Good traditional food

You have to walk a little bit from the main promenade to get there, but it is worth, as you can see the oldest pub / restaurant in Zakopane and you can feel the traditional mood. The food is very good (definitly better then the average on the main promenade). On Sutardays (and from time to time on... read more

We liked both the food - particularly "U Wnuka" pork; as well as the friendly service by the waiter. Great bulding as well - nothing to complain about, just enjoy !

Firstly, the interior of the place is what we had hoped for in Zakopane. The host, Kristoff was most obliging with a wry sense of humour which we loved. The menu was easy to read and the food was superb. We went there two nights in a row simply because the food and service was so good on the first.... More

Our tour guide recommended U Wnuka; and, we were not disappointed. Four of us went to lunch there one day during the Tour de Pologne. Although there was only one server, he efficiently covered the entire dining area. We started with Polish beers and appetizers of herring, grilled cheese and cheesy-spinach dumplings. For our main meal, we had zurek (traditional... More

I loved our dinner in this old traditional restaurant. I do think they could do with more staff though as we did have to wait a bit, on the other hand we were on holiday and there was no rush. Plus a group of highlanders in traditional outfits were playing and signing practicaly all the time so we didn't really... More

Restaurant with traditions, which does not give in to the kitschy village style. Nice music but the tables covered with dirty cloths and the quality of food on the verge of being acceptable.
