Enjoyed this restaurant. Food typically Polish - fresh and tasty. Waitress was helpful allowing us to sample some wine before ordering a bottle.

We discovered this restaurant on tripadvisor after arriving in Krakow. We didn't have a reservation but decided to try to get a table for dinner. We were greeted by a lovely lady who explained the only table that wasn't reserved, was next to the door. It was cold and she wouldn't normally make people sit there. We said we didn't... More

Visited the restaurant following recommendations of our nearby hotel and were not disappointed. We hadn't booked a table however they fitted us in one hour later which was a sign to us that the food must be good. The atmosphere of the restaurant was lovely and we were made to feel very welcome. There was a great choice of polish... More

My wife and I have just spent five days in Krakow and, as we found many things in common everywhere we ate I am including this paragraph in all reports on the restaurants we visited. Service and friendliness are the highest in all establishments - you really feel like a valued guest. Value for money is incredibly good compared to... More

Really decent traditional Polish cuisine. Duck was tasty, not to dry and soft at the same time. Stuff was also very nice and helpfull. For a mistake in serving (which was very fast fixed) we were extra served (for free) with home made tincture. The only disadvantage might be that it is relatively expansive.
