Having never tried Polish food before I was absolutely blown away with the quality and flavour of our meal. The food is exceptional value for money. Why anyone would waste time and money on eating from fast-food chains etc when Kraków is fully of amazing restaurants just like this is beyond me! Trust me, this place is good.

If you are looking for traditional polish food this is one for sure. Really loved zur w chlebie and grzanec wine. Portions are big, so be well prepared. Been few times here for lunch - just simple, delicious and inexpensive food.

My AirBnB host recommended this restaurant for authentic polish food. Just a minute or two from the main square and you will find it. A really lovely and traditional setting, my boyfriend and I really liked the setting and were given a seat by the window. I can't remember the exact name but we ordered a plate each full of... More

This was a lucky find one cold evening between Christmas and New Year's Eve. The restaurant appeared to be full but we were accommodated by the helpful staff. We enjoyed an excellent meal. Food was hot, fresh and plentiful! You must go there hungry! The service was equally excellent and a lady who was our waitress was extremely attentive and... More

The food was mediocre, the wait time even for simple dishes was over an hour (although it wasn't very busy). Ordered items were not serves. Staff was not attentive

We stumbled across this restaurant on a very cold evening and it looked busy and inviting. At first, the restaurant owner said he didn't have a table for us, then a couple of girls shouted out for us to join them on their table, as it was such tasty food and didn't want us to miss the experience. The food... More

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
