Where to Eat in Gdansk: The Best Restaurants and Bars

January 31, 2018 Concepcion Newsome

One of Poland’s most beautiful cities, Gdansk, on the Baltic Sea, has played major roles in history, especially in the 20th-century. It was the 1939 flash point of World War II, and then in 1980, the birthplace of the Solidarnosc labor movement, ushering the end of Communist domination in Eastern Europe. Gdansk’s Old Town, painstakingly reconstructed to its Hanseatic League glory after being leveled in World War II, is a highlight. The 14th-century Town Hall houses the city’s historical museum.

Pierogarnia Mandu - Oliwa

Reviewed By Jubes89 - Cheltenham, United Kingdom

A really great menu with plenty of options. I had the hot wine, chicken and cheese perogis with honey mustard, and gherkin soup. My partner had tomato soup and fried tofu perogis (which was great as they have options for vegetarians) the soup was delicious - my perogis were over seasoned but I think I just made a bad choice. The service was good - would go back!

Interesting combinations of ingredients and superb presentation. Lamb was a highlight for me. Not cheap by Polish standards but for the standard of dining it was excellent value. Will visit again.

Prologue Restaurant & Bar

Reviewed By BillMancs - Manchester, United Kingdom

After Reading good reviews we decided to try this restaurant near to our hotel. It was very busy but they found us a table (should have booked) and the service was both friendly and attentive.
Menu is not massive as everything is made to order, but it was up to International standard and my goats cheese starter was one of the best I’ve had anywhere.
Not cheap but at £50 a head with a nice bottle of French wine, wasn’t a bad evening. Recommended

Restauracja Winne Grono

We established our restaurant out of a passion for combining flavors. We add a French twist to a modern and meticulous approach to Polish cuisine, leaving out the frogs and snails. Winne Grono (Fertile Vine) seeks to revitalize classic cooking. As to our wines, we import most of them directly from the producer to provide our guests with affordable prices and the best quality.

Went there for a late lunch. Place is beautiful. Looks like a cave, really nice! Service excellent. They care about the people. Owner came to say hi, spoke Spanish to me on top Food was great. Menu is a bit more Asian than expected but the quality is just great! Beautiful combination of different tastes, again a bit Asian style but really good.
Risotto with a kind of curry was beautiful. Grilled gambas as appetizer excellent and my pasta with lamb great. Very tasty and good portions.
Wine selection was also really good! Lot of really good wine there! Actually one of the best, if not the best in terms of wine selection.
We’ll come back and I would definitely recommend it.

Reviewed By Jamie C - Norwich, United Kingdom

Visited for a late lunch today. Even though it was past the usual lunch time it was still very busy and throughout our visit there was a constant flow of people coming in. Service was fantastic, all the staff appeared to work hard and put the effort in with the customers. We were mainly served by anita and gosta (hope i got that right!). They were brilliant. We had a set of chicken dumplings and a set if sweet apple dumplings. Both were brilliant. Really good atmosphere and price wise it is very reasonable. If your in gdansk i think you have to go to mandu!!
