The “Pod Pretekstem” café and restaurant is located in the building of Poznan Castle in the city centre. It has two rooms with a capacity of around 150 people. In the summer we open our Garden situated on the Rose Courtyard of the Castle. Our rich menu includes traditional Poznan dishes such as: trotters in aspic, Wielkopolska pork knuckle (cooked) served with cabbage, czernina (soup made of broth and duck blood). Pod Pretekstem is also the place where representatives of Poznan’s artistic environment meet. Regularly held concerts attract crowds of enthusiasts of all kinds of chamber music: ballads, acoustic jazz, ethnic and folk music and, above all, poetic song and all music and literary forms.
