Hidden gem, inexpensive, fun. Pierogi and roasted meats

Must walk through a university hall, left into a courtyard, find an old door, open it, find an old man who directs you to another old door on the left. Open it and you are in Grandma's crowded homey kitchen. Get in line and place your order. One order of pierogis is about 12 pierogis. With two... read more

Once you find it, you stand to order. You sit at picnic style tables. Similar choices as a milk bar but wine. Fifty three zloty for two of the pricier mains, two shredded salads and one glass of wine. About sixteen bucks

We were "welcomed" by the most unwelcoming lady that took our orders. The food we had was delicious (Pierogi and kielbasa)..the prices ridiculous, 5€ each! Try the real Polish experience ;)

We were recommended this traditional Polish restaurant and first appearances were good. The interior is nice and it's very authentic. However, my friends and I waiting over an hour for our food (food as simple as a salad) and when it finally came it arrived at different times so we were all practically eating alone. Don't bother coming here, there... More

Quite good place to late night food or breakfast. Good service, tasty food, and not expensive prices. Situated not far from railway and bus station, so if you are hungry and just arrived - nice place to visit.

Almost impossible to find, but really worth the effort, this is a hidden gem in Old Town Krakow. Food is unbelievably cheap, but good quality, and you really feel like you're getting a taste of real Poland (I always think it's a good thing when you're surrounded by Polish people eating!) Be aware, the number system they operate means that... More

A fantastic restaurant with a difference!. Order your food from the small bar, once ready a chime will sound and you can collect your order and sit down in the excellent surroundings, the food was fabulous and was so cheap it felt as though you had taken advantage. I will definitely visit this place again and would highly recommend.

Traditional food served with no table service. Interiors are super funny as it looks like a granny's home (and - spoiler!- actually there is a real granny at the entrance!). Very cheap. A bit difficult to find (it's inside a palace, so you must enter a door and find your way to the restaurant). If you go to Cracow, you... More

My wife and I were intrigued by the lovely outside décor of this restaurant, but the name actually put us off the first time we saw it. However, the next day someone asked our Auschwitz tour guide (a local of Krakow) where he would recommend eating, and he suggested Grandma Raspberry. My wife and I were directed downstairs which has... More
