A disappointing 5th visit, it is time for Magda Gessler to film a kitchen nightmare here, the standards have slipped with some of the food and staff. My main course was cold as was others in our group and the service was a bit 'hit and miss'!. Resturants can't afford to sit back and reply on the name associated with... More

Finally, what You say Bingo!! Located in tourist city area, very refined and great atmosphere. Excellent menu and good dish presentation. Friendly staff , as for language and service but don't expect any speed actions!! Price on line for food level.

Followed the tip from a hotel concierge who said this place was great. He was right. Excellent polish food for me, I had the duck which was delicious and a good fillet steak for my more conservative partner, she loved it. House wine by the carafe reasonably priced and polish cocktails a welcome surprise. All in all a good night... More

Our group of three had a nice dinner at Polka. The server was very friendly, the food was good and the drinks that started with tasted excellent. The prices are maybe a little higher but not very expensive. The atmosphere was warm and relaxing so overall a nice experience.

It may seem a little tacky from the outside, but the place is actually decorated quite tastefully and, more important than that, food is simply excellent (the autumn menu had both goose and wild boar and we enjoyed both very much). As for the service, not ultrafriendly but correct and professional; all in all, a good experience.

When you've spent most of the day travelling, by coach, plane, and had a tiring trek across an unfamiliar city with your luggage in subzero temperatures, you just want somewhere that's warm and welcoming, slightly familiar whilst also rewarding you for being somewhere new. When we walked in, I thought perhaps polka was going to verge on the uncomfortably pretentious,... More

What a lovely decoration inside the restaurant! Place was definitely a bit more elegant than some others nearby. Staff was friendly, dishes were guaranteed Polish food - and there was enough vodka as well. No complaints.

Don't expect fine dining, we went Polish for all 3 courses (when in Rome etc). The place was busy therefore they expect you to reserve, however, we were a Monday early evening walk in. The food was OK, staff very attentive but not too overbearing and friendly.3 courses and a half carafe of red wine. 200 zloty.

Thank WillBill55
