The food was superb. Beautifully presented, fresh and excellent quality. Service was perfect. Great ambiance, in a 17th century cellar. This is highly recommended. Two main courses, one desert, three glasses of wine came to about 400PLN - great value.

Downstairs in a cellar-like setting, it is interesting. With candles and very polite staff, it is quite romantic place for couples. The food is very good, we tried scallops and turbot. The amount of the portion s quite satisfactory. The wine list is not very...rich but we could find a suitable white to our taste.More

The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. The food is incredible. We got the tasting menu with the wine pairing. Each course was perfectly cooked. The wine pairing matches each course wonderfully. The beef tartare was our favorite dish by far. The flavors and preparation were divine....The exposed brick and candlelit tables gave a romantic ambiance. Our waiter was very kind gave great service. We are excited to return again and experience this amazing restaurant.More

We had the duck confit and beef cheek's Burgundy. Also with some oysters. Everything was perfect - would have preferred some hot sauce with oysters however. But service, cleanliness and food is absolutely 5/5

Firstly, the ambience and service at Cyrano's was impeccable. The restaurant is set in an incredibly atmospheric high-ceilinged cellar and strewn with antiques and tapestries. I read about the history of the site in the menu (and suggest you do, too) and have no doubt...that every single piece has its own history. But we didn't come here for a museum tour, we came for the food, and top-priced food at that. What did we find? Beef tartare. Lovely accompaniments but the beef was ground too fine. It was more like supermarket mince than hand-chopped tartare and, as a result, the flavour suffered greatly. Sorry to say, this one is below even Lidl pre-packaged tartare, which has a chunkier, more satisfying texture. Tortellini with shrimp. Really, it could have been anything pale in the filling: chicken, turkey, pork. There was no taste of shrimp at all. The filling was too pasty for my liking and the tortellini dough was stale, thick and overworked. This was not the creation of a confident chef, but someone who is not quite sure and trying something out. It didn't work. Duck confit. Duck is already a dense meat, so the last thing we expected was to see it deboned and compressed into a cylinder. Confit is supposed to be melt-in-your-mouth tender, but, here, the confit was too dry, something I thought would be impossible to achieve. It was a chore to eat. The potato it sat on was nice. Beef cheeks. The hit of the meal. Rich, gelatinous, flavourful, and the marinated red onion slices atop the smooth potato mash were lovely. When the waiter asked us about our meal, we were very honest with our feedback, and I expected a chef to come out and discuss our criticisms, but nobody emerged. Not confident enough? Didn't care? The restaurant was more three-quarters empty at the time (we prefer to dine during slow periods), so time pressure isn't a valid excuse. For a restaurant of this supposed quality, I expect more engagement with the chef. This isn't McDonald's. My partner also complained that he couldn't even see the food properly because of the low lighting. It did bother me a little, although not as much. One would think there is a middle-ground between "I'm paying a hundred for this meal but can't see it!" and the usual blinding "you are paying a hundred for this meal so look at every part of it!" at even high-end Chinese restaurants. The menu says that Cyrano's was awarded the Golden Jackdaw for being the best restaurant in the region...in 1997. That was more than twenty-five years ago. Which probably explains the tortellini.More

We went to Cyrano de Bergerac for our summer holiday in Krakow, and out of all the good meals we had that week, this was the best one! The restaurant is very cosy with its grotto-like atmosphere, and candles romantically lit up all the tables....The service was great, with the server being very attentive and sweet. The food was absolutely amazing! I had the lobster bisque as a starter, and my partner had the sweetbread. We both had the beef Wellington for the main, and it is the best beef Wellington I have ever had! I can still remember how good it was, and I hope to go to Krakow again soon just to eat here again. Overall, it was a great night with great food and staff, and we would absolutely recommend it and would love to visit Cyrano de Bergerac again. We also recommended it to some of our friends who travelled to Krakow recently, and they also loved it.More

Fabulous service and attentive staff. The food was out of this world and we had a lovely evening. This was the final and very best of the restaurants we ate at in Krakow. We had researched various restaurants and booked in advance before travelling. It’s...not the cheapest in Krakow but worth it. I would highly recommend visiting this wonderful restaurant.More

Amazing restaurant. We booked online and had a lovely meal. I had the beef wellington and my mum had the halibut, both were to die for. Gorgeous intimate setting with original features and nice atmosphere. Very attentive but not intrusive. Thank you for an evening...to remember. Michelin star meal at a fraction of the price.More

This was an amazing French meal. One of the best Tartare I have ever eaten, the mushroom soup is also highly recommended. The location, the service and everything really was top notch. Not the restaurants fault, but another diner left with my jacket which put...a downer on the evening, however the restaurant did all they could to try contact the guests to come back, to no avail :( It is a pity as this was one spectacular experience for us in Krakow.More
