The trip to the Eliksir restaurant was a surprise for my birthday and a very nice taste experience - a special place with an exceptionally attentive and cultured staff. Only the car that picked us up was an aging taxi; I expected something nicer from Mr. Shuttle. On the way back, a Mercedes bus picked us up, that was okay - both drivers were very nice and the second had to wait for us for a while in front of the restaurant and didn't charge a (!) Surcharge. Very obliging. Overall a really nice evening.

Delightful tour. Marek was my tour guide. He had a lot of knowledge of the city and the food presented. Even though I was late for the tour, Marek was patient through out it and answered every question I had. Highly recommended.

We were extremely happy with Elwira as our guide. The tour was super informative and all the major sights of Gdansk were covered on the tour. The food was delicious! Make sure to come hungry though as there is lots to try :)

Very nice food and equally nice cocktails recommend it. There is a 5 course taster option but I did the three course one and think it was better as you could pick your dishes and cocktails.

We liked it very much and we had a great and very interesting time with Kaja! We can highly recommend the food tour with an additional guide tour through Gdansk!
