It was my first experience with Polish food, and it was a great one! Delicious food, pleasant (culturally rich) decor and atmosphere, attentive staff. Next time, I'll try the Polish Table, which is unlimited sampling of all that is good there. I better get there very hungry.

Yeah, that pope, the Solidarno´s´c, Lech Walesa, that Lato team in Spain82... but I´m kind old already and most of the kids some years after the 1980´s have no clue what I´m talking about.

I took group of Brazilian friends to taste some polish food. I'm Pole myself so I was curious what food is served in the restaurant. We ordered Mesa polonesa so everyone could taste bit of everything. Great food and whats more important everyone loved it. We talked to staff and we were told that chief was trained in Poland which... More

If you want to try a real polish food you should try Polska! They have a delicious menu trial when you can try 10 different types os food. Staff is very friendly and if you are in doubt on what to order they will help you to decide. One must is the apple pie as desert. Just fantastic!

Great atmosphere. It has typical, beautiful, well maintained and clean decor. The service is friendly but when your request is not forgotten, it takes a lot. They are (or were) only 2 people serving, and with distinct functions. Excellent quality and taste of food. Lack on offering some kind of polish beers. The price, even without "groupon", seems fair.

As my grandparents are Polish, I always take advantage of trips to Porto Alegre to sample Polish cuisine. For two decades this was the only Polish restaurant in all of Brazil (until Maria Escaleira opened in early 2012 in São Paulo). I always order the Polish platter (mesa polonesa)but is way too much food. I would suggest you just go... More

Typical Polish food in Brazil? This is perhaps one of the few in the country! If you like German food, you will probably enjoy Polska too. Service is very friendly.

Anything you order will be very good. The quality of the ingredients are excellent. The portions are a little to the small side though. The decor has nice touches of what I think are polish items. The lighting could be a little dimmed.

I don't now if there's another Polish restaurant in Porto Alegre but Polska alone well represents them. You should try the "mesa polonesa" to get to know a little of everything they have.
