We had read that they had good food so we finally tried them out, or tried to. We arrived indside the restaurant just after their 5pm opening-only to be greeted by a smallish (rat looking) dog running circles around our feet!!!! The female owner's solution was to tell us where to sit while she called the dog into the KITCHEN!... More

My husband had the sampler which included three specialties (pierogies, sausage and cabbage rolls). I had the wiener schnitzel which was lightly breaded, generous and really good. Smoked fish is also one of their specilaties, and we had the salmon appetizer. All very nice. Full bar. Seating indoors or out. Live music scheduled certain evenings.

After driving around fruitlessly trying to find a place to park for 1/2 hour in Estes Park during peak season, we decided our only hope for lunch would be in Lyons or Boulder on the way back to Denver. Villa Tatra is our kind of place. Eclectic, different, relaxed, uncrowded, and unusual. The menu has about 8 items derived from... More

Large selection of outdoor dining plus a couple of other rooms. They have daily specials and polish beer. Nice assortment of desserts. The owners are very personable and came to our table several times to visit. Family ran. Definitely enjoyed the experience.

We were driving past on our way from Estes park and saw this typical Tatra mountain style building, so we stopped to check it out. Turned out this was a Polish restaurant in the middle of the Rockies! The owner, Ms. Elzbieta and her family welcomed us and we had a wonderful Polish lunch. The food is great, authentic Polish...

The restaurant is located betw Lyons and Estes Park in a small community of homes, surrounded by tall treed mountains. The bldg. itself captures the style of bldgs (dark wood, multi-level) of the ski town of Zakopane in southern Poland, which is surrounded by the Tatra Mtns. The Colorado mountains look very similar to Tatra mtns. I know and appreciate... More

My mother-in-law is from Poland and the food at Villa Tatra tastes just as good as hers!! Wonderful Polish dishes including cabbage rolls, pirogi, sauerkraut, and more. And the desserts are delicious as well!

Very charming place. Family operated. They have a limited menu, but it seemed very authentic. Everyone was very friendly. The service was prompt and we will definitely return.
