The service and food were amazing. Our waitress helped us learn some polish words and really made us feel right at home. This is a must when you are in Krakow

We were recommended this restaurant as a place our polish waitress the night before would go with her friends! It was a wonderful find! We were tired after walking all day and both decided on a burger! My friend had the vege one and I...have the classic beef. They were both delicious. As we’re out perogi to start! We had a selection of home made vodka too. Some were delicious. Such as manderin, blueberry and mint. Good service but 1 small complaint. We’d brought 2 bottles of still water and as we were leaving I asked for a glass of water. I was told no I couldn’t have one. I pointed out that the table next to us had a jug of tap water. They insisted it was a battle that had been poured into a jug. I asked if they had a tap for water to which she replied “no we have no taps” I just decided to leave it there and we left. That ended our evening on a sour note. But I’d go again! I’d 100% recommend this place! Enjoy xMore

We would have liked to have dinner but for some reason our reservation never went through. We ended up having lunch instead which was nice too. The food was tasty but the inner yard is maybe not that cosy.

We visited Starka off the strength of the reviews and looking for some more traditional style of Polish cuisine. We were not disappointed with one of the group claiming it possibly the best meal of his life. The service was incredible and the drinks top...level. Considering flying over from the UK just for another meal out here! Thank you for an epic evenings food and service.More

My server Natalia was very friendly and gave great suggestions, fast efficient service. Definitely place...to visit. I strongly recommend.More

My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of taking an evening meal here just recently on our visit over from France. We were hosted by our very kind and helpful waitress, Daria, who was more than a pleasure. The food was just as brilliant as...the service and we even got to try some caramel flavored vodka. Typically, I am not a fan of vodka, but the drink was delicious. I would absolutely recommend this place for the food as well as the staff, especially if you are fortunate enough to have Daria like we did.More

Managed to book online the day before, would definitely suggest this in advance as its very popular. Really nicely decorated with candle lit tables. We were given some complimentary bread with home made cottage cheese whilst they prepared our beef cheeks and duck mains which...were both excellent and well presented. The staff were very polite and friendly. Would strongly suggest a visit, lovely food at an affordable priceMore

I was keen to try polish food while in krakow and was recommended this restaurant. I am so pleased that I did. When we arrived, they were fully booked but very kindly let us use a table before the next guests arrived. Our waitress, Kinga,...was so helpful and the service was incredible. We tried the flavoured vodkas which were really lovely and much better than any you can buy at home. The food was delicious and one of the best meals I have ever eaten. The whole experience was faultless and if I’m passing through Krakow again, I will be paying another visit.More

This is a gem of a restaurant. I ate in their garden area, and it was very quaint and beautiful. The service by Daria was excellent. The food was not only delicious, but also beautifully presented. Definitely try one of their homemade vodkas. I had...the coconut vodka, and it was delicious!! Highly recommend this restaurant!More

We ate here on our first night in Krakow. Looking at the reviews we wanted to eat here and we ceretainly were not disappointed. At the end of the night we were well fed and stuffed. The vodka shots are there signature drink and certainly...a great way to start the meal. Food was traditional Polish, hearty but well prepared and very tasty. The pierogi was superb and the pork knuckle well cooked. Although possibly just above average Polish prices it was worth it. I would certainly go back again.More
