Polish food. Big portions, but quality of food is poor. It's rather not a restaurant, but a fast food point.

Used to be good, not anymore :/ The food now is on the verge of being barely eatable, when just a few years ago it was my treat to go there once a week. Real shame :/

Visited on recommendation of our airport taxi driver. Arrived to an extremely busy restaurant (a very good sign) and waited 10-15 mins for a table. Were seated and ordered the officers platter. A strange mixture of meats.... some nice some certainly acquired tastes. Was however nothing too special. Drinks were good and atmosphere great, staff clearly working very hard!

Excellent food even though we didn't know what half of it was it was all great, fantastic food and now I've got to go for a nap before I head out. Best birthday meal I've ever had and the staff were great.

Big portions and nice atmosphere, but seems very touristy, almost like food factory...like FEAST and the waiters they run panicked...

The food was really nice for 2 out of 3 of us. The pork knuckle was really good I would definitely get this again. My partner had the Ham n cheese something which we assumed would be like a Kiev but nooo came and was more like a McDonald's meal.. soup starters were lovely and the pierogis too

The atmosphere was excellent with a live Jazz band. The food was amazing, in particular the pierogi dumplings, large portion sizes and very affordable. Great service too.

Very nice restaurant, polish ambiance, you will find it descending from Wawel Castle, with live music with a small polish group, it reminded us of Hofbrauhaus in Munich ! The portions are huge, although we ate better in other places, but food was good...we ate duck and ribs...and the prices are very good, inexpensive !

Thank vytenis61
