Our party of eight had a great experience at the Knaypa last night. We booked a table in the rustically decorated basement area where we were looked after by an efficient waiter from Poland who patiently guided us through the menu. There were six British Poles among us, who had fairly high standards and specific requests, and we all left happy, full, and a little bit tipsy...

All of the starters were tasty and substantial, from the croquettes (krokiety) and beetroot soup (barszcz) to the hearty steak tartar with garnishes of pickled cucumbers and mushrooms, onions and mustard, which was ordered by two of us but sampled by most.

We ordered a wide range of mains and thoroughly enjoyed them all. My partner and I shared the traditional polish platter of pierogi, bigos and golabki and others had the pork cutlet (kotlet schabowy) and beef roulade. The surprise winner was the roasted duck breast, not perhaps the first thing one associates with Polish cuisine, but so succulent and juicy that our Muslim friend couldn't stop raving about it.

We finished with elaborately garnished and equally tasty apple cake and ice cream. Topping everything off was varied drink selection - several polish beers on tap and in the bottle, a nice wine list including selections from Eastern Europe and a large menu of vodkas at very reasonable prices. We split a bottle of Zoladkowa Gorzka - served freezer chilled in a bucket of ice with chilled shot glasses - all nice touches. Na zdrowie!

Hi there! I am so surprised reading all these negative comments about The Knaypa. I have been there so many times (including my civil wedding) and cannot be more pleased! Food is DELICIOUS, freshly cooked and nicely served. Staff is always polite and helpful. The atmosphere is just wonderful - romantic upstairs, great for dinner for two, and little 'montain style' tawern downstairs - great to spend nice time with group of friends. Prices are high but relevant to quality and quantity!

I am highly reccomending The Knaypa to everyone!

In The Knaypa restaurant we had a son's christening party.

Food was more the delicious, service was great - staff went extra mile to make us happy.

The Knaypa manager was extremely helpful, we could rely on his suggestions. My guests, my husband and myself we will remember this evening for a long time, thanks to great atmosphere, caring and very professional manager and dedicated staff.
