We wouldn’t have come into this restaurant if it hadn’t been for a street hawker showing us the set menu. 48 zloty for four courses! All of the food was very tasty and the staff were fine. Would recommend for a cheap eat in krakow,...on the set menu. Cannot comment on the a la carte.More

Found this great restaurant by chance and were encouraged in by a pleasant young man. The food was absolutely delicious and the only reason we didn't return was there was no alcohol served that week and my husband likes a glass of wine with his...meal.More

Walked by here on our way to the square earlier in the day, decided to give it a shot on the way back to our room. Absolutely one of the best decisions our whole trip! The gentleman outside greeted us as we walked by, showed...us the menu, and was able to sit the three of us right away. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating. The drinks were cold, the atmosphere was awesome, and the food was mouthwatering! The beef pierogi and the linguine shrimp and scampi were so amazing! The ice cream with fruit was totally delicious! We would highly recommend this place to anyone who visits Kraków!More

We stopped off for breakfast and met two of the most friendliest waitresses. They explained to us what the Jewish breakfast consisted of, so we both opted for it. Breakfast (eggs baked with tomato, garlic etc) was delicious. We sat under the heater in a...conservatory style makeshift which was super cosy on a very cold morning. We will definitely return on our next visit for dinner.More

We've tried some local food and we've found them very good. Unfortunately the room was very cold and the bill was not so low how i'm expected. Compared to other restaurant try in Krakow this one was the most expensive.

We loved this restaurant so much after our first visit that we ended up going back 2 nights later for our last meal in Krakow/Kazimierz. The service was excellent on both the first visit when quiet and the 2nd time when very busy. Between the...4 of us we tried the cornfed chicken, tenderloin steak, tuna, zander and beef cheek dishes and they were all great. I especially enjoyed the chicken broth with savoury dumpling starters. Our waitress Christina was very welcoming and friendly as were the rest of the staff. Good value too as there were 4 of us eating 2-3 courses each with 2-3 drinks each and the bill was just under £100. If we revisit Kazimierz we will definitely be coming back here.More

We were enticed into the restaurant by a friendly waiter outside. But the sales pitch didn’t disappoint, food was lovely and cooked well. We tried the polish dumplings - totally recommend for first timers in Poland. If you’re looking for cosy polish food in the...Jewish quarter then this restaurant is perfect.More

We ate here twice while in Poland. The food was amazing, the waiter helpful and friendly, and it is really great value for money. The goose liver pate is delicious, the duck breast with the plum sauce cooked to perfection. I would definitely recommend this...restaurant, definitely worth a visit.More

We went to Portofino on our final night of our short break in Kraków. There was a lady outside the restaurant trying to generate custom, we never like this but appreciate why restaurants may need to do it. The menu was explained to us and...we checked out a couple of other menus in other nearby places before making our mind up on Portofino for the evening. The waiting staff were very polite and attentive. We were a little disappointed to find that three dishes were not available, especially as one of these (beef cheek) had caught my husbands eye on the menu originally. I had the chicken which was a simple and pleasant meal. My husband had the pierogi dumplings which he really enjoyed. We both had a dessert, cheesecake - excellent, and ice cream and fresh fruits. We asked what exactly the fresh fruits were before ordering - the waiter said raspberries, blueberries, whatever is from the market today. The ice cream arrived with kiwi... and some blueberries! It would be good if waiting staff knew the finer details. Drinks were very good value indeed. Overall a lovely restaurant which wasn’t too busy and had a warm atmosphere. Thank you.More

Excellent Food however there was a mad family in restaurant who argued constantly about how the bill was going to be split. Please avoid Hard Rock Krakow Monday Night because I believe they are going there next
