Me and my sister went there after a long, cold hike in February and honestly, the restaurant exceeded our expectations. The good was absolutely delicious, the service was amazing and cheerful and we also loved the authentic interior and music. We really felt like the...meal was made with heart and as of we were in traditional Tatra house! I’m visiting again in April and will certainly be back even if there’s a queue :D We particularly enjoyed ‘robbers pancakes’ (placki po zbójecku) and starters. We did not have space of desert sadly, next time though!More

Everything was perfect. Friendly, chatty staff who recommends and advise on best options from menu. Open fire, authentic interior. Food came really fast and was really tasty- everything ! Great value for money. We spend there a lovely afternoon. I do highly recommend.

Restaurant with regional dishes. The staff was quite funny but in kind of folklore style. The food was very tasty in affordable price.

Very average food. The waiter, band playing and the interior of the restaurant were great but food not very much. I dont understand how this can be one of the tops regarding the food.

Food was terrible. Ham was hard the same like beef or lamb. It wasn’t made properly. Place is way too loudly and waiter is keep hitting in some big metal top of the grill to scare people’s. You completely can’t relax there. Restaurant is way...too expensive comparing to quality and taste of the food. Definitely will not visit again.More

Good atmosphere and good food. Rustic atmosphere mixed with decent service. We enjoyed ribs, tenderloin, shashlik, stag filet, and schnitzel. Also pierogi of course.

The food is fresh, traditional but with an original spin that makes the place standout. I recommend the herring as a starter, kwasnica is like Mum would serve it and they have the most amazing deer goulash if you're up for something original. Great quality...and lovely service. You will want to come back here for more!More

A genuine and very different place to eat and drink at Zakopane. We booked a table many months in advance, which was obviously needed as the place was packed on a Wednesday in the low season. The combined local “band” and waiters were an entertaining...element. Heavy and good food!More

Fantastic and delicious food. Though the walk is a bit more as you have to cross the entire main street, but its worth it on 2 accounts- You get to see the entire market place which is beautiful and of course the restaurant serves good...food. Should try tomato soup and watch out for what they put inside the soup. Pancakes, dumplings everything is good. Price is also decent.More

The ambiance of a winter mountain cabin with a fire pit and live music is truly magical. We love coming back here for the food and the cherry liquor. Do make a reservation! It’s hard to do walk in for a group. And if you...are vegetarian or vegan, just please try a different restaurant.More

Nothing special. Gulasz with potato pancakes were very avarage and very salty, Lamb was hard served with not special additions. We dont recommend. Service was perfect.

We had dinner here on a busy night and after a bit of confusion our party of 5 were seated with a local couple at one of the large tables upstairs. The evening that ensued was perfect and we enjoyed a fantastic meal and met...two new friends. All the food was excellent (salmon, chicken, meat platter), but the Pirogies with potato and cottage cheese and the Potato Pancakes were everyone’s favorites.More

Real oscypek is made only in polish Tatra. And it has to contain at least 60% sheep milk. Other cheeses are gołki but as much delicious as real owcypek

Hi apologies for the delay, yes I believe it has an English translation for all the dishes they also speak good English in there. Enjoy your trip!
