“Nice atmosphere, but nothing special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

This is a nice restaurant, the food is above average, but I don't see why others rave about it. We had a decent dinner there and wanted to eat dessert as well and they did not have any dessert in their menu which I thought was odd. We drank "winter edition" beers, which were very nice. I don't know where the smoking area is but one could smell smoke in the restaurant which was disturbing. Overall a good atmosphere, but I expected something more special.

“Yummy in my tummy... Which is now significantly bigger than it was”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Found myself stuck Rzeszow on my own for the night so looked on trip advisor for somewhere to eat. Embarrassingly good value tasty food. Had the polish soup to start amazing was a meal in itself then pork and wild mushrooms which was rich and creamy. Couple of large beers and an ice skating death trap of a slide home, about as good as it gets when stuck on your own in the middle of nowhere.

“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The food here is great even though the outside of the building may make you avoid the place. Wine is expensive but the food is very good.
