“People watching heaven.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Located in the market square, nice mix of Polish and other dishes. A great place and reasonably priced too.

“Very poor service, meal just terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

It just one of these restaurant which pretend to be something they are not. The menu looks quite nice but that's last pleasant thing there. The whole experience is just about waiting ... even though there were only cca five tables occupied and there were two waitresses, we were waiting for more then 25 minutes for order then more then one hour for the meal (just pizzas). It is obvious that we were not the only with experience, we could see poeple coming and asking the weitresses to come and take the order or bring the meal and so on. The only reply they could get was "you have to wait for the waitress", but the weitresses were actually doing nothing, just hanging around the bar. At the end the meal was just awfull - you can definitelly get a better pizza from the freezer in any supermarket. We did not give any tip to them, they did not even say thank you or good bye.

“PRICE SURPRISE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We ordered the sesame chicken also the chicken liver with onions and apples. Both were fine in the Polish/German tradition. When we got our pill, yes PILL; for a tiny bit of mushed salad they charged approx. $3 extra per person as well as another $3 for a few potatoes. This is not a high end place and we were not told that the only thing included with our meal was a lettuce leaf and a tiny onion with roots. We feel this was deceptive and want to make sure other travelers are aware.
We found no one else operated like this in our tree days in Wroclaw.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We ate here because it was on the square and the missus just couldn't go another step. There was not much on the menu that tempted us, but I found a baked trout, which surprised me by being very nice indeed. The other meal was not much better than palatable. Once she noticed us, the waitress looked after us well and we enjoyed people watching. We would not choose to eat there again as there are better places on the square.

“There's better around..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Our first night in Wroclaw saw us visit this place. Waitress was appallingly surly, I think she would have been worse if my wife did not speak Polish.

Overall food is ok and it's not too expensive considering its the rynek.
