What a great find, authentic Polish food for a mainly Polish clientele. The decor is "original", every square inch is contemporary art, not just the walls and doors but the furniture too.

We were looking for a small, quiet place to get some traditional Polish food. "Golabki" was clearly written as one of the specials on the outdoor menu board. This, for us, was the deciding factor to step inside! The atmosphere was that of a small pub. The dining area was nicely decorated in traditional style , and was very comforting.... More

A fascinating place, like a 60's coffee bar I used to visit. Painted ceilings, walls, lots of ornaments, pottery etc. worth a visit just to look at all the items on display. We called in for lunch and tried the meat and spinach dumplings, washed down with a beer. Just right. Old record player with lots of LPs on display.... More

Small place with homely food. Fish soup was tasty (eat the fish pieces carefully as you might find some bones). Good fried fish, Salad and potatoes. The atmosphere was nice, the two ladies there, helped to find the way in the Polish names of dishes. It was nice and not expensive.

We stopped in here twice. The first time there was a family of 20 with 4 young children running willy nilly. The waiters were patient with the children and we were impressed by how quickly and smoothly we were served considering the large groups around us. Kristina was a welcoming hostess and we returned a few days later. We enjoyed... More

This restaurant is so rustic Polish, the food is superb if you dont mind the decor and good old fashioned Polish charm. The guy who entices you or should i say invites you into his restaurant from the street is dresses more like a spy than a restauranteur but is great. The staff are friendly, the restaurant is confusingly quirky... More

Fried flounder was well cooked and tasty, but average fries and salads. Also tried a "gypsy" dish that was too heavy. Might be best for a quick lunch or dinner. Reasonable prices.

Well, I just found this place by the chance as I cycled up and down soaked streets of an old town. First impression, very cozy and a host Ms Kristina called Krysia well above welcoming and cheerful character. The soup - "Zurek" served instantly, which was a warmfull addition to this place, then second meal, polish traditional "schabowy" schnitzel very... More

Once you step in to Bar Jacobsen you don't know if you are living in the 2000's, or 60's or 70's - in a positive way. Friendly personal, a lot of smiles, good vibes and excellent food! You may hear a Jacques Brel music from the LP record player while having you dinner and time. Time stands still and most... More

Very friendly staff, out of ordinary decor, great żurek at 10:45 am served in no time. The fish soup was in the making process - next time it will be my choice!!!!
