The restaurant is located in the Old City. The food is very good, feel more like to eat at home than average restaurant. The personal is friendly. I will come back for sure.

After a long day of travelling this place was close to our hotel. The pirogi feast is a feast indeed. Very tasty dumplings with different fillings. We tried this with the cider and this was a good combination. The serving staff is very nice and friendly.

The food was good, but not great and referred to the price that was on acceptable level especially that it was close to city center. The waiter was ok. In general the restaurant was a common one, with nothing outstanding in positive or negative way.

I am seating for about 25 min waiting for soup, I'm afraid to think how long is going to take for main dish. Just spoke with a waitress and found out that we are seating in the wrong room that is why all forgot about us , soup just arrived it's good but service here is not existent

A mix between a pub and a proper restaurant. Slightly outside the main town it offers a very good polish cuisine: a very tasty rye soup and 4 kind of polish style meats plus 4 side dishes. Very big portions and very well cooked. Everything was fresh. We appreciated a lot the shot of polish vodka at the end. Price???... More

Outside the city centre and subsequently lower price and great value. Efficient friendly service and great if you wasn't to try polish cuisine. 2 soups, a shared 4 meat platter with sides and two beers all for 31€. And really good food to boot! Highly recommended!

Not far from the mail railway station and close to the mall. Not a tourist place, visited by locals. Big menu of Polish food, good, cheap food and big portions. Most portions are available cheaper in smaller size. Staff keep forgetting drinks but never mind, friendly and speak english! Highly recommend

Thank Aatto P
