“In the heart of Gdansk”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

This restaurant is easy to find. Located just near Neptun on Dluga street. However you have to go down 1 level below ground. Very small local so it is a little bit airless and you can also feel smell of the food. This is not good. Prices are average. Food was OK but nothing special. Service was kind. I don't think I will come back over there.

“Lovely food, well priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

Dining at 9pm on a cold December evening, we were delighted to step down into the warm and welcoming cellar that is Velvetka. It is only a small venue and numerous groups were later turned away as it was full.
We had 2 local specialty starters, an excellent herring dish and buckwheat pancakes which were light and fresh.
A huge keilbassa main was exceptional while the peirogi were very good too.
English speaking service + menu, decent drinks choice, very much recommended.

“Great food and prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Traveling from Canada and first time in Gdansk, we venture into Velevetka restaurant after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to check it out.

We ordered a plate of trout and a plate of ribs and both dishes were excellent. Portions of the dishes were perfect. Everything taste excellent, but I would recommend the fish over the ribs.

The server was nice, and when ask for recommendation I like the fact that she wasn't selecting the most expensive dish.

The only critique I have is rather subjective. We generally prefer local beer, and did find the beer list little on the short side.

Definitely we would go back.

“Great food, grat place in great city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

During our visit in Gdańsk we decided to visit Velevetka for diner - it was spontaneous decision - no reviews checked before.
Few tables outside was been free, but because we was together with our 5 Year old doughter we decide to go inside - there all tables was been free - two reserved.
We order some food, and I'm more than sure (that why I won't tell You what was been ordered :) ) so You will be not disappointed :).
Service was nice, but waiting time for dish was been just a little too long. Prices for Długa street in Gdańsk at reasonable level.
It is the place which I will visit when next time in Gdańsk.
