This is the best restaurant we have been to in Krakow so far. It's in the basement so you feel like you found a hidden treasure. The environment is great, the pierogies are tasty and the staff is kind. It's a family run business so the food is made with love. They take cash only but it's worth it!

U Babci Maliny is a great restaurant near the main square in Kraków. The meals are big and cheap, and delicious! The most authentic Polish food we had in Poland. The roasted pierogi are delicious, and so were our other meals! As mentioned by others, the service is a little different in that you go to the counter to order... More

Excellent food and service, self-serve or restaurant style, at very reasonable price. If you want Polish food go here!!! We went back again!! (Sometimes it is referred to as The Raspberry Kitchen) Great atmosphere with old style furnishings.

We only had 3 nights here - we ate here 3 nights in a row because you just couldn't beat the value and the excellent food, great for large groups because you go up to pay 1 at a time. Greatest dumplings ever!

There are many people in here. The clerk was very rude and unkind. There was nothing i could eat, most food was running out. I ordered pork cuttlet and pierrogi? Pork cuttlet got burned pierrogi? was greecy; oily. Bad service, bad food. The food came out very quickly. 최악의 서비스, 최악의 음식 늦게 가긴 했지만 음식의 대부분이 동이 난 상태였습니다.... More

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
