The goulash with crispy potato cake was amazing,,,everything on the plate was delicious..even the side salad!. Its best to enjoy the meal during the day on the outside tables with horses going bu and street music, very reasonably priced.

A great place to eat close to the City Square. Menu and service excellent, prices very reasonable, especially compared to restaurants on the Square. Good selection of Polish beers, I tried the Okicim.

We were three couples with three babies, and had a very nice stay. We all ordered a platter of meat for two. The food was very tasty, a good sauce and plenty of vegetables. It's located near the city center square. We recommend the restaurant.

We had an excellent hungarian meal in the restaurant we came across by chance. Although the decor isn't anything fancy, the service was great and, of course, so was the food. Good choice of dishes and good prices too!
