Excellent and right on the Square.

We had lunch here, it's a fabulously ornate old fashioned restaurant with all the extras. Bread, butter, oil, fleur de sel from the Camargue and raw vegetable sticks are all part of the deal included in the cost. I spent more on my glass of champagne than on my beautiful salad lunch.

I am a vegetarian traveller and often find it difficult to find food in European countries. Szara proved me wrong with their delicious cauliflower crème soup with almonds (I went there again for the soup). Even the couscous with vegetables was nice, warm and very well done with the dip. As for the ambiance, you will feel like you have... More

Great food and good service. I will highly reccomend this restaurant! The prices are a bit higher than other restaurants in the area but it is so worth the money.

We came here with a group of 8 and had a lovely meal. The restaurant is located right on the main square of Old Town and has a warm interior, with lots of dark wood and period masonry. We tried a variety of things but the stand-outs were the goat cheese and honey with beets, the veal tenderloin and the... More

We had booked in advance, was seated in a quiet room behind the main room, and it was perfect for us. The room was half full, and the waitress was very attentive and friendly. We ordered snails and carpacchio for starters and they were both excellent. For mains we had duck breast and goose leg and they were also great.... More

We were in the area, and just dropped in. Funny: when I asked if they had room for four grown up, the waiter looked into the room, wondering if he could find us a table, and sad yes. There were no other visitors... :D They came along, this was a Friday, and it should have been full, but at the... More

Visited here late evening for dinner. The waiter was friendly and very accommodating. The food was very good, everything was carefully prepared and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere was great and you eat in wonderful surroundings with impressive ceilings. The restaurant is more expensive than most in Krakow but it is on the Main Square so that... 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!

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 honest, so I wouldn't go for more then... More
