The rooms in this old restaurant are stunning. You really feel like you're in Poland of old. Typical Polish fare; lots of meat, rustic dishes. Good portion sizes and reasonably priced despite being in the Old Town. Good place for business, couples or groups.

Good location, romantic and a bit rustic interior. Helpful and friendly staff. Menu was interesting, but one item unavailable. A very good level of cooking. Tried trout, ribs and pork loin. No complaints, everything was well seasoned.
