When you go to a place like this, you definitely mean food. The decor is really nice to have a glass or beer or wine with a friend, the service is tip-friendly but the food just makes you sick from looking at it! Recommended steak was not medium at all but well-done and chicken breast was dry (really dry). We... More

Have visited this place recently with my husband, really nice one, worth visiting, I would say. Authentic atmosphere, various choice of dishes, tasty draft beer, live music and good service. The only minus is that place is quite noisy, so it could be recommended for big companies rather then romantic dinner for two.

This restaurant was recommended by my hotel and what a great recommendation. Bit of a wait for the table, then an evening of fabulous food, sumptious flavours and very generous portion sizes, super helpful staff, funky live music and an all round welcoming and happy vibe within the restaurant - all rounded off with a scrummy conplimentary cherry vodka. Memorable... More

The plates of food here are large and excellent for sharing. I recommend the Officers Platter and the skewer of meat. Both are large enough to share and come with various salads and potatoes.

Local Polish people recommended this place and when we arrived it was absolutely bursting at the seams... We had to wait 20 minutes for a table... Portions sizes were ridiculously large ( and good ) ... The three of us got through three enormous main courses, 6 vodkas and a dessert....... Total 175 pln , about 6 quid each.... !!!

This place was always busy when we passed so we thought we would give it a go. It started off ok but as the night went on , when the restaurant actually became less busy, the service went dramatically downhill. The main courses were ok but deserts were soggy and were sent back. The waitresses never even offered us desert... More
