Been there twice for breakfast and a larger dinner. Not only nice service staff, but tasty food. Had the chance to listen to live music, too. Easy to find, one minute from the Długi Targ. All in all: wonderful!

We didn't eat here but had an afternoon drink. Staff were ultra friendly and accommodating. The cocktails were great. I imagine the food must also be great.

We had 2 ducks, the mussels and the Chiefs pasta, all very good. A bit noisy surroundings, but cozy at the same time. Quickly served despite almost full place, and nice waitress.
