Great setting on the opposite river bank from the castle. This is a restaurant boat, seating aboard and on the riverbank terrace.
Teriffic pork steak for me here and Mrs B more than impressed with veggie options, a lovely meal.
There are 3 restaurants inside the building (Lower Castle) of Hotel Zamek.
I didn't eat there but I looked at the menu: Polish traditional food and international food available at a little higher prices than you can find in other restaurants around.
Favorite Dish: Zurek - Polish traditional soup.
Mixed grill - various kinds of meat.
There is plenty of places to eat outside of the castle. You have some typical polish sesonal food by the river or fast food kiosks by the parking lot. There is also restaurant in a handsome looking building right by the entrance to the castle.
Favorite Dish: We went to this restaurant for a quick coffee. All tables were reserved for the tour, however they let us sit down and have a coffee. Coffee and whatever desert we ordered were not great but good. Also bathrooms (what is always important when you travel) were large and clean.
We would go there for coffee again.
Hmm... it's not the best restaurant. Rather a place to meet locals drinking beer. If you like you can order some simple food as well.
And this restaurant design is hmm... not acceptable for me at this place = just by the castle on the riverside. Am I wrong?
Favorite Dish: None.
1. traditional Polish soup called ZUREK (kind of sour soup) - hmm... it was NOT the best ZUREK I ever ate, too sour, I think.
2. KARKOWKA Z GRILLA (frytki, zestaw surowek) =
A. grilled KARKOWKA (pork meat from the pig's nape, back of the neck);
B. frytki = chips, hmmm... I ordered ZAPIEKANE ZIEMNAKI insted of chips = potatoes first boiled and then cut into smaller pieces and roasted;
C. ZESTAW SUROWEK = mixed (seasonal) salad, in June it contained tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbages and carrots.
3. Orange juice.
A and B were delicious, C? hmm... not my favourite sort of salad hehe.
1. 6.00 PLN
2. 20.00 PLN
3. 5.00 PLN
Add a tip (approx. 10 %) = 35.00 PLN (approx. $9.5 or 8 Euros).
There are not very comfortable seats in the Restaurant Piwniczka, just wooden benches around wooden tables. But the atmosphere of the place is great. Hmm... I would like to see more candles there (instead of the electric lights) - am I right?
You must go downstairs to enter the restaurant Piwniczka. Hmmm... watch your steps, stairs are steep and narrow. Don't forget it when you come back upstairs, especially after delicious Polish beer :-).
If you are not forced to drive try Polish beer: there is "a pub" run/sponsored by Lech Premium Brewery (from Poznan). It's just a tent with wooden tables and benches inside and outside.
Favorite Dish: Lech Beer - 0.5 l = 16.91 oz (duze piwo = large beer) costs 4.0 - 5.0 zl (about 1 Euro/US$).
Better do not eat in this "restaurant" hehe. They offer hot-dog, hamburger and hot sandwiches - cheap but hmm... not of good quality. But you can buy here something to drink (Coca Cola, Fanta, Sprite etc.) - no ice tea.
Favorite Dish: Polish juice KUBUS - banana taste or others if you like - 3 PLN for a small bottle.
Visit Malbork for one reason: the Castle. It is so large, you'll lose yourself for hours in its twists, and turns, and turrets. Once you've exhausted yourself there, relax over a fine meal at a fine restaurant and...
The interior design of the cellars housing the restaurant Piwniczka is rather modest. But the old vaults look really amazing. Am I wrong?
This restaurand located in the amazing undergrounds of the Teutonic Order castle offers delicious - hmm... maybe except my soup :-( - and not expensive Polish food. Nice and fast service.
