“Little gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Thought we would try here after reading such fab reviews and was not disapointed. Didn't have starters but had beef loin which was a fillet steak with pepper sauce and husband had chicken breast stuffed with nuts n prunes . Both were delicious and very well presented. I had cheesecake for dessert and wow what a portion it was yummy. All this and 4 vodkas and a beer and gin n tonic 154 zloty, so good we are going again tonight to celebrate my birthday. Well worth a visit a wonderful place with great atmosphere and wonderful food.

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This was a great place to eat. We had beet soup which was delicious and the waiter gave us the recipe too. We ate there twice, steak was fantastic as was the salad and pork. Didn't have room for a dessert the second time but the meringue and nougat looked delicious. We bought a flavoured vodka (a speciality), a ginger and an apricot. We had a 10% off voucher from Escape2Poland which they honoured and we were also given a complementary hazelnut vodka too. The second time we had the raspberry and cherry...delicious. A wine, beer,3 courses, coffee and vodka for two people...10% off = 153 zloty roughly 5 to £ so fraction of what it would be at home. Highly recommend...book at busy times. Trip advisor reviewers got it right!

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

What a great meal! Found the restaurant on Trip Advisor and made a last minute reservation. We certainly weren't disappointed. Great ambience, fab staff, good menu, excellent prices and wonderful food. I am not a vodka drinker but I enjoyed sampling a couple of their home made vodkas after dinner. All in all a great last night out I Krakow.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

With a flat in Krakow, a Polish wife and having eaten in most restaurants in the area we know a good Polish restaurant when we find one. Lets start with the service, the waitress was very friendly helpful (and even knew that they had just dropped from First to third on trip advisors rankings!) during the meal she turned our individual light on and checked if all was well as we were eating. We did not have starters as we decided we would have desserts instead. I had the beef loin which turned out to be a good fillet steak whilst my wife had the pork loin which was stuffed with prunes and came with a hot cranberry sauce - this dish was excellent. My wife said that if this was served in Wierzynek restaurant she would not be surprised we both agreed was one of the best Polish traditional meals we had eaten for a while. We had desserts which were good but declined the complimentary vodkas only as I was driving later. We had mulled wine which was also good. All in all with 2 main courses, 2 desserts, 2 mulled wines and 3 coke zeros the meal came to £33.50 which was excellent value. We will be back to this restaurant which is found outside the main square in the Jewish area.

“Fab-u-lous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Have just come back from a stunning meal at this restaurant and felt that i had-to write my first ever trip advisor review. Stunning food, excellent service, the flavoured vodka's an absolute must to try. 3 course meal, 3 rounds of drinks, 2 flavoured vodkas all for 2 people, all under £50. Topped off with hazelnut shot that was fabulous!! A must to go to in krakow!
