Staff are very friendly, the ambiance is really relaxed. A great place and I recommend the home made vodka, particularly the horseradish

What a lovely restaurant! My partner and I visited on a Monday evening in December. We had pre-booked a table and we were glad we did as all the tables were occupied by about 8pm. All the staff were friendly and helpful and spoke very good English (helpful on our first night in Kraków). We both ordered the russian pierogi... More

Having visited a well rated establishment close by the previous night my partner and I were initially a liitle wary especially when we told that they would not supply a jug of tap water only bottled. However we were soon won over by our excellent main courses. A very interesting menu hearty food for cold nights. Try the Nougat meringue... More

I went alone to Starka, without a reservation and managed to get a table (luckily). The place felt very comfortable, not too upscale but not dingy either. The staff was friend and spoke english fairly well, I ordered the Lamb for my main course and it was really good. A lot of the meals that i have had in Krakow... More

We tried to get a table in the afternoon, no luck. We went back later and luckily got a table due to a cancellation. Excellent choice for meat eaters but limited veg choice. Food is well prepared and portions are ample, except for the large pork knuckle, which was too big (but nice). Wine was reasonably priced. Desserts lovely and... More

As part of a large group I had made a reservation at Starka one Tuesday evening. The food was delicious, and the restaurant is cosy with warm colours and drawings by the Berlin artist Zille. They make their own flavoured vodkas, and for myself I ordered a horseradish vodka, but that was obviously not the real thing. Friendly and professional... More

The whole experience in the restaurant feels authentically Krakówian. Very lucky to get a table here, as we hadn't booked. So make sure you book if eating after 7pm. Atmosphere, food& staff all fab! We had the Boneless ribs in dark beer and wild forest mushroom sauce served with mashed potatoes and fried cabbage and Boneless pork knuckle with crispy... More

The food, drinks and atmosphere at Starka is brilliant with the added bonus of live music if you are lucky! The food was delicious and happily washed down with lots of Prosecco and very tasty vodka shots including one on the house plus a chocolate dessert to celebrate a special birthday which was a lovely touch  Thanks again to...

15 of us visited this restaurant. We had arranged tasting platters of their most popular starters with a complementary vodka. The main courses were stunning. I had pork knuckle which is always excellent. My wife had 'melt in the mouth' steak. Joanna, the manager, had arranged live music for us which we enjoyed and enthusiastically joined in with. For dessert... More
