we used this restaurant more than once for lunch and evening meal and you only go back if the food and the service are good. Staff were very efficient and friendly. The food was really good and the city square location was fantastic. Great choice day or night.

We spend in Krakow a few days and decided to visit this restaurant after reading good reviews. Would I recommend it to anybody else after my visit? NO, not really - it was VERY average. If it wouldn't be for the location and the atmosphere of the main square this place is definitely not worth second thought. Very average restaurant... More

Been here a few times when I fancied a snack. Never been disappointed. A small menu but consistently good and inexpensive. I would recommend also the nightlife here as the staff are friendly. Only left at 3am Sunday night/Monday morning! Bad head next day. Ouch!

Me and my boyfriend decided to visit here because of good reviews. What a disappointment! Food wasn't special at all and sirloin stakes were cooked well done instead of medium as ordered. Atmosphere is the place to be, not the food.

If you are looking for a restaurant with outside seating on the square, I can recommend this one. My wife had chicken in pancake. In America, this might be called a "wrap" rather than a pancake. There were assorted vegetables inside with chunks of chicken that were curry colored, and a slice of melted cheese over top. I had salmon,... More

I was looking for a "Polish" meal in Krakow, and Pod Sloncem was the first name that I came across on tripadvisor. I really can not add anything more to the already glowing reviews for this restaurant. Great service, generous servings, very reasonably priced. You cant go wrong. Cheers.

Have eaten at this restaurant every time I have visited Krakow and I still absolutely love it. Food is delicious, service is excellent, decor is beautiful and location is perfect. Portions are huge! Have never had a bad meal here and intend to return again. Wehen I last visited I took a party of 12 ladies with me and they... More

Charming little restaurant. Wonderful service and they had a large collection of children's toys to occupy little ones. Broad menu and lovely food. Standard polish fare well done with some extra stuff like crepes. We got given a free toy for our little boy and the waiter carried our pram upstairs. Nice touch.

Okay, this is NOT a review of the market square part but of their down stairs restaurant. (you need to go half way down the corridor then down the stairs into the cellar). OUTSTANDING FOOD!!!!!! We each had the shaslik (i.e. a mouth watering perfectly cooked kebab) with wine for about 110 zloty. Service was excellent. Excellent value for money... More
