"Czerwone Drzwi" means a red door in Polish. This restaurant is my recommendation for an average (I mean not low) budget visitor who wants to taste delicious Polish food in stylish interiors in the heart of Gdansk old town, nearby the world's largest brick Mariacki church.
Although both Urszula and I were not very hungry we decided to eat something. At first we wanted to seat on a porch/terasse but it was getting cold. So, we passed through the red door to enter stylish and a bit snobish interior of the restaurant which gave us a nostalgic feeling of the middle-class interior of the past ages. We were seated close a one hundred year old piano from Copenhagen.
The waiter and his service was perfect. He knew everything on food served and gently convinced us to order more than we were going to at the beginning. The food is served on genuine china. It's neither cheap nor one of the very expensive restaurants, I usually skip. We paid with drinks, tax and a tip 80 zl (20 euros). Soups cost 8 - 15 zl, the main dishes 14 - 39 zl.
Favorite Dish: The menu contains Polish, Russian and Italian meals.
Urszula wanted fish. First she asked the waiter about roasted salmon with apple. He recommended speciality of the chief: trout with herbs roasted in an oven and served with boiled and roasted potatoes (28 zl). Urszula ordered it together with lettuce salad with salmon marinated in white wine. Although I am not a fan of fish (especially in Poland) I have to admit that it was the best trout I ever tasted, the salad was delicious as well.
I had two traditional Polish meals:
- borsch - beetroot soup with ravioli,
- dumplings with veal and mushrooms.
The waiter warned me that the soup is served very hot just like it should be. It tasted so great that I asked the waiter what they had added to the soup to achieve a bit sour but delicate and unique flavour and taste. He called the chief of cousine who informed us that they added some local herbs and some kinds of sour apples.
The dumplings were boiled and then a bit panfried on a butter and tasted great as usual in Poland :-).
