Good food, good service

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.

Away from the busy and cosmopolitan street of Krupowki but still in the heart of Zakopane. Not crowded which was appreciated, we really enjoyed live music played by the boys from the area. The food was good but no choice of wine which was a shame. The atmosphere was typical of the village years ago. There was an obligatory 'szatnia'... More

went here as number 1 recommendation but probably worst meal we had in Zakopane. Lovely old building and would have had great atmosphere had we not been the only people there! Enjoyed the borscht soup but unfortunately accompanying meat croquette was still frozen solid in the middle - when sent back there were howls of laughter from the kitchen. Waiter... More

Great atmosphere in what was claimed to be zakopanes oldest restaurant with charming local architecture, noisy entertaining goralski band but let down by dull food and poor service. Mushroom soup starter lacked a key ingredient - mushrooms! Bigos was good. Mains were dull and uninspiring. Service poor with requested bread never arriving and ordered side dishes undelivered. Were expecting more... More
