    Welcome to a highlander's cottage! Hand-painted glass pictures, sheaves of straw and the smiling farmer's wife greeting all the arriving guests. The exceptional charm, simplicity and exquisite cuisine of the Podhale region - these are the attributes of the in „Bacówka" which has enchanted the dwellers of Lodz since the first days of its presence in the city.

    Everything here is „in tune", the waitresses' folk costumes, menu written on a board and the original names of dishes.

    You should drop in there to feel as if you were in the Podhale (Polish Highlands) region and to try Polish traditional simple food. it. Briefly speaking, anything you choose from the menu will be delicious and will fill you to the brim. And, to tell you the truth, I don't think you will have enough energy to order dessert

    Favorite Dish: Sour soup with white sousage, served in bread!!and dumplings with sheep’s cheese and - I love it!

    Well, we ended up at the outdoor terrace of this pub/restaurant for some lunch after we didn't get served for ages in another restaurant.

    The service was attentive but didn't really speak any English but she went to get the girl from the bar who was helpful.

    I ordered a chicken filet with fries. All the local people only ordered a plate of fries between them and when I saw the portion that came I understood why. Anyway, the chicken filet was on the rather dry side but edible. My dish cost 22 PLN, icetea and juice cost 4 PLN each.

  • Irish Pub: Perhaps the best Irish atmosphere in Lodz

    It's one of the places where the real Irish pub atmosphere can be seen outside Ireland. I've been to many pubs in Ireland and when I want to experience the same here, in Lodz, Irish Pub is the obvious choice.

    True Irish beers, including Guinness and Kilkenny, live music every night and the dark Irish look'n'feel of the place does that for me. You won't be disappointed with the food either - the choice varies from vegetarian dishes to huge tasty steaks. There is also a wide selection of wines and beverages to accompany your meal. For undecided, waiters and waitresses gladly offer a great help and recommendations.

    If you like Irish atmosphere, don't miss that place!

    Cafe Tuwim: authentic kosher food

    by sphynxxs Written Jan 20, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a number of Jewish themed restaurants in Lodz, but just like in many other places in Poland, they are a bit "fake". Cafe Tuwim, named after the famous Polish-Jewish poet, is the only truly kosher restaurant in Lodz. No wonder - it is right next to the community center of the small Hassidic community of Lodz. The owner is a very friendly man who loves to chat with customers when there is not too much business,and the atmosphere is relaxed and homely. The restaurant is closed on Saturdays

    Favorite Dish: I liked the pancakes and falafel a lot, some good soups as well

    Klub Piotrkowska 97: 100% Atmosphere

    by Khrystene Written Aug 3, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pic. c/o Klub P's website - the outdoor garden!

    Local yet international, in every way.

    Favorite Dish: When in Rome, do as the Romans do...

    This is the case in Poland too. So the local style fare is always the best, because they're experts at cooking it.

    Contrary to popular misconception, Polish food is far from stodgy, and not bland... it's homestyle, yet more and more, Poles are experimenting with it, and coming up with the goods.

    I recommend the daily menu which usually costs around 12zl, which is a pittance for a good hearty feed. Including dessert - which Poles do best of anyone in the world!

    ziemia obiecana: Eating in the "promised land"

    by sphynxxs Written Mar 23, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ziemia Obiecana (promised land) refers to the name lodz had in 19th century as the boomtown of the textile industry and "cotton barons". The architecture reminds of the dining rooms in the fabricant palaces - but there is also an adjoining pub with a "proletarian-revolutionary" style, and the dishes remind of the old multiethnic mix of Lodz: There is Polish cooking as well as typical German, Russian or Jewish dishes

    Favorite Dish: hard to pick, given the ethnic diversity! But I always like pierogy or zurek, a sour rye soup

    An old-fashioned polish tavern. The place is decorated in a folk style. The waiters wear colorful, traditional folk costumes from the Podhale region (in the mountains). Many items on the menu have original Podhale dialect spellings so it might get difficult trying to figure out what's what even if you know polish. But that's the whole fun of it!!!

    My favorite feature of Hortex are the trees that were left growing inside of the cafe. The holes were cut out in the ceiling to accomodate the tree trunks. It's easy to spot this venue because you can see the trees growing out from the building when you're walking along Piotrkowska Street.

    Favorite Dish: all kind of desserts

    You shouldn't miss the restaurant's elegant interiors.

    Favorite Dish: This exclusive restaurant serves fine polish and other european cusine. It's still not too expensive looking at it from the western perspective (~35 zloty for an entree).

    I'm using my friend's help on this subject. I haven't been to Lodz in a few years now. Many things changed. I asked him to recommend a few places to me. I'm going to Lodz this summer and I want to know the places that cannot be missed.
    I trust his judgement so if you decide to go there I hope you like them too.

    Manufactura is a mall located in the middle of Lodz, in restored factory buildings.
