This restaurant was my first stop once I landed in Poland. As a pierogi lover it was perfect. I tried the mushroom and cream pierogi and they were incredible. I also had a glass of their warm compote which was equally delicious. We also tried a mix of the dessert pierogi with the sweet cream. So good. The server was... More

A tiny restaurant in the heart of the historic old town, this is THE place for Pierogi. And Bigos. And friendly service in English. If you are in Warsaw, this is a " don't miss"...

We stopped over during our little trip into Old city, it's really central and easy to find. It's probably a 2 minute walk from the town square. Service was pretty good, food was nice and the prices were reasonable for a cheap eat. Atmosphere is a little lacking, but it's a pub after all!

Good food, cozy atmosphere, but pork knuckle has a little smell i couldnt stand.. nothing wrong with the way they cooked. I guess i was just sensitive.

We went there with friends who visited us from abroad. They weren't disappointed. This place has the finest selection of Polish food. Funny that they are a chain and the standard they offer is extremely high. Really do recommend them.

Excellent chain restaurant ! Always busy with local crowd and tourists. We ate in the Old City. Everything was delicious! Most worth eating borscht with dumplings mushrooms . Tasty filled dumpling=perogi with cottage / mushroom / spinach...mushrooms /onion/ / and spinach crepe are best when fried. Dessert was fine(dried fruit compote).

Traditional polish food at its best. Regimen on trip advisor and the wife loves dumplings so I thought why not. Busy but efficient we where seated very quickly. The food was amazing and the service was spot on. Fantastic meal! A must when in old town.

Really surprised in some reviews saying this is a chain. There is no clues in this restaurant. Individual Building and atmosphere. Had a wonderful sausage and cheese starter ( with Chopin vodka). Then venison stew with a Porter beer. Excellent. The service was 'local' not"have a nice day"! Mixture of local and business clients.

We actually went to this restaurant a few times. There are several in the city. It is reasonable for Polish standards. There were many locals as well ad tourists. I am not sure why they have people handing out fliers as they were busy. We had pierogies which were excellent, a goulash which was huge and other local food. What... More

The place was warm and cosy but the staff was pretty rude and reluctant to please the guests. Take into account that most of them don't speak English except from the manager, so if you prefer the meat to be well-done, you have to underline it more than one times before you give your final order. Although, I have to... More
