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.

Fantastic

Removed just enough from "On the beaten path" Authentic, local non touristy polish cuisine. A little pricier than some of the neighbours - but you get what you pay for

We did not even get to try the food at all. My wife is gluten intolerant and she asked which item she can had from the menu. After about 10 minutes of making us wait, the waiter comes back and says that the only item - the absolutely one item - that she can have from the menu is beef... More

Dear Sir, I am very sorry for your disappointment and for a long waiting situation. Our guests always inform us about your allergies and highly trained waiters recommend only safe dish. The place is far-famed for its marinated meats, grilled over beech hardwood fire and other old Polish dishes. Spices in marinades contain gluten. So the safest meat, which didn’t... More

Few complaints about the service I would agree with but the food certainly made up for this. I had the wild boar steak which was incredible. Building itself was stunning however only 1 customer toilet for 3 floors Would certainly go back for that wild boar !

I was in Krakow on a business trip and one of my associates had made the reservation for us on a Saturday evening.

I am glad that the food was tasty and you enjoyed our thirteenth century interiors. I wish to add that in the other, adjacent cellar Cracow goldsmiths used to have (for 300 years!) their workshop and the city melting point of gold and silver. They were forging thalers (old coins) on cups, brooches and ornaments for knights. To this day... More

Thank you for your kind words. We also invite you to our Gothic cellars where the old original utensils and equipment from the fourteenth century allow you to experience the atmosphere of the medieval Krakow. We also recommend to visit the Chamber of Burgrave Augustine Howel on the first floor with beautiful eighteenth century wall paintings and, of course, a... More

We stopped here on a Sunday afternoon for lunch, and as the weather was glorious we decided to sit outside (there were four or five tables on the pavement outside the restaurant). One table was free so we sat down and waited to be served. At least five minutes passed before we saw a waiter; a young guy who came... More

I'm so sorry, I never would have expected such a long waiting situation. Even a full restaurant does not justify us and discharge from the usual duties. Our mistake was the fact that there were two waiters (students) who were to attend the least loaded tables. The paradox - if there was only one waiter who would have relied only... More

Regarding the facility itself; the atmosphere is charmingly romantic. The food however was average, even though this was the most expensive restaurant we visited in Central Europe. Our party of four chose the mountain trout, veal, bigos, and pierogi. Trout was charged by weight, and was delivered complete with eyeballs. It was nicely cooked - no complaints. The veal was...

I am very sorry for your disappointment! I would like to explain certain things, though: a) The trout is brought to the restaurant directly from a mountain stream. Our policy is to follow the old recipe of the royal Cracow times when the fish was served directly from the fire, without any bones, filleted. As far as the fish eyes... More

Beautiful location - the restaurant is in an old wine celler and is just lovely. We decided to have the tasting menu but they were happy to change any courses that some of us didn't like. The food was great, the service was excellent. Can't criticise anything at all.

We eat in this restaurant on Tuesday 26th May and the food could not be beaten. Our waiter, Marcin, was fabulous. He was patient and when we asked about the food, took his time to explain the ingredients. Top restaurant.
