Great food, weird decor.

Being previously to Szara in Kazimierz ( few years ago) my food expectations were high and Szara in Rynek Glowny stood up to this challenge perfectly well! Food was delightful, I had grilled duck with fresh figs and my girlfriend had trout which I tried and both mains were fabulous! Portions are... read more

You need to visit this place for breakfast! Even if your hotel has breakfast. Trust me. The food is incredible, and to think it costs between £4-5 for a massive serving as well as tea/coffee and fruit juice still astounds me!!

I spent three nights in Krakow and my best dinner by far was at Szara. Friendly staff, perfectly cooked food and the atmosphere is wonderful! Great wine list and good value for the money. Don't miss out on the "raraka" and the "planksteak" - really loved it!

We went here for breakfast and the restaurant itself is nice. We hadn't been here before so we didn't know if you should wait to be seated or just go sit down. None of the people working there even looked at us or told us to pick a table, so we just sat down and looked at the menu. We... More

I checked the city tour recommendations which had this bar/cafe down as good. Myself and my other half ordered breakfast. The bar staff man was very unfriendly/welcoming. The food itself was poor. I ordered toast, cheese and eggs. What was produced was what I would describe as dog food. The taste was revolting and the presentation was horrible. I would... More

I have been twice in this restaurant, and I liked both. It is mostly French cuisine, although they also have couple of more traditional dishes. It is elegant and upscale, but without being too stiff. It is a bit pricey for being Poland, but worth.

Very good food with an acquired taste. Massive portions and very well presented. Definitely a couples restaurant with a varied menu of traditional and Italian cuisine

Had a meal gere one evening of our stay in Krakow. Nice setting and friendly staff. There is a seperate daytime and evening menu. The prices in this restaurant are higher than average we found during our stay but compared to UK prices it was still reasonable

I really enjoyed eating at this restaurant. The inside was lovely and elegant, with a formal but not uptight atmosphere. As for the food, it was delicious and very pleasing to the eyes. I had the veal tenderloin in a Dijon sauce, served with crisp fried onions & potato and parmesan cheese balls. The meat was cooked perfectly. As for... More

I visited the restaurant with my wife just to try their famous fish soup and I have to admit it was very good. There is 3 kind of fish in it: salmon, sole and pike-perch, lots of onion and herbs, and tomato. However the sauces served with the soup are not that good. If the yellow one was supposed to... More
