The restaurant is very cozy. Our food was cold, but they fixed and we got new portions, an apology and free glas of vodka. So far so good. Nothing spoiled so far. The food was very tasty, but there were a lot of fat on...my ribs. My wifes was better. The portion was smaller than on the menu picture. Salat was boring. For a starter the restaurant offer you a slice of bread and homemade lard for free. Right before we left some regulars came. They got a lot more bread. In my openion service should be same to all customers. We expected more and were a bit disapointed when we left (I was also still a little bit hungry).More

Restaurant has very good deal lunch option. For 19.90 PLN so less than 5 eur you can eat classic lunch - soup + main course with tasty fruit compote. Everything was really good. Big beer for just 5 PLN. It is valid from 12:00 till...17:00 from Monday till Friday. Service was also very kind.More

we were looking at the menue when a diner left the restaurant and said he had been in there several times, so in we went had a look through 2 menus as everything is explained in English, the waitress was helpfull ad she said the...meals were large and so I had Duck in plum and cherries with roast potatoes delicious.hubby had the polish equivalent of thier mixed grill, too much for him ,only ate a fraction of it as there were too may flavours and textures of the food made it quite unpleasant , it depends on what people like though it was an experience, the atmosphere was lovely as were the staff, red house wine so tasty,More

Ate a lovely lunch set for 19.90 zl including a generous soup portion and main. Freshly cooked and flavorful, would definitely come back.

We had server Iwona and she was wonderful. She suggested food and drinks. She was super friendly and checked on us multiple times. Iwona even called a taxi for us to allow us to not overpay on the street. The food was absolutely delicious and...more authentic and not commercialized. I was recommended this restaurant to eat at by our hotel vs eating on the main square down town and it did not disappoint. Hidden Gem! The portion size was so generous so much food, we had to carry a doggie bag home with us.More

We spent 5 days in Kraków, eating out at different restaurants each night. We were fortunate that we didn’t have a bad meal. On our last night we ate @ W Starej Kuchni-and oh my goodness we were utterly blown away. It’s a rustic little...place, down a side road off the main square. The welcome was warmly attentive. We ordered and enjoyed drinks and complimentary bread with pork fat (try it!!) whilst we waited for our meal. The food when it came was outstanding. Rustic food, perfectly cooked. Big flavours and decent sized portions. We voted it the best meal we had eaten during our visit, our only regret being that we didn’t discover it earlier. We had no room for dessert however the latte was delicious. The ambience, service and price were all absolutely perfect. A special thank you to our charming waitress.More
