Our taxi driver recommended this as a place where locals ate. It didn't disappoint. My daughter and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and our dinner. We walked and enjoyed our return trip. Our beer and ribs were delicious as were our salads.

Came here for dinner a few times. Food was generally very good, especially the Pierogi (highly recommend!) The staff could sometimes be a bit unattentive and the prices are quite expensive for Poland which is where this restaurant loses points unfortunately. Other then that, it's a great place for dinner if you are looking for Polish cuisine and want to... More

This restaurant is for people with big stomaches. The portions are so large that it is impossible to eat the whole one for ordinary woman and even for some men. That's why the prices are also quite high. The food is from Polish cuisine and it is generally very greasy. There is no choice of salads or other healthy food.... More

We lost our hope to ever find a good restaurant for our dinner after a long day in Krakow. Old town - too expensive, small boat-restaurants -- no prices. Went over the bridge, to the other part of town. Found our luck. FANTASTIC mood and excellent food. Tasty as hell! Acceptable prices. If ever we visit Krakow again, we would... More

Found this restaurant in our guide book it was a bit of a walk from the main square / attractions but well worth it. We went at lunchtime so it was fairly quiet but still had a good atmosphere. Food was traditional from the 1700, massive portions we could have shared the pork knuckle which was huge. Also think the... More

If you are looking for really tasty and good food, surrounded by a cool "medieval" vibe, you cannot miss this place. I've been to Krakow twice, and in both trips I paid this place a visit. The first time I could try the marinated beef (you only have it every now and then) and it was superb. I was surprised... More

We were a party of 21 and had prebooked the food and not disappointed as the presentation was excellent, The restaurant is old world with big wooden tables and benches very warm welcome after you have had the honey vodka to wet our appetite. The main course of spare ribs, veal, chicken skewers and lovely baked potatoes were mouth watering.... More

We will host you Honourable Dames and Sires, with a gladness in our hearts in the halls of a seventeenth century tavern with splendidly flavoursome food and drinks of all sorts. Our maids and lackey open the gate at noon and close them at 12 on dusk. Chy canst savour delicacies of the olden polish cuisine. And all these delicious bites should taste the finest when washed down with a quart of exquisite spirits. We will be delighted with your company. Thyncanst east in four chambers uniting ten dozen quests to the sounds of the ancient tunes of Poland, Lithuania and Ukraine. Crackling flames of blazing fire in the hearth will relocate thy back in time to the depths of Sienkiewicz's "With Fire and Sword". The letters of Scripture proclaim that when father and mother are no longer thy will listen thy uncle. Alas, as thy uncle, I tell you and swear a solenn oath that thou will not find more mouth-watering victuals and beverages in all the land of Poland and neither in Inflants. I now what I say stands true for I travelled the Inflants far and wide many a time
