I don't mind 'pink' burgers or steaks but mine unfortunately was seriously undercooked. The waitress offered to return it to the kitchen but I ate the cooked bits rather than wait. In fairness I was not charged for the burger but surprised that the kitchen...was not able to cook a burger properly.More

A place definitely worth visiting because of the decor. The food is average, the prices reasonable. I recommend going out for a beer & snacks. An interesting option is the beer tasting set for PLN 19 (4x 125 ml).

Very fast and professional service. The pork knuckle I ordered was quite large and very delicious. More than enough I would say :) You can also order a set of beers (4 x 125 ml). My favourite was the gingerbread beer - I would totally...recommend it!More

I ordered a regional spicy gingerbread beer. For a brewery with such a good reputation, I expected something better. The beer was not too sweet, which I consider a plus, but it had a strange aftertaste, like an artificial aroma. The kitchen was already closed...so I have no opinion about eating.More

First of all, this place looks great. Very nice interior, it's bright, it's clean and music isn't too loud, atmosphere is fantastic. We came for the beer, but be aware they also serve food there but we didn't try it. What we did try was...beers they make themselves. Gotta say we weren't too crazy about those, but there's also variety of craft beers on several taps and I'm sure everyone will find something for themselves there. Service is generally very kind, but they clearly could know more about beers in general :) fortunately lady at the bar knew her stuff.More

This place suffers from what I call "a touristic place disease". In short - such places loose its charm and dive into poorer quality since even if customers will not enjoy the restaurant, there are always new tourists coming in so.. quantity over quality. The...food was disappointing (we ordered ribs with plums + duck in oranges), prices are a reflection of the location not the food quality, we could taste it wasn't freshly prepared. Also - i didn't enjoy our waiter to ask us wether the food was good. It was not but I didn't want to raise that topic as we were with our friends over there. I was eating poor food and had to lie in front of everyone it was ok. Awful experience. Also the music was disturbing. We get that the staff is young and may prefer to work listening to american rock resembling Green Day. This however was not matching that place at all. Restaurant holds a name of a Polish king and its interior is decorated with medieval style items yet the music which filled the place stripped it of all its charm. Our experience was disappoining and we won't be coming back. The wheat beer was good though.More

I wanted to love this place as I am generally a fan of gastronomic microbreweries. However, the service was poor (young waiter without any apparent training), beers were average (without a deep flavor), the food was served barely warm after we waited for a long...time. Prices were comparable to restaurants in America (overpriced for Poland). I suggest better training for the staff to start. Best of luck as I want the restaurant to succeed because the atmosphere inside the brewery is quite nice and I think it is a great concept.More

Good range of Polish dishes that can be washed down by excellent beers made on the premises. Best to sit outside as it can be a bit dark inside. Don't forget to try the gingerbread flavoured dark beer - it is excellent and unique, but...the wheat beer is also very good.More
