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!!!

Like a bohemian upmarket cafeteria, ( but in a really nice way ). saw it recommended on trip advisor- We ate in the upstairs courtyard - simple fresh food, lots of choice, an extensive range of salads and all in a really charming courtyard. This place was really busy, so a lively fast turnaround at the counter, but always with... More

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.
