It's rare you see a place go through such a transformation as this. Formerly an old school Polish restaurant with folk motifs, grumpy staff and budget food, model turned celebrity chef Ewa Wachowicz has kept the basic concept and curbed the rest, whipping the menu and interiors into shape. Most notable is the lovely year-round terrace right on the Planty, which offers a tranquil escape from the high street chaos. The elegant, highly feminine interiors feature soft lighting, pastels and elaborate hand-painted floral patterns on every wall (which it should be noted do NOT represent Zalipie-style). Still, the modern overhaul is welcome, and most pronounced on the menu, which takes familiar Polish tastes and products and turns them into something exciting and contemporary. On a cold day, try the zalewajka (a rye soup with smoked meat, bolete mushrooms and potatoes). There's also a large wine and cocktail list and selection of local alcohols, including their own house nalewki (tinctures) - finish your meal with a shot of quince or rowanberry liqueur; or get a tasting set of six for 38zł. The perfect place to take the parents, and overall an excellent and affordable option right in the centre for authentic Polish food in a contemporary style.
