First to what was good. Matje and Tatiana (excuse the spelling) really looked after us. Lots of help with the wine list and some great and interesting choices and they were really passionate about what they did. The restaurant was a cool venue and Karolina...was super helpful with me changing the reservation. What was disappointing was the food. It lacked balance. My prawn and squid starter had an enormous amount of the tomato and olive confit but not the corresponding amount of squid, prawn or pesto. My girlfriend’s salad had a few prawns on the side and an enormous bowl of salad. My boar was over cooked and the dried cabbage was an unusual accompaniment which didn’t work for me. We enjoyed our evening, being so well looked after in such a nice venue, despite the food not because of it. A shame.More

The service is great although the waiter was a bit smug. However, the fish dish was not very good and I wouldn't ever consider it as a Michelin dish. The desert, Pana-cota, was taken out of the fridge as is with the macaroons.

We got recommended this restaurant by our hotel. We couldn't have had a better time. Karolina, our waitress, was friendly, attentive and committed to make our evening extraordinary. She gave us tips on the wine (beautifully decanted and served through the night), she was genuinely...proud of the food which she served and understandably. Food was tasty, filling and beautifully presented. Highly recommend! Thank you to all the staff.More

Extremely nice, quite small restaurant a short distance from the main square. Although steaks are to the fore, I would recommend the more adventurous options, such as the sous vide salmon or the Wellington, which was cooked to perfection. I tried the chicken supreme which...came with a divine velvety beetroot puree. Hors d'oeuvres are visual treats and quite sizeable, so 2 between three might help the budget. The tuna was remarkable and the pierogi as light as a feather. Well worth a try and remember to book.More

What a fantastic restaurant!! We found this restaurant by walking past it and we are so glad that we went there for a meal - from the moment we arrived the staff were absolutely fantastic. The food was amazing - highly recommend the goats cheese...salad and also the steak (best steak I have ever had). We both agreed that it was the best meal we had during our stay in Krakow and will be highly recommending this to any friends and family who are heading there for a holiday.More

We had researched this restaurant before visiting and were looking forward to our visit- we were not disappointed! The restaurant is bright, welcoming and modern. There was a varied menu and the service was great. We ordered a bread board which came with an amazing...mushroom pate. The chef then sent out a gift for us to try. The gift was a fish tartar with passion fruit and pea puree- delicious! Both my partner and I ordered the beef wellington. This dish was amazing and came with buttered vegetables and a delicious sauce. We also had a glass of wine each with two gin and tonics. We were so surprised that the bill only came to 350 zlotties (roughly £65). Compared to what we would be served for that money at home this was a bargain! We would definitely visit again - thank you!More

After spending time looking where to eat eat in krakow, we decided to go with good reviews and a Michelin Star restaurant. Greeted and seated all good, my wife ordered the salmon. Unfortunately the Salmon was under cooked and without making a fuss we just...mentioned it to the waitress and front of house when collecting our plates. Well the next statement from the front of house was to say the least a strange reply, Well that's how we serve it/medium. Okay, but if we ordered a steak, you would ask, how would you like your steak cooked, medium, rare or well done. The front of house just disappeared and left the waitress to deal with us until we left, very unprofessional!!!! In all our travels we never heard of salmon served as medium. I had chicken which was nice.More

Spending New Year in Krakow meant we were looking for a special meal on 31 December. Owing to uncertainty about travel restrictions, we only decided at Christmas time that we would definitely be coming, so once we arrived we started looking for a good restaurant...to see in 2022. We wanted to spend the evening in the old town, and found Nota Resto through a search on Google Maps. We liked the look of their menu, and my partner e-mailed them on the morning of 30 December in the hope they had availability. They responded very quickly and told us that we could be accommodated, giving us a range of times. We decided to go for the 9pm slot and pre-paid for the evening (about 320 zlotys each). We arrived at the restaurant on time and were shown quickly to our table. A six-course tasting menu was on offer, and this was served over a three-hour period leading up to midnight. The six courses were very varied and of high quality, with our favourite being the beef tenderloin with spinach flan. The restaurant offered the option to pair each course with a specific wine, but we instead to chose order a bottle of Gruner Veltliner from the extensive wine list and we very impressed. At midnight everyone in the restaurant was also given a gloss of prosecco to see in the New Year. We were very impressed with our meal, and hope we can visit the restaurant again when we next visit Krakow.More

Me and my family had booked a table for the new years dinner 2021. I visited the restaurant 4 years ago and since then I have had a wish to come back - and we were not disappointed. We had a 6 course new years...menu and all courses were very delicious and presented in a beatiful way. The dishes were served over a 3 hours period by nice and observant people. We could order drinks during this period and all drinks were served in a proper way. Me and my family really hope that it will be possible to visit Nota Resto again.More
