Nice food, good offers on Sundays!

We visited for dinner on a Sunday. The food was tasty - people are right, the portions are large, but it's good food. Not fine dining, but a good place to go, which is very popular with locals and tourists alike. We had the chicken (which was great) and the lamb shank (huge but tasty... read more

Very low quality of meat, the food is tasteless. They seem to use microwave a lot. Bug portions but who is gonna eat those stuff? Very bad restaurant! Totally not recommended.

After reading all the great reviews, I was totaly disapointed with this place. Liked the setting - very coasy, however the food was tasteless. They do have large portions and daily deals, however the waiter was unable to explain what the current promotion was so we could not take advantage. There are definately much more nicer places in Warsaw.

This place serves huge portions, and you have to be very hungry to handle that. The quality isn't good, simply average food. I can understand why some people get hyped about it, but I would rather have a more expensive, smaller, but well-made dish, from fresh ingredients.

Food was ok, but nothing extraordinary. Portions not as big as in other restaurant of this kind. They should clear the menu from time to time. It was probably my last visit.

The place itself is nice for a dinner with friends. With a large beer, you can accept the food being not so great. However it is one of the places I used to be in a lot. All in all, not so bad.

As others have said, portions are big! I went for what I thought was a light chicken dish and ended up with a metre long kebab! Prices are reasonable and ambiance is pleasant. My food was a bit overcooked but it wasn't fine dining so happy overall!

I have been here a lot of times over the last 15 years. So have to say well established restaurant in very popular spot in Warsaw. This is not a typical Polish Food place to eat. It's a sort of fusion of Polish, Slovak and Czech food, that sometimes gives a strange impression. Big portions for reasonable prices. The design... More

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
