Good location, romantic and a bit rustic interior. Helpful and friendly staff. Menu was interesting, but one item unavailable. A very good level of cooking. Tried trout, ribs and pork loin. No complaints, everything was well seasoned.

I had heard so much hype about this restaurant that I was disappointed. Lovely building but the food was just ok. The surrounding Old Town charm and atmosphere saved the evening. I can say I've been but I wouldn't rush back.

Nice food, nice place, acceptable service (could be more organized). Not top one, but recommended, especially if you want to try typical Polish cuisine with style.

The restaurant is close to the central square of the Old Town (Stare Miasto), so it's easy to find even if you don't have a map or wifi on your phone. The location is lovely and the Imperial Style fits perfectly with the warm atmosphere....More

The restaurant is in the very heart of Stare Miasto close to the castle. Probably too much touristic location, but tried for a business dinner. Nice place, very warm and characteristic. Food is very typical from.polish cousine and well done: herrings with onion, liver, dumplings,...More

Food quality was average - salads not particularly fresh, fish also so so. Service not at the highest standard - we were kept waiting, not well prepared to serve wine. Not the best place in Warsaw at this location, at these prices.
