We visited on a recommendation from friends who had visited earlier in the year. We were not disappointed. As duck is what the restaurant is famous for that’s what we had and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The restaurant was quiet due to the ongoing pandemic...but if and when things get back to normal if you are in Kraków then this is an excellent option in the City centre.More

Great restaurant, very busy do booking advises. The duck was great, very tasty and great value. Service was a little slow but the waitress acknowledged this and gave us free deserts without us prompting. Definitely worth a visit, very close to old town square.More

We went here our first night. The food was amazing a great introduction to our first night in Poland. It’s the beat meal I have had in Europe. The staff was friendly, and very gracious. Everything came out in a timely manner. It was very...clean and had a very nice vibe. The prices were great for the gourmet meals that we received. We could not have been more satisfied with the meal, the drinks or the staff. I don’t have one even slightly negative thing to say about this place. This is a must stop if you’re in the area!More

Saw this prior to traveling as being highly rated and immediately spotted the full roast duck to share. The restaurant is down a passageway and has an outside and indoor section. The service at start was pretty slow but to be fair the place was...busy. Food service was more expeditious and the whole duck carved in front of us looked and smelled amazing! The accompaniments were a tad bland and disappointing but the duck was full of flavour. Felt like this had so much more potential and left slightly underwhelmed. Overall a good meal and no real complaints especially value for money wise, just felt could have been so much more with some elevated side dishes.More

We came here for a classic Polish meal found it. This place offers all the traditional staples, although they specialize in roasted duck plates. We tried the roasted duck salad, the bigos, and the lemonade and found all our choices to be tasty. Portions were...large enough that we left full with just the two entrees. I feel like the prices were commiserate with the quality of the meal.More

The food was outstanding. All four of us in our family group including a teenager who can be fickle when it comes to sampling foreign cuisine enjoyed the various dishes of traditional Polish food. The atmosphere was pleasant and our waitress was highly attentive and...efficient. We would happily return to the Black Duck.More

We had looked at the menu online and decided that we must try this restaurant. I booked a table on 2 occasions on our week break. From the moment we sat down till we left on both occasions it was amazing. The first night it...was a but slow in having our order taken but we just sat, talked and took in the amazing atmosphere. We opted for the spicy dumplings, full stuffed duck and water. We were given bread and duck pate for an appetiser, was amazing. Dumplings were again lovely, spicy but lovely flavouring. Along came the duck served with potatoes and Silesian dumplings and red cabbage. It all came served on a platter and the lady cit it in on half and served it on to each plate. Oh my word what can I say, the most succulent duck we have ever had. Once finished we were given a shot of flavour vodka. All of this for only 145zloty We decided that we would definitely be visiting again, once again we had the same menu, and when you think things cant get better, oh my it was. The night was quite chilly and they had blankets to use on the chairs. The lady serving was very polite and friendly. We will definitely be coming back on our next visit to Kraków and highly recommend this restaurant to everyone.More

My wife and I have recently returned from our first visit to Krakow and we were eager to try a different restaurant each evening however, such was the quality and value of the food here, we returned twice. We opted for spicy dumplings as a...starter followed by the full stuffed duck for our main course. They were absolutely delicious and amazing value for money. The restaurant has a lovely outside dining area which is so chilled out at the end of a busy day of sight seeing. We can't recommend this place highly enough and will definitely be back to Krakow and The Black Duck very soon.More

Not really... they had a portable one (more of a fan) standing near the door, but that was about it.
