I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and was very pleased with it. We got there and the hostess was a bit frazzled as they were going to be full booked with reservations in an hour's time. I assured her that we could eat in an hour if they could serve us. She quickly seated us and then it took... More

We also had desserts which were delicious and vodkas again very good. We... More

Booked about 2 weeks in advance and glad we did because many people were turned away on the night because it was full. This is not surprising as the food was superb, well cooked Polish menu in huge portions. The restaurant service was excellent and we had a most enjoyable evening in a cosy, warm restaurant full of local atmosphere... More

Popped in randomly off the street. Had a delightful meal, high quality and not pretentious. Superb tender beef, excellent home made chips and terrific value. Try the home made vodka as well.

We booked this restaurant a couple of weeks before our trip to Krakow having read the great reviews and only just managed to get a table. No wonder it is so popular; the food was fantastic, the service perfect, there was a great atmosphere and even live music. I had the prunes wrapped in bacon to start which were delicious,... More

Just walked in to what I thought was a bar and restaurant, to order a coffee for me to find a packed establishment eating magnificent food with an ambience of Allo allo a British tv comedy. The food I saw people eating was extraordinary good looking, so I ordered the potato soup as I had already eaten elsewhere. It was... More

We did not have a reservation but given it is the low season we thought we would be fine. We just managed to get a table at 6pm as the people behind us were turned away. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was simply wonderful, probably one of the best meals I have ever had! Both my... More
