La Maddalena


Our hotel recommended this restaurant La Maddalena to us, so we headed there on our last night, swayed by the fact you get to sit on the riverside with a view of the stunning University building which lights up at night.

The menu is modern European and James went for the duck for 73 zloty (£14), whilst I went for the seabass for 123 zloty (£23.60) and we were not expecting the portions to be so big!

The food was really great and given that this is probably at the top of the ‘expensive’ end of the scale for restaurants in the city, we were really impressed with what you got versus what you would pay for a similar meal back home – especially as many dishes were around the 70 – 80 zloty range.

If you’re feeling fancy, you may want to try the tasting menu which costs 340 zloty (£46.04) and an extra 160 zloty (£30.69) for wine pairing. Yes, it’s not cheap, but compared to a tasting menu with wine for under £100 in a good restaurant is brilliant value versus UK standards!

Drinks wise, they have a gin and tonic menu for 38 zloty (£7.29) too.
