our dinner was first rate -- my wife had the highly recommended "green chicken," which is a moist, perfectly cooked chicken breast served smothered in a pesto seseme green... More

If you read this, I recommend you eat at the Gothic Restaurant - fantastic compared to 'internal' restaurants at major tourist attractions. Menu is more expensive than elsewhere in Poland, around 35-40pln/£7-8 per dish. However there are a variety of poultry and meat dishes which are both traditional, but also accessible if you are wary of Polish cuisine. The taste... More

I was here as part of a business trip to Poland because our Chinese clients wanted to look round Malbork Castle - which in itself is worth a visit. The Gothic Cafe was busy with a couple of tourist bus groups but the staff were efficient and helpful. We chose the special which was really tasty and filling. Without wishing... More

The restaurant is located in the historical cellar with arched celling and bricks walls. Same positions from menu are inspired by the medieval recipes. Apart of them some popular Polish folk dishes. Mind number of meals when ordering, the portions are huge. Sometimes they are big enough for two persons. The prices very moderate and waiters staff fast and competent.

Apparently Chef of the restaurant is quite a popular cook in Poland... The food was wonderful... a really interesting fusion of typical Eastern European food and not-so-typical presentation.. Our gang had fish, chicken, beef - and they all were delicious... Don`t forget that its Poland, so portions are massive.. they will not leave you hungry!! I honestly think this place... More

We were surpised to learn it is on Malbork grounds. I was expecting "tourist" focused food with lower quality and higher prices... A nice surpise to see the food was tasty,... More

Visit for lunch with low expectations being inside the castle complex. Lovely vaulted dining rooms, with stone floors which made for a cool and atmospheric interior. We were a family / friends group of 10, with a mix of ages. The choice of dishes ranged from Trout with almonds down to potato fritters with sour cream or mushroom, all were... More
