In a search for a nice dinner on 2nd Xmas evening we ended up in Piwnica Swidnicka. Going for original Polish food. Our welcome was the message that only cash was accepted. Our initial feeling was that service is terrible by the large male servant....More

We wanted to try some traditional polish cuisine and the place in basement seemed really nice. Well it turns out very unfriendly. The service was quite unpleasant, cash payments only, the cuttlery old and ugly, interior definitely need a refreshment and whole organization need changes....More

Generally a strange smell inside. They say: "the oldest restaurant in Wroclaw", but something did not suit me. I will not go back there.

Go to see the interior by all means - it claims to be one of the oldest restaurants in Europe (although the current decor is no more than 'cod' traditional). However, of our two starters and two mains only one starter as decent. The other...More

This is the oldest European restaurant, located in the main building of Stary Rynek. The location it's beautiful, with ancient painted walls and beautiful seats. However, it seems to be a place for rich tourists, because the service and the food are just horrible. Staff...More

We saw this restaurant earlier in the week and thought it would be a nice and unusual place to have our last holiday meal before returning home. After around a half hour wait we were reluctantly given a table for two. After a bit of...More

Description
This restaurant is located in the center of the main square and main tourist attraction of Wroclaw. Looks very interesting and welcoming from outside however when you decide to eat there it is a big disapointment. Very bad quality of food and service. You can find some negative reviews of this restaurant on other travel directories. I think this shall be presented here as a warning for all foreign tourists to avoid this place. Great location and good outlook seems to be a trap which can destroy your holidays in such beautiful place as Wroclaw.
