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.

I think they have two restaurants in Krakow. If you ask the locals, they always point you to the one on Sławkowska so I believe this is the main restaurant. Unfortunately, I never got to dine there but I had lunch at the less known one on Szpitalna. It's warm, friendly and I enjoyed the bistro like setting. You order... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by the staff of Mosquito Hostel and was definitely a good choice! I especially enjoyed the soup Żurek z ziemniakami + kiełbasa (white borsch with potatoes and sasuage), but also the regional dish "bigos myśliwski w chlebie" (traditional cabbage and meat stew, served in bread) was very good. Service was ok, old fashion interiors... More

It is such an amazing restaurant. When you inside it's like entering someone's house in XIX century. Food is really good and only old grannies work there (besides Cook) it is hard to find as you need to go via museum hall and then turn left onto inside square.

we went to the location that was more like a cafeteria style place and resembled a log cabin atmosphere and had a big fish tank in the middle of the room. This was the best meal we had on our week trip. I grew up eating Polish food from my grandparents and the food here put it all to shame.... More

We visited here as part of a 50th Birthday celebration and gad a great time. The restaurant itself is quaint and quirky and the food very traditional. My wild boar was great and the sauce excellent. Service was a bit slow but our party had a great evening.

Our tour driver recommended this restaurant on the last night of our visit and we enjoyed the whole experience. The service was very good, the food was very good, the portion sizes were huge and the prices were excellent. We sat near to the pianist who played very well and helped to create a certain ambiance, the décor was very... More
