Generally a strange smell inside. They say: "the oldest restaurant in Wroclaw", but something did not suit me. I will not go back there.

Go to see the interior by all means - it claims to be one of the oldest restaurants in Europe (although the current decor is no more than 'cod' traditional). However, of our two starters and two mains only one starter as decent. The other...More

This is the oldest European restaurant, located in the main building of Stary Rynek. The location it's beautiful, with ancient painted walls and beautiful seats. However, it seems to be a place for rich tourists, because the service and the food are just horrible. Staff...More

We reserved a table on our last night in Wroclaw. Sat for ages before our waiter came to take drink orders, which they got wrong. I asked about vegetarian food/what came without meat and our waiter scoffed at me. The food took forever to arrive,...More

Eat somewhere else! Stoped here for a late lunch because the place looked very interesting. Located under a church, the restaurant offered a very unique feel. The food however was not very good. The dumplings with different fillings came out cold and were tasteless. What...More

The food was certainly all right, quite tasty and well presented. We just had a feeling that this restaurant was a little bit touristy. By that I mean they catered principally for groups, bus tours, etc, rather than for the individual diner.

This restaurant is located in the center of the main square and main tourist attraction of Wroclaw. Looks very interesting and welcoming from outside however when you decide to eat there it is a big disapointment. Very bad quality of food and service. You can find some negative reviews of this restaurant on other travel directories. I think this shall be presented here as a warning for all foreign tourists to avoid this place. Great location and good outlook seems to be a trap which can destroy your holidays in such beautiful place as Wroclaw.
