The Goldwasser Restaurant is a great place for a high quality and special meal. The wait staff was very professional and responded to all our needs. The starter was fried pierogi stuffed with meat and cheese. Next came the soup; lobster soup which so creamy...and tasty. We then had a palate cleanser of sour sorbet. The main course was wild boar which was so tender you did not need a knife. One has to try the Goldwasser vodka with gold flakes. So good. Nothing like you would find in the United States. And finally the dessert was cheesecake. Just a wonderful meal served by a professional staff. Congratulations to the chef for bringing such an outstanding meal.More

Goldwasser! WOW..I could just have ended the review here but hey..if you are hungry for more details then tag along. I will try not to bore you but be warned: this will be a somewhat lengthy review, even by my standards. Right by the Motlawa...river, on the Strip so to speak, you will find the historic and iconic restaurant "Goldwasser". Entering through the classy outdoor patio/dining area you will soon find yourself in the past of a dining extravaganza earlier reserved for the wealthy and pompous only, I guess. Snugged in over and under staircases and spread out through the length and height of this restaurant you will find all kind of cozy corners to be sitting and indulging in fine cuisine (se pictures). One can get a glimpse of the feeling how it must have been in the old days when dining out was not for everyone. Sitting on the second floor overviewing the hustle and bustle below the menus were handed out. Just by looking at their cover you knew straight away that these guys aren't messing around. Stylish and elegant, a fair amount of choices will stare you in the face whispering "Pick me..pick me". And so I picked, the 5 course Goldwasser Set Menu. To start off we went for a Rosé Prosecco from Valdobbiadene. Fruity, yet dry bubbly and cold. Yes, you guessed it. I didn't play hard to get. For the starter I had an Octopus Carpaccio, I have had both before but never combined in one dish. Magnificent. Pretty standard with olive oil and Parmigiano shavings, yet so special and well balanced, all in a thoughtful presentation. The kick here was the Spanish caper. And believe it or not.. I managed to save some of the Prosecco to "flush" it all down. The second course was a Lobster Cream Soup with a Lobster dumpling, homemade of course. Now, I know what it takes to extract those flavors out of the shells while cooking them for hours on end, then reducing the lot etc but it was just executed to perfection. And of course it was poured table side, service is not standing back at anything in this fine establishment. One could argue that the good old green garnish should have been sprinkled over the melting cream, but I would agree with the chef, if that indeed was his intention, that nothing should interfere with the purity of taste and presentation. To accompany this plate of flavor explosion our lovely waitress suggested a Chablis, a Chablis Domaine de Vauroux. Its mineral and acidic character momentarily become friends with me and my Lobster soup. Sadly, only I made it out alive from this battle:) To clear the pallet: passionfruit sorbet, a creamy flavor bomb. Absolutely loved it, but.. and this is my only but here (correct me if I am wrong), could have had a little less taste. Why do you complain, you might ask? Nooo..not complaining but a sorbet is supposed to clear the pallet and prepare it for new flavor experiences rather than being a top dog itself, if you catch my drift. But heck..absolutely loved it. Give me more! For the main course: Beef Tenderloin with potatoes and a small salad. Simple you say? Agreed. But the skill that went into the Bernaise and the truffle butter...I have tasted worse, to put it like that. The Bernaise was absolutely perfect. The right amount of acidity and its buttery and creamy consistency let me forget my lactose intolerance in an instance. The truffle butter had elegant flavors and melted on the Tenderloin. The salad had a slightly sweetish vinaigrette and that was it. Simple, but so important so it could balance some of the fat of the Bernaise and truffle butter. The potatoes, well, you know, they were potatoes but they tasted pretty darn good as well. The star of the show, however, was the Beef Tenderloin. I ordered medium and it was spot on. The nicely seared off crust held on to all the succulent moisture of the meat whilst cooked to perfection on the inside (see picture). Every time my knife easily cut of another piece I silently cried inside knowing that also this short friendship had to come to an end. It was an absolute dream, every bite a culinary joyride and I just wanted to put another dime in the slot and go for another round. To give the beef a friend along its final journey I let myself convince to indulge in an Australian Cabernet Sauvignon, from the Pensley Estate. This estate is run entirely by women, and I applaud the bottles etiquette showcasing just that. It was a Cabernet Sauvignon like you know it. Soft and round, bloomy and bold, yet so fragile when treated wrongly. At this stage I feel more like swearing than writing, the memories are still so vivid but alas, it all ended far too quickly. To round off this 5 course meal, I was served a white chocolate ball with mousse au chocolate and rhubarb. But wait, you won't see or taste it at first but as you approach the center of the white chocolate ball the pineapple jam finally but slowly made its entrance into the arena and boom... the show changed character. Chocolate and fruit has always been a match made in heaven when executed correctly but this was not just a perfect match but also elegantly and playful. Our waitress was so kind as to offer us a glass of Goldwasser, hence the name of this fine establishment. Goldwasser is a sweet liquor with 24 carat gold. Thats right.. gold! The realization that I got more money in my glass than in my bank account didn't bother me at all. Living a bosses life, what a meal, what a place! I was struck by a feeling of complete joy and satisfaction as I sucked in the moment reminiscing this fine meal. The Service Our waitress, Natalia, really brought her A-game. I guess it is probably fair to say that she does that every day, because she just was an amazing waitress. She was very knowledgeable about all the menu items, she served them in a timely and elegant fashion, she was smiling and friendly. Her wine recommendations were spot on and we had a little chat about food and wine as well. At one point she said that she gladly could get the Sommelier of the house, but I trusted her, and rightly so. She was the star of the dining room. I love when people take pride in their profession and she certainly did just that. At the end of our meal when all was said and done she got the chef to come to our table What a champ! I thanked him for his hard work and dedicaton, and I admire his skills and commitment to put up the best plate of food possible. The chef was so humble, friendly and smiling. What a star! Well, if you are still reading I will finish off with the verdict. Go to Goldwasser Restaurant and prepare for a wonderful meal in historic surroundings. The staff at the Goldwasser deliver the goods. And best of all, its amazing value for your money. Absolutely recommended!More

We decided to visit this amazing restaurant while on holidays through Gdansk. We were welcomed by Claudia who took care of our every need. From introduction of the menu, to wine selection and ordering, she was an amazing waitress. Highly recommend her to the management....The food was also great. One of the best restaurants we've been to. Please try the Angus Steak! All the staff were so professional and competent.More

The food, staff, drinks are really good. The steaks are clearly the best In Gdańsk. I recommend this place for anyone travelling to Gdańsk. There is no long wait for the food and everything came at perfect time. The prices are in reason for the...food we got. We went to a lot of restaurants in Gdańsk and GoldWasser is clearly the best. Cheers to Tomasz and Claudia for an awesome service, they deserve a raise.More

We came across this lovely restaurant early on during our trip to Gdansk and had breakfast there on two occasions. They have a lovely choice of 4 'set' breakfast menus. They range from 'healthy' option (fruit, yogurt and much more) to the more traditional. All...options are beautifully presented. This restaurant is located right beside the water in one of the nicest locations in the city. We also had dinner there on two occasions. The extensive menu included steak and a great choice of seafood. Portions were large and there was an excellent drinks menu. Despite the extremely busy time of your with guests coming and going the staff were friendly, efficient and attentive. On one of our dinner nights we were celebrating our anniversary and a birthday. The head waiter came out with a beautiful surprise dessert lit up and complimentary drinks. Totally unexpected and unnecessary but a nice surprise. This place is a must if you're ever in Gdansk.More

Food was good but you are paying for the location. Staff were efficient. I had the king prawn starter which was excellent. My partner had soup which was good. We both had the chateaubriand which was good but overpriced. Main concern was social distancing as...tables are very close together and nothing to suggest tables or chairs were being hygienically cleaned. Or we would have stayed for desert and coffee.More
