The food at Canis was decent but not overwhelming. At the time of our visit, the restaurant was so warm we had to ask to be seated outside. The restaurant also had live music, which might be good to be aware of especially if you...are sensitive to high volumes or background noise. The staff were friendly, and the wine was good. However, since the meal did not really stand out for us we would probably not pay a revisit. This is why I give the restaurant a score of "average".More

Found this restaurant by chance, great local and international food. All fresh and a great choice, food was as good as most fine dining I have done. Great vegetarian options (which apart from pizza and pasta I have found hard to find in Poland). Menu...has a nice selection, the burgers looked great, but I would try other things as you can get burgers elsewhere. We tried some lovely polish wine (they need to offer more choice of polish wines they are great) and the chocolate cake was to die for. Price was good for this type of restaurant, and at least half the price you would pay in London. Highly recommend this place, if you are spending a few days in Gdańsk (also go to the ww2 museum- one of the best museum I have been to - restaurant on 4th floor has the best views and will let you just order coffee if that’s all you want). The staff are excellent, know their stuff but not in your face.More

I Went here with my Mother and Sister. It was our last dinner before leaving for home the next morning. My Sister has severe gluten and egg allergy and we Kindly asked about food options for her. They could not serve the hamburger without the...bread (which is the easiest thing in the world to remove) so we ended up Having to take one of the most expensive dishes on the menu, and had to pay full price even tho we removed the sauce. I also took that dish and I got one small table spoon of sauce that hardly was enough for 3 bites of the Meat and definitely not enough to cover both veggies and 2 kind of potatoes so we asked for more sauce. Another spoon full of sauce came. Before the food even came and we were given a table (we had booked a table earlier that night) the table did not even have enough glasses or cutlery even tho they knew several hours before that we were coming. They also said it was impossible to book a table at 19 (so we had to book 19.30) but when we came 19.30 the restaurant was only halfway full. There was also a singer with a band Who sang so loud you would think he was inside the toilet with you when you were there. We asked for water and the winelist. It took 30 mins for it to arrive and we even had to remind the waitress Who seemed very passive aggessive. They had even forgot to put some wines in the cooler so they asked my Mother if she wanted to wait a bit longer for her choice of wine.20.30 our food finally came...one hour after we ordered. Totally unacceptable! The food was delicious tho so no complaints there but when we finally paid we also had to pay for tap water, service charge and my 1 table spoon of extra sauce... Do yourself a favour and go some where else with better service. Such a pity since the food was very deliciousMore

Food was nice (not great) and thats all I can say in favor. Waiting for food is awfully long, not to mention that waiter forgets about things you ordered. Place is crowded, noisy, there is no way you can have a normal conversation without shouting....I really cant understand where are all those good reviews coming from. I’ve experienced better restaurants. For the first time in long long years I didn’t leave the tip. But the food was nice. Nice, not great. And please throw away that round table close to the window, its really not comfotable to sit on the edge, trying to be closer to your partner, just to hear what he’s saying. And it’s ustable - especially when you need to cut a steak with a knife that’s not supposed to be used for cutting a medium steak. You were all really nice during making all those mistakes. But I like when waiter knows what he’s doing, I’m not a fan of being apologised to after the mistake.More

Excellent food, tastes were very diverse and the wine accompanied well. Great 5 star food/drinks experience… Never experienced such a pushy service which made us not ordering as much as we would usually do… we did not get the chance to properly look the menu...card, some items were not available anymore and the waitress was suggesting other dishes/wines without giving any chance to make own decision… had to wait for an hour until the starters were served. The place was not full at all… Live music was also right next to us, which made it hard it have a conversation during diner.More

One of the best restaurant experiences I’ve had. The service was incredible with staff that knew everything there was to know about costumer service. First off all we got tips on all of the dishes for a three course dinner, with genuine interest in how...the dishes would complement each other and how we could choose to get a bottle of wine that would be amazing with all of it. We had continuous refills of wine, questions on satisfaction and water refills etc and felt really taken care of. When we realized we were almost last to leave we, instead of feeling rushed off, felt like we were welcome to stay forever. And off course the dinner was absolutely stunning! As a vegetarian I was so happy to find the chef had really thought the dish through with finess. All and all it was an amazing night. Thank you for this!More
