We visited this restaurant twice during a lengthy stay in Krakow. The first time we shared the "Officer's grill board", which was a large platter of sausages and assorted other meats, along with rice, potatoes and various cabbage dishes. The second time, we shared two crispy pork knuckles between three people. We added some potatoes and fried cabbage, but the... More

We stopped in for lunch during a day of shopping. The restaurant has a fun feel to it - giant beer steins and it's very open. We sat on the outer glassed in section so we could people-watch. I had the 'Officer's Grille' platter so I could get a taste of several local items - there was so much food... More

We decided to try some polish food and went for this place. Arrived around five pm, and it was a short wait to get a table outside. When we left after the meal the wait seemed a lot longer, I suggest getting in early if you haven't reserved a table. My bf had the plate with different meat and sousages,... More

Pod Wawelem is a great dining experience directly opposite the castle and really worth a visit. We ate quite late as a table of four and the experience from start to finish was a great one.The place seemed very popular. We arrived around 10pm and we needed to wait 10 minutes for a table. (This did give us the opportunity... More

We had to ask several people in Krakow for a good, popular not too touristy restaurant in Krakow, which was an arduous task. As the city is very crowded with tourists and two information offices kept us giving restaurant names which were in the heart of the Old Town, where most tourists gravitate, we almost gave up on eating in...

We meet a couple who recommended this place, we had to wait so thought that must be popular, the wait was not long only 10 minutes got a good seat and then waited for the waiter to take our order which was some time but as they were buzzy we did not mind to much. Got our food and drinks... More

I have been in Krakow for 3 days with my girlfriend and I went twice to this place, first because a polish friend recommend me the restaurant for their food, service and traditional dresses and second because I read a review about it talking about the quality and quantity of their plates so I have to say they were right...

Large portions, tasty food, good prices, live music - this is what polish evening is about. We liked it and went twice - both times were happy and liked the place. This seems to be a favourite and it is a good idea to book a table if you have large group and will guarantee a spot... They also have... More

This was our first stop in Krakow and set us up with high expectations for the week.. Half a Chicken with country style potatoes etc for the equivalent of £2.80.. (It was a special of the day but still). The cheeseboard was amazing for under £4! I kid you not!

The place is exactly what it looks like - a beer keller. The portions are huge and go well with beer. When we visited the restaurant it was very busy and also very noisy. Do not plan to talk business here. You will sit very close to other parties and yelling is the common way if communicating. There is something... More
