Eleclectic and Fun

I've only had good experiences at Kracovia. The menu is unique, its affordable, it's proximity to the university keeps it funky. If you are in the area, you'll have a good experience. I prefer to sit outside the back door in the patio.

It is a good option for a quick lunch or coffee. Nice atmosphere. It is also good to continue working since they have wifi.

This place is visually beautiful and the staff are pleasant no doubt, but its clearly aimed at rich alternative students who want an 'exotic experience' and have very little knowledge or experience of cuisine. 3 of us ate there and not one of us was satisfied with the food! we were so thankful that we tried the starters before committing...

The food is outstanding, everything is served with all natural ingredients most likely organic. No junk food is served over here so if you like soda Twinkies you are out of luck. Try the crapes they, are outstanding. Wait time is slightly faster than an average Costa Rican restaurant. Staff is very polite and helpful even if there is a... More

This restaurant has really healthy food and with a great taste! Every day they have a new dish at lunch hour for a very reasonable price.

This restaurant is probably one of the best options in San José downtown. Really healthy food with such a great taste and an incredible creativity each lunch. Polish desserts are fabulous! They change the menu the Tuesday and Friday night’s, definitely recommend a polish dish Pierogi! (Potato, onion, bacon and cheese), also the drinks and cocktails are amazing. Prices are... More

The food was good, and the drinks were ok, but we are pretty sure that the parking guard (tall skinny guy) stole my aunt-in-law's camera and binoculars. Stay away from that guy.
