This is not a budget establishment. The food and service are all fine and there are many choices of seafood and other items. On the menu there are some dishes recommended and served to some famous persons, including presidents, ministers and even the Pope. With the low price level in Poland, however, such fine dining menu is still way cheaper... More

We spent there very nice evening with german friends. Staff was very friendly and explained them every position in menu so they could choose one of popular polish dishes. After nice dinner it`s nice to go for a walk at the old town.

Excellent food, and the interior was like visiting some renaissance palace. Despite this staff was not overly formal, and the atmosphere was quiet and sophisticated. Nice experience.

This place is certainly one of the best restaurants I've been to for a while. The food is very well prepared, and the whole atmosphere in the restaurant gives you a feeling of being back in the 20's. You will spend a lot of money here, but it is well worth it.

beautiful royal ancient restaurant where celebrities and Pope ate!. Prices mid tohigh but worth the expereince. Fascinating interrior and professional service with one person opening the door, other giving you dishes, other taking paltes away, one tsakes your jackets, other greets. It was crazy. The walls are full of art pieces and ancient furniture. Luxury experience for quite affordable price.

Just a simply beautiful and breathtaking place. The level of customer service was absolutely wonderful. The meal I had was definitely one of the best ones I've ever enjoyed. A glass of Goldwasser at the end of the meal...just perfect. It's very hard to describe the place by writing, you just simply has to visit it. What an experience!

We were a group of 41 people from the U.S., England, Poland and Sweden looking for a good restaurant in Gdansk the day before our son’s wedding. We had several requests for special /children meal and other arrangements. Damian Robakowski at Pod Lososiem Restaurant was a great help to find solutions and proposing menu alternatives. We were communicating by e-mail... More

Unusualness of this place is proven by its history, which is connected with Gdansk so much, that still on the foreign tours itinerary, there is a stop on Szeroka Street with short story about the Gdansk vodka - Goldwasser.
Dutch Mennonite Ambrosius Vermoolen, after he had been given the Gdansk citizenship, in year 1598 he launched the alcohol distillery, which he named "Der Lachs" - the salmon. Since then, this fish, being the symbol of happiness and prosperity, has signed all the products of this tasting room. "Goldwasser" became the most popular product made in his small factory.
The dispensing of spicy vodka with swirling little pieces of 22-carats gold, had been kept in the strictest secrecy for ages, and told from generation to generation. The liquor, as a Gdansk brand article, was served on European courts. It was one of the favorites alcohols of Tsarina Catharine II.
The historical chronicles in the following ages, mention the names of further generations - successors of the secret dispensing: Bestvater, Henrichsdorf, Marwitz and Wundichow. In the present time, the successor in law, and the possessor of the original dispensing is Graf von Hardenberg, the owner of Hardenberg-Wilthen AG liqueur factory in Germany.
The Gdansk tasting room and restaurant "Pod Łososiem" had been famous for ages, as the place full of extreme collection of jewels, paintings and furniture. Unfortunately, the ravages of Second World War did not omit Szeroka Street. Tenement-house was destroyed during the blitz, but the collections survived.
In 1976 the "Pod Łososiem" restaurant was re-opened. It has been being managed for over a quarter of a century The Robakowski's Family, who estimate the proper value of tradition of this place.
