as we stopped at the hotel we had dinner at the restaurant. good service, the two waiters we met on two days stay they were very attended. nice menu, unfortunately not all the items are reported in English and waiters do not speak English...but in...the end, we had good dinnerMore
I was there with work colleagues and locals. The last ones confirmed to me, the restaurat servs actual Polish dishes. And I can say the food is very good. The location is very nice: wood everywhere. It is like being in a cottage up in...the mountain. Typical music and local waiters. Good place for a pleasant evening.More
Stopped by for two occasions, lunch one day and dinner few days later. Both times we had very good service and delicious food. Noteworthy things is that this Karczma is styled for an old Highlander building and is decorated inside with wild animal trophy's. It...is very unique and worth for stopping just to check it out. Food was excellent both times.More
I have been to this place several times over a few years. For those who have never been here - this is a tavern or inn-type of restaurant, with solid structure, some shouldermounts or antlers on the walls, heavy wooden tables and benches andlocal, country-style...cuisine.
You do not want to see light, sophisticated dishes in the menu. You go there to eat rich, plain, basically what you believe is traditional, rather heavy food. And you will get it in Karczma w Straconce.
What you will not be disappointed with is various types of meat: pork knuckles, ribs, sirloin, prepared in different ways: grilled, roasted or cooked. They will serve you roast potatoes, red cabbage as side dishes. Everything will be good, even if you will not find different flavours subtly combined together to create finessed sensation in the food served.
If you like game - there will be saddle of deer or wild bore loin in the menu. And you should not skip the traditional Polish żurek (sour soup on rye ferment), served with sausage and hard-boiled egg. Sourkraut soup, though, is nothing very special in this place and I would have it much better than this, in many other places than Karczma.
Sander filet or fried trout will be alright but without any surprises. At least the trout should be fresh, because it most likely comes from some local farms.
I was not particularly impressed by the waiters service; I would have much more appreciated the Spanish-type waiter, who will pay a lot of attention to the guest, chat with them, assist from the nearby.
When completing your dinner with an espresso you may not be delighted; the coffee will be just very average, which will sadly spoil the overall pretty good impression.
And paying the bill you may come to the conclusion that perhaps for the same amount of money you could experience something more exquisite or sophisticated. But if what you wanted was good, real, full-bodied food, you will be fully satisfied.More
I was there with 2 friends and we decided to go thirds in the pork ribs ~36 zl (9 euros) and a beer roasted pork knuckle style meal which was 7 zl per 100g and is kind of a surprise as to how big it...comes- (the waiter said they are normally around 700g) but ours must have been close to a Kilo. The waiter was very friendly- we had a few laughs over the english polish language barrier. When the food came it was amazing! The meat fell off the bone as soon as you tried to pick it up. All together with drinks and a side it came to 50 zl each not even 13 euros!!! In Australia this meal would have well been over $50 per person! The restaurant its self is beautiful too, very authentic.
If you are in Bielsko- go there! I will be going again for sure.More
I am in Bielsko once or twice a month. I was in Karczma w Straconce three times last year. I will never understand why local people like this place and why they take their quests there. Place is looking not so bad but has no...soul and not any character. You can find such places at ever highway. Food is in my opinion totally disappointing. I was expecting something local, tasty and received just fat and heavy. So, if you believe Polish Beskidy highland cousins is the more fat the better go there and enjoy!More
