Following reading various reviews about this restaurant we thought it was worth a visit. It appears to be a typical small polish restaurant with a bohemian atmosphere, we were made extremely welcome by the waiter that spoke very good English, the menus were written in Polish and English and so easy to follow. My husband had the duck with red... More

Went following a Trip Advisor recommendation. It is good and a little different - a bit more Polish that most restaurants but still with plenty of typical European dishes. We were in the dark red room ate back - nice atmosphere but dark and hot. Unfortunately there was a large very loud group of Poles eating when we arrived -... More

Decided to try this restaurant on the recommendation of trip advisor. It was only a few hundred yards from our hotel, we were not disappointed. The first time I had fillet steak, cooked exactly how I like it. The waiter was really good fun, started off with bread basket, we didn't have dessert as we were full but had a... More

We were wandering through Kazimierz on our second night in Krakow and I recognized the name of the place from Tripadvisor so we decided to take a look. The restaurant was very quiet and the service was prompt. Charming waiter had excellent English and made us feel very welcome. The menu is extensive and on the first night I had... More

We went on Trip Advisors' recommendation but after one step inside we turned back. The recorded music was really too loud

Menu was varied, food cooked to perfection and service not intrusive. I had the pork knuckle and it was the best crackling I've had in years. Only thing it needs is air conditioning! Struggled to finish main meal due to how hot and restricting it felt in the restaurant. It was cooler outside! Still recommend it though. Brilliant food.

We went here following some Tripadviser research and were not disappointed- service was good not fussy but pleasant and efficient, we waited around 20 mins for our meal. The pork loin with plums looked beautiful and tasted equally lovely. Also just the right amount of food for me i.e not excessive but certainly not a meagre amount. Ribs 'off the... More

We went here for dinner one night during a 4 night stay in Kracow. The menu was varied with lots of choice, service was a little slow, but I found it nice not to be rushed so was not an issue for me. The complimentary vodka was a nice touch after our meal. Generally a nice place eat, was clean... More

This place is authentic. We just had drinks, but enjoyed the atmosphere. Their in-house infused vodkas are amazing, especially the ginger. Not overly sweet like North American brands. I'm glad we found this place. We even bought some infused vodka to take home!
