Went with high expectations but was not too impressed. Ordered the lamb and it was overcooked. Service was also sparse. The server was not too interested in helping describe the menu items and ultimately I selected my choice on incorrect info.

We had a lovely dinner in Restauracja Starka. We took borsc soup (was deliciou, although not a typical Russian borsc- meaning without sour cream and vegetable). We took a duck which was delicious. We finish our dinner with an Almond cake. All courses were amazing.

We had a lovely meal here for a very reasonable price. Steak was lovely, starters lovely, drinks varied, great atmosphere - a good proper restaurant, not clinical, cosy, warm and friendly. I strongly recommend this place for a nice meal.

So sorry, but we got no vegan options. We can prepare per prior order: small salad for a starter tortilla with humus and grilled veggies for a main dish fruit salad for a dessert Best regards, Jo
