We were shown the restaurant from a gentleman off the street. It was in a hallway and down some stairs. Sabina was our waitress, she was amazing and so friendly! She recommend local dishes and drinks as we were wanting to try traditional dishes. The food came out promptly with bread as a starter beforehand. After requesting our bill, Sabina... More

We booked this restaurant before we left home for our first evening. It is located in the market square and easy to find. Our table was in the basement area of the restaurant. We all loved it, it is full of character: there is a nice atmosphere too. As it's fairly busy, I am glad we booked. There is a... More

The restaurant is well located, near to the square. The atmosphere is perfect, the decoration as well. I have to wait a little while for the waitress to take my order. The food is delicious!! And the portions are very big. If you are hungry go there and also the prices are very good.

Lovely inexpensive food, super friendly staff. Highly recommended! We ate in the lovely basement. If the outdoor seating is full, this is a great place to go. And the prices are lower indoors.

I booked this restaurant for our first night in Krakow as we were staying in the Main Square and didn't want to travel too far after travelling. This was one of the few restaurants on the Square that seemed to be recommended. However, I was still expecting an 'average' meal due to it's location. There were four of us. My... More

This restaurant is located in the main market square, overlooking The Cloth Hall. There is outside seating, but we went inside to eat. It is almost cellar like, but do not be put off. The smell as we started to walk downstairs was amazing. Our meals came quickly, the waiter spoke excellent English, and was extremely helpful. The food was... More

My wife and I were in Kracow for a short break and visited this restaurant twice as it was very good. We ate inside which was very nice and cozy. On the first visit we both opted for the Chicken Shashlik ( basically a Chicken Kebab ) which was enormous. Great big chunks of Chicken with Peppers and Mushrooms with... More

This restaurant is on the main market square so we were able to sit outside and people-watch. We had a couple of the local beers to start which were delicious and very reasonably priced. We ordered the pork knuckle and the duck breast but had to wait over an hour to be served which was difficult on our first night... More
