I have been several times to this restaurant. The food is always cooked to perfection and the choices are good. If ordering something with fries, I would suggest to let them know to cut the salt. Otherwise, nothing to fault.

I love the space. Tables are not crowded. The host greats you with a smile and a welcome. The decor is pleasant with trees creating distinct spaces. This is refined Polish fare. The perogies are wonderful. They melt in your mouth. The fish is expertly prepared; cooked just right and so tasty. Game meats are cooked just right. New items... More

Went on a tuesday night with a friend as a goodbye dinner. Between us we had an appetizer, a meal each, dessert and coffee at the end. All of it was excellent, the staff was pleasant. The portions seem a little small on your plate but they are filling, though I deel you have to get one of each course... More

Our B&B hosts recommended this restaurant. The entrees were okay but the mushroom soup starter was very disappointing. The broth has a mild vinegar taste, the barley was under-cooked and it was tepid. For the price we've had much better.

Portions are generous, the food is tasty and service is efficient. Bistro Kapzak is the perfect place on a cold winter's night. While I am unlikely to become a "regular" because the cuisine is on the "heavy" side--not surprising seeing it is Polish-inspired--I would be pleased to return.

Everyone has recommended this place to us in Sherbrooke. We were expecting fine cuisine, but were left off with choppy chain-worth food. Does not look like the pictures at all, and is not as creative as it is said to be.

I had dinner with my boyfriend at Kazpak tonight. The food was good and the service was nice and attentive. The restaurant was quite empty but despite of that, it was nice!

The restaurant advertises as a Polish restaurant ...well, being Polish, I don't agree. There are some Polish undertones, but no more that that. I would call it a fusion food. Ambiance and the decor are very nice. Food was okay, but not for the price. For the menu (the printed part), I would say "so many errors, so little time".... More

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry for the errors in the polish writing. As well we don't advertise ourselves as a polish restaurant, we advertise as a polish/quebec fusion restaurant!!! Thank you More

Really nice looking restaurant with the best music, perfect ambiance. The problem was the food. We had dinner there for Mothers' Day and the restaurant was almost empty, the food was pre-cooked and reheated, the quail was raw, the crab mousse was not a mousse, the vegetable croquette was not crispy, the ribs were burnt and they served the worst...
