The portions were huge, but the taste was not as good as expected. Also, they really brought the food incredibly fast, so I also think that they do put it to microwave. Also our waitress didn't speak nor English, nor Russian.

Jedzenie średnie, ale nienajgorsze. Porcje bardzo duże. Wielkie piwa, wielkie żarcie. Nie mój klimat, ale ok. Food average, but not bad. Portions very large. Great beer, great food. Not my feeling, but ok.

Tasty, great value for money, seems to be always busy. However it's not too difficult to get a table. Massive portions of good, tasty comfort food. Good atmosphere, down to earth and relaxed.

This place is essentially a large beer hall which serves food to accompany the drink. It's a very popular spot so you might want to set out early in the day to get a table. Whilst the food is by no means haute cuisine it has no pretensions to being so. The large portions will certainly fill you up quite... More

Fun place, very large, seemed well organized, but service felt a bit rushed. Food is typical central European fare and seems more about quantity than quality. For example my schnitzel was huge, but a bit dry. Beer goes by the litre.

This restaurant has an eastern european theme and is very busy with large groups. Dishes are generously proportioned and good value, but don´t expect fine dining. For example, try the various-meats-dish-for-2, which is huge at a very modest price. Seating inside and outside and also in the vaulted cellar.

Restaurant offers variety of south and east European food. Portions are large, very tasty and cheap. The place is loud and has interior of a tavern. Not a place for romantic dinner but perfect for meeting with friends for a beer and something tasty to eat. I have been there couple times and sometimes it looks like they lack waiters... More
