Had dinner with my mum and dad and we were very happy! Great location, good menu, fantastic service (at least from the one waiter we had all night), good food and good value for our money.

I was in Krakow to celebrate my birthday with my husband just last week and we chose this place as it had a Michelin recommendation in the window,lots of diners inside and looked lively and friendly. I have to say the food we had was fine,however the whole experience was spoiled by the rude and arrogant behavior of the young... More

When in krakow this is always on my list of places to come. The staff are always friendly. The hot chocolate is a must. Also the brandy is great to warm you up just before you step back in to the cold. The food always looks amazing and I've promised myself one day I'm having everything in the menu.

Delightfully old fashioned type of restaurant which served as welcome retreat from the busy main square. (We also visited the sister restaurant which had a similar ambience). The atmosphere made it and the food was ok. We also went to the adjoining bar for brandy and coffee (it was -6 degrees outside) and the busy bar had a great atmosphere.

Although located at the main square, sorrounded by many restaurants targeted for tourists - this place offer very solid cousine. If you are not on a budget and if you are looking to have safe, healthy and tasty dinner - this is the place

Good food and service in a beautiful setting. We asked for extras on meals and also asked for food to be cooked the way we liked. Nothing was too much trouble. Went there three times.

visited the city to celebrate new year 2016 and stumbled upon the restaurant in the main square. Enjoyed a hot chocolate with cherry vodka in the bar not realising that the restaurant was annexed to it. Food was superb and the service was equally as impressive. Our party had steaks, duck and corn fed chicken which were all amazing so... More

Whenever we are in Kraków during winter, mulled wine known as Grzaniec in Szara Bar is a must. This is the best mulled wine I had in the Old Town. Glass is full with dry fruits which taste great soaked in wine.
