Cafe Oranzeria is located on the top floor of Hotel Kossak. The restaurant's floor to ceiling windows provide the most delightful view in Krakow, including Wawel Castle, the Old Town and the banks of the Vistula river. From spring to autumn, the restaurant's open air terrace also allows guests to enjoy their breakfast or morning coffee with a dash of sunlight. The beauty of the city and Head Chef carefully crafted European menu with a hint of fusion, creates an unrivalled visual and culinary experience.

We selected this restaurant as the view from the rooftop is wonderful. We arrived a few minutes ahead of our 8.00 reservation, and selected from the menu, considering that we would just have a main course and dessert. We also ordered a bottle of wine,...and one of water. I noticed that the menu stated that dishes are prepared to order, so diners may have to wait, which is generally a good point. We both ordered Beef Tenderloin in herbs with dark sauce baked potatoes / green peas / asparagus / sugar peas. The drinks came and were fine. By 8.30, there was no sign of any food. Nor by 8.40. I asked the waiter and he said - "another ten minutes". The meals arrived at just after 9.00. They were delicious - but really an hour for what are basically steaks, is inexcusable. when I questioned the waiter he said that they are always full on Fridays, hence the delay. My thoughts were that if this was a weekly occurrence, why not staff up accordingly? We were in Krakow for three days. In every other restaurant, lunchtime or evening, the service was timely - why not at Café Oranzeria? The waiter asked if we wanted desserts. I asked if there would be a delay and was told "about half an hour", so we did not. The three choices of dessert were a sponge cake; ice cream; and tiramisu - not a lot of prep but half an hour! Instead we returned to our hotel, ordered a dessert and coffee each which were in front of us within five minutes. Oranzeria - get your finger`s out!More

Nice place, nice view, nice and friendly waitress. The food was really good (and gluten free, even if they tell you that there can be the possibility of contamination). The only defect is that they don’t have a big menu. I recommend it for sure!

It was worth it for the roof-top view alone, but the staff and food were both awesome. We had a three course meal with drinks and compared to Munich prices, it was a steal!

We have been welcomed by a kind waiter in glasses. He prepared for us a table in side - the one with the best view. But he also offered us an outdoor table - if it is not to windy for us. We decided to...sit on the terrace. Views - amazing! Wawel Castle, Vistula river, churches... Funny thing was that I ordered food for two people - beef tartare, salad, steak - but waiter asked: "And what for you lady?". Of course I am not so greedy, so I just repeat an order seperating it. What surprised me - waiter didn't ask me how grilled the steak should be. So I just decided to wait and see what he will bring to the table. Beef tartare was very tasty, they way of serving (especially the egg) was great. Salad looks delicious too, but I tried only a little bit - I can recommend it too. Time for steak! Medium to well done. Very tasty for me. Meat was soft and it was melting in my mouth. I enjoyed pepper sauce, my partner didn't, so you have to try it and decide because we have split decision. For meat there are definitely two times "YES". Dear waiter, thank you for your service. Everything was well-served.More

We chose this restaurant for a late celebration for my husband’s 70th birthday. Whilst I mentioned this in order to have the best choice of window tables - I was not expecting the beautiful golden table display nor the delightful birthday cake. The food was...absolutely delicious. The service superb. The imaginative blend of flavours and the artistry in easy the food was served - totally recommend the flambé plums and the best Irish coffee ever. We went for our last 2 nights in Kraków. Would definitely have been worth staying an extra week -j to eat at this restaurant!More

We had good reviews from other guest. We found it expensive and disappointing. The cider was the cheapest variety that could have been bought in the UK. The napkins were still damp at the time of dining. Nothing specific but not good

We had our wedding reception for 73 people here in February 2020 and it was fab! The food is incredible, and our wedding cake which was amazing! All the staff (including Anna the manager) were fantastic and could not do enough for our guests and...ourselves! Lots of guests commented on how excellent the service was. The views are incredible both during the day and at night! Thank you!!!More

The place is always closed for some private functions. Been there twice in a week and they have proudly announced it is closed. Unpleasant reception at the lobby level of the place.

The restaurant is on the 7th floor of the Hotel Kossak and we ate here as we were staying at the hotel. There is a separate gluten free menu and my wife had an excellent meal here. I chose the normal mushroom pasta which was...a disappointment as the sauce was watery and the pasta overcooked. The views over the river towards Wawel Castle were however lovely.More

This restaurant is on the top floor so take the lift from the hotel lobby. Food was okay but not brilliant. Prices were expensive and the overall atmosphere was a bit clinical. The staff were pleasant but not friendly. I wouldn’t go back myself but...give it a try, you might like it.More
