Oberża Chłopska (peasant’s tavern) is a lovely Polish restaurant that you will definitely want to return to. There is a beautiful terrace that is perfect to sit, eat and drink at on a warm evening.
I’m not the biggest fan of gimmicks in decor. I believe that when you go to a restaurant, the food should speak for itself. I have been avoiding this place for quite a while for that reason. From the outside the place looks like something from the Lord of the Rings or the Princess Bride. And inside it’s like a ski chalet in the mountains of Poland.
The other day, however, I was coming back from a very long walk in the Arkonski Forest and I decided to stop in and have a drink and a snack. The first thing that won me over was the warm welcome and very pleasant service. The next thing that got me was the goat. 🙂 I love goats! There are two of them living in a little house in the front of the restaurant.
Service: What can I say. I can’t wait to go there again! The people make you feel like you are very important. I heard a man behind me ask for cucumber salad, which was not on the menu.
“No problem sir! The kitchen will be happy to prepare cucumber salad for you”!
Wow! Service like that is really hard to find in Poland!
Food: This place is for meat eaters! Vegetarians will have very limited options here. But hey! It’s a Polish restaurant! As far as presentation goes, the kitchen does garnish the food but as you can see from the photos, the food is much better in your mouth than in a camera lens. DON’T be discouraged by the photos! The food tastes absolutely delicious and is cooked to perfection!
Location: This place is a bit out of the way and yet it is very accessible. I think the location of this place could be great if you are looking for a private place. It gets crowded on the weekends but during the week and on winter evenings I think this place could be a very romantic place to take your date. There is a tram stop (3 and 10) five minutes walking from here. The Arkonka swimming park is five minutes in the other direction. Lake Głębokie is not far and the ruins of Quistorp Tower are a short hike up one of the many trails in the area.
