Well, Polish cuisine is in fact German or Austrian cuisine only a but rougher. Try the Shashlik - a scewer on absolutely succulent grilled beef accompanied by a fresh krautsalat,(some kind of coleslaw) bratkartoffeln (chipped potatoes) and pickles. Avoid the sausages - you won´t find...More

Comida polonesa, cervejas russas, e uma sobremesa especial. Meus pratos favoritos são o arenque curtido com creme de leite e cebolas, a salada de batatas e o pato, mas tudo ali é delicioso. A sobremesa pela qual a casa é famosa - um levíssimo suflê...More

The restaurant looks like it hasn't changed since the 80's, very traditional spot in Copacabana. The menu also does not have the biggest variety but everrything I ever ate there was fantastic. Try the Batida!

Copacabana
The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
