Chimera has both an excellent sit-down menu as well as an amazing lunch bar. The lunch bar has lots of specials, as well as entrees, fruits, salads, desserts, etc. Would definitely go back.

I advise you to go down to the down part of restaurant. In comparison with upper floor you will feel difference. There is no hassles there.Delicious soup in goulash style, heady desserts and cognitive place.

Two days ago we decided to eat here. The rewtaurant looks good and cozy. But the staff says almost nothing en the giek that served us was unfriendly. I think she does nog speak english. There was also à lot of sand in our mushroom soup.

The queue was a little chaotic, but it sorted itself out, and when it did the choice was worth the wait. Well labelled in both English and Polish the staff were happy to explain what was in any if the choices, and all seemed excellent. Help yourself to baked potatoes from the fire and you'll have a hearty, healthy meal.

You can choose a 'small 'plate for 11 zloty (3euro) which is actually a big portion, and you can choose 4 different types of... More

Mixed restaurant, but with good selection for vegetarians. Worth asking what exactly do salads contain, especially if you are vegan. Pleasant atmosphere, moderate prices, and during evenings romantic guitar playing. Worth a visit.

Was recommended to go here and wow. Super food at great prices. Served like a 5 star hotel by friendly and helpful staff. You can even get the chef to make something not on the menu although it is vast with a huge selection. Underground you are served like silver service.

That's one of my favourite places in Krakow. If you look for something tasty, healthy and quick, you are in the right place. The range of salads is amazing... They always come up with some new ones. Great value for money! Highly recommended!!!
