We eat Polish golonka and it was really good, the portion was just right- not too big. Also I'd recommend a white house wine.

A traditional restaurant with reasonable food and wine. A little expensive for what it is. There are better and cheaper restaurants in the near area.

We were here for dinner on our first night in Krakow. Excellent food and lots of it. You have to order what you want all at once, local ambiance, very popular.
