For a NYE dinner it was likely average. The only good thing they served was the soup. The rest of the dishes were mediocre. We got the value of our money from the alcohol which we had over and over as it was all you...can drink. So we tried to get the value of our money from that. For almost 600 zloty per person, the NYE dinner wasn't worth it at all. If we knew it was that simple, we could've gone somewhere else and spent less money on better food. Nevertheless, thankful enough we got drunk.More

We stumbled across this place while looking for somewhere to eat on our second night in Krakow. The front entrance is unassuming but when you enter the restaurant it’s very beautiful and quirky! The food was also one of our best meals in Krakow and...at a good price. The place wasn’t too busy so we didn’t feel rushed, and the staff were attentive and helpful. We’ll definitely return on our next trip.More

This is just off the main square in the old town. Don’t be put off by the signage, as it really doesn’t represent the restaurant or do the restaurant any favours. Inside, it is a lovely old-fashioned restaurant, with a really lovely atmosphere. The staff...were lovely and incredibly helpful. The menu was full of choice, particularly for vegetarians, and had some traditional dishes on the menu. The food was served quickly, with good portions, and was incredibly tasty. It was also good value for money - just under £50 for 3 courses each with drinks. I would highly recommend a visit here, and would also recommend the pear spritzer as that was divine!More

We came here for a late lunch/early dinner. It was really good value for money for just off the market square but surprisingly empty! We had soup (very nice) and toast with blood sausage (also very nice) as starters then pork chop (actually more like...schnitzel) (nice but salty) and broad bean and mushroom filled pierogi (decent) for mains. Service was fast and friendly and the rooms within the building are worth a quick look too if you can!More

Mart says : "Among the many average but expensive restaurants, Pod Gruszką is an exception. A delicious beef burger, Polish traditional soups such as broth or sour soup, melt-in-your-mouth herring or homemade Russian dumplings with a wide range of world wines, make you want to...stay there. Stylish decor of the old building with wooden stairs and very polite waiters are an additional value. Good location in the center of Cracow, near Sukiennice." Viv adds : "A very special thought for the two amazing ladies that recommended that place to us, in the very heart of the touristic center... They were at it for 15 minutes! Also, Zurek rules. We will be back."More

This restaurant is not as obvious as others in the square as it’s upstairs. The doorman insisted it serves the best food in Kraków and I suspect he’s not wrong! All made from scratch, the food is basically Polish with some specialties from the wider,...historical region of Galicia. The interior is old style, cosy and welcoming and the service warm and friendly. Highly recommended!More

Visited in September 2021 with my husband. This became our favorite restaurant in Krakow for ambiance, service, and meal choices. It was just wonderful to be able to be seated at a window that opened up to the Old Town Square. We came back a...second time with a group of six, not recommended by us but my friend, and the experience was just as great. Journalists and writers frequent this restaurant. If you are lucky, you may run into well known scholars from Poland.More

We very nearly passed by this restaurant with tables outside that is located just off the Old Town Square but we're so very glad we didn't. A gentle introduction to Polish food that will remain one of my favourite memories. The food was delicious ,...freshly prepared and beautifully flavoured. Our server was very helpful, even funding a blanket for my daughter as night fell before suggesting we move upstairs. So glad we did - a very historic and characterful building with lovely views of the square. Shared a desert with an Irish Coffee and cocktail for daughter. Restful place well worth a visitMore

What a place, what a service… we’ve had the best NYE party in years. The food was simply amazing, the staff were phenomenal, friendly, and professional. If you happen to be on holiday in Krakow and don’t know where to go for a nice evening...meal, go to Pod Gruszka. You won’t regret it. A massive shout out to the manager Mrs Sabina.
