Handy place to stay

Stayed at the Grotesque for a few nights and was pleasant enough, very close to centre about 20 mts. Only downside was thebreakfast in your bedroom. It was just a salad put into your fridge during the evening. All in all was quite happy there and would maybe use again

Visited in the Saturday night of our 3 night stay in Rzeszow and it didn't really rate at the side of the other two restaurants (Stary Browar and Konfitura). Whilst quite a rustic restaurant the staff seemed bored, wanting to retreat behind the bar as quick as possible. The food presentation was a bit workmanlike with little finesse. Plenty of... More

I have been in October several times there and enjoyed my dinners and suppers. The prices have been average , dishes traditional , and good service what is important too . Only what was annoying me is a POP-Star Mania on the Walls. It is little bit disappointing because good restaurant does not need support by extra customers , For... More

Service is excellent, attentive and English-speaking. The traditional Polish soup is delicious and hearty, full of goodies. Had potato pancakes with goulash for entree... Eh.

Good Greek salad but the fajitas were pretty bland. As always in Poland the service and value were excellent.

Nice ambience, friendly staff and tasty polish food for a cheap price. Of course, a delicious beer too! Perhaps, the best choice in Rzeszow.

Food was nice, staff friendly but found better restaurant named grota. Waited a while for the dinner and was very hot inside the restaurant.

In my point of view this is not consistent evaluation! I would argue that it is written by person who wanted advertise snack bar on the web-site restaurants. Unfortunately, we do not use centra heating during a summer but air condition, so how it possible to be hot inside restaurant? Generally, Your evaluation is perfunctory and Mrs. didn't write anything... More

We ate in the Grotesque open air bar/restaurant in the main square. We had Polish food, the pancakes with goulasch was particularly tasty. We were in Rzeszow for four nights, and we ate at the Grotesque for two of those nights.
