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

We had dinner in this restaurant twice during our city trip to Krakow. The food was very good and inexpensive. Waiters were friendly and attentive. Definitely the best restaurant we visited in Krakow.

We read about this in Rick Steves' book. It is just off the central square. It is frequented by students, locals and tourists. The food was authentic and tasty. Eat in the courtyard. We went twice.

We arrived at Chimera thanks to all the recommendations on trip advisor. Must say it was the best food in Krakow at a great price. The first floor is sort of a buffet and downstairs is the restaurant to order on the menu. Definitely go downstairs!!!!!!!! The service was great and patient with our time and questions about the food.... More
