We came here twice during our trip to Kraków. I loved the food, especially the potato pancakes with meat. The restaurant in nice and cosy with a wooden interior. We ate upstairs in the self service area as it felt more relaxed and cosy.

We had a lot of delicious food when we were in Kraków, but easily my favourite were the potato pancakes with meat (placki ziemniaki z mięsem) which I ate at U Babci Maliny. Accompanied by a very tasty bowl of wild mushroom soup and washed down with a tall glass of Okocim, this was definitely a meal to remember. The... More

If you want to experience authentic polish food this is the place. This is where all the locals go for their breakfast, lunch and dinner. And who knows better about best polish food than the locals itself. Be sure to you have the address and looked it on map once before going there. It is quiet hard to find without... More

Unfortunately, this restaurant was very disappointing despite coming through the recommendation. Upon arrival nobody greeted us. Having stood in the hall for a while finally waitress has acknowledged us. We were taken to the round table which was stained from the previous customer and received menus to look at. At this point, I thank the waitress and asked to change... More

This place is a little hard to find...but worth the search. This is where the locals go for sure. The decor made you feel as if you were in someone's house -- very cozy and comfortable. The staff were friendly and help us navigate the menu. What a value....my Mother-in-law and I had an amazing meal which were very reasonably... More

If you look for something different but typical this is it. Completely old school environment, self service, common tables and typical Polish food such as pierogi and just few steps from the Main square. Very old grandma style decoration.

In a hidden place and a very nice and warm ambience, we found this particular restaurant. Good prices, grand-mother's food style. We liked it a lot.

One of the best zurek and fried meat pierogi that you will ever eat! The restaurant has 2 locations in Kraków but I recommend the one next to the Juliusz Slowacki Theater - it has both self catering option (ground level) and the seating and being served as well (underground)

The restaurant itself is really quirky, the decor takes you back in time and some of the 'collections' they have are very interesting. A piano playing as you enter the basement creates a good ambiance and the staff we found to be friendly and helpful. The food sadly does take second place - granted it is really inexpensive and the... More
