This wonderful Polish restaurant is a brilliant place to eat - the food is delicious, variety of Polish beers is great, and the staff are friendly, welcoming and professional. Oh, and it has a lovely homely atmosphere too!

Excellent little gem of a place , small and friendly so don’t expect in and out in 10 mins. Slightly hirer prices for a meal but the food they serve can’t be found anywhere else in York

Popped in for breakfast and were blown away by the quality of food. Eggs Benedict on brioche, baked duck egg with salmon and spinach were perfect. Our boys had full English with proper black pud and homemade pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. The pancakes with just the right hint of cinnamon.
Coffee outstanding.
To our amazement it transpired that kids eat breakfast for free. Cost less than you’d pay in Costa and was among the best breakfasts I’ve paid for in years. Warm service and attention to detail. What a business!

Our French-Dutch friends needed some persuasion to go in. There was a French fine dining place across the street, a stylish looking tapas restaurant further up and then there was Polish fare at Barbakan with it's windows steamed up meaning that one couldn't read the menu.

They ended up raving about it: the rabbit wrapped in bacon was shared around the table, beautifully cooked and the cabbage leaves stuffed with rice and pork were so amply stuffed that one would've been enough rather than three. Excellent.
