Description: We will host you Honourable Dames and Sires, with a gladness in our hearts in the halls of a seventeenth century tavern with splendidly flavoursome food and drinks of all sorts. Our maids and lackey open the gate at noon and close them at 12 on dusk. Chy canst savour delicacies of the olden polish cuisine. And all these delicious bites should taste the finest when washed down with a quart of exquisite spirits. We will be delighted with your company. Thyncanst east in four chambers uniting ten dozen quests to the sounds of the ancient tunes of Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine. Crackling flames of blazing fire in the hearth will relocate thy back in time to the depths of Sienkiewicz's "With Fire and Sword". The letters of Scripture proclaim that when father and mother are no longer thy will listen thy uncle. Alas, as thy uncle, I tell you and swear a solenn oath that thou will not find more mouth-watering victuals and beverages in all the land of Poland and neither in Inflants. I now what I say stands true for I travelled the Inflants far and wide many a time

“Lesson of polish cousin !!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

I read a lot about this restaurant about quality of food about interiors and service - and I have to say that's all true :) food was amazing ideal to start adventure with polsih cousine - huge portions and bog selections of dishes - I'm sure that everyone will find something interesting to pick. Interiors are like in old historical movie - wooden furniture and characteristic outfits of staff are creating unique atmosphere of this place. Definitely i will return there with my friends.

“Stunning, Great Meaty feast, with fun staff.”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

This please was great, the staff were great fun and gave really good service, lots of tradition food, great meat dishes and super broscht. Vary fair on price.
This plase had a great atmosphere, felt interesting and fun with well cook, priced food. In the gardens there is an old coach great place to sit and have a beer before dinner. I actually went in May 2010 and was so impressed I was looking it up to go back as we are planning a night in Krakow later in the year.
Would highly recommend.

“Traditional at it;s best.”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

What a great restaurant. Be prepared for lard and and lots of meat! The foor was great I tried things that I'm still not sure what they were. Everything was delicious (including lard as a spread for the fantastic bread), there were generous portions, and great local beers. The staff was very attentive and extremely nice.
