Great value, tasty food!

We had dinner in this restaurant, and the quality vs cost is hard to beat. Good place indeed! Staff is friendly and service is fast, food is tasty and professional. This place is worth walking the distance from the old town centre!

Just across from our hotel, we walked around and found this pub. According to the menu they also have a lot of typical Polish food, but we just wanted a drink. No problem, and we spent a few enjoyable hours. Very friendly staff, a great choice of drinks, just a great place.

We actually ate at this restaurant twice. It was a block from our hotel and very easy to find. Our first night there was a tour group in a separate room so there were extra wait staff. There was also folk music being performed in the separate room which was nice to hear. Night one, excellent service. Night two, service... More

great, cozy place, not so far from city center, but far enough to be not crowded, even in jarmark dominikanski times. (not only) polish traditional cuisine - very tasty, nice served - no "fancy fireworks" - exactly as it needs to be. and, what's also important - very good value for money. they serve fit menu, home-made cakes. desserts, and...

The food is simply amazing - the pork chop fried in lard is some of the best fried foods I've ever had, and amongst the tastiest dishes of any kind I've had in Poland. The accompanying sauerkraut is hands down the best I've tasted in any restaurant, Germany included - and by Polish standards the service is great. English-speaking staff... More

We arrived late in the day at the Mercure hotel and researched a restaurant near the hotel. Swojski Smak was a block away. The name means roughly "Homestyle Taste" and it lives up to its name. We ordered soups for appetizers (the cold borsht was a little rich for my taste) and shared a family style plate of roasted potatoes,... More

We came here by chance. They have English and German menues. Excellent selection of cold beers, very good straightforward Polish food. Service nice and helpful. Currently there is a construction wall on the other side of the street, so the view from the restaurant is not too attractive. We came back anyhow because we liked the place. Very good value...
