We stay in Danzig for 10 days. After 5 days and many different locations I've gotta say it's the best restaurant I've experienced here. Fair prices, nice Ambiente, nice jam session from live musicians. Super friendly service and the meal just completes a perfect evening....We go there again for sure before we leave.More

Exetremely slow service. We were waiting for a bottle of Prosecco for 17 minutes and I’m still waiting for my salad (40+ minutes). Just for the record: tartare for my friend was really good, and I hope I will enjoy my salad as well, but...please, could you inform your guests if they have to wait that long. I have a main dish in the order and I’m really afraid of how long I’ll wait for this.More

Longer waiting times for ordered dishes due to you ordered main course and starter. Starter will be always serve earlier than main course. Unfortunately, the waiter wasn't informed that starter and main course have to be given in the same time. We're sorry for any...More

I believe this is our 10th visit to Canis.. Excellent sirloin, probably even better than previously. Same for prawns, the added subtle toasts were great. Fantastic riesling (Polish! I was shocked someone made such a wine in Poland) Solid creme brulee. Very pleasant music, as...usual. My only 2 "buts" concern service and Covid protection. Windows were not open, although they could have been. The waiters were not wearing masks , the one helping us said he had asthma. But what is the probability, that the second waiter was also asthmatic ? In such case they could have used plastic helmets - they allow normal breathing. Especially that waiters were moving their faces close to clients and talking directly into our faces.. So we will probably put on hold our visits to Canis till the Restaurant increases Covid awareness.More

Came across this restaurant yesterday afternoon whilst exploring the streets of Gdansk, away from the most touristy areas. Thought it looked interesting and figured we'd return later in the evening for drinks. I looked it up on TripAdvisor and saw that they have a rather...interesting food menu as well. As we were looking for somewhere to have a nice, romantic dinner we decided to come back for dinner as well as drinks later on. We came in without a booking and got seated straight away by a very nice waiter. She brought us a couple of glasses of prosecco and the menus. I ordered a delicious lamb shank, and my boyfriend ordered a roe deer ragu. Both dishes were absolutely delicious, a bit different from other restaurants which made a nice change. We also had a bottle of wine, and a dessert each. This is not a cheap restaurant, but it's well worth the money!!! It feels special, it's modern, great food, cool interior and very good service. We were very impressed and would highly recommend this to anyone who comes to Gdansk!More

Way too expensive for the experience you get. Especially if you go for the vegan/vegetarian options. Good service and nice atmosphere. However, the food does not make justice to the price. Not in amount nor in quality. Disappointing to say the least.
