Absolutely superb, the food was really fabulous, delicious flavours, really well cooked, great veggie, vegan, fish and other options. Had meringue for pudding with cream and fruit and that was amazing, great selection of beer and wine as well. All round really brilliant food and...drink, however the absolutely best thing about this restaurant was the service, we were looked after by Alexandrea who was fantastic, if we could award 10⭐️we would, thank you.More

This place is so delicious. Shame that it’s located further from the old town area, but you can expect really great tastes. I was there just for the lunch but I hope next time to have more time to check their wine list too.

We arrived at the Solidarity Centre after not having found a place for lunch, and we were pleasantly surprised to find this lovely sit-down restaurant. The classy but warm and inviting atmosphere complimented the delicious taste of the fresh meal which was as attractive as...it was scrumptious. The service was also very good (especially considering the fact that it was a museum restaurant). Seriously wish museums in the U.S. would have as satisfying of restaurants with great service and food. Would highly recommend independently of the museum as well as a pleasant addition to an afternoon of moving history.More

Conveniently placed inside of the European Centre of Solidarnosc serves cold food, overly salted and simply not tasty... For higher than a medium price that you would expect for this kind of place. If you can go and find another place somewhere nearby do not...even hesitate unless you are already starving in here.More

Unbelievable. If you want a coffee on its own, be prepared for horrible service and lack of manners. I think they expect you to order a 3 course meal in here. Beware of the short waitress with blonde hair and with an even shorter temper....Rude.More

This restaurant is in the Solidarnosc Centre, but you can walk in off the street and visit the restaurant without a ticket for the (excellent) exhibition. It is, however, about 15 minutes walk out of town to reach it. There is also a nice cafe...at the Centre with great cake, this is a more formal restaurant with reasonably expensive menu options. There was only one other table occupied when we visited for lunch. The service is efficient and extremely friendly, the food is delicious, portions generous and they were very helpful with accommodating food intolerances (and changed the amuse bouche for me). There were one or two vegetarian options; their specifically is fish. We broke off half way round the exhibition to have lunch (there is no problem doing this, you just present your ticket again at the escalator for re-entry). As much as we enjoyed our lunch and no criticism of the restaurant, it felt a bit incongruous to be hearing in the exhibition about the hardship caused by rising food prices one minute and then downstairs to this pricey restaurant - an odd decision by the Centre.More

We walked in dying for a coffee before going round the Solidarity museum and while it was still lunchtime (well late lunchtime), this was absolutely no problem. The lovely waitress was a great up-seller and convinced us we should have cake to go with the...coffee, I love being sold to (when done with integrity) and we were absolutely delighted she persuaded us. It was delicious!More

We popped in for a snack after visiting the Solidarnosc museum expecting the usual cafe. Instead it was a lovely restaurant. We came late (14.30) and only wanted something small - it was no problem for them. All four us had the baked beetroot puree...soup. Delicious! We'll be back for a full meal next time we're passing.More

Having spent the morning at the WW2 museum, we thought we would grab a bite before the Solidarity museum. The Amber Side looked to be more of a commitment than we wanted, so we walked around the neighborhood. Nothing. Returning to the restaurant we were...met by the polite waitress who seemed unphased by our English. We ordered a ravioli to split, which is likely unusual, but she accommodated. She brought a cold fish starter, which was terrific. Then the ravioli came. Delicious! Fresh made pasta with butter/ wine sauce. Three was fine for our afternoon snack. We did not have the courage to use the buttermilk provided. We stayed longer than we expected, but a great place to refresh and recharge before the next museum.More

We had a simple soup-pasta lunch but it was enhanced by little touches like pea-shoots which you normally find only in Michelin-starred restaurants!

We visited the Solidarity Center on a holiday weekend, and looked far and wide for a restaurant near there, but found nothing. So we were happy (and famished) when we entered the Solidarity Center and found this restaurant. The space is bright and inviting and...the service is good. The food is good and inventive. I would recommend this restaurant even if you don't visit the Solidarity Center (but visit it, it's awesome!).More

Excellent place to eat when you visit the Solidarity Museum. We sat down for a light lunch and were surprised by the food and the service. Prices are mid-high, but that is to be expected from a touristic-style restaurant. Recommended if you visit the museum.
