This is the place where I go at least a few... More

This is a very nice, busy and friendly grand-cafe, the food is tasty and there is a wide selection, it's great value-for-money, and the location is great.... Easy going for dinner or lunch on the middle of the week.

I visit Bydgoszcz once or twice a year and every trip includes at least one visit to Sowa, although to be honest it's most often to one of the cafés rather than the main restaurant. Sowa cafés can be relied on for great coffee, excellent traditional polish cakes and pastries and delicious ice creams. I always visit the branch in... More

Adam Sowa restaurant in Bydgoszcz has become a very popular place to meet and dine recently. We pick this place to organise bigger family events, formal meetings and one-to-one business contacts. It is universal, well designed, with delicious food and friendly staff restaurant. We can observe that for many travellers Adam Sowa in Bydgoszcz has become "must-to-visit" place.

i didn't really like the interior design and the atmosphere in this restaurant but the food was very good. The pork knuckle I ordered was tender and delicious. If you want to try some good Polish food then I recommend this place.

Large and modern restaurant with wood-fired pizza oven. Young serving staff speeking fluently English. Wide variety of dishes of Polish, Italian and international kitchens. I can't exactly remember what we ate, because the major memory of our evening was the impossibility to have a decent conversation, due to the awfully loud live singer only 3 tables away of us. This... More

Sowa has been known to be top of the line deliciousness, but in the past few years it has gone a little downhill. The prices are more expensive than your regular restaurants, and the food is good, but comparable to other places. The atmosphere is nice, and you do have the convenience of translated menus in case you can't read... More
