This restaurant is a relatively short walk from the old town of Kraków (a walk which necessitates crossing some tram-filled roads) but is worth the stroll. Chata is decorated like some seventeenth-century peasant's hut, with animal skins over the wooden benches and uneven, white-washed walls. It is relatively cosy, and the food is good, traditional and hearty: nothing to write... More

Me and my girlfriend had been at this restaurant several times before. In general it was usually average food, but it was cozy and quite cheap so we liked this place overall. Yesterday we went again, my girlfriend ordered a particular dish but she got a more expensive dish instead. She didn't mind so much but stopped halfway and told... More

I don't understand what has happened to this place. We went in January 2014 because we saw very good comments on tripadvisor, and actually we really enjoyed the place, the food was delicious, the service very helpful and efficient, so it was a good experience. For this reason, we decided to come back (just 6 months later) and we couldn't... More

We enjoyed our meal at the Chata, very much. A measure of how good it was is that fact that it amply restored our good humour, which had been sorely tried by the torrential rain on the way there. The sauerkraut was excellent and the pork very well cooked. A pleasant ambience, which could have been very slightly improved if... More

We enjoyed the sauerkraut hunter's stew and couple of local lagers in this unusually decorated restaurant. It is cozy and comfortable, slightly away from the centre and fairly quiet when we were there. We have since enjoyed lovely food in many other restaurants here in Krakow and you are really spoilt for choice even if you are quite particular as... More

After I booked our accommodation at Hotel Matejko I looked for restaurants serving polish cuisine. I am so glad I chose this restaurant! We arrived and from the outside my partner questioned my choice but once inside it was like being inside a log cabin with furs on the chairs and traditional music played, in the intermittence there was the...

Food was superb! Great vodka. Look of the place really fun. This has to be the best value place we visited in Krakow.

We were looking for a traditional Polish dinner and found it here. Sauerkraut, hunter's stew, etc. Polish folk music played quietly enough to talk over easily. The benches and tables are course-hewn timber (not splintery), and the chairs are covered with sheepskin throws. Perfect atmosphere--every so often we even heard chickens clucking! They seemed to be coming from the kitchen,... More

We loved our visit to Chata. The atmosphere was great--felt like we were stepping back in time. They offered a menu in English and we quickly chose pierogies. They were amazing and I am still craving them--two weeks after my visit. I really felt like I was experiencing Poland with this visit. The staff was great, the food was great,... More

Nice Polish food here at reasonable prices. The smoked sheep's cheese and cranberry sauce is very tasty and the chicken fillet and black pudding with sauerkraut were all good. 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 dessert, 3 cokes, 2 coffee's and a plum vodka, all for 20 Eur. Portions not huge, starters on the small side, but you get enough and... More
