“Where's the service?”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

I'm still sitting here waiting for a menu. For some reason, the waitress bears a grudge against me? Everyone else gets a menu but me, not even when I asked twice. N no, I still didn't get a menu when I walked out cuz nobody in the service crew gave a damn.

“Great place with enormous portions”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

The place has a variety of delicious meals and their "dish of the day" allows tasting really good Polish specials at a very decent price.
If you sit indoors (like we did, because of rain), take a few moments to study the ceiling and wall scriptures - among other things, you'll find funny local sayings and jokes. Of course, if the weather allows sitting outside in front of the Mermaid - don't waste an opportunity to do so.
Note that they only accept VISA cards for payment - no MasterCard. Unfortunately, I didn't know that and had to make a short run to the closest ATM.
But overall impressions are purely positive. Totally recommend.

“CULT PLACE ON WARSAW OLD TOWN MARKET”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

"Bazyliszek" (Basilisk) is legendary Warsaw restaurant - counterpart to Krakow's Wierzynek but quite different level. It's a famous place in Warsaw and a bit snobbish but I find it a pub-type place. Beer is served cold, coffee hot and food is tasty but I don't like service and staff. That's why four dots from me instead of five.
Anyway it's still worth to go there to have a drink, coffe or meal at such a special place as the Warsaw Old Town Market is.

“Great spot”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

This place is really nice inside and the staff are great.Food portions are huge and very cheap.The pork chop is the biggest I have ever seen and is better to be shared as there is no way you will finish it yourself.Loved this place so make sure you check it out

“Great value and good food.”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

We had the 'special' which was schnitzel and was really good. It almost covered the whole plate. The staff were very friendly and an overall good experience.
