Found this on trip adviser was then also given it as a recommend from the taxi driver from airport. We had a really nice meal, very reasonable and nice wine. Didn't love the desert but not that it was bad just not for me - we both tried a typically polish dish which was the reason for the visit. Walnut... More

Just got back from a great lunch...sour rye soup for me; beet soup for my husband; shared the 500 gram boneless pig knuckle that was perfectly crisp and fatty and came with sauerkraut perfectly done with caraway seeds, mashed potatoes and mustard, horseradish and a sweet dip. Apple cake with whipped cream and vanilla ice cream for desert. Horse radish... More

We went here on the recommendations of TripAdvisor and a local person - we weren't disappointed. The food was freshly cooked, and one of them was probably in the top 5 meals I had ever had in a restaurant (boneless beef ribs in mushroom sauce, with mash and fried cabbage). The homemade vodka choices are amazing! You must book but... More

There is no such thing as beeing seated, having a reservation, and seeing oher people beeing turned away. "Sorry folks, fully booked." Probably a side-effect of the no. 3 mark in Tripadvisor... The food were ordinary. Big helpings, though. Best of the starters were prunes with bacon and goat cheese. The canapées were four slices of ordinary bread with lard... More

So, I had seen the reviews on TA before visiting Kraków and wrongly assumed it was in the old town.looked and looked and gave up! On final evening took a stroll to jewish quarter and there it was! Luckily for us we had gone out very early for food due to not having lunch, we went in at 5pm and... More

Absolutely perfect meal. Great atmosphere, wonderful food, friendly staff. We were a group of 16 and despite the place being full it didn't take Starka any longer to serve us than it did the empty restaurant we visited the night before. Despite the restaurant being packed it wasn't too noisy and the tables weren't too close together. Starter of Polish... More

We visited this restaurant based on the reviews on trip advisor and were not disappointed. The food was delicious especially the chicken and Camembert salads and the applecake. The atmosphere, service and value for money were all first rate

We went to this restaurant based on the reviews on 'Trip Advisor' ... and we were not disappointed. The service is excellent: the staff speaks very good English and was friendly and helpful. You also get a free starter (garlic butter with warm bread) after you order. After a long day of crawling through Krakow's streets it was a more... More
