“Food very good - prices, ambience and service not so impressive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

We went to Pod Baranem at the end of our recent trip as we fancied going somewhere a bit special for a final blowout. The food was very good indeed - we had the saddle of venison with forest sauce and the stuffed duck traditional Polish style - but at these prices it should be. The venison was about £12, which is very expensive indeed for Krakow, and main dishes all come unaccompanied, meaning side dishes are an additional cost. The portions were very small, which may come as a relief since Polish restaurants tend to serve up massive portions, but in this case the amount of food just felt mean. Almost zero ambience, which you really feel in a city with so many candlelit, cosy restaurants and bars. Service was pretty chilly too. All in all you would be better going across the road to Horoscope where you can get excellent Polish food at a fraction of the cost and with genuinely warm service.

“Worth to visit and eat there.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Very good restaurant serving traditional (really) polish dishes and specialties. Long and reach menu. Dishes test like at home!. Reasonable prices. Indoor very cosy, paintings of famous cracovian painter on the walls (little beat strange- but worth to see).
Restaurant located just behind “ Planty”: ring on the feet of Wawel castle. The only problem for coming there by car is lack of parking places but taking tram or walk it is no problem at all.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Have been going for over four years and food gets better abd better! Love their goal koi as starter and duck was lovely and pink. Went twice on last trip and waiter remembered what we ate previously and was able to recommend according to our taste. A little weak on deserts, though but a Great place with cosy interior and some interesting art .

“what a brilliant place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Went to Krakow with 8 friends for our traditional New Year's trip. Found this amazing restaurant having failed to get into one round the corner opposite the castle. What a great find! The food is amazing and the service wonderful. We were so impressed that we booked for the following night as well! Our waiter, whose name was Zibi I think, was attentive, funny and remembered what we wanted to drink! He explained the menu to us as needed and looked after us really well. Everyone enjoyed their meals, the creme brulee is to die for!! They offer excellent value. I think it cost us about £22 per head for a 3 course meal, coffee and lots of drinks! Try it, it's excellent!!

“Tasty Tasty Tasty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Another excellent meal at this fine restaurant. I started with the mushroom soup and believe it is the "smoothest" best flavored Polish Mushroom soup in all of Poland! Then went to the duck breast which was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Keep up the standards and you will have a successful business for years to come. This place does not disappoint! Dziekuje Slicznie!
