We enjoyed this restaurant- cozy and authentic place, interested decorations, wooden furniture, quiet, tasty food. In my opinion the dishes were very large, well done and cheap, good interesting menu. It is self-service, so you should come and order. I think this place is absolutely worth visiting!

Perfect location, not so high prices, very nice staff and a lot of great meals - typical Polish food, different types of meat, great desserts and soups. Sometimes you have to wait because they have a lot of people usually but it is really worth to wait.

Having been told about the place for ages, I went last Saturday with some friends, the you girl on the door was so kind and told us that, without having booked in advance, we should get a table, order and then wait, as a kind of self-service. Saying out loud that she doesn't speak English was the first thing the... More

Excellent food, very professional and efficient service. The restaurant located on Szpitalna 38 is my favourite place for Polish food! Reservation during the weekend a must.

We were recommended this 'milk bar' by both a friend & a blogger. If you want to experience the more rustic side of Krakow then make a visit here, especially for lunch. Now finding it is a different story, we luckily saw a small round old wooden sign outside some great big wooden doors that lead you into what can... More

We visited the place as it was proposed by our Dk travel guide.The place was creepy with porcelain dolls all over,but we could withstand that.The worst of all was the food which was really awful! Everything from the soups to the main dishes was microwave prepared! Not to mention the prices, because we what we ate was unacceptable and worthless!

I am Polish and used to study in Cracow. 5,10 years ago it was great place, simple but fast self service, "tastes like made at home" food. Today I went there and was very sad to realize: it is a dump...The decor used to be kitschy but fun, now it is just bunch of outdated, put together pieces - no... More

Let me just say I will go back to Krakow just to be able to try the perogies from here one more time. I tried 3 types of perogies and it has been the best ive ever tried. I will say it is confusing. Keep in mind that it is self service but downstaris is a sit down restuarant. I... More

Sorry, but first I have to point out that I experienced the worst service in Kraków in that restaurant. The waitresses basically appeared to be annoyed by every single order. "Thank you" and "you are welcome" seemed to be not part of their vocabulary, neither in English nor in Polish. The food was ok and the atmosphere pretty nice. But... More
