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

Although Restaurant Ogniem i Mieczem is a little trashy, it's great fun and doesn't take itself too seriously. We usually wouldn't enjoy somewhere like this but something about this place made it really good experience. The food is also excellent if you want big, hearty portions. Everything was delicious especially the pig's knuckle. The staff are very friendly too. Wouldn't... More

Nice traditional restaurant, wooden tables and benches, Polish dishes of which the sour soup is delicious. They also serve 1/2 meter spare ribs, which were nice too! And try the "pigwy" Vodka (quince), it's delicious!

Hi there I can't comment in the food, sadly I had booked to visit this restaurant only to find when we pulled up that it was shut! Had really looked forward to sampling traditional food, but alas it was not meant to be on this trip. Will just have to try and visit again sometime.

Thank Ann M

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
