Thought we would try some traditional polish food and this restaurant had a three course meal to try. Excellent value and good insight. Very busy but good service

Great way to try some authentic polish food in lovely restaurant just off the main square. Small but exquisite series of dishes including one course containing three full size shots of flavoured vodka. Good job I was walking home! Fantastic mulled wine here too. The reason I haven't given it five stars is that the main course beef dish was... More

Good 3 course dinner, but with very small portions. The flavor was great and the wine was good for the price. Serving staff were miserable and not serviceminded. My advice to the owner of the place: send the entire staff at smile and service courses.

Found this place quite by chance, we stayed just out of the city centre and it was close to our tram stop at Poczta Glowna on the way the main square. We opted for the tasting menu at 99 Zloty, it was fantastic, started with a taster of pate, then chicken livers, beetroot soup, fillet of beef with barley and... More

We ate as a party of 4 and all ordered the Tasting Menu. It was advertised as 5-course but one of the courses was a selection of (very sweet) vodkas so really only 4 small plates of food. With the complimentary and delicious warm bread and butter this did however prove quite filling. The main course was steak on groats... More

This was the first restaurant I stopped in after serving in Kracow. Situated just off the main square in the Old Town so is geared to pulling in tourists. In essence the food is not bad quality at all, just a bit 'usual' if that makes sense. My burger was fine and it came with the standard fries - as... More

Found this by chance while visiting the city. It is in a side street just off the main square in the Old Town. First thing you feel is very welcome due to the friendly and attentive staff. The resturant its self has a good mix of diners and a nice relaxing atmosphere. Excellant prices for what turned out to be... More

We ate at this restaurant on Saturday night. My partner and I both ordered Angus steak which was served with "cracovian groats" this was a pearl barley with smoked bacon. It made a delicious alternative to potatoes or chips! I also sampled the cherry vodka was delicious. The price was very reasonable for the quality of the food.

Stopped by this place and grabbed a street-side table in the middle of the afternoon. Service was very slow for both taking our drink order as well as checking on us periodically. Maybe it was just a slow time, but it was over an hour and NO ONE came out to check to see if we wanted a drink, so... More

Charming restaurant close to the market square. Attractive interior. Courteous and efficient staff. Didn't book, just turned up and were welcomed in. Good Polish beer and delicious sour rye soup with quails eggs. Complemented the chef on the soup and we're given a complimentary dessert! What a lovely touch. We would definitely eat at Aperitif again if and when we... More
