“Excellent Food - Very Filling - Good Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Went here while on holiday in York. The service was very friendly. I had the meat platter for starter and it would have fed two people, was delicious. We both had the Hunter Stew for main which was massive, neither of us could manage to finish it, even though it was delicious. We were too full for dessert. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

“Good food and great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Ate out at the Barbakan last night. Very good Polish restaurant; good home cooked food, great value for money and really nice atmosphere. Only thing to watch is the portion sizes- they are huge!

If you are looking for somewhere special to dine that is a bit out of the ordinary, offering both great food and unique ambiance, this is a place to go. Wide selection of regional and international flavours with excellent service make it really worth visiting.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Lovely Polish food in a slightly old fashioned but really pleasant small restaurant. Seriously good, and good value, Romanian wines. Strongly recommended.
