We visited Motlava restaurant for a late lunch after 3 hours in the museum next door. Our waiter, Alex was very accommodating and informative. 5 of us tried different meals from the menu and we were all delighted. A lovely warm venue in all ways.

Excellent meal, quality of food was outstanding. I had the salmon dumpling and the pork knuckle which were great sized portions and tasted great. The service was brilliant, Alex served us and he was attentive, friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend eating here.

We had burger, duck, fish soup and desserts. Everything was excellent, maybe soup had a little bit more pepper than we’d like, but still it tasted really well. Burger was simply the best in town. Very kind and attentive waiters. Top notch restaurant. Definitely recommend.

Modern european/polish cuisine. Nice locale easy walking distance from the old town along the river. Good food, polish red and white wines worth trying. Super friendly service.

Delicious Polish cuisine with a modern twist. A mean vodka and tonic followed by unexpectedly delicious polish wine. A mixture of New Order, The Clash and ABBA in the background. Surrounded by lots of tables of local family get-togethers. This seems like the place of...choice for locals to celebrate special occasions. Fantastic service and great value for money. Highly recommended.More
