I usually skip fancy restaurants, especially when I travel abroad, for at least three reasons: small meals, high - often unjusty - prices and embarrasing atmosphere, too calm for my soul. And sometimes a tie is required I never wear being on a holiday. But, in Gdansk, Urszula and I had a special occasion. We celebrated next anniversary of our marriage. That's why after a walk around pretty renovated and amazing 17th century country manor we ended up in Dwor Oliwski restaurant. The portions were not small, prices were much lower than in any fancy restaurant in, say, Germany, France or the USA. But, the atmpsphere was, indeed, too "aristocratic" to take pictures of meals without being confused.
The 2-floor building with an attic under a red-tiled, gabled roof stands alone at the entrance to the property. In the beginning I didn't figure out that there is a restaurant inside. There is only a modest, small sign by the entrance door. Well, the top quality does not need any advertisement, right?
We were seated by a large, round table in the first room to the right. The light interiors with large windows and doors follow the wealthy style of the 17th century country manor. There are at least three, a bit different, large rooms on the two restaurant floors.
Our waiter was fast and perfect, maybe a bit too serious :-). He knew everything about the food and drinks served. He asked us about some details of what we wanted to order. It's still not common in Polish restaurants where a waiter rarely ask any questions to a consumer. There were some French and English speaking consumers next tables and they were served in their languages.
Favorite Dish: The menu contains both French, Italian and Polish meals.
We had first class, as usual in Poland, Polish Zurek (16 zl) and silky cream of yellow chanterelle mushroom (18 zl). Then we ordered Italian tagliatelli (18 zl) and ravioli with spinach (22 zl) which tasted great, almost as well as those unforgettable pastas we had in Valeggio sul Mincio, Italy, during the Euro VT-meeting.
We ended up with two delicious deserts: tiramisu and hot chocolate Moelleux cake in coffee sauce and vanilla ice cream. Yummy... and they had to liven me up, so that I took pictures of them. We paid (add wine, cofee, water and a tip) 150 zl (?1 = 4 zl) - not that bad as for so fancy place, right?
