Light evening meal

We stopped here for a few drinks and a light evening meal. Service was OK and the chicken broth was a tasty treat in the cold autumn wind coming up the canal.

Visited this place with my wife to celebrate the 1st of January (the true Ukrainians will understand, why exactly HERE). Good place, good food, pleasant service. Recommended!

Was out with some friends and ended up leaving them a little early. Having missed out reservation elsewhere we popped in for a quick bite to eat. Was actually really good. My only complaint was eating my stew (which was actually served in hollowed out bread) with half of the outside covered area smoking. My own fault but it took... More

This is a lovely cafe on the river side. :Lovely staff and the baileys coffees were great. Good views of the river and people watching.

Went there with a friend and my friend ordered chai latte and got something totally different than expected .... And the attitude and willingness of the waitress was less than desirable to bring what my friend expected. Had to order regular tea and milk----and were charged extra for the milk! Terrible!!! Very poor customer service!!!

Great location on the riverside. Lovely and warm outside seating area with heaters and blankets for a late October evening. Very inexpensive drinks. Very clean toilets.

Attracted by the lovely canal panorama and the big hunger, we decided to have lunch at Pod Bandera, but the uncleanliness of the tables and the slovenly menu made us doubt if it had been a good choice. We decided to stay the same and ordered a fish soup and another of boiled eggs and sausages. Everything was TERRIBLE for... More

It was 12 celcius and raining and we found a cozy table on their heated terrace. Food was good but the portion size was very small. No bread/butter was served with the soup. The service was typical polish service....not great. The staff obviously not trained for providing a great customer experience...only trained to take orders, bring stuff to the tables...and... More

Just on the waterfront this is a great place for people watching while sampling Polish beer and trying some of the local dishes. The staff are very efficient and friendly. Sometimes a bit difficult to get a seat outside as the place is very popular both with locals and tourists alike. Nice Polish menu and good food.
