  • Good food and location, tips are already included in the bill.
  • Good food, good price, will come back.
  • Ciekawe miejsce warte zobaczenia.
  • Tasty food 🍲 🍴 good customer service, nice panorama.
  • Nice place and good location can give a false impression that we can solidly there to eat, the more that high prices to justify. Nothing could be more wrong. Pierogi ruskie dumplings were cebulowo-bulb number 5 for only 2 dyszki, chips are simply frozen, chicken was watery. To use apparently przeszkadzaliśmy, because it was simply opryskliwa. Time provide meals was not pathetic, it was simply ridiculous. I do not recommend anyone upsetting that one of the best locations in Gdansk it takes such a place.
