Firstly a very good value for money restaurant with plenty of choice on the menu. Unfortunately we had not booked a table and the only seating available was outside. The night became chillier and after our main course we asked could we move inside as there were tables vacant with no further planned bookings that evening. This request was refused... More

Just behind the main square, worth a visit in itself, but we found this restaurant serving Polish food. Was good food and good value for us. The service was also excellent. Vegetarian options were available. The dumplings I wanted were finished, but I had an excellent potato pancake with mushrooms. Try the Eastern European wines. They are good quality.

We felt very lucky in our time in Krakow, that every cafe we tried on the main square turned out to have consistently good food. We were renting an apartment just off the main square in the square that this restaurant is on and loved the slightly quieter pace of it (even though just 2 blocks off the main square).... More

This restaurant is wonderful! We walked in with a party of 15 with no reservation, and they were happy to find room for us! They were efficient, friendly, and the food is great! I went there twice on my six day visit to Krakow. They have entertainment, and the ambiance is warming.

Probably one of the best options to eat traditional Polish food. Highly recommended. It has a great setting and atmosphere and wonderful food. The best restaurant I've been in Kraków.

Beautiful small lake surrounded by mountains of about 8000 feet high. There is swarm of people visiting everyday during summer months. Better to go in buses from Zakopane during summer as you may get car parking 1-2 km away from the place you start journey on foot to the lake 10 km far. One can cover 8 km by horse... More

Traditional food beautifully served - generous portions. Traditional folk music played throughout! Had to try the desserts! Service was quick even though it was busy. Great atmosphere.

This is a wonderful restaurant. The food is delicious! The menu is filled with many traditional Polish dishes. Prices are great, you won't leave hungry. There are several levels to this restaurant, we ate downstairs which was very cozy and filled with traditional Polish decorations, and music. We loved this place. :)

This smart traditional polish restaurant is located in the quieter atmosphere of the Plac Szczepanski, just a few minutes walk away from the busy main market square. It is friendly and welcoming and the restaurant offers both comfortable indoor and alfresco dining. It is the perfect place to experience traditional Polish regional cuisine and live folk Polish music. Our server... More
