The location is good but the service and waiting time does not make this place worth visiting. There are so many better alternatives around. They only have 2 kinds of beer to select from. Despite very few guests it took over an hour for the food to arrive. The room was freezing cold as well.

What a disappointment! After reading many good reviews saying it’s “a must” otherwise the Wroclaw visit is incomplete we went to have a dinner. First impression was good, 2 fancy dressed waiters waited on the bottom of the stairs; you would expect to be welcomed and invited but it turned to be otherwise. Since we chose different sitting sections we... More

The restaurant is the oldest restaurant in Europe and the food is great. I had wild boar stake with vegetables and potato's and was worth the price which for a two person and drinks was like £22. In city centre hall not bad.

Well, we walked in on a Wednesday evening at around 6pm. We had to find someone to ask for a table. The waiter seemed to think about it before pointing is to a table that had a reserved sign. So we sat and waited around 20 mins before anyone even came to take our drink order. The place was not... More

Magnificent from the entrance to the food, this historical restaurant is a must-visit in Wrocław. Traditional dishes are served with decent representation and the staff are extremely attentive to the customers' needs. Decoration is just divine, making me feel like a flamboyant mediaeval place! The restaurant is located in the middle of the square making it a perfect place for... More

We had Polish chicken and beef broth - delicious! So tasty! I am Polish and this soup was the most delicious chicken soup I even had and my cousin said the same. Our husbands had beetroot soup with dumplings and was also super tasty, a bit spicy. As for the main course - pork and zrazy - nice, but could... More

I visited this place with a collegeous for a diner. The environment is very nice and the boar steak was very well prepared. BUT the service was somewhat slow and they did not accept any of my three credit cards.

I have stopped here with my dad and partner for the afternoon coffe and cake whilst sightseeing, as this supposed to be "The Heart of Wroclaw". I must admit the interior is really great but that's about it. The waiter behind the bar wasnt very attentive, I had to help myself to the menu. It would be much nicer if... More

After reading negative or average reviews for this restaurant we did not plan to go there but on the last day of our trip we decided to go there for lunch just for experience. We glad we did.

Description
This restaurant is located in the center of the main square and main tourist attraction of Wroclaw. Looks very interesting and welcoming from outside however when you decide to eat there it is a big disapointment. Very bad quality of food and service. You can find some negative reviews of this restaurant on other travel directories. I think this shall be presented here as a warning for all foreign tourists to avoid this place. Great location and good outlook seems to be a trap which can destroy your holidays in such beautiful place as Wroclaw.
