We wanted to try something different and after reading the reviews this place seemed to fit the bill.

I, and 8 colleagues enjoyed a fabulous meal in this themed restaurant. I am not sure what the theme was as it seemed to span a number of historic periods and styles, but that's just being pedantic. It was just "olde-worlde", and it was good. The food and service were excellent and there was a pretty good menu choice. Mainly... More

Before visiting this restaurant I was highly captivated by the amazing décor, and I was quite sure to find one of those festive, chaotic and touristy places where everyone gets huge amounts of medium quality food and as much beer mugs, with traditional dressed waiters and maybe a little band going around…Well, Ogniem i Mieczem (“With Fire and Sword” from...

Awesome food quality, excellent typical environment! A bit pricey compared to Krakow's standards, but definitely worth it. I was living 300 meters from it, so I visited it several times in the past 3 years. My favorite there remains the pork knuckle, crispy and extraordinary tasty. Among others, the shashlik coming on fire, the garlick duck, the warm bee and... More

We went there 8 of us for a dinner and tried many dishes which were very good. Portions are decent. Prices are quite high as for a polish cuisine especially taking in consideration that this place is not located in the very centre of the city. Recommend to try this place if you feel like eating proper polish food.

We had a wonderful group set meal here, really fantastic food and a great atmosphere, not sure it's authentic to Poland but the decor, setting and staff are all wonderful! Great time was had by all.

I are here for lunch. I had the soup served with croutons & ham. The beef goulash and cheese cake. All were good sized portions and very tasty. It has a nice outdoor garden seating area. Service was efficient. The place seems popular with celebrities.

If you want to try traditional Polish, you come to the right restaurant. Rosol z Koldunamy is my favorite broth with small dumpling and meat inside. Pierogi is dumpling with variety filling (meat, cheese, cabage/mushroom, cheese/potatoes) and they are just great.

We went here for the evening as it was recommended to us by friends for a traditional "Polish experience". Food was ok, big portions and the restaurant setting was very unique! I guess probably the equivalent food standard you'd get a average country pub if looking for a traditional British experience! Fine dining it is not, but if you're looking... More

The restaurant was highly recommended and was within walking distance from where we were staying. We received excellent service and a delicious traditional feast along with fine wines and beer (and of course vodka shots of sorts). The atmosphere was lovely with traditional music being played in the background with all the traditional features making this a lovely place to... More
