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!

I was there couple of times and the only thing i can say that food is really nice, you have feeling like you eat home made dishes. But the level of service when waiters can not smile, can not make any advise on what i can choose. I had a feeling that i am more in some of canteen but... More

We were recommended this as a "cheap place" to grab a meal by a street market seller. Took us a while to find it as it is perfectly hidden, even though right across the national theatre. Once you enter you feel like you are in a strange old-fashioned fast food place, but once (let the valet wearing a cyllinder hat... More

Well worth a visit for some hearty Polish food just like my mother in law used to make. This is not fine dining, but not a canteen either. The food comes when it's ready and you collect it yourself from the bar. The decor is eclectically kitch. We ate here with three kids under 8 and all enjoyed the food.

This is my 'go-to' place in Kraków. Starters and main courses are great wholesome home cooked style Polish food. You will never leave hungry and like me will probably keep coming back :-) Highly recommended.

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
