The food and service was very good. Their prices went up.Not bad though.Two items on menu did not contain pork, they were beef. All other dishes were made with pork. So if you don't eat pork this place would be a poor choice.

We arrived in Creston looking for a place to enjoy a quiet dinner with real home cooked food and this little gem caught out eye! Our server explained how that weekend they had been making the very perogie's. It's clean, bright, authentic and felt like I had wandered into a "bubble"...a "Polish bubble"!! Although there is a tv it is... More

Driven all day from Alberta, on way to Kootenay Lake, this Restaurant caught our eye and HAD to stop to try their Polish Cuisine. Not Disappointed in the Perogies & Cabbage Rolls. Very tasty SO appreciated HOME MADE. Definitely like to go back and try most other things on the menu. Authentic Polish Food like we had when children. Thanks.

I found this delightful restaurant in my AAA travel book and it was everything it said it was -- delicious Polish food in a small, family restaurant. I had stuffed cabbage roll and meat-filled pierogies. It took a bit longer than we thought but definitely worth the wait. When and if you're in Creston, B.C., on hwy 3 stop and... More

The best dishes in eastern European cuisine I've ever tried. We stopped twice there and each time the ordered meals were very tasty: pierogi, Hunter’s Stew, Goulash and Schnitzel were made to perfection. The size of the servings was more than enough and worth the money paid. The restaurant is modest and clean offering customer indoor and patio seating. The... More

We had dinner mid-week end of June and there were few customers. Lots of perogies,, cabbage rolls, soups, etc. We found the food very bland, but I understand this is typical for this type of food. Good service and pleasant casual ambience. Prices were average.

The food was wonderful and the service was good. It is a small place with a patio and only one server but the food was so so good. It was a little pricey and that is why it got a 4 instead of a 5.

A bowl of soup 6 perogies and 2 mostly rice cabbage rolls 25 bucks......food was average...not a lot of flavour.It was good but not great. At those prices you expect great. Borsh was just ok, a thin soup. Perogies the best part of the meal. The cabbage rolls are perfect size but looked like 1/5 meat vs the rice...so little... More

The food is excellent but I'm rating it a 2 because this is the third time we've been here and haven't been able to get what we wanted because they were out of several of the main dishes on the menu. I am willing to spend money on great food, and they are pricey, but when I can never get... More
