Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

We were a party og six whom visited this restaurant twice during our five day stay in Zakopane. The first night we went there was sunday night(sunday 2. march). We had pizza and one mushroom beef ordered. The pizzas were really good, but the beef was a bit boring and without to much taste.
At this first visit I would really like to point out that the service was extremly good! We had a male waiter. He spoke very well english and he remembered what each of us ordered every time so that the serving went really smooth. He was nice, smiling and polite. Some rare personal qualities in Poland!
The seccond night we were served by a young girl who was also good in english. Unfortunately for her, I have to compare her to her male colleague. She was very friendly and sweet, she did her job well, but she was a lot less observant and we always needed to make an efford to contact her when we needed something.
The food however was amazing the other night!! We had mixed grill plates and lamb. A meal from heaven, especially the lamb!
I would like to recommend this restaurant to everyone! It is cozy and had very good food. We really had a great time here and will love to come back next time in Zakopane :)

My husband and I love to eat.Every time we go somewhere we try local food.It's always a challenge as we are both very picky.The food in Bacowka was delicious and very affordable.Portions were big enough ,the only minus was that the first time we had to wait for service bit too long.Anyways,we loved the food so much that the next day instead of eating in the hotel we came back for breakfast.We are surly coming back there someday !

The gulasch was one of the best I've ever tasted. The paprika flavour was rich and full, perfectly balanced, and the potato pancakes were delicious. The atmosphere was relaxed, not too crowded when we were there, and relatively quiet too. Our ears got a welcome respite from the charming but somewhat monotonous folk music that plays in most Polish restaurants in Zakopane.

We visited the Bacowka for lunch on the day we were visiting Zakopane. When we went into te restaurant we were shown a table upstairs. I found it odd that there were tow waiters sitting a the table opposit us and chatting whilst we had to wait for menus to arrive...eventually, one of the staff got up and went to get us the menu. I ordered the traditional grilled cheese, but it was cold and tough. The staff only speak Polish so there is no point trying to explain the food isn't really what you expect. I won't be eating here again.

Always come here when visiting Zakopane. Their (apple pie) is simply divine. A local band plays most nights and the open fire is a roaring success. A must visit on anyone's list.
