Description: Restaurant Pod Aniolami - Under the Angels" is an extraordinary place...
Restaurant Pod Aniolami - Under the Angels" is an extraordinary place. Some people say there are indeed angels in its Gothic cellars... The Restaurant, a laureate of many 1 st awards and distinctions, invites you to original, unforgettable and unique banquets. The place is far-famed for its marinated meats, grilled over beech hardwood fire and other old Polish dishes. The restaurant's historical 13th century interiors and brilliant cuisine based on Polish culinary traditions will make you soak up the atmosphere of the Medieval Kings' City of Cracow. At "Under the Angels" time stood still and one can still find the ambience of old Cracow here. Beautiful interiors and excellent cuisine attract renowned guests from all over the world. On the 1st floor, we invite you to The Chamber of Wawel Castle's Comptroller where during private banquets one can admire 18th century polychromes. There is also a charming year-round open garden with a mosaic fountain to which one can always drop a coin wishing to come back to this unusual place. The restaurant is located in a 13th century building at The Royal Route, leading to Wawel King's Castle. For over three hundred years the building was the residence of Cracow's goldsmiths who also had their workshops there. Today, the Skarbiec Gallery, next to the restaurant, offers artistic jewellery made by leading Polish artists.

Authentic Polish food with a marvelous ambiance!

Delightful small restaurant. As an appetizer they brought home made bread with a bacon-lard (yes, lard) spread. I know it does not sound appetizing and it is not something we would typically eat, but it was good. We laughed because we never imagined warning each other to "go easy on the lard".My... read more

Superb food, service and ambiance. I was happy to be seated in one of the lower levels where the architecture is so attractive, but you can't go wrong anywhere in the restaurant. Food is delicious. Service is attentive but not overbearing. Everyone in our party was pleased with their selections.

Only a few yards from where we were staying we had a superb meal here. Our waitress looked after us very well and we were served very quickly. Thorough enjoyed the free starter but meant no room for one of the lovely Polish desserts. Waitresses kept very busy as main restaurant is quite a way back in the building and... More

"Under the angels". Fascinating interior with lots of rooms and nooks. Reservations a must, one of the most popular spots in town. Pierogis lived up the billing.

We dined here with our friends and it was fantastic. The food was top notch, as was the service. Quaint atmosphere, too. I am a native and I thought everything we ordered was authentic Polish food, nothing "Americanized." I'm surprised it isn't higher on the list.

After researching quite carefully the 'trip advisor' recommendations and looking around Kraków for ourselves, we dined at Pod Aniolami (Under the Angels). The surroundings in the cellar were quite something and the food was a joy! I can highly recommend the wild boar, it was beautifully cooked and very tasty. The service was just right with the advice given and... More

I am not an expert on food, all I can say was the atmosphere very unique. The food was well presented, enjoyable and satisfying. Our mains were risotto and steak and the complimentary liquor at the end packed quite a punch.
