I visited Z drugiej strony lustra intrigued by the new formula of the place. Everything fresh, healthy, good coffee, organic and slow food. I am a slow food fan and love good coffee, but I was very disappointed about this place. The coffee is good indeed, but the price they want for it is horrendous (3 EUR)! I worked in a coffee shop and I know how much it costs to make one coffee and they charge way too much.
The food is overrated...the pierogi with veal had no taste, zucchini was crude, duck was not impressive, mushroom soup is just water and mushrooms (sorry this soup needs cream!) and the only thing I really enjoyed is their polenta.
I have the impression that the owner wanting to be so healthy about the food she cooks forgets that some dishes simply need a bit of butter, cream or spices. I like my food to TASTE!
Very small portions and high prices (Szczecin is not Berlin or Warsaw, the prices should be adequate to the potential target.
I really liked the sweet little things that the owners makes herself. I must admit that they are really yummy.
Regarding the owner, I am sorry to say that but she is a bit annoying, she wants to be like the Mediterranean owners coming up to your table and chatting, but she is not warm and there is something very uncomfortable about her coming all the time and boasting about the food she cooks (she treats you as if you didn't know anything about food).
I traveled a lot and spent a fortune on food and will tell you that this place will not get a Michelin star (oppose to what one of the reviewers said).

I found however that your opinion refers to the dishes we served in our winter menu and have not been offered to our guests since the end of March 2011
I am reffering to it as it was very shortly after opening the restaurant, so sometimes happened that some dishes were not as they have to be
I believe however that if you visit us again and try our summer menu or forthcoming fall menu (end of September) you will be positively suprised with what we are currently offering and what is appreciated by other tripadvisor reviewers
