I often go to hard rock, but it's the first time I've found such a promotion! for what you eat the price is very low, then the quality is the usual hard rock. no difficulty in presenting the voucher, the waiters were aware of the promo. highly recommended

Oh my it’s indescribable. We had lots of fun. We even asked them to play our preferred music. The staff were nice and they spoke English during our cruise. I would definitely take the cruise again with them if i had to go back

An ideal attraction for children and adults. The boat and the service great!

As with all Hard Rock Cafe's, the service was outstanding!

Great quick historical tour of Gdańsk with friendly guides.
