Seldom a Filipino like me visit a place like Olsztyn. As an international exchange student, it was a chance of a lifetime. I went to OIsztyn during the last few days in Poland after the culmination of my Erasmus study. We went dining at Karczma Jana. I don't know the name of the dish. Besides, like a typical Polish dish,... More

Another lovely restaurant we have visited in Poland - beautiful decorations and yet again the food was absolutely stunning ! The service was average I guess but amazing food and nice location next to the lake makes it definitely worth a visit!

Had a chance to pop in today for a quick lunch. I was nicely surprised with this restaurant, friendly atmosphere. Perfect place if you want to sit next to fireplace and have tasty meal. Will come next time.

I visited this restaurant purely due to the good reviews but was a little disappointed. The menu is small, very little choices and the food is just average. the restaurant itself is nice, located just inside a park and along the river with a big bar next door, but again, nothing special. The service was ok, just normal/average, there was... More

I like especially the fine decoration and the menu (various good meals). The terrace is really nice too, just circa the river. Go and have fun!

We really liked this place. The food was lovely, atmosphere was great and the interior was traditionally decorated. It is in the heart of Old Town, touristy but still very nice (after all, it's Olsztyn, not Paris) and the prices are good enough. My husband was blown away by the pork knuckle. The restaurant offers very nice internationally-inspired traditional Polish... More

I've been here a fair few times and every time I walk away with a smile on my face and good food in my stomach. The staff are attentive and polite. They were happy to listen to me attempt speaking in Polish, but was happy to switch to English when I got stuck. There has been some building close by... More
