After reading earlier comments we decided to try this place out. Maybe it was a bit wrong decision. It is much more expensive than the others, e.g 0,5l Tyskie beer costs 15 PLN. Normally you get it with 10PLN or less. Service was colder than the blowing wind in the evening. They add automatically +10% service cost to your bill.... More

I didn't know anything about this restaurant when I booked my reservation for a party of seven. I was a little nervous, taking charge of making a reservation for so many people, some of whom would entrust me in selecting a dining place for their last night in Gdansk. Well I was not disappointed! Everyone's meal was perfect and many... More

This pub/restaurant nestled just off The Long Market, in a side street south of the Green Gate. On this hot summer evening it was pleasant to site outside on the terrace on the street side for an evening meal and watch the world go by. A tasty piece of halibut was enjoyed with roast potatoes and veg all washed down... More

Perfect location. Had the place completely to ourselves, came in around 6-7 and stayed until closing. The best food during our stay!! Wild boar and steak. Very good, ample portion and cooked to perfection. The service was a little lacking, a few things we ordered we didn't get. And we were the only guests.... ... Other than that we had... More

Very tasty food, i got a plate full of vegetables - pepper with spinach, baked tomatoes with garlic, zuccini with mashrooms and potatoes. It was so much i couldnt finish. I loved the taste! The dessert was absolutely fantastic - almond mousse with white chocolate - heaven! The waiters were super nice. Total recommendation from me.

We were lucky enough to dine in here on new years eve and what a way to spend the last hours of 2015, the restaurant is wood panelled, starched linens and smartly dressed waiters, and you feel its been like that for 100 years, saying that the food is modern, classy, contemporary and thoroughly tasty, every single dish we had...

At the end of our amazing trip to Gdansk, this looked like the perfect last stop. The menu claims great traditional food served in a quiet swanky (in the 80's) restaurant... The food itself wasn't bad, but that with the pleasing aesthetics is not enough to go....... The service was slow. The chef refused to remove ginger from one of... More
