It is my favourite place to go for a drink. Apart from classic cocktails, they create their own recipes. I especially recommend Stardust. Food also won't disappoint you. And as a cheesecake lover I must admit I adore the one they have.

The food was good and reasonably priced. The waitress refused to give me tap water, falsely claiming that Krakow water was unsafe in an attempt to force me to pay for bottled water.

Scandale Royal is still an excellent venue for drinks in the Old Town. Just off the Main Square, conveniently located on Plac Szczepański. They used to serve fancy dinner dishes prepared by a crazy but talented chef but nowadays their menu is somewhat limited. Expect professional service and fine drinks. Glamour interiors and nice cosmoplootan crowd.

Stopped here for breakfast on a whim and was really pleased we did. Great choice of English, Polish or continental breakfasts all served quickly and with a friendly smile. Would recommend this place just a stones throw from the main square.

We were staying at the apartments above the bar and his was were we started off the night and invariably ended up at the end.

A nice little café/restaurant with indoor and pavement seating. They serve good breakfasts (I recommend the Polish) and snacks and have a very helpful team of staff. One thing to watch is a fairly dangerous step inside the building, which I managed to fall from (the lighting isn't good in there)

My friend and I had dinner at Scandale Royal. It's in a good location right on the square. You can eat outside but we ate inside- it has a very nice interior. The food was great. My friend had a hamburger and I had beef broth. With one large beer and two soft drinks the cost was 93 Zloty. The... More

We had the French omelet for breakfast which includes two sides (we got bacon and sausage) and two small rolls. It was very good. The service was very nice!
