This restaurant seems the best in Krakow old town,the service and food were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble as we had a vegetarian with us and they catered for her needs.

We visited La Fontaine after finding Cyrano de Bergerac fully booked and sat outside. The food was very, very good, but the waiting staff (though incredibly good looking!) were somewhat unattentive, and whether the worst was in training and perhaps didn't really know what she was doing or not, and sometimes verging on rude. We were told when paying the... More

We found this place by chance just off the main square and down some steps. It is a lovely cosy pretty restaurant with friendly and helpful staff. The food was absolutely amazing ! We were spoiled for choice and the chef sent us out little extras to try between courses. It is one of the best meals I have ever... More

Krakow main square is full of restaurants so its hard to choose. We picked this one on impulse (its just off the square) and it was absolutely lovely. Food was great, service was great, staff were great. Was really happy with the evening, not very loud, which is nice as everywhere on the square is very busy.

Had dinner here one evening and had high expectations as the place had some good reviews. We were seated in the rear courtyard as it was a warm night and ordered a main course only as we already had a fairly substantial lunch that day which was just as well since the portions were not generous. We both opted for... More

Nothing to dislike here. The menu, the presentation, the food quality, the service, the surroundings particularly the décor in the cellar area, and not least the value for money. You will not be disappointed. The location almost on the main market square is also perfect.

We ordered Caesar salads, fish and meat. Everything was average...In salads there were poached eggs, meat was served with an awful sauce. Quite unfriendly service and gloomy atmosphere.
