About
Kawaleria Restaurant was established as a result of a compilation of my family tradition, personal passion for horses and love for good food. In the 1920s, my great-grandfather was commandant of the Cavalry School in Grudziądz. I grew up in an atmosphere of old customs, hence eagerness to create a place where years of splendor of the Cavalery would return once again. Together with our Chef Grzegorz Godzik, we propose Polish cuisine. Our main goal is to combine traditional flavors of noble manors with modern trends. Cavalier men were famous for their passion for good food and original liquors, which has become our leitmotif. It would be a real pleasure to welcome you in my restaurant – Magdalena

Absolutely 5 star restaurant, from entering to leaving the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was the best we had in Krakow. Pulled pork and ribs were amazing and the apple pie and lemon tart delicious.

As a local I rarely eat at the city centre. Being downtown found a hidden place called "Kawaleria". Decided to give it a chance. Wasn't so hungry but a decent plate of pasta was on my mind. Penne with chicken was more than decent. Perfectly...cooked, chicken and dried tomatoes consisted perfect combination. Arugula and Grana Padana cheese on the top were perfect finish. Highly recommend.More

The place is beautiful and the food is delicious. It’s not on the main square so it’s very quiet as well. Amazing experience would come here again.

Fantastic venue for an interesting, authentic polish dinner. A warm welcome and friendly atmosphere, within a historic setting. The enthusiastic head waiter provided an in depth description of the menu and guided us to the local traditional dishes, which were both exceptional.

We tried here recently while in Krakow as it was close to the main square and rather quiet. We had dinner early, which is why I think it was a little on the quiet side, only a few tables were taken. We were seated very...quickly and our drinks orders taken. We opted for 3 courses starting with the wild boar perogies, which were delicious. The chicken main and chocolate fondant deserts were just as tasty. We found it to be very reasonably priced. For 3 courses with drinks and coffees for two people, it came to a little over £50, which we found to be a really good price for the quality of food and the location. Would highly recommend for food, service and atmosphere.More

This restaurant is a hidden gem, it is just off the main square. The host was so welcoming and engaging. The food was amazing, I would recommend the wild boar and the chocolate fondant, both were absolutely delicious. We had 2 mains, 2 desserts plus...wine and the bill was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this restaurant.More

Fantastic spot in a quiet side street, just one street away from the main Sq. Cosy and charming decor including old photographs of Polish cavalry from 1930's. We took a nice table in the window near the bar, but there were plenty of tables in...the two the rooms, or in the courtyard as well. Delicious food, and friendly and competent and multilingual staff - our waiter spoke German, French and English. We ended up spending our whole evening there. We also tried Polish red wine, and were very happy with our choice. Absolutely worth trying for Polish cuisine with less fatty content!More

This was our first meal of our visit to Krakow. The 5* reviews on TripAdvisor are completely justified. We had a delicious, Polish meal, which compared to UK prices was extremely good value. The waiter was very polite and friendly. The restaurant is slightly off...the main streets, so might be a little quiet mid-week but that suited us. Highly recommended.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
