I visited this place with a collegeous for a diner. The environment is very nice and the boar steak was very well prepared. BUT the service was somewhat slow and they did not accept any of my three credit cards.

I have stopped here with my dad and partner for the afternoon coffe and cake whilst sightseeing, as this supposed to be "The Heart of Wroclaw". I must admit the interior is really great but that's about it. The waiter behind the bar wasnt very attentive, I had to help myself to the menu. It would be much nicer if... More

The location is very central at the main square, downstairs with very nice ambience. The service could need some improvement in kind of friendlyness, but it was fast. We were a party of 4 and had a bill of 500 sloti. 200 out of drinks, but the amount was added to the bill of food without showing the single orders.... More

The service wasn't bad but the food wasn't tasty + the place is not really taken care of (very dirty lamps and toilet not in the best condition)

Place is nicely located. We came (8 persons) at 20.00. The drinks were served as late as 20.30, no 'waiting food on the house'. Surprisingly the palce wasn't busy at all (Wednesday afternoon), so no excuse for such a long wait. The starters were only served at 21.10, and the seconds 21:45. Pathetic. We were dying of hunger. And, in... More

This restaurant is under the town hall and we were told it was the oldest and possibly most expensive place to eat. We still went and it was a delight, You feel like you are in a baronial hall. Many tables were reserved but a kind waiter found us a table and offered us the menu. There are many regional... More

Awful, awful service! We phoned in advance to book a table. We arrived and no one had any re-collection of the table being booked. Instead, the staff just told us to sit anywhere. They were all very rude and miserable! Avoid eating here! There are so many better places to go! AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!

Based in the town square and attractively decorated similar to beer houses in Germany. The food did not live up to expectations and tips automatically added to the Bill - also don't take Credit Cards

the food is average and expensive however this is a place you eat at for the setting and atmosphere - its an historic "centuries old" restaurant and its location in cellars off the Rynek is excellent. However avoid busy times as service even when only a few people is below average, compared to high Polish prices. Go for the experience... More

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.
