Nice place to sit outside on a warm summer eve, right in the heart of the jewish quarter. However, the service is an issue. You need a lot of time.

We found the food to be so delicious that we ate here twice. The menu has traditional Polish food, but also some unusual Jewish dishes. The live music is nice, but one night it was raining so the musicians came inside which was a bit crowded. The restaurant is small, so I recommend reservations. It is easy to find on... More

Good food, decent service and live music. The duck carpaccio was fantastic. The lamb dumplings were very nice. The goose was big enough to share, but a great treat.

Located in a street with many many other restaurants for competition. We chose to sit outside under the awning, at the front of the restaurant which was... More

Huge servings. I liked the food a lot. We had folks with dietary restrictions in our party, and they had no problem as there was a variety of meats and vegetarian dishes as well. The venison perogis were amazing.

Had soup here twice and it was very good. Breakfast had interesting choices; meats, cheeses, fruit, cereals, yogurt, drinks, pastries that were not loaded with sugar and several choices that I did not recognize.
