Fantastic fine dining in this delightful restaurant. We has three courses and each course was a joyous delight of Polish flavours. Service was friendly and efficient. Good selection of wines. Incredible value. Really enjoyed our visit.

The location of this was just off the main old town square. It could not have been a better setting as it was quiet, slightly out of the way and therefore we were able to get a table without prior booking. The service was excellent...and we were catered for throughout. We were given menus promptly and our orders were taken in a timely fashion so that we were not sat waiting and pondering for too long. We had soup for a starter. If was very tasty and there was enough in there for us to share one dish. For mains, we had the half a duck and also the beef cheeks. The duck was cooked very well and was very tasty. The sides were very complimenting and the whole dish was filling but extremely large portion sized. The beef cheek was tender and cooked well again. It was flavoured very nicely and really a good choice for food here. I would suggest anyone in the area to come here as the food and service is well worth it.More

I booked this restaurant for my 40th Birthday meal when visiting Krakow, we had the best time. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Magdalena helped arrange everything, from flowers on the table, to Champagne on arrival. The service from the two male...waiters, was exceptional. The boar dumpling starter were amazing and the mint chocolate cheesecake was so nice. We ended the meal with a vodka paddle recommended by Valdick, this was a fun end to a good meal. Very clean restaurant and good service from friendly staff. I would recommend this restaurant to every visiting Krakow who is after traditional Polish food.More

We were recommended to go to the restaurant by our host, so we decided to try it. On arrival we were asked if we had booked and thought that there wouldn't be room but we were given a table tucked in a corner so thought...we were lucky. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and there were many different historical pictures and artifacts hanging on the walls. The food was good and my friends really enjoyed what they had.More

We stumbled upon this restaurant as we wandered the streets of Krakow. The two delightful men who served us Vladik and Tleksey were so friendly, taking great pride in explaining the history of the photographs on all the walls. My husband's (not so) Irish Coffees...with Kaluha and Brandy were exceptional as I enjoyed the wine. We sat at the bar and the food I ordered was excellent. The Vodka tasting was great fun and we had a terrific evening. Thank you, we will be back!More

When we walked in it was empty as well. We had as a starter pierogi which were really boring in taste and too price for 6 pieces / size in our opinion. As main we had the beef cheeks - which were super tender but...really boring in taste. It was good but tasteless in our opinionMore

Arrived at our hotel next to this little gem very late so didnt sit down u til gone 9PM. There was nobody else in there at the time but the staff were more than accommodating. It is lovely and clean with a nice cosy atmosphere....My partner went for the BBQ pork ribs with chips and cabbage which he absolutely devoured and I went for the vegetarian spinach and buckwheat pancakes with salad after reading the reviews on here and I was certainly not disappointed! Lovely food and good service which made our first impressions of Krakow very good! Would definitely come back, the menu looked lovely and was very fairly priced.More

I would like to underline all the negative points of our dinner. We booked at the end of November, we send the payment of 13 euros and over the phone someone of you told me it was to block the table so we thought it...was going to be part of the bill at the end of the dinner and was not... 13 euros for bookin fee, really?? We arrived and we had the last table, next to the kitchen and the bathroom and next to all the tables with groups. I ask a lady to talk to the manager if it was possible to have a better table and no one came (even the manager) to ask if there was any problem or to try to resolve my request. So the point to pay in advance is just to have a ‘welcome glass of Prosecco???’’ It is not working like this guys, I was so nervous yesterday because of your rudeness, I spent the last night in 2019 in bad way I could imagine.More

No booking was necessary but it will depend on how busy the place is. Booking is possible so it might be sensible to pre-arrange a table just to be certain. Like most places last orders tend to be circa 10pm
