“Fond memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Having been brought up on Polish food courtesy of my father who was Polish it brought a lot of childhood memories flooding back. This is the best restaurant in all of Krakow and I shall certainly be returning when all my family come back to Krakow for another visit in 2013.

“Second visit in three days”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

A great little find through tripadvisor. Fantastic menu which is real value for money. Try the beef loin with black pepper sauce or the duck in plum brandy sauce. The house red wine is very drinkable. Particularly enjoyed the cherry tart.

“Delicious taste of Poland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

We went to this restaurant the first night we were in Krakow. It was a great place to go to get a taste of the authentic food. We had a three course meal. The first course was a soup which had eggs and sausage in it. I know it sounds gross but it was really good, especially with the bread and butter they had on the table. There were two types of bread and both were excellent. The second course was the main one which consisted of several different types of Polish food. I don't know what they were all called but one was perogies, a spinach and meat type. See the pictures below to better examine the food. Although I do not know what all of it was called it all tasted delicious! The final course was dessert. The dessert was cranberries on a graham cracker crust with something like sweetened condensed milk drizzled over it. It was amazing. There was also some kind of juice on the table in pitchers, the waitress said it was apple juice but it tasted more like carrots. It was an experience though. The food here was something I would recommend people try to see what authentic Polish food is like. This wonderful dinner all took place in a more formal stone room with dim lighting. It would be a perfect romantic setting or in our case the perfect place for friends to have dinner and converse.
