We ordered barszcz (borsch) and chicken with veg. My partner loved the chicken however borsch was a bit tasteless. The decor is grand however slightly too dark.

Very good Polish restaurant. Loved the food: pirogies, steak salad, sour soup and grilled chicken with vegetables. Save space for the fruit tart. Fast service and reasonable prices.

Located a bit out of old town in probably bar district. Restaurant is simply decorated with good quality polish specialties. Huge portions and very well priced. They could improve their wine card though. Do pay a visit.
