Description: In the center of Krakow's Market Square there is a restaurant which is passionate about the quality of its food, using only fresh ingredients. We are not afraid of serving sophisticated meals, but traditional Polish cuisine is also our specialty. Famous zurek (sour soup) in bread is a must for every tourist to truly experience culinary Krakow. A nice and helpful staff creates a cozy atmosphere for everyone, a true melting pot for expats and locals in Krakow.

The restaurant is situated in a small courtyard directly off the main square in Krakow. We had a wonderful dinner here for a group of 6 people! We sat outside in the courtyard and it was beautiful. In the middle there’s a fountain, surrounded by tables with white linen tablecloths and candlelit. Service was especially friendly and most professional. They... More

We had a late lunch sitting outside the restaurant. The menu had a reasonable choice, and something to suit adults and fussy children. Good value and friendly staff. Some of the guidebooks say that service is slow, but that wasn't our experience: mind you, there weren't many other occupied tables at that time of the day.

This is a great find in Krakow. The food was wonderful, especially the pork tenderloin. The service was excellent and friendly, and the cost is very resonable. I would love to go back.

Having found this restaurant, thankfully on our first evening, we went back on a number of occasions some for food and some just for drinks. the atmosphere was lovely just on the square so u can watch the world go by. would recommend the chicken in gorgonzola sauce and the lemon drops. very friendly staff

We stopped here for dinner one night. I had a bison burger and my husband had a traditional pork dish. the food was respectable, well-prepared and reasonably healthy. The patio seating overlooks the market square and provides a place from which to hear the trumpeters in the Maryacki Church tower (every hour on the hour).

We visited this restaurant a few times during our stay in Krakow and were pleased with the quality of the food on each individual visit. Once your order has been taken, the staff do not appear to be in any kind of rush, and only about half of the members of staff are able to operate the tills so you... More
