I was traveling with a student group visiting Warsaw. My colleague and I had asked a Polish student to recommend a good restaurant that could accommodate a group of 20+ hungry students. This restaurant was an excellent choice. The amount of food we were served boggled my mind! Portions are large, so keep this in mind when visiting. We had... More

!We had dinner here last Friday. I had grilled lamb sausages, sauerkraut en french fries. Portions were very large (hurray!). The waiters were very welcoming and tried their best to help us in English, and they succeeded. Options for vegetarians are a bit limited, but nothing to complain about. You won't regret having dinner here.

This restaurant in Warsaw has a great variety of traditional polish food and they serve really big portions. I really enjoyed the place and price is really reasonable for the quality of services. I tried the sznycel which is not really polish but was also as well. I ate half and was already full followed by a awesome potato salad... More

This restaurant is just amazing! Inside it looks like an old brewery! The service was very quick and food was great! At the beginning you are getting some Polish dips with bread, that go perfect with the beer.I had the lamb sausage from the grill: meat was tender and with great flavor, served with sauerkraut and potatoes. Really yummy! My... More

This is a simple place for simple people. Their recipe for success: -great, nice, polite & professional service -awesome Czech food, better than in many places in Prague, big man-size dishes -unique atmosphere, live music, party attitude, small surprises (like a gratis shot of raspberry vodka with your check) - that place didn't change during last few years;)

I had an Argentinian beef steak at this restaurant together with french fries and two beers. Oh and the dessert too. The food quality is very good and I spent in total something like 11€. NOTHING. I would highly recommend this, even if the staff is just not that kind. They won't speak in English to you and not even... More

One of the best places you can go to eat really well. Extremely nice service. Great food. Good prices - especially meal of the day. And really cool part is alcohol given to your bill.
