In the Old Town,on the main square and therefore easy to find,this was our favourite restaurant in Krakow.Whilst true the food isn't perhaps "typically" Polish in that dumplings and stews don't dominate,it offers brilliantly cooked food,great service and a lovely atmosphere-buzzing without being loud and oppressive.Prices are a bit higher than many eateries but if you want to impress and...

My wife, myself and two friends had spent a particularly sad day visiting Auschwitch and Birkenau and when we returned to Kraków we all needed cheering up. We chose to eat here purely by chance and what a fantastic night we had. We were firstly shown a table just inside the main door but this was a bit draughty and... More

Despite visiting the night before and enjoying polite and effortless customer service. Breakfast was sadly appalling. The gentleman serving behind the bar was grumpy and overly unhelpful despite our attempts to secure a smile and a please or thank you. Maybe it was just the morning staff! But I would not venture here for breakfast ever.

We decided to eat at the best restaurants we could in Krakow as they were cheap by British standards. Although all the restaurants we researched and ate at were excellent, this one tipped the balance for the best. I had mushroom soup to start which was amazing. The service was superb and the surroundings where fab...a must if you are... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with vaulted ceilings. The food is excellent albeit the duck sauce was very sweet. This is typical of Polish meat sauces, they tend to be much sweeter than those in the uk. The food is very reasonably priced for the quality. The wine however is expensive, about £25 a bottle. Wine can be found much... More

The food we had was of excellent quality and everyone was very friendly and polite, also happy to give 5 individual bills. The quality was what you would expect of a French restaurant and also very filling as we could all only manage a main course. Not cheap but not outrageous (is anything in Krakow) and all beautifully prepared.
