“Wonderful views, good service, artful presentation, average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Go for the view! One of the best places to eat in Krakow from that perspective. The service here is quite good if sometimes slow, and the food is presented attractively. The food itself however is nothing special. You won't be disappointed, and you won't be wowed. Pick what you know you like, nothing will surprise you here.

“Worth for the sake of views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Perfect place for sunny Sunday afternoon. Breathtaking views for Wisla river and distant mountains. Excellent chillout to sit on the terrace and enjoy the sun. When it comes to food - rather mediocre and bit too expensive. Some portions are generous though, which is good. Service was all right too.

“Scenic view, to enjoy anytime with a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

As it were the only place open late enough in the immediate surroundings, I ended up quite a few times either hanging out enjoying the spectacular scenic view from one of the terraces, or for dinner. The menu is surprisingly diverse and rich, well presented with some original arrangements sometimes as e.g. the goulash. It tends however to be all a bit on the greasy side, and the vegetables could deserve a bit more attention. A decent amount of beers, local and international, but disappointingly the only draught beer is an Urquell. Service was good, fast, efficient and very friendly. It's perhaps a bit expensive for local standards, but coming from the euro-zone it was still much much less than what I'd pay for it out here!

“Beautyfull place but not food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Amazing view for Vistula river. I can imagine how beatyfull is there, sitting at terrace on summer evenning. Unfortunatelly food is not in line with enviroment. I was eating grilled salomon which tasted rather like fried. Chicken bulion also not as should be in Poland...
Prices rather high as for quality of food. I recommend for lazy sunny sunday afternoon cofee, but dinner will be better to eat somewhere else.
