“Good Classic European Food”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

You won't go away hungry from this popular Whyte Ave. eatery. I had the Red Barszcz soup, the Chicken Stroganoff with kopytka (24), and Apple Strudel (10). The entrée was quite a plateful, and a bit heavy. But everything was good. Ditto the atmosphere and service.

“Classic European Cuisine”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The food was delicious; very flavourful with great presentation and taste. The vegetables were perfectly cooked - still crisp with bright colours and the soups are very imaginative and good. I tried the Pickle Soup on a lark and ended up loving it!

“Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We were invited by our friends and enjoyed both food drinks and service. The cucumber soup was great and we had nice white wine too. Our waitress was very nice and friendly. I like the decoration and atmosphere too. Good parking facilities. I would recommend this Restaurant and would return again.

“A cultural culinary treat indeed”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

This was a very pleasant surprise. I was invited to eat here by a Polish friend and I was therefore ready to try their Polish items on the menu. We started with the pierogis. The cheese were OK but the dill mixture were divine with almost a fight over the last one. I had the Dill pickle soup which was a subtle blend but I loved the sample of the tripe soup- you must give it a try! The Polish cutlet(ground veal) was good as well but a large portion. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. The waitress was a gem.
