Usual polish kitchen but very tasty. Avoid the desserts, the Sacher torte was dry as a bone and the apple strudel didn't look like strudel. Service excellent.

The restaurant is centrally located in Krakow old town. Was here with a party of six. Although we had no reservation the restaurant managed to arrange tables. It seems like a popular place so reservation is recommended. We had a mix of orders, both entrecote and angus steak. All very good, even though the angus steak was a bit overpriced.... More

The place has a very nice atmosphere and the starter we had was to die for. Chicken livers on crispy toast with onion confiture and hazelnuts is just great. Afterwards we tried: Sirloin steak with rocket & parmesan cheese salad with balsamic sauce and it was also a good meal. Only thing not great was the ordinary, machine made, cappuchino.... More

Decided to eat here after a long day trip to Auschwitz as it was just round the corner from our hotel. The Aperitif in it's decor is like so many other restaurants in the city It's surprising how large it is and has several different areas for eating in. A nice touch was the warm bread and butter than arrived... More

We arrived at this restaurant, which from the the outside looked small, however stretched far back and had the a little outdoor dining area at the back. There were 4 of us, only one of us ordered soup to start and all of us ordered mains. I had asked about the chicken livers, if they were hole or as a... More

I found Aperitif by wandering around the old town of Krakow. It is a quiet nice restaurant when I stepped in. I ordered the chiken liver and a steak, the steak was quite nice but the chicken liver was just so so. The atmosphere was quite nice here and the staff were friend, the location is super near the main... More

Food and service here is always fabulous. I have only ever stayed for lunch meals and they do a great 3 course set lunch menu which is cheap and fabulous. It never seems too busy during the day which I like and the toilets are also spotless which says a lot about a place.

Left us waiting for ages before seating us. Left is waiting even longer before taking our order. Left us waiting forever before bringing our drinks. Then brought the wrong food for one of us and missed parts of order for other. One of us finished food before the missing parts arrived. Other one had to wait nearly 30 mins later... More

We popped in here before our meeting, we had the bruschetta (which was amazing!!!) the salmon with potatoes, and spaghetti with a light Marinara sauce. They placed a nice basket of fresh bread on our table, which was warm and homemade. Sadly we couldn't stay for dessert but the food was really fantastic. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant... More

We chose this restaurant because it is located a little bit away from the Market Square which was extremely crowded. We had grilled trout which was very good but on the small side. We had an excellent white wine with it. Since it was a small portion we had room for dessert and opted for the chocolate ball which was... More
