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.

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

Went to this restaurant after reading the reviews on tripadvisor which were true to form - the staff were very friendly and welcoming. I had the steak which was beautiful served with a lovely salad and chips, my husband had the pork. We had a lovely bottle of wine - unfortunately my husband wasn't feeling the best that night with...

My previous view of polish food was of perogi's and meats with heavy sauces. After Starka and Pad Aniolami was have a new view of Polish food and restaurants. We also ate in other restaurants in Krakow which we didn't find so good. Starka is about a 15 minute walk from the central square in Krakow. It is a safe... More

Service was very good. Enjoyed the food including Pierogis and duck. The best dish was the Prunes Wrapped in Bacon. Food gets 8/10.
