We just stepped in with without looking it up on TripAdvisor. The resultant was dark and cozy, there were just 2 other couples here, but the service was still slow. I ordered the fish soup and got a really bad stomach.

Had some drinks here on a Saturday night - 500 ml carafe of wine 44zl. Seems to be a popular spot in town. Live music when we were in - two guys doing covers of Oasis, Red Hot Chilli Peppers etc.

Walked in, thinking this was a jazz bar, to have a beer. I asked if they had food or snacks. They did, and I ordered shrimps (my favourite). I received a dish with 10 royal shrimps with garlic butter. Wasn't expecting so much since I thought I was in a bar, but! These shrimps they are making there... I'm lacking... More

This will be simple: highly recommended! Style is fine dining, but this is not an expensive restaurant.

A beautiful meal, chicken and goose dishes. Very reasonable with a good presentation. Chicken leg with mushrooms could have done with more vegetables! Lots of tables reserved and rightly so. But very dark in there! ...& hot!! Great ambience ...just hope my chicken was cooked through...as I'd never have known if it was cooked or not by candlelight! The dessert... More

Visited here yesterday and we liked very much. Our waitress was super friendly and took good care of us. House red wine was good and price was reasonable. Cheese plate was good starter and main course was Caesar salad. Very good salad!

Visited here with another couple. The surroundings are nice and modern though oddly you use the toilets of what appears to be an hotel at the back but they were clean. The food was really good the starter of goat cheese was lovely and the steak for main was gorgeous. Very well presented and though didn't look much on the... More

Eating here leaves you full of good feelings about the food and service. I had the cod lunch special for lunch and the beef tartare for dinner with soup. Tasty, good just about right and nice serving sizes.

Absolutely amazing place- not sure why it's missed by most people- maybe because the name is not very polish- maybe because it's part of a hotel but it is a place you should visit if you can- great feel, tastefully decorated - romantic- and the food was great as well. We stayed at the hotel but had to rush out... More
