We have visited this restaurant previously when we visited Krakow, and again the meal was excellent standard. The service and surrounding were fantastic, and staff very friendly. We could not fault anything. The vodka shots between meals were very light, and home brewed with Hazel nuts, raspberries, strawberries etc.

The food is absolutely delicious, innovative and the place offers a nice variety of local cuisine. The house vodkas are great especially when you let the friendly team choose and mix them for you (Apple and cinnamon actually go together quite well, try it). And the bartender is the local version of Jennifer Lawrence! :)

We had not made a reservation and being a group of five people we had no real hope to get in. But we tried anyway and we were lucky. A table just came at our dispoasal. Great food. Nice atmosphere.

The vodkas are superb - I'd urge people who don't even drink the stuff to try it - and the food? I'm a vegetarian, and there are no more than four items on the menu (two starters,... More

The food was very very good. The place is nice. We eat pierogis as starter and dishes based on meat, beetroot and cabbage. The meal with beetroot was original but very good. I strongly suggest this restaurant.
