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.

We enjoyed a lovely 2-course early evening dinner here and can highly recommend the food; although one of the more expensive restaurants in the Castle area, it is still reasonable by London prices!

This restaurant is a real hidden gem. We found it by accident and went back twice as the food was so good. The staff are very helpful and will recommend food and drinks. We had wild boar which was lovely. This restaurant deserve a much higher rating as it serves very tasty food at a great price

This restaurant is located just off the main square down one of the side streets. We were lucky to get a table as we went earlier on in the day as this place gets pretty busy in the evenings, and it isn't hard to see why. The decor inside is beautiful, very authentic 13th century and the staff are very... More

This was recommended to us by a family member, and it is necessary to book ahead. It's easy to find on one of the main roads leading to the square, and our table was ready upon arrival. The menu is essentially Polish as you would expect, but with a few Western European twists. Whereas the main ingredient of the dish... More

Excellent restaurant, which we booked online whilst staying in Krakow. You enter the restaurant through a small door in a road off the main square, which is very deceiving as it opens up into what could be described as a beautiful hobbits shire!! What a stunning old building serving traditional Polish food and Zywiec beer on draft. We ate downstairs... More

Really great place just off the main square for Polish food. The portions are a very good size and there are lots of things to try. The set menu has 3 starters, choice of mains and a desert! The food was excellent and the service was very good and all good value as well.
