Fantastic service throughout the evening. Delicious carpaccio and a risotto worthy any Italian gourmet restaurant. Be careful with the tasty raspberry schnapps, malinowka, you easily drink to many of them!

The starters where top class and our waiter recommended perfect wines for the dishes. Best service so far in Gdańsk. The fish was a bit salty but we got a new piece without problems and joked that if food is over salted just means the...chef is in love. Warmly recommended!!More

Kind staff with good service and a nice place. However the food was dry and didnt taste very much. I wasnt asked how I liked my meat and the fish only tasted like frying oil unfortunately. Expensive for the quality of food. 2,5/5.

Daughter and I are outside and each had the fillet ( Beef Tenderloin). Cooked to perfection.. espresso martini also very good! Only thing I didn’t like was that a substantial tip was included in bill, which they don’t tel you- … bill for two was...388 zloty (which had a 30 zloty “ service charge”), and I gave 400. No change returned or receipt. Not a big deal, but just left a bad taste in my mouth.More

The service is unmatched in Gdańsk, the waiters are friendly and kind, really a welcoming and warm experience. They checked on us during the food many times and they were just super accommodating, remembering that I had mentioned that I was coming straight from the...Aiport when I made my booking. The food was amazing. The scallops were the best scallops I’ve ever had, portion size was small but completely worth it. The 15 month Argentinean red wine was so smooth and really easy to drink. The bread and chive oil to begin the meal was also such a beautiful touch. The traditional polish meat dishes and fish were full of flavours and beautifully presented. At the end we got a complimentary drink which was lovely. All round a great experience, I wouldn’t go to Gdańsk without going here!More

Absolutely the best restaurant in Gdansk. Every time we come here, we are guaranteed to have an amazing experience and top quality food and wine with outstanding service. The carpaccio was superlative as was the main course. Highly recommended

Very enjoyable evening and lovely food, visited with my son and his partner, he is currently living in Gdańsk and visits this restaurant often. Lovely atmosphere and great food, service was a bit slow but maybe that’s the norm here, food was amazing and a...great selection of wines, but very expensive, cost around £270 for four people, only 3 had starters and no one had desserts, I would recommend though if you don’t mind the expenseMore

Don’t see any reason why not but not sure the menu is suitable for a 5 year old child. E mail the restaurant for advice.
