Quale Restaurant is as Łódź-like as possible. It can’t be any other way since it is located in the basement of the factory palace We have Polish food here, we have Russian, Jewish and German accents, because Łódź has been multicultural from the beginning and has always been open to novelty. We have a sea of alcohol on the shelves, because the Łódź man (not only the one from Bałuty district) has always liked to bend an elbow and the factory worker has enjoyed smoking from time to time. Finally, we have warm, cozy and dignified interiors, decorated in the spirit of time which in this city always evokes nostalgic memories. By the way, because Łódź likes to be like that, it is modern and eclectically

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Quale Restaurant. This was not our first visit here. Each time we are very impressed with the beautiful interior and wonderful climate. We chose the tasting menu to try each special and as usual we were not disappointed....Each dish was delicious and prepared with great care, and its taste and manner of pouring delighted. The cook most likely has a great culinary imagination as well as enormous knowledge and knowledge of flavors, since he can compose such sophisticated compositions. The taste buds are going crazy and they keep asking for more! It is highly praised that the restaurant uses products from local entrepreneurs. The waiter service is very nice, each dish has its own story, which is told right after it is served on the table. Nothing more, nothing less - it was great. We are already looking forward to the next meeting and delicious food.More

Invited by my friends to Quale, I was supposed to try something special and unusual ... Unfortunately, this evening is one of the disappointing ones. I waited too long for the dishes, and the dishes themselves did not make any taste impression on me. A...star for the decor of the place, which is impressive, unfortunately not the dishes. The cool design of the place is probably not enough to be delighted with the place.More

Excellent interior, very nice staff and the owner who came to ask if everything is ok. Concerning the food in my opinion the menu is too short and too expensive. Dishes are ok but only ok - aspiring premium restaurant should fullfill higher expectations.More

Thank you a lot for your review of the restaurant. It's not easy to read such a critique. I cannot help the impression that you had not exactly experienced the evening in our restaurant. Perhaps my feeling is mistaken, nevertheless, I will try to explain...More

Excellent food, interesting menu, served nicely, attention to detail. Good service, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Close to Michelin star quality at a very reasonable price. We paid 250pln for 2 people for staters, main courses a glass of wine and 2 craft beers....We were too full for desserts but we did see other people eating them, they looked fantastic.More

I travel all over the world, and in Poland is not so easy to find a restaurant on this level, for me, easly one Michelin Star. I can only say, worth going to Lodz only to be there. Thank you Agata & Piotr for a...fantastsic service! We've been here 22.06.2020.More

It was not our first meeting with Quale. We once again visited this atmospheric restaurant serving unusual dishes, tastes and visual sensations this time during Valentine day. We remember the previous meetings very nice, however, in our opinion this type of restaurant is not prepared...(and better not to do so in the future) for commercial events like e.g. Valentine's Day. This is not the first excellent restaurant, which probably for the their own profit, gave customers in this special day the average atmosphere, in this case there were: 1) two turns as in the canteens during holidays in 70's; 2) the queue at the entrance for waiting for the table ordered; 3) the previous round customers leaving the premises hurriedly; 4) no intimacy - a table next to the table as in the canteen; 5) repeatedly listening to the presentation of the same dish served at adjacent tables; 6) cold dishes, Of course, as usual, the service and manager showed full professionalism e.g. we have been apologized at the beginning for waiting. As before, waiters presented dishes professionally and politely. Dishes, standard ones, were delicious as usual, but those invented especially for Valentine's Day (heart-shaped), i.e. dumplings stuffed with goat's cottage cheese and the heart on the plate haven't been of our taste, maybe because of used of the too a large amount of gel but necessary to form hearts (hypertrophy of form over content). And finally, twice for sure: 1) We will definitely visit Quale again! 2) Certainly we won't visit Quale during any events like this one!More

We have been to Quale 3 times already and have always been amazed about the quality of the food and service. Reserving at Quale is the first thing we do when we decide to visit Lodz.

The food was excellent indeed but it wouldn't be even half that good if not for the extraordinary service by Malwina. If you're lucky you'll be seated at her table.

The food was delicious. For the lovers of meat I definitely recommend the steak. High quality of meat and well cooked. The service is one of the highest standard I met in Lodz. I also appreciated the suggestion of the wine to be combined with...the dishes I ordered.More
