Excellent

We ate fairly late in comparison with the locals and this restaurant was empty. It is a short walk out of town though. Food was the best we ate on our short holiday and is representative of traditional polish cuisine. We got the platter for 3 between 3 of us and that was way too much! The decor... read more

Compared to price it was excellent. The restaurant was clean, service was good, food was ordinary. Not many tourists, most locals when we visited.

I was looking forward to visit this place so much. On paper everything looked perfect - nice mountain cottage decor, fireplace, polish folk music, short, traditional polish menu, reasonable prices. Chata deliver in every aspect but not one, sadly the most important, flavour. Kwasnica (sauerkraut soup), one of many in my life, was ok but nothing more than average. For... More

I visited this restaurant on a recent trip to Krakow. The restaurant is about ten minutes walk from the main square in a quiet sort of area. The restaurant was very inviting with a real rustic shepard hut style feel. The seats were wooden benches covered in sheep rugs. The waitress was dressed in old style Polish clothing and there...

I loved this place for the ambience. Open fireplace, candles, everything made of wood, quiet. The food was good too, nice beer.

Original and completely unexpected in that location interiors, folk music and comfortable seats. However, I wouldn't recommend pancakes with spinach and cheese (although I love that kind of food and there really was a lot of spinach in it).

We ate here with our family. The menu contains various Polish dishes which taste good. All dishes are quiet big: we only had starters and a main course. Great to taste the Polish cuisine, nothing fancy about the food. But the interior of the restaurant is cosy and has a great atmosphere. Definitely would go here again, also because of... More
