Go to the Szpitalna

We tried both the branches. The first time we went for dinner to the Szpitalna branch and the pierogi were delicious, so was the chicken.We tried the cabbage and mushrooms version. The interior was okay. Next time, in the afternoon , we tried the Slawkowska one. This one is tricky to find and we... read more

We visited the small restaurant which is difficult to find on Slawskoska street just off the main square. I believe there may be another. But here once you find it go through an impressive hallway building where there is a chap in a room clearly monitoring who comes and goes, on to a small square and to the left is... More

It's my favourite restaurant because its interior is very beautiful and authentic. The food is good and good quality while it's cheaper then the restaurants in the main street and at the main square. There is as well one pianist who plays on long authentic piano. All that makes the dinner very pleasant. And the waiters are very helpful.

I was slightly skeptical of pierogis. Prior to our visit, my experience with pierogis had been from a box, a little soggy or sticky, and not very appetizing. If I could eat pierogis like the ones served at U Babci Maliny, I might eat them every day. Absolutely delicious. Coupled with that, the decor, and setting is so strange and... More

I can't really share the admiration for this place. It is indeed very beautiful inside and if you want to impress someone you can go there just to show them the wooden benches and tables and the nice design. It is true that the portuons are huge but...untasty. The soups are too salty, the pancakes I ordered were not even... More

Read a top review in a lonely planet guide and headed down for what would be a serious waste of time. Firstly, menus are poorly translated and the English is virtually no help as to what the dish actually is. When the food came, portions were small and whilst not expensive, it was of a poor quality and not worth... More

We got recommended this restaurant by the hotel. You never know what you're going to get. This place has feeling, it's tucked away and decorated in a Scandinavian ski restaurant feel which adds to the ambiance. The food is value for money, simple and wholesome. Watch out for the wines though. Well worth a visit for those on a budget... More

We came for the Pierogi and were blown away - perfection. We had sweet cheese: AMAZING!!!! Also had kasha (kasza) with sheeps cheese (bryndza) as well as the meat (miesa) ones. Get multiple choices to share - each plate has 8 or so. We did not all the items on their expansive menu but the locals were digging in. Drinks... More

An authentic pierogi joint decked out like a log cabin chalet. Self service on the ground and upper floor with waitress service in the basement. The restaurant offers a broad range of excellent local specialties; the pierogi and borsch were delicious. Simple, but hearty tucker. Not the place to go for an upscale or flashy dinner out, but absolutely spot... More

A Polish friend suggested me this place as a hidden jewel for locals and it was a great surprise! It is difficult to find it, but food is homemade, amazing and very abundant. Also great prices! The personnel is quite unfriendly and a bit rude, but food and price compensate it!
