Rustic polish food , very affordable, friendly staff.

We read the other reviews for Chata and chose to visit on our first night. We enjoyed the open fire and the relaxed atmosphere and upbeat polish music( especially the horse track?!) We were looking to try some polish food and found almost everything we were looking for on the menu. The food was... read more

Group of 5 of us from UK. A great find, lovely wooden interior, just out of old town, traditional Polish food, had a beer with ginger that was lovely! Food very good and a very attentive waitress. Would definitively eat here again-shame we are going home tomorrow! Goulash with potato great.

Went here after reading all the positive reviews about it on trip advisor and we were not disappointed!! Appeared to be only 1 waitress for the whole restaurant but she did a fine job, we weren't kept waiting long at any point during our visit and she was very kind and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious!! I had Smoked... More

We visited here on recommendation from a friend of mine who visited Kraków a few weeks before us. We were very impressed by the food here. The decor inside is very rustic and the food matches this perfectly, traditional polish dishes and drinks. The stuffed cabbages are amazing, as are the hunters cakes! The price is even more unbelievable for... More

Amazing wee place. Cosy, rustic, excellent food, service great. 2 courses 2 beers 2 wines £20! Saurkraut and rib soup was really good as was the goulash soup in bread. Followed by pork chop (schnitzel) and amazing meat pierogi... although i would recommend ordering a side of saurkaurt as it is so yummy

Spent most of our evenings here this trip after finding it last year. It's incredible. Warm and welcoming and incredibly fulfilling. What you get for what you pay feels almost as if you're robbing them. The Russian Dumplings, Goulash Soup in bread and Shephards Moscol are all things I can personally recommend.

Many restaurants are very much the same so when doing my research I selected this as being a bit different and am so glad I did. One of the highlights of my trip and one of the best atmospheres I've experienced in a restaurant not just in Kraków but anywhere. You feel like your in an isolated log cabin in... More

What a fab experience, a must if in Kraków. Food very authentic and service was fab.. We called in last minute, late at night. Yes, only one waitress on duty but well worth the wait.. Maybe suggest trying to pre-book! Food was awesome and prices were too cheap for what you received... Can not recommend highly enough...
