Restaurants in Podhale

The newly opened Szalas Chalet forms another attraction in Podhale. This restaurant not only serves ethnic food but is also a fine example of the Poles' strong ties with their culture. It is a spacious restaurant and the interior is done up thoughtfully to reflect the spirit and emotions of the Polish Highlanders. Displayed all around, you can see objects and artifacts used daily in their households. You can also see an original horse drawn carriage and a sleigh, and flora and fauna found in the mountain region. A large water driven mill and a big fireplace are the main highlights of the dining room.

The Szalas Chalet gives you the feel of a museum along with the ethnic cuisine. The menu is traditional but modified slightly to suit modern tastes. Over all it is a unique experience you should make time for.
