We were a large group of 14 people and the restaurant prepared a great menu with a starters variation (beef brisket dumplings were my favourite) and three dishes to choose from as a main and a dessert. Very good food and nice and friendly staff....High recommendationMore

Thank you for such a wonderful breakfast. Great attention to detail. Gluten free options available and even had gluten free bread available. They know what goes into their food and you can tell that everything is fresh. Lovely garden setting as well. Can’t wait to...come back for this delicious food.More

We came all the way from Łódź to try their breakfast which they didn’t serve us because we were a bit late, and then we ordered simple burgers which they forgot to put the orders in for because we were waiting for over half an...hour. For burgers! People who came after us ate and left before we were served. When the burger did finally arrive it was soggy at the bottom, making it impossible to pick up, the middle was filled with raw vegetables which meant the patty just slipped off, making a complete mess! The meat was basically tasteless, with only the bacon actually adding some flavour. As for the fries, they came with sauce in a bottle far bigger than the smaller and medium fries. So either plan on skipping half your fries or pouring out the sauce like a barbarian. Thoroughly disappointing, and not what we were expecting after the hype and the positive reviews. Best don't visit but if you insist on going then make sure you see the waiters put in the orders yourself or you might end up waiting endlessly like us. Make sure you come exactly on time otherwise you’re not getting breakfast. And of course avoid the burger insofar as possible.More

Nice, relaxed ambiance, peaceful terrace. Very limited wine list, limited menu as well, but what we ate was good: fish and pasta.

Lots of choice for breakfast and a wide selection of juices. And if you fancy a cocktail with your breakfast, you can have one. A really nice place to eat just off the main square

I took some potential clients here and had a couple of well prepared drinks and a cheese board. It was a good environment and I did execute a multi million dollar deal at this location. Chalk up another one.
