Best salad ever

We visited for lunch on a very hot day. We sat outside and ordered two large beers while we looked at the menu. As it was so hot we both decided to have salads, one strawberry and goats cheese, and one watermelon and feta. When they arrived they looked too pretty to eat. They were both absolutely... read more

You know how normally restaurants in a very touristy locations end up being a tourist trap? Glad to say this was not one of those cases. Initially we only sat there for beers and chips as it was too early for dinner. Later on we wandered around Krakow looking for a place to have dinner and since nothing seemed very... More

A fantastic location being located right on the main square. We initially wanted to sit outside in the sun but there was no room so the staff kindly offered us a 10% discount if we sat inside, which was a nice touch. We were given complimentary pork fat and bread whilst we waited for our food (which didn't take too... More

The location is great, the service was friendly and the prices were reasonable. However, it took so long for our meals to come out (a chicken dish and a soup dish). The food was delicious and it was nice to sit outside and watch the people and listen to the music in the square.

First time in Krakow and wanted local food - this place is on the main square and is really, really good. I had goulash in a bread loaf for starter - superb, glad I didn't eat the bread as I wouldn't have finished the main- tenderloin of beef kebab, crudité and rice. Meat melted in my mouth and veg was... More

We have been travelling to Krakow twice a year, for over 5 years, mid summer and mid winter. We always visit here, for the ambiance, attentive staff, great quality food and value for money. Entering from street level, there is an art deco, coffee lounge area, serving top quality coffee, cocktails, soft drinks, beers, food and deserts. There is an... More

We always celebrate our return to Krakow for holydays dining at Pod Sloncem - a genuine gem! Polish and international meny, very tasty, rich and varied! Good wines. Reasonable prices. Relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Located in the cellar of a townhouse at Main Square. Enjoy - but mind your steps - narrow staircase!

Iv been here many a time and always consistently excellent. Staff are friendly and the bill is always cheap! The pork slashlik is worth flying to Poland for. I will be visiting on Wednesday evening when in Kraków for the night and wouldn't dream of eating elsewhere!
