Better not make any cost/value comparisons...The food was ok, but that is it.nothing special and worse than in other restaurants we visited in Krakow. And prices are very high.the service average.

We had the set meal of 5 courses that is limited to 15 sittings per day. the courses were Goat cheese layered with smoked apples served on baked beetroot with currant sauce. I... More

This is one of the oldest restaurant in Krakow. All the rooms are so beautifull, with paintings, old lamps, wood. All the tables are well but with a table near the window you have a view on the rynek. All is good, and with real polish meals. The service is not include in the price.

Firstly I must commend this place for being by far the nicest restaraunt I've ever eaten but must temper that with saying the £100 per couple price tag is obviously for the decor and the staff because we ate meals much nicer around the square for a fraction of the cost. Style of substance is how best to describe this... More

Quite pricey for Poland but delicious food accompanied by great Penfolds wine! Very traditional old Polish, medieval decor. However, I would appreciate if the waiters and the receptionist on the door downstairs spoke a bit better English as it seemed quite casual and not very professional. I am sure most of their guests are tourists.

Upstairs into one of many very special dining rooms with lovely ceilings. Had the traditional Polish menu with 5 courses. All delicious and immaculate service- they didn't rush us but we're very helpful. The cream of chicken soup was particular delicious. If you have this menu don't eat too much bread with the early courses! Lovely meal and very good... More

I went to this restaurant last year in the summer just before my flight back to the Netherlands. I was hungry so I decided to order dumplings with meat (pierogi) and my mother ordered a steak with potatoes and a salad. It was quiet busy in the restaurant but I didn't expect I would have to wait for 45 mins... More
