Quite surprised at the quality of food and service. We all had different starters and mains and not one failed to impress us. I did not expect this level of good food. Highly recommend as is also well priced.

With a great little bar next door, for classic and local coctails and winter warming mulled wines and hot toddies - you can enjoy a pre dinner drink and then walk through to the restaurant without having to go back into the cold night air. The restaurant is elegantly locally styled, and waiting staff plenty and attentive with good English... More

But nothing more. The restaurant is in the city center on the main square, so most customers are tourists. In this way, the dishes are uneven and at the same time average quality.

We went there on a whim and we were very surprised at the quality of -everything!! Our waitress Kasia was amazing, nothing was any trouble. We sat in the window and it felt like we were in a cosy tuscan home the Polish food here is to die for. We had the Beef Cheeks and Duck Breasts and they were... More

A very nice Michelin-recommended restaurant in the heart of the Old City. Very service minded and attentive staff. Nice interior and atmosphere. Extremely good value for money - even though the sugar top of the creme brulee was soft.

I´ve been to Szara a few times in the past years and I do absolutely recommend it for bigger groups, as it has a nice atmosphere, and they consistently know how to handle a table of 9-10 people properly. They´ll come and ask if you would like a drink first, be open to whatever kind of evening you´d like with... More

Szara is located right in the heart of Krakow on the main square where you'd think this would be a tourist trap. But actually it isn't. It is a nice restaurant with vaulted ceilings and really nice staff. Menu is not huge but offers more than ample choice. The cod was slightly overcooked yet still tasty. Salmon tartare was very...

Our first night of a short three night visit and we ate at the Michelin recommend restaurant in the square, Szara. It was rated well and looked good. We were greeted quickly and seated at a very nice table by the window in the rear room. Despite it being a Monday the place was quite busy but not full. The... More
