Mouth watering steak

We visited here twice as we found the did delicious. The first time I ordered the duck salad, then on our second visit I had the steak- which was cooked perfectly. It is more expensive than most of our dining in Kraków but still way cheaper than eating in the UK. Yummy!

Free bread basket was a nice touch. Only quibble was my glass of sauv blanc wasn't delicious, in fact it tasted a little watery but couldn't put... More

Been to this restaurant several times over the years and went back expecting the same menu. At first I was disappointed as the menu and chef had changed, but I need not have worried it was a truely wonderful meal. The chef gave us complimentary starters and deserts that were wonderful. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

We had just soup and bottled water. The soup was very good with lots of al denote vegetables. A bread basket was provided. One tablemate had the chicken liver appetizer and found it well prepared. I would come to this restaurant again when I was hungrier.

We have just visited Kraków for the second time, the last time being 4 years ago. Based on our experience at aperitif last time we planned to go again this visit but we were unsure what to expect based on some of the recent reviews on here. We were not disappointed though, staff were as friendly, helpful and attentive as... More

We went to this restaurant with a group of 10 while we were in Krakau on a business trip. It is ideally situated in the historic city center of Krakau, just a few walking minutes away from the old market square. Good was very good, so was the wine. Very taste was a glass of the Polish Belvedere Vodka after... More

My husband and I enjoyed a Sunday evening dinner in June at this quiet restaurant. The menu was filled with creative dinners combining some Italian specialties with more traditional Polish cuisine. We especially enjoyed the Gnocchi with pork loin, rucola and parmesan.

Aperitif is a great place to enjoy some fine dishes that they offer. I can reccommend steaks - they can easily compete with the best steak houses in Kraków. Though you might wait a while for your dinner, it is worth it, no matter if you chose duck, steak or mules. Very nice interior, fabulous roofed garden.

This feels like a topnotch restaurant without the topnotch prices.. great choice, the wine was delicious and the atmosphere relaxed but professional.. So, I shared a regional cheese & meat platter starter (10Euros) with my niece and for the mains we both fell for the of Wild boar loin with grilled cabbage, roasted potatoes and dried cranberries (14Euros) and it...
