Found this restaurant near St Mary's church. Lovely Polish menu with a twist. I had the bulgur with mushrooms, which was so tasty, my husband had the wild boar. We had Gvara cake and semifreddo for desserts, which were devine. We were given bread and...a cherry vodka shot for free. Lovely friendly waitress and a cosy restaurant filled with locals, what more can you ask for!More

Great place with variety of food and fusion variations of the traditional Polish cuisine. Interior presents a nice mixture of loft and minimalism, accompanied by green wall with plants, which visually divides the space, creating cozier blocks for each table. Important - young mama with...a stroller friendly, also has a changing table. Going to the food and drinks - we order tatar, zurek, ribs, bulgur with mushrooms, and burger with shrimps. All those dishes tasted deliciously and presentation was high end. I would like especially compliment on ribs since that was one of the best I have ever tasted - the texture was soft and the taste of the sauce naturally combined sweetness of cherry tomatoes and sourness of the plums. For the drinks we took winter tee and coffee - all tasted and looked great. Highly recommend this location, we will definitely visit it again soon.More

Chanced on Gvara on our first night in Gdansk and it was the best one we visited all weekend. Delicious food, really friendly and relaxed service and the added bonus of a really talented singer/guitarist as entertainment. The food was delicious.

It's a nice and cozy place. We had shrimps in butter, goose leg, wild boar sirloin, chocolate brownie and gvara cake! 🤤👌 Everything was simply perfect. And I really enjoyed the mix of flavors like cherry, pear, pumpkin, meat... Etc You must visit this place...😊 and they played Christmas songs during the whole evening, which made us feel this wonderful moment. The waiter was very attentive and pleasant.More

Thank you so much to the wonderful staff here for an amazing experience - a small but beautiful modern restaurant with gorgeous Christmas decorations including a real tree. We had the confit goose and the wild boar and both were excellent (though the goose was...the better… to die for!) and then the Gvara cake which was the perfect end to a brilliant experience. 5 alcoholic drinks, 1 soft drink and then some (complementary) vodka came in about PNL270… and was WELL WORTH every single penny. Try it - though I recommend booking as a good few folk were turned away!More

As an Italian abroad I am always skeptic about having pasta in other countries. But I had a good feeling about this place since I came in and I went for it and ordered the tagliatelle with pork tenderloin. Well it's been the best pasta...I have ever had outside of Italy and, I am not exaggerating, one the top ten of my life. Thank you Gvara for this small journey of pleasure.More
