Trying the local cuisine, a nice spot of lunch, waiting on service a little on the slow side but worth a visit if you’re not in any kind of rush.

We ate here on our last night before flying back to England. We were looking for something more traditional and stumbled across this restaurant. It's in a great location in the main Market Square, it's got a lovely ambiance and the food was just delicious!...I just regret we didn't find this place any sooner as we would have certainly gone back for a 2nd time.More

This restaurant is a restaurant I always look forward to visiting on any holiday I take to Krakow, its such a warm welcoming restaurant and in a great location. Staropolska Restaurant looks superb, interior is fantastic, traditional, great decor and furnishings and plenty of seating...options spread throughout this restaurant both inside and when the weather is good outside looking out onto the busy and beautiful Rynek Glowny. Latest visit saw my twin brother and I enjoy a delicious pork meal here and also enjoy some great local Polish beers,restaurant was busy, a great atmosphere, staff were wonderful, just a really good restaurant to chill out in . We really enjoyed our meal & beers in here before we moved on and as on every other visit to here we had a great time. Staropolska Restaurant is easy to locate on Rynek Glowny,an area teeming with pubs, bars, cafe's and restaurants and some amazing architecture and a major tourist destination. Opening hours are; Monday to Sunday, 8am till 11pm. Well worth checking out if you're in the area.More

I really liked this restaurant. The atmosphere was very Polish - as was most of the clientele (always a good sign in my opinion when locals eat at a restaurant). The menu offered a variety of dishes - I only wished I could have tried...more. But the goulash with potato cakes was amazing. Just what was needed on a winters snowy evening, to fend of the cold outside. The local beer was excellent and the prices very reasonable. There were other dishes serving meats grilled over a charcoal fire. The staff were very friendly and efficient and all who served us spoke excellent English (obviously taking pity on me for my attempts at Polish). If you like meat and a rustic atmosphere, look no further than here. The prices were very reasonable.More

We had two wonderful meals at Staropolska right on the main square in Krakow, watching the trumpeter on the hour from the beautiful clock tower. Our waiter Andrei was great - he was attentive and had some excellent suggestions.
