Description: This restaurant is located in the center of the main square and main tourist attraction of Wroclaw. Looks very interesting and welcoming from outside however when you decide to eat there it is a big disapointment. Very bad quality of food and service. You can find some negative reviews of this restaurant on other travel directories. I think this shall be presented here as a warning for all foreign tourists to avoid this place. Great location and good outlook seems to be a trap which can destroy your holidays in such beautiful place as Wroclaw.

If it's not really the oldest pub in Europe, it's definitely one of the coolest looking. Even if you're not going to eat or drink there, just go downstairs and have a look. Great food, drinks, and staff. Love it.

we had a lovely waitress serving us in this magnificent restaurant. I recall mostly the superb mural they had all over the curved wall,ceiling, about the most attractive eatery I've ever been in. They serve superb beers, as do nearly all bars and restaurants in Wroclaw. the menu has a wide variety of polish food and whilst the local guide... More

I must mention the chef because our food was excellent, either fish and meat, and our nice waiter. The atmosphere is magic but the service is totally inefficient and the waiting time is too long. No organisation in this place and the blondie manager was impolite and welcome us telling about the payment just by cash...no words really...price was average... More

I think in order to have a good experience here you need to have someone local with you. The food was just yummy but the staff don't speak a word of English. The price is also good and the decor is interesting.

Upon entering the establishment no one came to greet us. We waited about 5 minutes in plain sight of employees who simply ignored us. When we finally approached one of the staff to inquire about seating he was very rude. We finally received a table and were told we could pay with cash only. This generally isn't a problem but...

To taste local small dishes with a glass of beer,in rynek, this is the place to be. Of course we were on the small terrace for a view,so can't say for the restaurant. But local food was cheap and very tasty, made fresh. The only incovenient is that it seemed to be full, and you have to wait for dishes

The restaurant had an impressive historic atmosphere and the staff was friendly. I ordered grilled ribs and I got a huge wooden plate of really amazing food. It was so much food that I could only eat the half of it. My feyonce ate stuffed duck with dumplings and he was quite as satified with the food as I was.... More

We visited the restaurant late in the evening and was seated and served very quickly with drinks and main courses. The restaurant and bar is in the basement of the building and we was pleasantly surprised how nice the restaurant was. We had chicken, trout and ribs and the food quality and service was excellent. We would certainly recommend this... More

Had a very nice meal there with my daughter and son in law. Very interesting bar and restaurant basically in the old basement or crypt underneath City Hall. This place has been a restaurant / bar since the 12 century. Very good typical Polish menu prepared very well. Reasonably priced but I thought everything was very reasonable in Poland.

In my opinion, this is the most beautiful restaurant and bar I've seen in Wroclaw. It is placed in the main square but it's not the typical restaurant you can find in there. This is THE RESTAURANT. Outside it looks like a bar but when you get in, you get surprised. You feel like if you were in another age... More
