We HAD to come to this place because nothing else was available,... I have been boycotting this place for years and I won't come here for awhile again. Service is so, so. Wine was good. We ordered fish - where the cream was "creamy like" waterized liquid. On top of the fish there was a lot and I mean A... More

Main course was a disaster. Wild Boar, prepared with som kind of christmas seasoning? Terrible! None of us finished the main course, but the waiter didn't bother to... More

You could miss this one as most people turn left at the Green gate, but if you turn right, it is just next to the gate. The decor is fantastic if a little quirky, but the food is fantastic as was the pianist behind the bar. Very friendly and efficient staff. The menu has all of the usual things you'd... More

Good food and good atmosphere. Only negative thing was that sometimes we had to wait our waiter a little bit too long to have service allthough there was not so many other customers.

We were looking for a spot where we could sit at the bar, have a beer or two and visit with others at the bar. This place provided all of that plus it is a really beautiful bar. We can't comment on the food because we did not eat there. We enjoyed it and recommend it.

We chose some meals from lunch menu posted by entrance. But we got at the table from the service the regular menu only, the lunch menu only upon request. After a while we got finally the meals: cold soup chlodnik was excellent, bigosz as a main course was good. The surprise at the end - 10% for service charged automatically... More
