The Best Places to Eat in Gdansk, Poland

Come for the pierogis, stay for the upscale atmosphere! We had some of the best food on our trip to Gdansk. Service was always kind and helpful (not something you find everywhere), and food prices were perfectly reasonable, especially knowing we were in the heart of the tourist center, at the height of tourist season. Come hungry, but know that you won’t stay that way!

After a long day of travel and a long, cobble stone walk around Gdansk Old Town to stay awake, we needed something hearty to help us through the end of the day. We made a dash through the rain with one goal in mind: Pierogis! This little restaurant in the heart of the old city was amazing, and the pierogis were absolutely the star. Steve ordered the meat pierogis (chef’s selection of meat–not sure exactly what was in there!), and I chose the Signature Pierogi sampler, and we shared. They may be small individually, but all together, they made for two hearty meals!

Winiarnia Literocka

This was one fancy meal for us! We stumbled upon this place for a late lunch one afternoon, and it was one of the best meals I think I’ve ever had. Polish fare is hearty, even in summertime, so we came hungry but left full. The fresh bread was delicious (especially the sweet one with raisins and apples!), and every bite of our entrees was flavorful and beautiful. I highly recommend this one for your trip!

Restauracja Republika

One thing I absolutely loved about Gdansk was the plethora of sidewalk cafes on just about every street. We don’t dine outside enough in the United States, in my opinion! We ate lunch at this place by the river, and we had some of the best pizza here. Steve’s had pear slices and a variety of cheeses on it, and I got the classic margherita.
