How a grandma's cuisine tastes like - more or less

A cheap place to dine in, if you're low on your budget this is one of the best bets in town I've visited. Pierogi were decent (though far from perfect) and very cheap (around 10zł for a full plate). Place is in a windowless basement, and to get there you need to through another building and exit... read more

A cheap place to dine in, if you're low on your budget this is one of the best bets in town I've visited. Pierogi were decent (though far from perfect) and very cheap (around 10zł for a full plate). Place is in a windowless basement, and to get there you need to through another building and exit through a courtyard.

Just getting to the branch at 17 Ulica Slawkowska builds the anticipation nicely: a rather homely sign above a rather splendid and enormous door confirms you are in the right place. Once through the door, follow the corridor straight on, past the bronze busts, and turn left at the end into a small courtyard. There you will find another sign... More

If you are looking for traditional Polish food reasonably priced and you are happy with casual atmosphere this rustic restaurant would be perfect for you. It is not exactly the most romantic venue, but the food is really tasty and truly Polish. The portions are really generous. The selection of drinks is not impressing but I think there is something...

We rushed in there in a rainy day, four people, with 15 euros sum. The main floor was cramped and we headed for the basement. It is a surprise! We got 2 starters (beacause we had no money), the mushroom soup was DE-LI-CI-OUS, we got only two beers, four main dishes, and two desserts, with 15 euros. All of the... More

Visited U Babci for lunch during our visit to Krakow after it had been recommended by a friend who visited a few years prior. Decor is unique and tables are like picnic benches. Service is nearly non-existent as you order at the counter, pick up your own food at the counter and then return your places. However, do not let... More

The food was good, homey, but a bit greasy. Huge portions! The place is hard to find as you have to go inside a courtyard and then follow the signs that are not even lit up:). That's part of the fun though, our kids liked finding this "underground" family friends place. Great value for the money.

My food was a bit dry but they had big portions. Prices were cheap though and they had traditional Polish food. Maybe I just ordered the wrong dish. They had a variety of food to choose from and they had beer. This restaurant was quite hard to find since you had to go through a big door then through the... More
