Because of our stay at Betmanowska hotel, this was our breakfast restaurant. It was a very nice buffet, and the variety of warm dishes was very good too. The waiters at the restaurant was very nice and friendly.

The menu choice is far more inclusive than most restaurants around the square. Perfect location. Booking is advisable. Very comfortable surroundings. Our waitress was called Kinga, her service and friendliness was outstanding!!! Any restaurant owner would be poaching her to work for them. As a...family of 6 we had between us Steak, Trout, Pizza, Beef Stew and Chicken with mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes. We didn’t leave a bit. We also had a very welcomed vodka shot upon paying the bill. I would also recommend the house white.. cheap and delicious.More

Everything is fat. Fish is also fried or from oven but with bacon. Baked patatos are not baked - they are deeply fried. I do not recommend...

I recently dined here with friends on a whim as we wanted to try traditional Polish cuisine whilst staying in Krakow. This restaurant is well located on the square with lovely outdoor tables and a cosy interior. We had the mixed pierogi (dumplings) to share...for starters which were excellent, one of the group also had traditional potato cakes with gulash soup that was equally as delicious. The overall experience was topped off by fantastic service from our waiter- I will certainly be back when next in Krakow!More

This place was bustling during our visit. The pizzas are fresh to order, baked in a traditional pizza oven. The location is great with speedy service. During the evenings they often have live music around to be enjoyed. Worth a try.
