I had lunch with a few friend in the restaurant. It was empty and still nobody did welcome us. The menu is fine. While choosing wine, they didn't have the first bottle I wanted (it happens) or the second... Food was not exciting at all.

Aperitif has a great location that is easy to find. The menu choice is not impressive, and the sirloin steak is extremely small for it's price, however, the pasta with Kielbasa was good. The service was decent and the atmosphere was okay.

We ate here on our first night in Krakow, we hadn't booked anything so ended up here by chance and were pleasantly surprised by the presentation and quality of the food. The waiter told us straight away that the salmon was finished which for us was positive as it means the food is fresh. We had the cod and black... More

Polish Taster Set Menu 99zl (approx £20) Highly recommended. Great snapshot of impressive traditional Polish cuisine with a modern twist. Friendly service.

The food looked good, but it lacked creativity. The taste was dull, under-seasoned and creamy. A problem that most restaurants in Krakow seem to have. However, eating in Krakow is very cheap so maybe my expectations are too high.

The young chef Bartosz P has prepared a Polish tasting menu for 100pln including tartar, Zurakowski, vodka, boar and sernik. Honestly, it was the food highlight of our 4 day trip to Kraków. The food was presented beautifully on large white... More

Ate here our first night in Krakow. Service was good. A huge starter of meat and cheese. I then had wild boar with groats and Pakistan choi. Sadly there were only two tiny slices of over cooked boar and no Pakistan choi. The groats were lovely as was the wine selection.
