The owner of the restaurant called me creep when there was an issue. This is totally unacceptable. In covid times I was leaving there 100 usd per week for food but there will be no more. the owner obviously is making too much money in...covid and forgot his place that they are to serve to customer not to insult them. So I advise others to choose one of hundreds other restaurants in Cracow to spend money because there You never know what will be with serviceMore

The vegetarian selection was surprisingly sufficient, the service was very friendly and the atmosphere very non pretentious for such a nice place. The food was of course amazing too.

We got a "chamber separée" with a beautiful wall, painted in an old fashion style. I had foie gras - gorgeous - venison with hunters sauce - melted in the mouth but why dill in the sauce??? - and a lovely egg nog cake. My...husband had the lamb and the all four of us had different desserts, all to be recommended. Loved the wine! Good service, nice staff and it did feel corona-safe.More

We came across this restaurant while trekking through Kraków one evening and decided to give it a go lured in by the promise of good venison. The interior is quirky but homely and the general vibe of fine dining made our visit a unique experience....Barszcz czerwony (beetroot soup), pierogi and venison were exceptional. The Chef's gingerbread cake melts in your mouth. The highlight of our visit was the excellent service done by Michal who welcomed us into the place and prepped the appetisers and salads. Professional and very friendly, he gave us a few insights into Kraków and recommended some places to visit, while sharing some interesting stories (ask him about the waiters' shoes!). We have also been offered some of the delicious home-made tinctures. We will definitely visit again when we're in Kraków next time and based on this experience I don't think I could recommend this place more.More

Wow Wow Wow We ate at this restaurant last night which was recommended by a Radom local polish guy we met on the street. After reading a few reviews we decided to give it a shot on our last night and this place did not...disappoint. The decor in this restaurant is quite charming, unique and very interesting. The artwork displayed gave the whole place a lot of character and lots of detail for your eyes to wander around. Although the furniture was rustic this restaurant is cosy and inviting. As if you are sitting in a room in your home. We ordered the sour soup and cabbage rolls to start which were delightful. Very well balanced dishes in flavour and seasoning. The soup was not that sour as I would have imagined but still very good and a flavour I couldn’t place. The cabbage rolls were quite big I recommend sharing this it was accompanied with a mushroom sauce that was to die for! My only complaint would be that there was not enough of it!! For main we ordered sirloin steak with cognac pepper sauce cooked in babakan style and the wild boar in hunter sauce decisions were made upon the advice of the waiter, so that we experienced three different sauces. As we had tried the mushroom sauce to start. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. Our waiter was very helpful, friendly, informative and attentive but not in an annoying way. He could answer any questions we had about the food and his recommendations were spot on! So the hunter sauce I was eagerly awaiting blew away my expectations it was so unique!! Unlike anything I had ever tasted before. The only way I can describe the taste would be to the fruit tamarind and a hint of star anise but I think it was made with rosemary and pink peppercorns either way it was so delicious and the wild boar was cooked to perfection succulent - melt in your mouth feeling. The portion sizes were adequate too I wasn’t left feeling overly full or lethargic. We ordered four sides creamed spinach which was ok, a little bitter and needed more cream. Then roast potatoes, mashed potatoes and chips !! I’d leave out the chips next time - they were fine nothing special but the roast potatoes were my favourite. We could have skipped desert but all of the food so far was so GOOD we decided to try desserts. Once again, we asked the waiter for recommendations and he suggested the ginger cake and cake ‘Kristina’. But on arrival we were given cake ‘wiernjka’ instead of the ginger cake soaked in Advokat. The waiter recognised that we had been given the wrong cake and sent over the ginger cake. So in all we tried three cakes!!! My favourite was cake Kristina it was delicious all three cakes were well balanced in taste and the level of sweetness. The sponge in all cakes were perfect level of consistency. To top wonderful meal we were given a kirsch type of sweet liquor/digestive from the kitchen as a thank you for choosing to dine there. That too was delicious not too sweet or sickly.I’m a huge fan of digestifs and this was certainly up there. This was the best meal we had in Krakow. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit again!More
