We wanted a slightly fancy restaurant with good food. This place had a fantastic vibe with wonderful food and wine. A real highlight of our stay in Zakopane and we will certainly visit again. The coffee was also first class

The food at this restaurant is very tasty but the service us poor. We were with a large group of friends and wanted to split the bills. The waiter made a terrible fuss of this and refused to be flexible. To quote him "I will...give you one bill, you can make your calculations yourself. Well no!! We can but we want to be served and not bother about such things. The food is very tasty! The cook must be great! But there is zero flexibility on making amendments to the dishes. So if you are e.g. allergic to a certain ingredient or you don't like it ... you have no other choice but to get it as described in the menu. It's Cristina's way or the highway!!! ;-) Prices are very high. Probably they highest we've seen in Poland. Easily on par with the most expensive restaurants in Warsaw. .... but this is not Warsaw! Sorry Gorlale! The ambience and style of the interiors is modern and quite tasteful But all was ruined by a TV on the wall blasting a Netlfix series ... TV in a restaurant that aspires for fine dining??!!!More

Dear Artur, In many restaurants in Poland, bill sharing is done in this way. Due to the increased number of guests, the waiters are not able to spend enough time separating all orders from the bill - as you mentioned for a large group, like...More

Really tasty (and authentically Polish) food and professional service. Good wine selection and overall interesting menu. The atmosphere could be a little bit less stiff.

Excellent experience in every way! We visited this beautiful establishment twice and could not be happier. We are doing a bit of a culinary tour of Poland and this is among the top. The staff was great; friendly, knowledgeable and passionate. The food delicious and...made out of local ingredients. What a pleasure to see this in Poland. Going back tomorrow!More

This was really an extraordinary experience. I’ve been to several places in Zakopane, but this one is really amazing. The food, the service, how everything is served. The best choice. Thank you.

The food was excellent. The presentation exquisite,. The service impecable. The setting very charming. We sat on the porch over the stream listening to the sound of flowing water. We were delighted by every dish, and the service which was flawless. The black bread with...local honey was to die for!! The least interesting were the deserts, though they were also very enjoyable. Overall a great experience for a couple or a family.More

I was just a guest, not the owner or manager. But I would say that this restaurant is not particularly children-oriented, because the food served there is quite a bit on the sophisticated side, when it comes both to... More
