This restaurant is very similar to Owczarnia, because of same owner. Food is really tasteful, big big portions.. typical polish. They have their own beer - very good again. Only minus for us was loud music here, so it is hard to discuss with family around the table. So prefer, if you like to dance :)

Very busy and popular place opened daily from morning till night hours. In the evening place turns into a night club with a cover charge (probably due to concerts which are held there). Food menu is very rich they serve breakfast as well as buffet. Lots of choices especially for foreigners willing to try polish food. Cheap prices for pretty... More

Good food, amazing meat (truly hell for vegans, cause meat is everywhere). They have their own beer. Beware to order several dishes, cause there are square meal and big portions.

The food in the window looked great and they brew their own beer so in we went. Our beers were nice but the bar snacks let it down badly. The chees and meat platters don't come with any bread or crackers etc, just cheese and just meat. The potato pancake was mass produced and doughy, my topping was supposed to... More

From time to time a rstaurant is organizing live concerts of well known artists or groups. (Tickets) Unfortunately it was a restaurant - You have to be there earlier to take a place in the table. Apart from that You can try a fresh very local beer. Worth to see.

The place is located good on the main street, decorated nice and cosy. Food is tasty but average, local beer amazing! But everything is ruined by the staff! I found only 1 girl who was nice and friendly. The rest look tired, exhausted and dodgy. They're walking around like zombies or chatting on their phones (or with themselves). You're in... More

Great place, a must-do while in Zakopane. Delicious Polish cuisine served in traditional Zakopane highlander style. Private brewery included, worth trying.

I visited this restaurant/microbrewery last year and decided to try it again this year. The beer and the food were very good. Customer service is poor.....very poor.....especially considering the competition and the touristic nature of the town. The servers think that their only job is to bring food to the table. WRONG they are!!!

I came here to see the famous Goral band Baciary. I love their music (very cheerful). This review is not about the band though. At Watra the food is good and the beer is good but, my god, you have a problem with staff. Surly, moody and tired. I paid the young lady serving us to smile and be more... More
