Visited after a day at Auchwitz with no reservation. Portions were large and hearty and filling which was very much needed. The only negative was out main came out as we were still eating our starters which has never happened before but we didnt make...a fuss and just shuffled things round to fit on the table. The only complaint to a rather tasty traditional meal.More

Great breakfast, the omelette was light and fluffy, and the kracow breakfast was lovely. They also do an English breakfast that looked good. Good coffee and friendly service

This restaurant is a very good choice at any time of the day. I had breakfast, lunch and dinner during my stay in Kraków. Food is well cooked nicely presented and delicious. Generous portions, the dumplings are the best I’ve ever had and special mention...to the Baltic herring, just so good! Soups are tasty , superb goulash and even the fried crispy chicken with fries and homemade coleslaw are special. Lovely breakfast, I tried the scrambled eggs with three toppings ( very nice) and delicious Kraków breakfast, so well presented! Special mention to the staff, all young, very friendly and professional running the place with no stress. Thanks you for looking after me!More

Another great meal tonight our 6th or 7th visit, one of our must eat restaurants when we visit Krakow. Great food and value if you are staying in Krakow would highly recommend.

Visited yesterday by a friend’s recommendation. The waitress was great and helped us order. The menu was fully English too and food was labelled with vegetarian, vegan etc which was great for us. The food was amazing! Our first experience of Polish food and it...was so delicious. We couldn’t believe how cheap it was either. Would definitely recommend and visit againMore

If you are looking for a decent place for lunch and you do not want to pay too much, that's a good choice. Food is very tasty, nicely-served and you do not need to wait too long for it. Wine was ok as well. Good...option for tourists, students, groups of friends or families. Good value.More

The restaurant has a great location (walking distance from main attractions in downtown Krakau). It has a very inviting atmosphere and friendly service. Also great value (we had dinner for 3 including drinks for about €30!)

Went here after seeing all the good reviews and was not disappointed. Actually was blown away. Both of us had a main dish and a side, all was beautiful. I recommend the Sour Soup and Meat and Onion Dumplings. Good selection is different beers. Our...waitress was lovely and very helpful. Could not fault the place.More

Nice busy place you may have to wait to get in. Staff all very young service can be slow but they try hard. Some can speak English. Small menu choices but adequate and well-cooked food. It's a lot cheaper than in the square, beers are...9 Zloty, in the square, they are 18 for the same thing. The only problem experienced when paying the CC machine defaults so quickly to paying in the card currency with extra fees and a poor exchange rate. Its law you have to be provided a choice to pay in local currency or the merchants' exchange rate which is always worse than your card bank. This happened to us twice but was eventually corrected by a very nice young man who knew what he was doing, he did say though even he was surprised how fast the machine goes once you enter your pin number. We always paid cash after that but they lost business because of it.Be careful and watch what is going on when you pay with your CC anywhere abroad, it could have cost us over £70 more just in fees etc over the week.More

We stumbled across this place on Google maps from a nearby bar and really glad we did. We ate here twice. Modern interior but with a cool vibe. There was a pianist on the Friday we ate there, however, the main area was full so...we had to eat at the back so were completely out of it. Book in advance I guess is the answer on the weekend. The service was very professional and friendly. We liked how you could order a main meal and select two of your sides which was good as we're not a big fan of the pickled veg and sauerkraut that is popular in Poland. Two of our favourite dishes that we tried were the goulash and schnitzel, or listed as 'pork fried in lard' on the menu. The portions were really very generous. It was really reasonably priced too. I think we had two courses each and 3 beers between us for under £20.More

Not sure. I’m not a vegan. Most menus have vegan choices. Google the menu.
