Six of us had good meals, four of them were duck and the other two was crispy pork knuckles which were very nice. The staff were friendly and attentive. Try a couple of flavoured vodkas whilst your there.

We have just returned from an evening at Starka and felt compelled to leave a review. It was simply the best meal we have had during our three trips to krakow. We were delighted with both the food and customer service (many thanks Gabriel). I know my review will not do this restaurant justice. You must go and try for... More

Absolutely fantastic meal. We found this restaurant using trip advisor, so though it only fair we add a review. We didn't book a table, so was very lucky to get in. The tables were very clean, with knew table clothes every time, and well wiped. The menu is wide ranging, with many traditional dishes. My wife had beef steak, which... More

We went here after reading good tripadvisor reviews but were disappointed with the food. Very average. The service however was faultless.

Wondered randomly into this little place on one of our first nights in Krakow, and ending up having an absolutely excellent time. The food was by far the best we had during our stay, and the menu offered a great selection (difficult to choose with so much on offer!). The atmosphere was nice, staff very friendly. We decided to skip... More

Stumbled on this little beauty just by accident and was lured in by the homemade various flavoured vodka. It is very quaint, well decorated with a fantastic atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and the lady even went out to the shop to get some lemonade. Staff are very chatty and made us feel very welcome and even gave me... More

Ordered the daily menu, very reasonably priced. Excellent and extremely friendly service. Best lasagna I've had. Even the daily menu was made to order, which was impressive. I would definitely return and recommend.

We stayed at a nearby hostel -- the Secret Gardens and they put us onto this place. We had had 5 nights in Krakow earlier in the holiday and its a pity we didn't find this place earlier. Really wholesome traditional Polish cooking, unlike most of the other Polish restaurant this was very tasty and no stodge . Really friendly... More

On the basis of reviews on this site, we went to this restaurant on our last night in Poland. It was highly disappointing. The trout was so overlooked that my girlfriend hardly could eat it. My duck was better but overall this is a place where tourists eat and not locals. We may well have ordered the wrong things but... More
