Zurek soup + chleb ze smalcem = 10/10 + Many varieties of tasty herring. you should take a mix of 4 if you want to try more varieties, because portion sizes are big. + Good beer on tap + Reasonable prices

Was in Krakow with my wife for a few days, and having been a few times on solo trips, this was the first time we had been there together, so I was showing her around the old town. Bar on the main square can be...something of a tourist trap, so I was happy to wander the back streets, and one place we stumbled on was Ambasada Sledzia tucked away down a street or two from the main square. Great place to spend early evening on the terrace area and just watch the world go by. Also it is incredibly cheap, with a beer and a glass of wine costing just over £4. We had not planned to stay long, but ended up staying much longer than had planned too. Staff are great and its a lovely spot to just hang out in if you find yourself passing by.More

If there's one bar I tend to always drop into on any trip to Krakow I take it's Ambasada Sledzia ,a bar offering great beers and vodka's and simple bar snacks such as herring and sausage,it's always packed and always a joy to visit. I...love the look of this bar ,the interior is superb .its basically an eye catching serving bar ,bench seating and cool wall art ,a cool locals bar. We were meeting family and friends so my twin brother Stephen and I were here for a quick vodka ,we chose cherry vodka service was quick and the vodka totally delicious. A big fan of the flavoured vodka's available in Krakow ,the cherry vodka is a particular favourite of ours . We really enjoyed our vodka's in here before we moved on and as on all previous visits to here we had a great time. Ambasada Sledzia is easy to locate along Ulica Stolarska,a street and area teeming with pubs,bars and restaurants. Opening hours are; Monday to Sunday ,open from 9am till very late. Well worth checking out if you're in the area.More

Ambasada Śledzia is an excellent bar that offer's a unique concept as it offer's vodka and herring (Śledź) or sausage (Kiełbasa).A superb bar located in a period building on a street full of embassie's'the bar itself is a joy to visit and is reminiscent of...the bars in Prague with thick white washed walls which have many interesting features and lot's of good seating options even though it's only a small bar. We have visited numerous times as its very lively and the vodka shot's are superb and there are several other bars in this brilliant building.We visited this superb bar early in the evening and it was rammed and it took us a minute to get served.When we went to here we had a Soplica cherry vodka which where served iced cold and they were very cheap. This is an excellent bar in a great area and is very easy to locate from Plac.Wszystkich Świętych bus or tram stop its a few minutes walk.(This is my first review of Ambasada Słedzia). Opening Hours. Monday-Sunday-09.00-00.00. Hours May Differ From Above. Public Transport. Bus Stop. Plac.Wszystkich Świętych bus stop. Tram Stop. Plac.Wszystkich Świętych tram stop.More

Went first as part of a food tour but then went back 3 times! Herring was not something we’d have at home but was really nice. Similarly for flavoured vodka shots from the freezer which I had more of in those visits than I have...had in all my life (and I’m 54!). Really nice quirky place and such good value. Would definitely recommend.More

If you want to get drunk and have good hangover this place is amazing to cure it. Good beer and tasty, salty herring different ways. Big portions of herring, so do not order everything before you try one. Then order next.

I'm not a fan of herring and was dreading this stop on a food tour. I have to say it was the biggest, meatiest pickled herring that I've ever seen...and it really wasn't bad. I suppose that I could get used to it. This is...a cool place to go in a very cool street, right across from the American consulate in Krakow.More

This place is herring and vodka, so if you like these stop here. Big portions of herring, good selection of vodka. Located across the street from the American consulate, one block off the old town market square. Order at the bar and find a table...to sit at. English menus available.More
