The atmosphere was nice, cool steel tables. However, I was unpleasantly surprised by the food. Not too tasty, and horrible marmite sauce. I'd recommend it for drinks, but not for eating.

This place serves as a good café as well as a proper restaurant for dinner. I Went there with some friends just to have some good mulled wine whilst enjoying the nice atmosphere that fits well into the surrounding Old Town. I could see that there was a lot of locals having dinner, which is a guarantee that it's good... More

We just dropped there for dinner, it looked nice from outside. Very limited choice of dishes (long menu but many restrictions to breakfast or lunch). Very slow service even if there were only 4 tables to serve. The mushrooms soup was very thin, bread was served after our request and reached the table cold (from the fridge?) and when the... More

This restaurant made a rather bad first impression for Gdansk in to a good one. The service was great, the food was light and amazing, and the wine was heavenly

We had a great lunch in this restaurant. I ate a delicious chicken salad with a great, fresh pineapple slice. My son ate a chicken pasta and my husband a fish soup as starter and a tuna portion as main course. The cheesecake as dessert was a bity too dry but the chocolade cake was much better. I really loved... More

We tried to book this restaurant before our trip to Gdansk due to the good reviews but could not find an email address. Fortunately once we were there we easily found it and went in one evening just for a drink. It is beautiful inside with live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. The staff are very welcoming and... More

We just stepped in with without looking it up on TripAdvisor. The resultant was dark and cozy, there were just 2 other couples here, but the service was still slow. I ordered the fish soup and got a really bad stomach.

Had some drinks here on a Saturday night - 500 ml carafe of wine 44zl. Seems to be a popular spot in town. Live music when we were in - two guys doing covers of Oasis, Red Hot Chilli Peppers etc.
