After you find it you are in a fairy tale. A self-service restaurant with traditional Polish food. Delicious and great value for money. Nice and charming decors. Well worth a visit.

Nice restaurant with a lot of space on three floors. Good food for reasonable price. You can quickly reach the city centre from this point or hoop on the theater.

We visited this place for lunch after arriving. It is not the easiest to find but follow the signs and you should find it. It is self service. The lady serving was not very helpful but look past all of that as the food is delicious and great value for money. The potato soup with sausage was delicious. You order... More

Such a strange little place, well hidden away and you wouldn't find it unless you had been told about it! We really weren't sure if we were in the right place as you go through a big, old building (a museum or something) and then out into a courtyard and down into a basement. On creeping through the door, we... More

Cute restaurant underneath a university. Hidden away but worth the trouble to find. Cheap meals, fast service. Get the zurek soup or onion soup. And the Hungarian Pancakes! The potato pancakes come with roast meat in a delicious stew. We went again the next night and I got the budapest style pancakes but they were no where near as good.

Nice traditional Polish restaurant. There a couple of Babcia Malina in Krakow. I was in the Slakowska Ulica. You have to go under stairs and you find the restaurant. Is a kind of selfservice, you order and sit, and then they call your number and your food. Menus are writen in English and Polish. Nice Polish decoration and very nice... More

My wife and I visited here to try the Perogies for the first time. We ordered as per the servers recommendations the mixed Perogies platter which were promptly delivered and were lovely. The only negative was the unhelpful attitude of the woman working at the upstairs serving area.

Great decor with multiple pictures of famous boxers and actors who have visited this establishment. Food is served very quickly and you will find all Polish specialties in this restaurant. Food is authentic with significant portions, recommend Pierogi Ruskie and Zurek :) Enjoy!

I did a quick Google search on where to go for decent pierogi in Kraków and was pointed to this hidden charm of a place! The entrance to this restaurant is somewhat tucked away, so when you do spot the signage make sure you do open up that huge door that seems to lead into a hallway. The restaurant is... More

Once again made this a place to eat during our second visit to Kraków this year. Good quality traditional food, service was a little quick however, no gap at all between courses. The meal was over and done within half an hour of ordering two courses. Still, it remains on the list!
