From time to time a rstaurant is organizing live concerts of well known artists or groups. (Tickets) Unfortunately it was a restaurant - You have to be there earlier to take a place in the table. Apart from that You can try a fresh very local beer. Worth to see.

The place is located good on the main street, decorated nice and cosy. Food is tasty but average, local beer amazing! But everything is ruined by the staff! I found only 1 girl who was nice and friendly. The rest look tired, exhausted and dodgy. They're walking around like zombies or chatting on their phones (or with themselves). You're in... More

Great place, a must-do while in Zakopane. Delicious Polish cuisine served in traditional Zakopane highlander style. Private brewery included, worth trying.

I visited this restaurant/microbrewery last year and decided to try it again this year. The beer and the food were very good. Customer service is poor.....very poor.....especially considering the competition and the touristic nature of the town. The servers think that their only job is to bring food to the table. WRONG they are!!!

I came here to see the famous Goral band Baciary. I love their music (very cheerful). This review is not about the band though. At Watra the food is good and the beer is good but, my god, you have a problem with staff. Surly, moody and tired. I paid the young lady serving us to smile and be more... More

We went there because it was open late and it was a huge mistake! First of all- nobody acknowledge our existence even though a couple of staff members walked by. When we tried to stop one waiter he only looked on us saying 'moment'! So rude! And he never came back! After 10 minutes we went to Stek Grill Restaurant-... More

We just came back from this place. Food was AMAZING and they have live music as well. Atmosphere is really good all the guests seem to enjoy themselves a lot. The only problem was rude and lazy staff. We had to wave to ask for more drinks and they obviously weren't happy that we did but really how long can... More

We came for the beer which is brewed next door to the restaurant at Browar Watra. We order polish appetizers and piroshki and enjoyed everything. We realized after our light meal that there is a restaurant next door and came through that side after we closed our tab. Upon entering the restaurant we saw this fantastic buffet with open seating... More

We always popped in here as it was on way from our hotel to centre. Beer was brilliant & the staff were friendly. Nice place for a pint!
