We came across this place by accident whilst on a short break to Kraków and so glad we did. Lovely atmosphere and wonderful food at great prices. Would highly recommend.

Found this restaurant purely by chance while out strolling. It is on the square up towards the cathedral, walk through a short arcade down the stairs into the cellar. Friendly staff serving traditional Polish fare. We went here twice and on the first visit had the pork schnitzel and on the second visit the beef shish kebab, both meals were... More

Initially we sat on the ground floor level, but when my wife asked the waitress for some more variation on the menu, she directed us downstairs.

The basement is a peaceful spot, away from the hectic market. I didn't get though why they had modern art depicting fruit. It spoiled the otherwise medieval feeling of the basement. The walls don't need decoration... More

We came across this restaurant by accident after getting lost in Krakow. It was after 10pm but we were given a warm welcome. We dined in the charming old cellar and had pork knuckle - too much fat, not much meat - and pierogi filled with shredded meat, my first taste of Polish food and they were good. My partner... More
