Visiting this restaurant at the beggining of your visit in Warsaw may give you idea that Poland is cheap and served plates are really big. They are here, but unfortunately not in all restaurants in Poland. They've been on the market for years and still if you go there in Sunday, despite tens of other restaurants around, people waith there... More

I've been here several times with work and wide selection of meals (with English translation) mainly traditional Polish and Czech as you'd assume from the restaurant name. Its the equivalent of your meat,2 vedg, tasty, not flashy restaurants you get in the UK. Very limited choice for vegetarians as per norm in Poland. WIde selection of Polish soups, meat mains,...

Food is usually good at this place. That is why I decided to try the weekly mules offer. Service was perfect as always. Nice table on the first floor. Beef tartare for starter was great. Then the mules in white wine. Well, not bad, however not uniform in size, from very small ones to really big. I think they were... More

We visited on a Monday evening and had to wait in line for about 20 minutes. Brrrrrrr. The special was "Huge Schnitzel ". And they weren't kidding. It was hanging off the dinner plate and I think at least half of the patrons were eating it. I thought it was a little bit dry myself but I loved the potato... More

Arrived at 5:45pm and were shown to last free table. Ten minutes later and people were waiting outside. The Monday special was 17 Zloty and consisted of bread, two starters, schnitzel, fries and two sides. A free beer was given and a small cherry shot with the bill. A total cost of 34 Zloty for two people (£6:40). The portions... More
