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.

I booked this restaurant based on the excellent reviews I read about it online and on Tripadvisor. Perhaps the good experience only go as far as for individual guests, and I would definitely not recommend it to any group. We were a group of approx 25 people on a Friday evening. We booked the dinner months before and had the... More

I have read many reviews of the Pod Aniołami restaurant and most have raved about the decor downstairs. We were four people dining upstairs on a Saturday night and it was absolutely wonderful. I really was "under the angels" with decor from a rich-man's city apartment from old days. The food was excellent, the service was friendly and knowledgeable, with... More

Our first night in Krakow and we had been recommended this restaurant by a local. They were fully booked but went out of their way to fit us (2) in. We were not disappointed by the food or the ambience or the extremely friendly and helpful service.

We asked hotel for name of outstanding Polish restaurant. This was wonderful choice. We were led down about two flights of stairs to a small room with the perfect table for two. Decor is rustic. It took a while to figure out menu. There are chef's suggestions for about 130 zolaty ir one can choose each course separately. I ordered... More

What a stunning place this is, although we knew it as "Pod Aniolami" so it took me a while to track it down on Trip Advisor. It was recommended by our hotel and I have to say that this was one of the best places we ate in Krakow. The interior is beautiful; very rustic but charming. We had a... More

This was for me the best Polish dinner I ever had. Tasty, served with a charming Polish wine. The "Przysmak (etc.)" or the "Delicacy of the Polish nobility" is a casserole with seven types of meat. Great. Very friendly staff too. OK, there is that typical cellar atmosphere, you know, with empty bottles on the shelves and other dusty stuff.... More

The title of this review is only to warn the restaurant.. Everything is perfect is the truth, interior is so charming, all is like frozen in an ancient spell , and places the visitor in a medieval auberge, service is ok, chairs are not so comfortable. Several rooms, under, as a wonderful cave, above close to the big fireplace where... More
