Although there is not a great variety of food, it is a nice place to eat Polish food. Cheap and cozy. I recommend it.

We had a delicious soup, pierogi and we tried a meat dish that the very good waitress suggested to us. All tasty and nicely cooked. It's 10 mins walk fom... More

Very cosy with an open fire and sheep skins over the benches., Polish music playing to add to the ambiance. My wife and I had Soup starter, beer and huge main... More
