We eat Polish golonka and it was really good, the portion was just right- not too big. Also I'd recommend a white house wine.

Good polish food at reasonable prices.Portions could be larger but this is not really a minus. If you choose to pay with Credit Card always take the Szloty option!

A traditional restaurant with reasonable food and wine. A little expensive for what it is. There are better and cheaper restaurants in the near area.

We stumbled on this delightful restaurant as we rushed to get out of the rain! We had to wait quite a while for a menu but service was great after that. The waitress was friendly and helpful. Good traditional Polish food. We had a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio. It is a new restaurant and decor is all wood and... More

The dishes are very similar to our Ukrainian cousin, it weren't something special for me. But everything was tasty and I like the atmosphere inside. Thanks for compliment from chef while we were waiting for main dish.

wide choice of food, plenty of it! We chose the day's special of Pork chop on potato, with grated red cabbage and coleslaw, which was all delicious and served in generous amounts. No desserts for us! The wonderful wood-fired oven cast a much needed warmth as we entered. The staff were friendly and helpful. If you are in Old Town... More
