I visited the restaurant with my boyfriend yesterday. Our waitress was very friendly and she let us taste a few different types of wine before we chose our favourite. The food was very tasty and good value for money. Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is visiting Krakow!

This place is a treat. Really good food - quite sophisticated but not lardy da. There was live unobtrusive music the night we were there. Good vodkas and fantastic service. No complaints whatsoever.

A friend and I were looking for a place to eat in the Jewish district on a Tuesday, and Starka was highly rated on several sites. We stopped by the restaurant around 8pm and told that since we didn't have a reservation that we probably couldn't get a table until 10pm. We decided to stick with our plan anyway, and... More

I strongly recommend this restaurant. We went here for my mother's birthday, and we were very satisfied with the experience. The atmosphere in the restaurant, the sweet and friendly staff and delicious food made us sad that we were leaving the next day. This is a place you should visit more than once! Try the lamb 😍😍

This restaurant serves traditional Polish food. As I am not a big fan of pork I had some problems finding a meal that sounded good. I went for the duck and was not disappointed! The meat was of excellent quality and the sauces really complimented the duck. The atmosphere would probably be better in the evening, we were there for... More

We picked this restaurant of trip advisor and were not disappointed we had three courses and drinks for less than thirty pounds the same meal at home would have nearly been three times the price.The food and service were both excellent.

Located in a slim lane in the old town Starka restaurant is food heaven. Unlike its neighbouring eateries, it stays open longer- so you get more time to tour Krakow. We were in Kraków for a short visit and used trip advisor to find this gem. The food was amazing! I had the beef tenderloin with blue cheese sauce and... More

Went here with my husband upon the recommendation of a friend. Lovely place with great food. Had a very pleasant dinner until it was time to order dessert. We asked for a menu so we could order dessert but when we were ready and tried to order, the waiters ignored us. This went on for a while and we kept... More
