We ate here for tea one night and it is terrific! It is everything Polish but very well done and really good value. We had two mains, two desserts, some wines and a Polish brandy for less than £45!

This was a good place but it certainly wasn’t the cheapest or best value, yes the portions were big but I still felt it was quite pricey. We did enjoy the breakfast the salmon was delicious.

It was good to return to Barbakan - and experience the same level of service and food as last time. There were no special menus for New Year - a relief really - although the rabbit did come with cranberry instead of figs (lovely nevertheless!)....More
