Lovely breakfast for the reasonable price. Me and my gf had a salmon bagel with shakshouka which we never tryed before but I was awesome. Had some regeneration smoothie with that and it was lovely.

Second time at Bistro Bene. First time I visited in 2019. We have had breakfast few times during our short visit in Krakow. Delicious food and wonderful staff. Will visit again upon my next trip to Krakow.

Excellent coffee, lovely atmosphere. My husband had scrambled egg, Polish sausage and bacon. I had porridge with seeds which would’ve been ok but for the chocolate drops sprinkled on top!

Sold out of gluten free although I called them to be sure few hours before to make reservation. They did not let people in without reservation, as a result of that we were all alone through out the whole evening, a bit weird. Food ok

I have visited this restaurant because we knew the chef, well known Polish Chef. However our lunch was slightly disappointing, starting with dirty water bottle, there was something on it, appears to be white cream or piegon byproduct. I asked for a different bottle, bottle...was wiped and came back to me. Later, once we got our steaks, I realised that there is a green coloured sauce at the side for the steak. I have asked to waiter about it, her reply was "I don't know, I should ask about it." Also, i have asked about how many days the steak was aged, since every chef has different style on it. I had similar reply that she was going to ask about it to kitchen. After couple of minutes, she came back with following answers; -Sauce is herbs, -Steak is aged for 30 days, I think 30 days is good for aging, just above the minimum but its acceptable in a restaurant. Herbs is sooo wide subject in gastronomy, i was stunned to reply to that answer and I told thank you. When you are in a restaurant, especially in a place with Tomasz Leśniak's name, you expect the staff to be more knowledgeable about the food they are serving. How dare I to ask for wine pairing then? I was half way through my steak and I realised that there are inconsistencies in my steak, uneven cooking, while half of my steak was medium, other half was rare. I am not a criminal to ask for a well done steak but I am not fan of rare also. So, medium is always the way for me. After I wasn't able yo eat it anymore, I asked the waitress to the table and show it to her, luckily my friends steak was proper medium, and we had chance to compare it and she saw it too. I asked her who cooked my steak, because I highly doubt that that person is a chef. And I am too polite to dispute the bill or ask for another steak. So, just wasted some money and left. Now I am writing it from a different restaurant. And I am also attaching my receipt as a proof of visit.More

We were a large group of 14 people and the restaurant prepared a great menu with a starters variation (beef brisket dumplings were my favourite) and three dishes to choose from as a main and a dessert. Very good food and nice and friendly staff....High recommendationMore
