“Far too expensive for defrosted food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

This is Ibis Staro Miasto hotel's restaurant, which I tried while staying there.

Yet service was minimalistic, the waiters were still smiling and efficient (but there was only four customers and the same number of waiters this evening).

The greatest disappointment was the food, considering the expensive prices: 35-60 zl for a main courses or 75 zl for a three course menu. For that price, we noticeably got:
* a half frozen carpaccio (some slices were still crispy!),
* oven baked tortillas where the wrap was completely dry and tough and served with two sauces: a very spicy one and another that was just liquid cream (at least, it looked like it).
* the only good point of this meal: a quite good apple pie served with some tasty mashed apples.

If you are staying at Ibis Staro Miasto and don't want to go far away to eat, consider the buffets at Dom Smakow, just across the road. For half the price, you'll eat much more and better!
