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 Main Square bar and restsurant are good but pricy

Although they are expensive by Polish standards they are very reasonable by UK standards so worth a visit as it is lovely sitting on the beautiful main square on a mild day.

The main square in Krakow is beautiful and busy, with lots of restaurants. Those restaurants don't appear to be much more expensive than elsewhere in the city.

We visited Krakow for three days and spent a fair amount of time in here. WE didn't eat but the food that was coming out the kitchen looked and smelt delicious. With staff speaking a variety of European languages, the service is excellent, the drinks are reasonable and the outdoor seating area is wonderful either day or night! Definitely worth... More

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
