Twelve months after first visiting Starka, I returned with a friend who had not visited before and we had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. This place is so snug, with real character, and was lovely and warm on a cold January evening. The food was excellent and service, although not slow, was unhurried, creating a relaxed feeling. The menu is quite... More

We sought this out after reading reviews here, and we weren't disappointed. We got the last 'walk-in' table, and got menus promptly. We had prunes wrapped in bacon, pate, and pork wrapped in bacon with plum sauce. With two small beers each, the bill was just over £25. We had no room to try a dessert as the portions had... More

I tried the first night but it was too full. The second night I just got the last table with my partner. This restaurant is very popular for a reason. The food was gorgeous and beautifully cooked. They have an interesting selection of homemade vodkas, I suggest the ginger one. I ordered pork knuckle and my partner got the pork... More

We arrived just after 9pm looking to see why so many people had recommended this place and we're not disappointed in the slightest. The table was free and ready, drinks arrived quickly and the food didn't take long and was cooked to perfection. We shared a starter of potato dumplings which tasted beautiful. For the main I had ribs off... More

Excellent place! Perfect food (we tried different types of meat, chicken breast and ribs - tasty indeed), wide choice of drinks. The resto is cozy, with warm atmosphere and very nice music. Staff is very friendly and speaks perfect English. We even got some advices on souvenirs from Krakow. And vodka shots as compliments from the chef were very tasty.... More

A wonderful restaurant. The owners are very friendly and will make you feel at home. The food is great and it is nice to taste some different Vodka's. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We were there with a group of 16 and that was no problem at all.

After five nights of great food we chose Starka for our last night and weren't disappointed. Great little bistro style restaurant in Kasimierz area. I had the amazing pork knuckle which doesnt sound appetising and is not for those who dont like their meat to come with fat or are easily overfaced. The meat - loys of it - was... More
