A must eat!!

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.

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

Having tried some of the top recommended restaurants we went in search of "Grandma's" for some old style Polish food. Look for it, it is worth the search. If you leave the main square and walk towards the Barbican, there are some large wooden doors on the right. Go through into the Museum and out of the far doors into... More

This restaurant was recommended by our Polish friend who actually likes us. Don't be driven away by the entrance or the scent that comes from the kitchen, good things happen there. You'll have to walk downstairs to get to the shrine. You must try the chicken soup. Or the borsch with meat dumplings. Or both. I did and it was... More

We were recommended this place by tourist information. As others have said, it is not easy to find. There is a small sign ( With a pic of granny! ) on the wall outside what appears to be a university building. Go in, through some doors on the left which take you into a courtyard, then right down some steps.... More

Try not to deviate from the idea to go there only because it is not that simple to find it : when you see the banner just go inside and at the end of the corridor on the left. It is like going to a wine cellar. The room is small but very warm and it smells great. It is... More

Finding this place feels like you're breaking a ton of rules--- there's a tiny sign outside HUGE double doors, which leads to a grand hallway in a university or museum (?) where there's a porter who glares at you as you awkwardly enter. You continue down a hallway, out some double doors, onto a courtyard with a single shack, and... More
