About
Pierwszy Stopień is a polish cuisine family restaurant, filled with plants which made it feel like the green heart of Kazimierz. We take special care for our guests to feel like at home. Whilst designing our restaurant we were hoping to create a peaceful, green and cosy place for our guests. We wanted them to feel the atmosphere created by our plants and to feel relaxed. The dishes we offer are inspired by the flavours we remember from our childhood homes. We use regional products bought at the local market. We want our guests to taste the cuisine we remember from our childhood, whilst enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and great music.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We went to this restaurant because of its good reviews and we didn’t regret! Everything was really good: the atmosphere, the food, the drinks as well as Maryna who helped us. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

Well visited this place twice on my holidays. First time for lunch and the food was nice but Dominic the server was excellent and very helpful I even got a discount for lunch time. The 2nd time was for dinner... What can I say the...food was superb. We had a beef tartare which was like butter (one of the best I ever had), goose dumplings totally worth it and would suggest it to everyone and leta don't forget sirloin steak cooked in perfection (medium rare) with a pepper sauce from heaven. The staff were always there for you kind, smiling and polite. Would recommend to book a table days before just to be sure you can find one. Of course you can just pop on and if you're lucky like us you might find some space.More
