We were recommended to go here by a friend. Food was dry and despite asking for sauces we only got them when we had nearly finished ! Portions huge to be fair but none of the 4 of us ate all food as it wasn't great. Asked for another round of drinks and because waitress got it wrong she tried... More

We went here with a Polish friend, and were not disappointed! There was a lovely atmosphere when we walked in. The prices were reasonable and as you can see by the photos the portions were huge! Waitresses were very impressive carrying awkward heavy trays of food. Live music was played while we were there. Food was very tasty but could... More

Great typical polish family restaurant with friendly staff, where we enjoyed great schnitzel (flat veal meat) (1 portion good for 2 people) and pierogi (polish dumplings with cheese & potatoes… yum). Beer comes in ,4l or 1 liter, and we enjoyed the home-made lemony vodka. Nasdrovia ;-)

Our party of 16 (8 adults, 7 children, and 1 baby) were seated in a room with access to the upper level play area. The service was amazing and the food was superb! Everyone had a wonderful time and they even sang happy birthday, complete with instruments, to our birthday boy. The portions were huge and the cherry shot after... More

We went to the sister restaurant in warsaw and really enjoyed it. This restaurant however lacked any of its friendly service or any service at all. Anytime we wanted to order we had to try extremely hard to get the attention of someone, but all the waiters did their best to ignore us. They brought our main out before we... More

Traditional polish food - sausages, schnitzel, chicken, rice, salads, etc. Huge menu, and everything is very cheap. The restaurant can probably seat 500+ people, with multiple rooms. It's a great atmosphere. A very unique place! Make sure you share the platters. 1 platter for 2 people is more than enough food, unless you regularly consume 32 oz steaks for dinner.... More

It is well known in Krakow tourist attraction. The food is typically Polish (the restaurant is also known for its big meat portions), service is fast, atmosphere is very alive and usually the place is quite full. It is also almost the only restaurant you would find place without reservation (would probably have to wait for 15 minutes) on the... More

This seems to be a really popular restaurant in Krakow. There was a queue when we arrived but, fortunately, one of our party had booked ahead. Apparently, you always need to book. The food portions were massive - very meat heavy (a challenge for those of us who are not big meat eaters!!) but there is fish on the menu.... More

Great place to eat. Fantastic food and very friendly staff. Plenty to choose from on the menu, even for the children. The toilets could do with a more frequent cleaning.
