Great selection of traditional polish and some modern dishes. Dumplings were delicious as was the beef, chicken and pasta dishes we shared. Lovely food, and friendly staff. Highly recommended. Only 2 mins walk from the main square.

The food was amazing! The soup in bread bowl is a must. We really enjoyed the dumplings. Borscht was excellent, as well. Make sure to get it with dumplings.

An amazing restaurant. Food was great, service was great, but for some reason the place was empty and I have no idea why! It has a great blend of Polish food and some more generic dishes, really there is something there for everyone. And even...better, it’s cheap! (especially for where it is!) Me and my mate got two mains each and two pints and it came to roughly £15 each, which I feel is great for the quality of food we had. If i’m ever in Kraków again, i’ll definitely be coming back!More

We came across this place by chance when out looking for a restaurant. The duck dumplings are absolutely gorgeous and jam packed full with duck (better than the black duck restaurant), and we also had beef cheeks, steamed vegetables and meat broth soup. My partner...enjoyed the beef cheeks so much that he kept talking about beef cheeks all week and we came here again for our final evening. This was the only restaurant in Krakow that had nice fresh vegetables although the second time the portion was much smaller with no brussel sprouts but the cauliflower was cooked lovely and the main dish had tasty mushrooms. The seasoned chicken dish with veg and pasta was cooked very nicely. The broth soup was nice and the duck dumplings dipped in the broth was so tasty. The prices were also very reasonable.More

We are on a short city break in Krakow and the traditional Polish restaurant we’d picked out turned out to be still closed due to Covid concerns - although pretty much everything else is open and well organised for safety. Walked down towards the main...square and discovered this place. Nice short menu which usually bodes well. Soups were excellent. For main I had beef cheeks with vegetables and dumplings - superb. I’d fancied a dark beer to complement it - our waiter was diligent enough to advise that this beer is strong at around 9% abv but hey-ho I was only having one and it did the job perfectly. I also stole several of my wife’s potatoes - boiled and very gently roasted - from her pork chop with cabbage. The food and drinks are very reasonably priced. It opens all day until 11pm and I’d recommend it on all counts!More

Located in the old town of Kraków. Nice and clean place with friendly staff. Good English skills. We had 20 polish dumplings (duck, cottage cheese, veal, beef) with butter, cream and plum (?) sauce. We also tried chicken with pasta and vegetables and flat bread...with pulled pork, cucumbers and tomatoes. Everything was very tasty and of high quality. Good choice for especially for the dumplings.More

Decided to try some traditional polish cuisine (beef and bacon pierogi dumplings & potato pancakes with wild stew). Was delighted. Lovely food and good atmosphere. Price is also very good, didn't expect it to be with being just off the main square in the old...town. Definitely worth a visit whilst in KrakowMore
