Great location and a beautiful interior was the start of my love affair with this restaurant. Sitting down we were treated to great service by very professional and friendly staff. The menu appeared quite short, but what I sampled was cooked to perfection, and when the waitress suggested the salad was big enough for a main and not a starter... More

You can't visit Gdańsk and not stopping by Mon Balsac. Great vibe, good music and most important, the best seafood plate i've ever had!

Delicious food. Exceptional service. Romantic ambiance. Thumbs Up. We decided to eat dinner there 2 times in just 4 days stay in Gdańsk. This place has its charm.

We went for a break in the old town and landed here with good appetizer, polite staff and good drinks and beers with the big church close upon us.

We got here rather by accident as we initially wanted to have dinner by the river. Never mind the river though - the food here absolutely compensates for that. Contrarily to what the name indicates, the food isn't actually French, but mostly inspired by Italian cuisine and food trends. The staff is friendly and the place inside is a bit... More

I thought this place was so good I went three times during my visit to gdansk. For breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was open late, at 10pm so it saved my girlfriend and I as we were famished when we arrived late in the evening. The food was delicious, very inexpensive, quick and the service was friendly. We went for... More

Not immediately at the river, as such a much more quiet place. Delicious food, cosy environment, will visit again when back in Gdansk.

Mon Balzac has wonderful food and is in a great location, in old town and just off the main boulevard. The menu choices were enticing and the staff so friendly. We ended up eating here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner, something we try not to do on vacation. We were disappointed in a few other top recommended... More
