Love its design n atmosphere-I could listen traditional Polish music continuously while I was eating. I think Polish dish doesn't fit on me well, but that isn't fault of this restaurant.

We had read about this in trip advisor and realised on the second night it was 100 metres from our apartment. Unfortunately we couldn't get in at 7pm (we were warned to book) so we decided to book for the next night. It appears that most people eat early in Krakow with restaurants getting empty by 9pm (that was our... More

We went here on a thursday evening quite late around 20.45h. We were with 3 friends. We stayed at Grodzka at the other site of the town, and rthis reatsuarant was a little bit further away from the main square. But when we found it, immediately it was really good. There was the typical Polish interior, music and food. I... More

Went to this restaurant for a very important birthday. The young [but friendly] waitress did not know whether the wine was sweet or dry. If wine was sweet, did we want to have white? Not without knowing! Serviettes wafer thin and only ca. 10 x 10cms. We asked for larger ones, not available. Food unimaginative and stodgy unfortunately. Atmosphere fine... More

Having visited for drinks and soup at lunch we were very impressed so returned for an evening meal, unfortunately this did not live up to the earlier visit. The food was very bland and just seemed rushed and pushed on a plate, the wait was considerable and the basics such as a bread basket were not given. This place could... More

We arrived without a reservation and so we were seated at a side table, which wasn't a real table but more like a side bench where they kept their menus etc. Although this was not ideal, we still enjoyed the food thoroughly. Very reasonably priced, perfectly seasoned and tasty. The Chata has a warm homely feel to it with fur... More

Although there is not a great variety of food, it is a nice place to eat Polish food. Cheap and cozy. I recommend it.

We visited this restaurant with on a trip with friends to Kraków. We wanted something the gave us a sample of some traditional cuisine and Chata did not disappoint. We were lucky to sneak in and even for a Wednesday night the place was quite busy and they turned away about 20 patrons while we were there. The ambiance is... More

Very friendly, warm and peculiar atmosphere, Polish and Russian music make it even more welcoming and authentic; better booking if you can, but we did not mind waiting at all. We had a delicious soup, pierogi and we tried a meat dish that the very good waitress suggested to us. All tasty and nicely cooked. It's 10 mins walk fom... More
