A quiet little restaurant with friendly staff and food that far exceeded my expectations for its price tag.

By far the most romantic restaurant in Gdansk. Cozy lit, relaxed atmosphere and live music on the weekends. Nice contrast to the overly-lit, scandinavian inspired design restaurants in Gdansk. Food was really good. We had a beautiful cheese plate and meat plate which we really enjoyed. We ended up returning few times for drinks.

Good food, good service and nice cold polish beer - served with a hot polish sandwich - just top! This place is a little out of the long street (Dluga) but just one block away from the crowd.

Popped in here twice over the course of a weekend in Gdansk. 1st very late on the Friday night. The place was busy but the staff were happy for us to take a table just for drinks despite them still serving food. Nice decor, good selection of drinks, friendly polite service and some live music to boot. Popped in again... More

After walking around for what felt like miles we wanted a coffee break. From the outside it looks so welcoming, it didn't disappoint inside with friendly staff and comfy seating. Coffee was delicious and certainly did the trick.

Ambience was cosy, service was good and food was tasty. I had the mushroom soup which was v diff from the usual creamy soup. V unique and would recommend it. Also had the duck with potatoes and raspberry sauce. Tasty but the sauce was a tad too sweet.

We called in for late afternoon drinks as it was getting chilly. Our order of black tea with cherry vodka and the local hot honey drink with cinnamon and cloves soon warmed us up and we were on the verge of reconsidering our choice of somewhere to eat that evening when we saw food being delivered to nearby tables.

This is a modern bistro type restaurant - we stopped here for lunch on our day in Gdansk. There is a nice terrace where you can sit outside. The service was friendly but very slow (probably because of the many tourists, so really not their fault). We found the food just a little above average but prices were very affordable.
