We liked the décor which felt like a traditional hunting lodge. Didn't like the location, a long way from town. We had a good evening but the décor, the beer and the company were all better than the food, which was fairly plain. The standout dish was the Polish bread and dripping (animal fat) and the best baked potatoes in... More

This restaurant is all about the "Polish Experience" the place is amazing with wooden clad walls roaring fire, rough wooden tables and period dressed serving wenches. The hospitality is wonderful and the welcome genuine, it may have been June but it felt like Christmas. The food is about meat with side dishes two of us had pork knuckle I had... More

Fantastic Polish old world cooking, great old world interior decorations create a one of a kind expirience. There's many other old world places, yet only a few of them are worth checking out - this one is one of them. Go check it or yourself, and you won't regret it. Try the veal schnitzel, its delicious.

I had a social dinner here during a conference. The place is very typical and the atmosphere recalls the old time. The food was a lot and good. We were several people so the service was not easy but they succeded in avoiding problems.

Our group of 9 persons came to this place at the recommendation of people who had been there earlier. At first, the restaurant looked very touristic with all the traditional trimmings om costumes, woodwork and music. But, once seated at our reserved table we experienced attentive service, good food and drink. Again by recommendation, we ordered a variety of dishes... More

Food is ok, but it is the restaurant for tourists who want to try some regional polish dishes. The SERVICE and time reactions should be upgraded.
