If in Poland do as the poles, Polish food is awesome and this restaurant has excellent Polish food, go here for golonka and vodka, very nice staff and really warm and cozy interior, do you like it to be affordable? Well be prepared to be surprised, value for money is high.

Dissapointing. We waited for a long time to be served. Other tables had the same problem. Food was ok. Owners behave like they don't care and left everything in the hands of one waitress, who obviously had too much on her hands. Total chaos, which the owners didn't seem to want to do anything about. We watched an elderly couple... More

We tried the baked Camembert and the beetroot soup with dumplings to start. Great portion size and very tasty. Then we had the beef stew served with lentils and the braised... More

Whenever we are in Sopot we pay this small cozy restaurant a visit. Here typical polish cuisine is served with good value for money.

We often go to Karczma when we are in Sopot. As for so many years I have travelled in Polen mostly in Sopot because of my wife come from there, and we have an apartment in Monciak. Karczma have very good food and the prices is acceptable so I can recommend the place. Dan Persson

We had one night in Sopot before returning to the UK after a week long roadrip around the Baltics and we wanted some decent local cuisine before we headed home - a quick search put Irena's at the top of our list and we were not disappointed. we sat in the pictruresque front garden and enjoyed a few cheap glasses...

This place came recommended by our good local friend as the place for quality traditional Polish food. The interior decor indeed very old Poland, quite atmospheric if not a bit stuffy. We came at an early dinner hour, yet many menu items were already gone. The manager (Chris?) was rather charismatic, so despite this letdown we made a reservation for... More

We didn't get into the restaurant as it is only open during the day. We went to the bar but had to sit on the patio as they had a lot of reservations. The host/waiter was pleasant and attentive. We had traditional polish soup, veal dumplings, perogies, crispy duck and carpaccio. The duck was unfortunately over cooked and a bit... More

We had a family table of 12, the entire table enjoyed their food, which was Polish cuisine, service was efficient and friendly. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a good quality, well priced, simple meal in a traditional setting in Sopot.

Meat was great, vegetarian food was not great, and it took 74 minutes for our dishes to come. We sat on the terrace, it was cold and no blankets were offered or put out to take. We were freezing. None of the employees were available at the terrace and nobody apologized for the slow service.
