Found this place by accident, close to our hotel (Maksymillian). It's down an alley and not obviously a restaurant. The staff were welcoming. English not a problem. The restaurant offers good, wholesome Polish food and drink at very reasonable prices. For example I had borscht with dumplings followed by spare ribs with sauerkraut plus a beer for just over 20 zloty! The only downside is that it's a little way from the main square and is easily missed, but it's definitely worth the effort.

Not expensive, we did find better though and much closer to the Main Market Square. The dumplings were tasty and the place felt like traditional Poland

Down an alley is not always a good place to eat but this place was wonderful. Traditional Polish food and good sized portions. Very friendly staff.

This restaurant was really close to where we were staying so we thought we would try it as the reviews were good!

We ordered 2 beers and looked over the menu then another waitress came to take our drinks order... We explained we had ordered it from the other waitress who came to our table and she seemed really angry with us about it.. Very odd but eventually two beers arrived!

We ordered our mains from the angry waitress who neglected to mention that they didn't come with any sides and took our menus away! So when the mains came my husband had pork ribs and a jug of gravy... I had ordered hunters stew which advertised 5 different meats stewed with sauerkraut (which turned out to be hot sauerkraut with a few meager tiny bits of meat)! My husbands ribs were actually quite tasty and luckily there was bread on the table!

We ended up ordering another beer and then dessert, which was ok but nothing stunning and delivered once again by the angry waitress!

Very unsure what we did to upset the waitress as she explained to the table next to us that the mains didn't come with sides! The frosty waitress and lack of a proper meal made this a bizarre experience though we had a laugh due to how odd it was...

Certainly would avoid this restaurant, no ambiance, bad staff and a rather unpleasant meal!!

Luckily we had the address from Tripadvisor as this was not easy to locate on a dark, rainy night. The sign is quite difficult to read and the Restuarant is down a small alleyway. The food was worth it, lovely dumplings, and the waitress friendly with great English. Quite spartan surroundings but very clean, with 80's rock music playing softly (!) in the background.
