My friends and I wanted to experience the true local cuisine - Polish food, but for locals, not for tourists! Therefore we asked a stranger while exploring the Old town where could we enjoy local Polish food?

Walked past this place and went in on chance, and in hindsight we're so glad that we did. They serve traditional Polish dishes but everything is refined and nothing has that oily, fatty heavy quality that you find at some places in town. The portions are generously sized thou so you won't leave hungry. We had pirogis as a starter... More

Great selection of vodkas and nice relaxed atmosphere. Was busy both nights we were there and just around the corner from the Mercure and Ibis... More

Visiting town and feeling indecisive we tried this smart looking restaurant. Really impressed with everything: staff were nice, food was excellent, the restaurant was clean, and prices were good. One of the best burgers I'd ever had (a great advert for Polish beef) but everyone was delighted with their meals. The starters were huge though and we were embarrassed not... More

I've had żurek (even small portion would be enough for a small lunch) and buckwheat pancakes with mushrooms. I paid 26 zł for both dishes and they were delicious. They were served almost instantly. I don't really know why but the waiter made a really good impression on me. He was just kind and helpful

Thank marcin g
