We had such a fantastic evening at Straka! They serve a wide variety of drinks and cocktails. Our waiter was so friendly and very attentive. We shared pierogi and bacon wrapped prunes to start, both very delicious but especially the prunes! We tried a selection of mains, including the bacon wrapped chicken and beef - all cooked perfectly and just... More
