This restaurant has the most amazing décor - it's like eating in a stately home (including a chaise longue, full-length gilded mirror, piano... even the TV has an old-fashioned picture frame around it). Masses of food for an incredibly low price - the żurek (rye soup with kiełbasa served in a bread bowl) and Hungarian-style placki (potato pancakes with goulash)... More

We had visited their other restaurant on a previous trip and decided to give the one at 38 Ulica Szpitalna a try. WHAT a brilliant decision! Upstairs is the self service restaurant but descend into the basement area and it's like walking into a historical film set. We settled for the Hungarian style potato pancakes which were wonderful, extremely filling... More

This lovely restaurant was recommended by one of the receptionists at our hotel. When we arrived we were a bit dubious as all we could see through the door was a small lobby area, not a restaurant. It turned out that there was a self-service are upstairs and the main restaurant in the caller (a common thing in Krakow). We... More

This restaurant is a five minute walk away from the main square, it was recommended by a Polish bar tender. When you go downstairs to the restaurant you find really quirky décor which adds to the atmosphere. The waitresses speak good English and the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. This was the best restaurant I visited in Krakow,... More

I ate at the restaurant on Ul. Szpitalna, though I also visited the other on Ul. Sławkowska: both are warm, traditional restaurants serving delicious and filling Polish food. The staff are friendly and speak good English, and the period decoration creates an atmosphere which is not to be missed. I particularly enjoyed the goulash stew (served in a stale loaf... More

While visiting Krakow with a Polish friend, he suggested this place on a Sunday night. The location is within walking distance from the main square and I highly recommend making the walk! The food is really delicious. A plate of Pierogi and a large glass of beer cost me 5€ max. The interior is really quirky and adds to the... More

Delicious meals for a great price. Delicious żurek in a bread bowl and other traditional Polish meals, mostly from małopolska region. The restaurant has also amazing decor in the historical style.
