Polish restaurants are a bit thin on the ground in Newcastle so we were intrigued to discover this one. It's not exactly in the most attractive location but if you are ready to brave Benwell then the rewards are many.
The first impressions were very positive and reminded us of many we have visited in Poland - quirky, eclectic and unique. Mismatched tables and chairs, a piano, giant paintings, mini chairs hanging from the ceiling, huge ornate chandeliers - all go to making this a restaurant with a difference.
And the food doesn't disappoint either - tasty, generous and authentic. It's a meat eaters delight and those who had the mixed grill starter and the rye flour soup with bacon and egg loved their dishes. My cheese with baked apples and cranberry chutney was equally good.
The mains were excellent - chicken livers with mashed potatoes, pork with potatoes and my veggie option - crispy croquettes filled with wild mushrooms and saukraut were superb.
With drinks the whole bill for four people came to around £80 - incredible value. The friendly waiter topped the evening off with some Polish Vodka shots - not for the faint hearted! This is a real find for Newcastle and worth a visit for so many reasons.
