This restaurant was close to our Pension in the square. The food was great, the staff and the service were great and the lemon vodka was amazing. Come with a huge appetite as the portions are more than ample. An excellent selection of Polish cuisine.

Here you have a good traditional polish food. All the traditional plates, ok wine and very cheap. I liked but it's very heavy food. Dont order starters unless you are extremely hungry. Friendly staff who is explaining what you should eat. Its a restaurant for locals and not so many tourists. You have a full meal with beer or wine... More

My meals here have been just like grandma made! The meat pierogi are the best I have had in Krakow and the mushroom soup is excellent!

booked a table glad we did as it is quite popular. Had a table near the window. Our waitress was lovely, always smiling and very attentive. Food was plentiful and very tasty. The beer was also nice, at the end of meek they gave a sweet and lemon vodka really like the vodka.

I wouldn't go there again, it's not worth it. First of all they didn't have what was on the menu. A bit annoying for the start, if several persons have to change their order. In the meantime we ordered some wine. The waitress suggested a homemade wine served in a decanter. Fortunately one of us tried it before we ordered... More

Friendly and helpful service. Good food in large portions. Enjoyed our two visits, and would recommend the 3 meats dish if you're really hungry :-)

We stumbled across this place and it looks very country kitchen and spacious. The service was good and the food was plentiful and well cooked. The Hungarian wine was nice and well priced. We had a good friendly and happy time here.

We went here on a recommendation from our AirBNB host to try the beetroot borsch. Not one to turn down a recommendation from a local, we promptly wandered down to the restaurant and ordered two Polish beers and the borsch. It was a lovely, clear beetroot soup with three pierogis and it was incredible! Similar to a consommé, this dish... More
