Just back from a trip to Krakow with friends. They had been to the Starka previously, so it came highly recommended. It did not disappoint ! The atmosphere was great, the food delicious and for a city very reasonably priced. Gabriel the waiter was really attentive, and when he realised we were there for a 3 way birthday celebration, he...

I have spent 8 nights in Krakow in 2 visits and 4 of those nights have been spent at Restauracja Starka. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is lovely and the service is great, and on the last night, there was some great live music. A special mention goes to Gabriel, who not only spoke perfect english, was very attentive,... More

We booked this for my wife's birthday so was hoping for great food and pleasant ambiance and was not disappointed. The food was excellent and staff friendly. Prices were good particularly for high quality food. Maybe at a weekend you will need to book - ask for a table in the room at the back. (Email communications to book a... More

I try to visit Krakow twice a year, and always have at least one dinner at Starka. The place is great. So I decided to celebrate my big 40 there. We were a party of 22 people. The whole experience was really nice. From talkning to the manager Joanna to set things up, and through the evening. They made a... More

My fiancée and I visited this restaurant on our last night in Krakow. We had read some great reviews so thought we'd pop along! We visited at about 19:00 and it wasn't too busy to start with. The decor is lovely and feels very warm and cosy inside. The waitress was attentive and smiley and looked after us very well.... More

We booked Starks for our last night as it was well recommended, and for traditional Polish fare, it did not disappoint. Although not as good as Introligatornia Smaku Restaurant a few doors down, I accept that someone looking for traditional Polish dishes would prefer Starka. With greedy pie eyes, we over ordered and quaffed the lot! Superb food by any... More

We came here with a group of friends for New Years Eve and booked in advance for obvious reasons. Joanna and her staff were absolutely brilliant and treated us very well - quirky restaurant with a great vibe. The food was really very good; decent sized portions, excellent choice, impressive presentation and incredibly good value for money. This was actually... More
