tolles Fotomotiv, vor allem bei Sonnenschein und von der gegenüberliegenden Seite, aber auch ein kurzer Blick nach "innen" lohnt sich, wenn man das bedeutende Wahrzeichen von Danzig verstehen möchte.great photo opportunity, especially when the sun shines, and from the opposite side, but also a quick look "inwards" worth, if you want to understand the important landmark of Gdańsk.show original

Krzysztof PołećAim! We encouraged the opinions on google. The SCANDAL is also tipped to receipt, without informing the client. As always we verify receipt, we asked the waitress, and showed us that in the menu at the very end, small letters it says that the scenery for the service, which is disappointing. Hardly anyone will read the menu about this tribute, who will check the paragon, and tourists from abroad already does. Steal from tourists in broad daylight. Always leave a tip, but not when trying to us brazenly Rob. Waitresses are the case, service slow, apparently have a lot of work and guests, and together with us they were 4 tables on the 2 waitresses. Prices of dishes to be inadequate. £ 17 for the cookie, which in the dessert shop costs 3zl and most restaurants 10-12zl. A vegetarian dish with vegetables for over 20zl, where there was nothing but a handful of uparowanych vegetables. This snap-in not even describe. Spare ribs for 36zl, tasteless and not seasoned, with a few potatoes the size of a walnut. Zurek is a Cook unless you saw on tv. A meal without taste, too expensive. We entered the mega hungry, and we walked out of there angry, of 200 PLN for 4 people lighter, and still a little hungry.show original
