“Zombie waitstaff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

Great atmosphere is the only reason to go! The quality of steak (this is a steak house) has progressively gone downhill since December. The staff was too busy chatting with each other to get the initial bottle of wine and we had to ask for the second to be decanted. Half my steak was inedible. Most patrons seemed fussy and in need of service.

“Good food with great wines...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

.... and vice versa ;) Rather expensive, with good dishes and great selection of wines, well worth travelling 10 min from city center. Try the shellfish appetizer, also the goat cheese salat is great. And the duck is very good - esp with good red wine ;)

“be careful!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2012

If you would like to pay a fortune for middle class food in nice interior which was inherited by the previous owner - this place is for You! Be careful we LOST ( not spend ) 450 EUR in two hours ( beef allegedly from USA - which I do not care - price 400 USD/ per kg) . Also please check the receipt. The owner doesn't understand the business - this is for one shot - instead to pull our legs should care. but obviously doesn't . Skip it.....

“Worth the taxi trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

This restaurant was voted one of the best in Warsaw and our party of four completely agrees. We tried the 9-course sampling menu paired with wines and we were very satisfied with our meal.
The service was prompt, professional and very polite, top marks for that.
The restaurant was very busy, so it is recommended to book a table ahead.
The prices are very reasonable compared to western standards.
