Healthy meal options at a great price

Went here as my wife as we felt for vegetarian meal. Chimera did not disappoint. We ate upstairs; the service was quick (its a cafeteria style where you pick a plate with 4 or 6 items). A 4 item plate is 13pln (which is about 3.6 usd) which is an awesome deal. I had two slice of vegetable tart... read more

Lovely setting, in a covered courtyard. Delicious, healthy food, good for a detox after lots of stodgy Polish food. Ordering system is a bit confusing, but the food is cheap and the staff helpful.

Super cute salad bar. Beautiful location, it has a very cozy feel in the evenings. Good selection of salads and dishes - mostly vegetarian, with a few including meat. Awesome sweet potato tart and Maltese salad. Service is good. Reasonable priced.

Prices are higher and higher for quite small portions which is only disadvantage for me. It's always good and a lot of various stuff to pick up from. The place itself is ambient and original.

The food was so so good - it came out quickly after ordering. The portions were great and the flavours very tasty. And the prices were super reasonable. However, the service was very slow and it took us literally 35 minutes to make eye contact with anyone. Other tables were served - and there were only 5 tables full with... More

descend in the cellars of Chimera and enjoy the atmosphere of the candlelit space. The food and the service is good and you'll find all the famous polish dishes in average prices. But what is the most memorable from the this restaurant is the medieval feeling , without being very touristic.

Chimera has both an excellent sit-down menu as well as an amazing lunch bar. The lunch bar has lots of specials, as well as entrees, fruits, salads, desserts, etc. Would definitely go back.

I advise you to go down to the down part of restaurant. In comparison with upper floor you will feel difference. There is no hassles there.Delicious soup in goulash style, heady desserts and cognitive place.

Two days ago we decided to eat here. The rewtaurant looks good and cozy. But the staff says almost nothing en the giek that served us was unfriendly. I think she does nog speak english. There was also à lot of sand in our mushroom soup.
