About
An encounter with Polish folklore through music brings together the tradition and culture of the country. A performance by a folk band combines exceptional dancing, singing, and regional costume. Such events are held in the cafe Jama Michalika, situated in a 15th-century building at Florianska 45. During performances, guests are offered an opportunity to try the traditional Polish cuisine, which makes the whole experience one of a kind. 3-dis

Booked show online after searching for folk dance show with a meal. Both the show and meal better than expected. Meal great for price and on the night they catered for my vegetarian option. Lovely staff too.

This was an excellent choice to spend the evening with drink, dance and dinner. A very hospitable staff and continuous entertainment with folk dance, occasionally involving us too, made the evening truly enchanting. A must to complete the tourism of Polish land.

I came here with my Husband last week, we had not ate beforehand because food was included so we were really hungry. I was very disappointed with the food, it made me feel nauseous. I did try a tiny bit of everything but every bit of it was disgusting, so I missed out on a decent meal that night. I could have went somewhere else instead and enjoyed my food, but for the price I expected the food to be so much better. I found the show very boring and cringe-worthy. I would certainly not recommend, save your money and go somewhere worthwhile.

Went to Jama Michalika Cafe which was an interesting building in itself.We had meal of chicken soup with pasta,and chicken for mains provided in the price of £11-12. There was a floor show which encouraged audience participation.The small group sang and danced to Polish music provided by two man band with a small interval during the two hour or so evening show.It was an enjoyable Polish evening to finish our trip to Krakow.

I wish there was an option to give no stars at all....
It's a scam like you would not believe. I beg you not to go. I know 150 PLN is not a huge amount of money but I would have far better time hanging out in a pub. Lack of organization and probably worst representation of Polish food that I ever saw. Folk dancing crew looked like bunch of hobos dressed in a harry to do some freestyle.
Not even drink included for something that gas station food beats it hands down is a spit in a face. The organizers counted on guests to get drunk way before the whole clown show starts and they forget this buffoonery all together. To organizers, you should be ashamed of yourselves for presenting tourists such a thing. I could go forever with constructive criticism but it would be waste of time and nothing will change, so just a warning before for some dumb reason you decide to go there.

This was a strange event. We arrived 15 minutes early and around 75-100 people were having drinks in the first of several connected rooms. The room was so hot. We were seated at a tiny table in the middle of another room and far from the entertainers. This room has about 50-60 people in it. Our dinner didn’t arrive until 75 minutes after the starting time. There were noisy people in the audience that overwhelmed the music and dancing. The performers were too far away anyway. We left early. A waste of time and money.

Folk dancing 👍. Service and food terrible..We had to request salt for our cold soup.
Stale bread was provided on request. Main dish was cold consisted of compressed Turkey. A waste of 100+ Euro.
Would not recommend.

We visited here in October and did not really know what to expect after reading the terrible reviews on trip advisor. But what a night! It is still now the highlight of our stay in krakow! The show was brilliant and really entertaining, they had us all join in with them with the traditional dances and we had so much fun doin so! The service however in the resteraunt is dismal! We had one drink throughout the evening which was ordered on our arrival and was served 45 minutes later and we did ask for more drinks later on but they where never served. Apart from the service we could not fault it, the resteraunt has amazing art work also which is great to look at whilst waiting for your drinks!
The folk show was brilliant though and would highly recommend it!

This was a nice evening. We had a good dinner and there was this excellent show. They showed us several Polish dances. The visitors could even join in some dances.
