We were recommended this restaurant by a Polish friend and it didn't disappoint. Amazing staff who were very attentive and knowledgeable. The lamb two ways was amazing and the salmon was equally as good. Live music whilst we ate was good and not too loud....A real chilled atmosphere. Cannot recommend highly enough. This was the highlight of our trip.More

Called in with friends intending just to have a drink. So glad we did. Looked at the menu and decided to order and the food was exceptional. Lobster soup starter, potato dumplings and burger mains, cheesecake dessert like I’ve never had before. If you don’t...want run of the mill food this is the place to come. This chef certainly has new ideas and they all work. Great staff and service, many thanks to Sara who looked after us throughout. Great place to visit if you are wanting a great meal.More

Really nice place to have a dinner. A bit aside from the main street with tourist traps. Excellent service, both in Polish and English. Enjoyed the live music.

Would have given more stars for the Bouillabaisse, it was VERY DELICIOUS. But my friend ordered a burger, was told there was no burgers and afterwards we watched burgers served at the next table. UNACCEPTABLE. The Kulbin, which the waiter knew was a fish, was...delicious, unfortunately the orzo was not warm anymore. Not recommendable as one of the top restaurants in Gdansk.More

Delicious food. We had the soft shell crab to start followed by salmon. It was served with a sharing plate of chips, potato and salad. Beautifully presented and tasted incredibly.

A disappointing and very expensive meal for what we got. The food was ok even though they were sold out of many things on the menu and that was at 7:00 pm. But what I objected to most was the service. The waitress asked if...we were interested in trying a Polish Pinot Noir wine and we agreed. Foolish us as it was 80 euros a bottle. At that price she should have definitely been more professional in presenting and explaining the wine. The whole eating experience was rushed, unfriendly, and expensive. Normally, I think Trip Advisory gets it right, but not this time.More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and I am glad that it was. I had to book a day a day ahead. The staff were friendly and the food amazing. The wine list was extensive and I was helped in my choice...(which probably meant I spent more but it was worth it). I started with the Roe Deer Tartar which was light and delightful and followed this with the lamb which was possibly one of the best lamb dishes I have experienced. The accompanying samosa was delicious. No it wasn’t cheap but boy what an experience and what a treat.More

One of the best experiences this year. We visited many restaurants this year, some of them were Michelin star's restarants, but this one is one of the absolut top. Very tasty and inventive food. Very friendly staff. Friendly to meat lovers as well as vegetarians...like me.More
