This is a big beer hall near Wawel Castle. Food is based around large plates of meat (two fish dishes were not very nice). Portions are massive, food is tasty and very good value. Daily special offers are only in Polish, so ask. (on Mondays you can get a litre of beer for 7.50zl). Service is effeciant and the usually... More

Very good food, especially the golonka and schnitzel. You get free pickles with beer and a free aperitive drink at the end of the meal..that goes really well :) Strongly recommend..my husband and I have been to Krakow 2 times and both times we ate there (the prices are really good comparing to the sizes of the plates).

Went here since it was described as a Polish Beer Hall. Some truth to it. Very large place. Wouldn't say that the beers are special. They are the standard beers of Poland, but the atmosphere and the food was good. Live music that moves around the different parts of the restaurant. Very busy on a Thursday evening in early September.... More

I enjoyed this restaurant and have been back a few times. The portions for most entrees are very large so be careful what you order. It's a fun place with a fun atmosphere if not a little chaotic. I don't recommend it for a quiet romantic dinner. They also have musicians that travel around the restaurant playing different music. If... More

Had a lovely meal although a very large portion which I couldn't finish. The goulash soup is a must. Do book in advance as it is a very very popular restaurant. The meal was very good value for money.

Well, you'll not go home hungry! The food is actually still very good though, unlike most restaurants where the portions are this kind of size. They've struck an excellent balance, and that's reflected in the size of the queue they have every day of the tourist season. Book in advance! My only complaint was that they needed a couple more...
