For a dish of breakfast nothing special they charged me what you pay for a normal meal in any restaurant. I think they overcharge you if they think you are a tourist or visitor and not a local. You do not pay that amount for...breakfast in 90% of the rest of the places.More

It is sad because this place was closed down about two years ago. It was a nice restaurant with its unique decor. We loved it. The food was delicious, many dishes to choose from. Prices acceptable - could be compared to any similar restaurant in...Krakow.More

A really good restaurant, best pasta disk I've eaten in a long time. We were four in the company and all of us enjoyed the food.

They have few dishes that are my favorite. Food is good, location and interior charming. Fun and pleasant staff. Worth a visit.

It is not often that I visit a restaurant and experience such a slow and indifferent service. We waited more than and hour for the food while after almost 50 minutes of waiting we were told that some dishes were out. Even the bread that...we order came with the main dishes. We were on the edge of leaving when we finally got the food. Well, nothing to write home about… :(More

We stumbled across this little gem on our first day in Krakow, and enjoyed it so much the first time, we went back a second. The food was delicious, and the service fairly prompt, albeit a bit inflexible. We were early diners, so the atmosphere...was slightly lacking on both of he nights we were there. Would recommend this place to anyone I know who is coming to krakow.More

Just happened across this cute little restaurant on Monday night as we were looking for somewhere to dine in the old town! We were so pleased on entering such a quirky setting and wereseated by a nice waiter. He took our order of bruschetta to...share, to start, which he offered to serve on 2 plates, pork kebab for my husband and the rissoto with salami for my mains. We ordered a bottle of Soave Classico and some sparkling water.Wine was served and we settled back to enjoy and wait for our starter, that's when we began to realize the meaning of "slow" food the wait was unbelievably long, and the restaurant was not busy, no apologies, then our mains arrived straight after the starter.My risotto though perfectly cooked was destroyed by being over salty so much so I couldn't finish it. We finished with a pannacotta for me, my first choice of tiramasu was gone, my husband had the raspberries with cream, food was tasty just such a pity about the service!!More

Lovely food, questionable service. My family had been here before a few years ago and loved it, but were left a little disappointed by this visit. We were a large group so we expected a bit of a wait, but considering we'd told the restaurant...our starters in advance and that there were no other diners that night we were disappointed to be left waiting over an hour for them to arrive. We also weren't offered drinks, and the waitress spoke quite rudely to us (unintentionally I'm sure, probably due to the language barrier, although this wasn't a problem with any of the other Polish people we met that week!) Also the metal chairs were hard and grew uncomfortable considering the long wait for food, and my aunt had to ask for extra cushions. We were also shocked to discover when the bill arrived that we'd been charged more than £30 for the jugs of water which were on the table when we sat down and refilled without our permission. However, the food itself was great and this restaurant would probably be fine for a couple or a small group!More

I gave this little place a 5 star review a couple of years ago, and last night decided to visit again. For a Sunday night the place was surprisingly empty while the two restaurants either side were packed. My Ewe's cheese with cranberry starter arrived...and immediately I noticed that it seemed very dry, almost to the point of being stale. My main course again was very dry, almost overcooked and very disappointing. I normally stay for a couple of glasses of wine and a dessert, but decided to leave. I hope this is a 'one off' because it has such a superb atmosphere and the service is excellent.More

About 50 people from a conference descended on Cherubino for it's conference meal. Considering we packed the place out, the staff managed very well to serve us all quickly, without fuss. Our meal was good, and the surroundings atmospheric - cobbled floors and all. The...food was good, and a photographer at the conference took pictures, which are nice memories and give a good impression of how the restaurant looks and feels.More

Im so glad I didnt wear heels. This is a quirky place with original cobbled floors. Be sure to pick a table with an even floor! Theres also two carriages in the room. The pierogi with meat challenged my husband as there were 8 pieces....Although delicious this was really a starter to share. Our only complaint was that the main course came immediately after the starter. We would have liked at least a few minutes to digest the first course. My pork shashlik (kebab) was excellent. Its not the cheapest restaurant in Krakow but it was very enjoyabeMore

Wonderful variety of foods. Had spinach, ricotta dumplings in Parmesan sauce, fettuccine with shrimp for my husband. Very tasty, economical and waitstaff could not have been better. Slightly off the square. Will be here 3 days plan to go back!

I'm not a big restaurant reviewer, but I've eaten at Cherubino several times in the last 8 years, and each time the experience has been consistently good--better than average on Trip Advisor's scale. The rooms are furnished with lots of antiques, including old carriages, a...sleigh, and a boat. There weren't a lot of other diners when I was here at the end of May, also. Cherubino serves traditional Polish and some Italian dishes. I think I've ordered pierogi every time. My Polish friend usually gets liver. My cousin ordered lasagna and said it was very good. We usually get a couple glasses of wine, and the prices are reasonable. Service is always helpful and polite. This restaurant is very close to Hotel Pod Rosa.More

Best pork kebab ever and I'm from Iowa. A little pricey but the side street outdoor patio, excellent service and the food justifies it. Just a block from the main square. Side note on the pricey comment: It only seemed pricey compared to the other...meals in Krakow which were surprisingly reasonable.More
