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.

I ate here for lunch twice on my most recent visit to Krakow. Tucked away in a street off the southern end of the Stary Rynek, it offers a main item + 6 salads accompaniments for PLN 17 (about £3) - duży zestaw - or for PLN 13 just 4 salad items. I had flan the first time and Gołąbki... More

Read great views about this place on trip advisor and decided to go there on our first night in Kraków as was craving salad after so much fried Christmas market food. And Chimera did not disappoint. 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!!!

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
