After reading good reviews on TripAdviser we tried to have a dinner in Velevetka. It was late and we were tired after a long trip and TripAdviser said that this place is still open. However, THERE WAS NO SUCH RESTAURANT AT ALL. So, be cautious!!

Food was absolutely amazing. Good portions, good price, good service. Lambsrack was the only dissapointing thing, it was a bit tough, but good taste. Take the regional specialties they are amazing.

I ate in Velevetka last night after Googling the best place in Gdansk to try Bigos (a traditional Polish meal). I was very impressed with the food and the service was great! The meal was a little bit more expensive than what I had been paying at other restaurants in Gdansk but it was still cheap compared to the UK.... More

I had a lovely time enjoying a very tasty meal while watching the beautiful old town. The restaurant has a nice balcony, which makes eating there very enjoyable. I had zurek, a delicious Polish soup made with rye, sausages, and served with hard-boiled egg, and a portion of pierogi (aka Polish dumplings) with various fillings. The portions were quite big,...

This is a small place right in old town. We ate sitting outside watching the people and activities. Their combination plate of different pierogis was terrific.

My wife and I had dick and pork ribs and the dishes were both magnificent. The service was wonderful and the outdoor seating provided a panorama of entertainment. I can highly recommend Velveteka for bot food, service and location. We would go again.

This is a small place, but the food is wonderful and the waiters are very friendly and helpful. We had a dinner in the evening and we liked the food so much that we came back next day for lunch. For even better experience choose to sit outside, you will get a great view of the Neptune and the buzz... More
