Beautifully decorated breakfast room with comfortable and sumptuous furniture. Comprehensive selection of anything that you could possibly want for breakfast from smoked trout to porridge (oatmeal) via all the usual fare, presented exquisitely. Attentive service from a young team who were even proactive in making...suggestions. Special thanks for the cheerful Sylwia who was also helpful in making two reservations for evening meals - can’t wait to try the food in the evening.More

We visited on our final night in Krakow and had a drink downstairs in the bar before dinner, the decor was fantastic, had a real luxurious feel to it, even the cocktail menu elegantly done and both my boyfriend and I commented on how heavy...the gold menu was (it wasn’t real gold but it was weighty for something so small.) I had a cocktail with rum and hibiscus that I’d never heard of before and LOVED it. Like most things in Krakow, despite the hotel being quite premium, the pricing remained reasonable. We then moved to the restaurant upstairs, it’s very quiet in January and especially on a Monday night so if you’re a load group, maybe not the best day to go. The team here were attentive to the right level and super friendly. For starters we had quail consumee and the tuna tartare and for mains we had sea bass and duck leg with potato. The consumee was really great and I think it might be the traditional way to serve it in Krakow which is with handmade authentic style noodles, I was a little confused by them on arrival, they didn’t really have much of a taste to them (you’ll see in the photo that they look like floating pieces of batter or bread of some kind.) My boyfriend felt the ratio of tuna tartare to avocado in his dish weren’t quite right. The sea bass and duck mains were nice enough but nothing spectacular. I’d recommend Gavi if you’re staying in the hotel or very nearby, we had travelled a little bit to go here for dinner so had high hopes which is maybe why we weren’t so blown away. Nevertheless we enjoyed our evening and left feeling full.More

This beautifully stunning hotel restaurant won’t disappoint. The food is delicious and matches the quaint atmosphere. We visited during the Christmas Holiday season which was matched with decorations and music. My partner and I tried to stay with traditional Polish food which our fantastic waiter...(Tomasz) helped to recommend and even gave a brief history and the region it’s known for. He matched our wine and other drinks and was always light hearted and warm. We highly recommend a visit and allow the wonderful staff to take you on a culinary journey. Thanks Tomasz for your hospitality.More

We were very excited to go to this restaurant that friends had recommend to us and even on trip advisor the reviews were amazing. We were 10 mins late because of google map so we arrived at 8:40 instead of 8:30pm. The restaurant was empty...(maybe 7-8 clients maximum). As soon as we « check in » the waiter (named Tomasz) said to his colleague: « of course that’s the 8:30, table late.. » loud enough we could hear and feel awkward, but I didn’t answer back since he was right. As soon as we were sitting, the music was so low we couldn’t hear it so everyone in the very empty restaurant was whispering, even more, the tables were so large that we were quiet far from each other (sitting one in front of the other). The table next to us was empty so I decided to move my chair to be sitting next to my husband. As soon as I did it, the waiter came to told me off and asked me to move back. And then he was only talking to my husband NEVER to me, which was starting to be irritating. We got our food. Everything was very good, no complaints about it. At the end, I paid the bill , which wasn’t cheap. He said multiple times that the service wasn’t included, which is funny because as a Canadian, we are used to tip since it’s in our culture. So one of my Canadian card didn’t work after 3 attempts (which happens often when I’m away, so I always have a back up). I took my other card and it worked first thing, great and then the waiter said, with a very arrogant tone: “well I’m not going to ask you to put the service on a card then ..” As if I didn’t have the money to pay for the meal and service. The over all experience with the food was very good but the service was very bad with this employee. We were very disappointed and not recommend you to go there for that amount of money. Go find a cute and typical polish restaurant for way cheaper and a good experience with the staff.More
