Good location, romantic and a bit rustic interior. Helpful and friendly staff. Menu was interesting, but one item unavailable. A very good level of cooking. Tried trout, ribs and pork loin. No complaints, everything was well seasoned.

I had heard so much hype about this restaurant that I was disappointed. Lovely building but the food was just ok. The surrounding Old Town charm and atmosphere saved the evening. I can say I've been but I wouldn't rush back.

Nice food, nice place, acceptable service (could be more organized). Not top one, but recommended, especially if you want to try typical Polish cuisine with style.
