“Pleasant Surprise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012 via mobile

Saturday evening and almost impossible to get a dinner reservation in Gdansk! Be prepared. Rest. Velevetka is in the heart of Gdansk by Dlugi Targ & the City Hall, actually in the cellar below the Tourist Info.
Regional kitchen it says and we were somewhat apprehensive. Actually very tasty local food, though the menu might 'look scary'. We had some very good pirogie-dumplings as starters as well as potatoe cake. Both quite good. The other couple had the House Speciality a hugh meat platter with pigs knuckles, ribs, saussages, potatoes & sauerkraut. Very tasty. The beef tenderloin and chicken were more ordinary, but very tasty. A rewarding eve after all.
Nicest girl possible serving in the vaults of Gdansk. Checked several times if we liked the food, if anything missing and we even got several smiles! Many Poles joined us later in the evening.

“Local food, well prepared”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

Gdansk and Kashubia specialities - great "kluski" ?? - small potato dumplings like spaetzle. I go here every trip, and always enjoy the meal.

“Small portions”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

I visited this restaurant with Polish friends, whilst they thought that the meal was good, I thought that the portions were on the small side but then again I was very hungry. However, it is well worth the visit.
