Liked the rustic décor. The Service was good. The food appeared quite quickly. Two dishes, one excellent and one very poor, so all I can give is an "average" for a score. The winning dish was the Pierogi, of which a generous and mixed portion was taken. (They have several varieties of filling listed but will do you a mixture... More

The interior looked like old fashioned tavern. The plates/portions were big enough for 2 persons, so we have a very full dinner. There were no place for desert The waitress offered "zhurek", but we refused as we know from what this soup is done :)) ordered some "borshch". Soups were delicious (there was additional taste of garlic, which we really... More

This friendly place is full of atmosphere with interesting and traditional objects and furs on the chairs. The staff are excellent and the food is hearty and genuine - almost a complete opposite of the average British gastro pub where we suffer average food by snooty staff in order to feel comfortable having a drink. I went here twice in... More

The pirogi dumplings were medium. I asked for dish with no meat and inside the dumplings with cheese and potato was also meat. Did not enjoy... More

Very nice restaurant located in the center of Lodz in the pedestrian zone. They serve typical Polish dishes with a good quality at a very inexpensive price. The interior is like dining in a farm, also with animal skins on the benches. Very gentle service.
