Fantastic restaurant

i always make a point of eating here when in Kraków . Joanna is a superb host and always gives a great welcome. The food is always excellent and so well priced. The restaurant in not that big so it is best to book a table in advance. You won't be disappointed.

Me and my partner booked a table by email in advance after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The restaurant is very cozy and the service was excellent, not to mention the very affordable prices! I had the pierogis ("dumplings") for starters, rabbit loin for main course and their home made walnut cake for dessert. All of it which tasted really... More

We went there recomended by a taxi driver. The food was really good and also the presentation of the dishes. We tried the deserts and were really good too. We went when the restaurant just opened so we were alone. Anyway looks like a calm place to lunch or dinner.

We had a very nice lunch in this restaurant. I had a salad with deep-fried camembert cheese and different berries, and it was marvellous! My husband loved the pork knuckle dish and our children were also happy with their food. The service was very good and the atmosphere extremely frendly and relaxed. I certainly recommend it to anyone!

The restaurant was in a picturesque location and the inside of the restaurant was very cozy, which made our visit pleasant and memorable. Quite delicious food and great service. We recommend this to anyone who happens to be in Krakow.

Recommended by a write up on a local Kraków website we booked for a Sunday evening (live music Wed & Fri) we are quite fussy eaters and the menu with lots of local and European choices suited everyone. Homemade cherry vodka shots started the evening off, and it just got better and better. The menu has something for everyone, with... More

The restaurant was full when we arrived and there was a great buzz about the place. We ate tradiotional Polish dumplings to start with then had a selection of pork and lamb dishes. My french trimmed lamb cutlets were served with a sweet beetroot sauce absolutely beautiful. We shared a pudding becasue we were so full and ended the meal... More

We had a very pleasant evening in this lovely restaurant. I made reservations by mail (please do in order to get a table) on Friday, because of the live music. We had an excellent diner, good service and the music was a nice touch to this lovely evening. We stayed there for almost four hours. It's not a big place,... More

It doesn't look very attractive from outside but you get used to the low light inside. We ordered starka salad, beef, fried camembert cheese and a kind of sausage. Everything was good and looking at the other comments you pretty much can't go wrong with anything. Also for deserts we had meringue&nougat and fruit vodka, soo good. Also the staff... More
