I loved this restaurant in my previous visits to Krakow and was looking forward to visiting again. I was disappointed that the non-polish tasting menu is not offered any more - that was the highlight of the menu and a reason to visit. My friend took the Polish tasting menu and it was not very good. I got a Cod... More

Delicious food. We got a basket of fresh bread after we order. It was fresh from the oven, warm and the perfect way to start the meal. We got a complimentary starter of pate and was just right with the warm bread. Beautiful mains of cod salmon and veal. We ordered sides which weren't on the mean. The staff were... More

Have to say that after reading these reviews, I was somewhat surprised and disappointed when I arrived. The decor is more of a cafe than a restaurant and the sort of place I would go for a quick cheap lunch rather than dinner. The menu is limited, and uninspiring, and the main course was lacking side vegetables and I had... More

We visited for lunch and chose from the lunch special menu - the baked ribs were out of this world and were incredible value for money. The cherry creme brulee was really nice, although I prefer it without any fruit in it, although I did enjoy this one. Really enjoyable meal and I would recommend this restaurant.

Ate here on our last day and had a great meal. Two of us tried different taster menus, one the winter menu and one thePolish menu. Both superb and great value. Most people there seemed to be Polish so seemed a good sign. The waiter was very pleasant and helpful and we were not hurried. All round great place.

Much quieter than the other Polish cuisine restaurants in the area, probably because it is noticeably more expensive. That said, everything is relative and three courses and a bottle of wine cost only £50 for two, which is a bargain. Service was very good. The soups were lovely and the wild boar was a great dish. I would recommend it,... More

Starters and dessert also very nice. Would recommend this place, only thing I missed was better knowledge from the waiter when we asked abouth the wines. The restaurant has a good winelist... More
