We chose this restaurant knowing nothing about it but we were tired and it was not busy. In fact there were only 4 other customers. The food was fine in fact good but oh dear the service was shocking. We were seated but very quickly it started to rain when we asked to move inside we were told we couldn't... More

We chose some meals from lunch menu posted by entrance. But we got at the table from the service the regular menu only, the lunch menu only upon request. After a while we got finally the meals: cold soup chlodnik was excellent, bigosz as a main course was good. The surprise at the end - 10% for service charged automatically... More

Went with my partner - we started outside but moved swiftly inwards with the rain. The food was absolutely outstanding - had the salmon dumplings to start, cod and halibut for main. Cooked to perfection. Also lovely live pianist playing behind the bar added to the atmosphere. Service was fine - yes they add 10% to the bill but for... More

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
