Just had a great meal in the quirky little gem. Food was fantastic and the place was amazing would recommend to any visitor. We had three main meals two glasses of wine and a large beer for 109 pln which is about £21. Not much English spoken but not needed. This is a must to visit

This was a really good dinner here and I recommend highly. The staff works hard as it gets crowded with tourists and deservedly so as it is delicious. The decor / atmosphere is filled with traditional looking items from the region and even the ceiling has dried grains and such to look at. Paintings are interesting and colorful from local... More

Food was very good and staff was busy but friendly. Prices are over the average but there's a nice atmosphere.

Strange place. When you are inside you keep on wondering where you are. Is it a shop for tourists? A private home? A private home turned restaurant? A tea room or a coffee house? Anyway a place where nobody will welcome and will seat you. When you enter just seat where you wish, it will be fine also for them.... More

Topical food (we understood that) with polish costumers and also tourists so it means it is not just for tourists . The lady was ok and almost didn't spoke English but it was ok to understand! We can recommend it! It is small and charming so give it a try. Good value for the money

Good value. I had the mustard soup which was delicious. Our mains;roast pork & potato pancakes were both nice. Very full after both! Disappointment was they had no meatballs and had to have bottle beer as tap beer had run out

Our group of three went here for lunch. We all tried soup; the beetroot was tasty and refreshing, mustard was thick but delicious and the sour rye soup in bread was very good. The mulled wine came in a large tankard and was great! Lunch for three came to 50PLN, so roughly £10 - great value for moeny

Can't complain about the place, was lovely & quaint, food was nice, but it tasted like the rest of the polish good we had had. A nice place to eat but I'm sure there's a 100 other similar spots in town

My hubby had read reviews on this place before we went, and as it was right next door to the hotel we were staying at, we popped in for a quick lunch. This is a Kashubian restaurant and very quirky inside!! You will find that everyone does hot wine, or mulled wine, which I love, and so I asked for... More

This is a Kashubian restaurant with local food and very specific friendly atmosphere. You really feel like in someone's house with all those paintings, fotographs and other decorations. There was just me and a local family celebrating birthday in the nicest a natural manner. Singing, drinking, laughing, ...this just clicked for me :) Highly recommended :)
