I remember it in the 90s - a small salad bar in the basement very popular among university students and lecturers. It has since expanded both underground and into the courtyard. I look forward to eating there each time I am in Kraków and never leave disappointed. They always come up with new salads and the combinations are always interesting... More

The restaurant is under a very busy self service style veg café which was popular but we were the only ones in the restaurant for about 30mins. The restaurant is dark and has a heavy atmosphere. Fine art but rather a stuffy library type atmosphere. Service was very good as was all the food. I partic enjoyed the herring starter.... More

We came here for lunch, just walk down the stairs. The decor is very inviting. You will also be amazed by the art work, especially the big mural. The food is very good and fresh. The service was ok, a little slow but we weren't in a rush, so no problem. Really worth a visit!

This is our first stop for lunch when we arrive in Krakov every year. It is quirky and the food is really good and so cheap. It is like no other restaurant in Krakov. Why it is so good and worth a visit.

A good place to get some food in the center of Karkow and to do it fast. Looks nice, food is healthy (various salads). Very tasty sweets though (sold separately also for take-away). I did not go to their restaurant, dishes looked interesting, but it was over my budget.

The restaurant in the basement is nice and cosy and the waitress was kind. Good background music not too high. Food on average. It was better few years ago when I was there with my wife for the first time. Prices on average being Krakow downtown.

I've been brought here twice now. The first time I just had a coffee and a strawberry smoothy. Both were great but it didn't stick out so much as to draw me back. The second time I ended up going because my girlfriend wanted to go. I'm glad I ended up going the second time and trying some of their... More
