This place does the most amazing goulash in a bowl made from bread. The goulash soup is so tasty and eating the bowl made of fresh crusty bread while eating the soup is just the best. I have eaten here a number of times in 2012 and 2015 and everything I have eaten has been perfect. It is great value... More

Service was good enough, food without character to my taste, nice place, but music was just for making love, not for eating. Good prices

The Pod Sloncem is situated on Krakow's Main Square. The restaurant is downstairs in the cellar which gives it a real step back in time atmosphere which I loved! We started our meal with the complimentary hot bread roll & a ramekin of a sort of Polish delicacy? On asking what is was we found out that it is fried... More

Went here with 3 friends for an evening meal whilst on a 3 night stay in Kraków! It was a pure fluke how we found this gem of a place but we were all glad that we did. The food (we had starters, mains and desserts) and cocktails were great and the meal was around £25 per head ( we... More

I have visited Krakow three times in the last 8 years and have been to this restaurant each time. My absolute favourite dish is the goulash served in an edible bread bowl. It's around 14 zloty (£2.50) and will fill you up for lunch! Service is really friendly and staff speak great English. Worth a visit at lunch or dinner... More

I can not praise this restaurant enough. Food is consistently good and so very tasty. We ended up eating here at least 3 times in our four night stay. It's in the main square but don't let this it you off! You will not believe your bill, one night we had salmon, steak (v good quality) 1.5 liters of wine... More

Right on the main square but hidden underground, you wouldn't readily find this place. In the evening there was a gentleman outside encouraging business and offering 10% off vouchers; usually we find this a bit discouraging but don't be put off here, it is well worth it and not a typical 'tourist trap' restaurant. We dined relatively early in the... More
