It's not every week you visit Ancora. Ok so it was a special occasion and the boat was pushed. Out. We decided on the 5 and 7 course tasting menu with chosen wines - this doesn't come cheap but the gastronomic taste explosion that awaited us was worth every single grosze. Standouts were the foie gras with marmalade and nectarine... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a lovely meal in Ancora, in fact, it was in another league to the other restaurant that I ate in whilst in Krakow. The staff were very polite, friendly and made us feel welcome (which I found was unusual in Krakow). The setting was lovely, and although the restaurant was filled with other diners, the... More

This was our first visit to Krakow and after reading reviews on TripAdvisor we went to celebrate my wife's birthday. Quiet evening in the restaurant but this gave us a feeling of privacy. Attentive and helpful staff and not hurried. Food was delicious and well presented coming from a menu with a good choice and portions of the right size... More

My wife is Polish and we have a house in Krakow, so over many years we have tried a lot of the restaurants Krakow has to offer. This week we celebrated our wedding anniversary at Ancora. The decor is modern, clean and cool. Staff are attentive and friendly and dealt with all our requests quietly and effectively. The menu is... More

Visited as a party of 5 recently. Main dining area was full so we were taken do downstairs dining area. There was strong smell of damp. Two other diners were already seated. We were served drinks reasonably quickly but our starters took almost one hour. Our main meals took a further hour and it was almost 10pm before they arrived.... More

On our 26 day romp through several Eastern European cities, eating at least 2 or 3 meals a day, dinner at Ancora was by far the most delectable meal that we had. The choices of dishes, the presentation of the meal, and the professionally friendly staff all combined to make Ancora a must-visit restaurant while in Krakow. It was 5... More

I have been many times to Ancora for dinner and in my opinion, this is one of the best restaurants in Krakow, if not the best. The menu has a lot of choices from à la carte, tasting menu's and seasonal menus. They focus on local, fresh products whenever they can. For the level of the quality of food, the... More

Went with my partner for lunch before heading off for a flight. Had read about this restaurant being very good and was recommended to go here. It is on the outskirts of the old town. Bizarrely this place always seems to look closed with no board out the front and no open door but, evidently it was... We had a... More

Situated only a few minutes walk from the main square, Ancora is an excellent choice for fine dining. Attentive but not intrusive service, and an excellent choice of food and wines. My choice of food lived up to the description, and every mouthful was superb! I do not normally have a desert, but the menu looked so appetising that I... More

Nice restaurant in two floors with walking distance from market sg. Fine dining but this time pressure in kitchen was maybe too much. Place was pretty full this evening - might have some influence. Maturity was not proper in main course and cucumber/vodka side dish didn´t work out. But facilities and staff were OK.
