Where to eat in neighbourhood

Restaurant "Mysliborzanka" in Myślibórz (Soldin)

ul. Rynek im. Jana Paw#322a II 12, Myślibórz
Tel. 0048957472191
Located in the center of the town opposite of the town hall. Externally not easy to identify as a restaurant and inwardly very kitschy and plush decorated, are the food and the service, however, quite different in quality: very good polish and international cuisine, served quickly and friendly at a good price. The fact that a lot of polish people working in the surrounding administrations and in the city hall come here to dinner, shows that here will be well and solid cooked. A partial german-language menu card helps when ordering.
