My husband & I came upon this restaurant after trying another restaurant nearby which fortunately for us was fully booked! What a gem of a restaurant, I can honestly say this was one of the best meals I’ve had. I chose the sirloin steak which which was cooked to absolute perfection. The sauce was amazing too, a rarity I’ve found when eating out. The service was brilliant & little touches like homemade bread & crudités with our pre-dinner drinks were much appreciated. I would definitely recommend this restaurant & come back if & when we return to Krakow.

Exactly 12 months on we booked a meal for 6 at this restaurant for 8pm, the service from start to finish was nothing more than superb. For starters we had frogs legs and mushroom soup (not in the same dish). And for mains we had beef tournedos,

Lovely atmosphere and inspired menu right on the main square makes for a lovely first impression. The menu was varied with a strong French influence. Service was effective but a little "cold" in approach. We ate escargot and boullabaisse for starters and rabbit and vegetarian ravioli for mains. All very tasty with nice touches like mixed bread and crudités delivered on arrival. A bit overpriced compared to other restaurants we visited in the city especially the wine.

The restaurant has a good location for tourists, it is in the main square, its usually very busy in the weekends so I went on a Wednesday afternoon. The service was alright, but I was one of the few people around so can’t really judge that. I ordered a soup and was amazing, and a duck as the main course which was very dry for my taste. I would definitely go back to have the soup and try their own polish wine.

Stopped off for a meal late in the evening service was fantastic and very quick. Food quality was amazing had mushroom risotto and sirloin beef stroganoff both were very tasty. Would recommend trying, we sat outside and had an amazing view of market square and cloth hall. Reasonably priced for quality of food.

A wonderful evening spent in this Michelin guide restaurant on the corner of Old Town. Whilst the food wasn’t exceptional (somewhat under seasoned) the sommelier was wonderful. He checked the Chateaux Neuf du Pape and knew immediately it was corked. I know this isn’t going to change the world but it was just so well done and added to the evening.

Worst food in Krakow. If you haven't been to a good Italian or French restaurant you may like this place, if you have it's pretty awful. I returned my main. It didn't help that this was by far the most expensive restaurant we'd been to in the city.

We had a dinner booked for 2. the booking process was very easy with very nice and helpful staff making the reservation. The place is very nice, full of history and nice atmosphere inside. Food was very nice (however I would not necessarily give them a Michelin star), above average but not exceptional. Wine selection was very good with some very nice Israeli wine on offer. I would normally give 4-5 stars if not for the se service. The waiter looking after us was showing with all his being that he really doesn't want to be there. I don'y know if he had bad time back home or had very bad hangover. It doesn't matter. He was trying to be professional but at the level of motorway bar rather then Michelin star restaurant. No description of the food offered, menu given without the word, overall impression of embodiment of boredom. It is acceptable in McDonnalds perhaps but not in restaurant with ambitions. If you want to have Michelin Star experience - don't go to Szara Restaurant.

Dear [Szara Resto&bar] Management, I am writing to provide feedback on the poor service I experienced at your cafe this morning. Firstly, I noticed that the waitresses had a rather unpleasant attitude. They appeared disinterested and were not attentive to the customers' needs. Furthermore, their behavior towards me in particular was rather rude, which made me feel unwelcome and undervalued as a customer. What was even more concerning was the way my inquiries were neglected. When I tried to order something, I was met with indifference and my questions went unanswered. As a customer, I believe it is essential to receive prompt and courteous service, and Unfortunately, my experience at your cafe was bad and frustrating. I hope you will take a corrective action regarding this situation and make it up to me because it is customer's right to have a pleasant experience with family where they spent money for delivering the standard of service they are expected.

Dear Sirs, we would like to explain what this situation looked like from our side. At the entrance to our outdoor seating there are two signs informing you to wait for the place to be indicated. Nevertheless, you came in without waiting for a table, started to move the tables yourself and brought your drinks. The waitress, due to the high traffic in the restaurant and the lack of time, allowed you to drink your own drinks, which we almost never do, she suggested breakfast and explained which dishes do not contain pork. After placing the order, you did not raise any objections. On our part, it's hard to talk about mistakes in waiter service - we leave it to your subjective assessment. Best regards.

My wife and I arrived late I the evening in Krakow and came across Szara whilst walking the main Square. It’s brilliant situated & quite subtle. First thing that hits you is the interior, it’s stunning inside. We were seated promptly, no booking but there was no issue. Drinks were taken immediately, their cocktails menu was great. I went for an apple mojito, never had one before & it was delicious. My started was beef tartare, again delicious but nothing that I hadn’t had before. My wife in the other hand had the goats cheese and beetroot starter which was incredible & by far the best goats cheese dish I’d ever eaten. Mains I went off piste and ordered rabbit. I’ve only ever had it in Spain before and it wasn’t great so it was a risk but it paid off. The meat was full of flavour, juicy and also quite filling. The sauce was epic & it came with gnocchi and veg which soaked it all up. My wife had the “leg of lamb” which was a shank that came with a goats cheese Chèvre sauce. I’ll be honest when it came out it was the best looking plate but again it tasted incredible! I was going to miss dessert as I was quite full but my wife talked me in to the crème brûlée and I’m so glad she did as it was the best I’ve had. My only criticism and it’s a small one was that toward the end of the meal I just wanted a glass of water. I asked and the waiter explained we had no water left from the bottle I bought, I asked if I could just get a glass from the tap to which he seemed a little standoffish and put out by it. Was just a small thing but a bit dissapointing after such a great meal. Aside from that it was great, food was superb and I’d recommended the restaurant to anyone looking for a great dinner in Krakow.

I’ve had the good fortune to visit Krakow on numerous occasions over recent years, for work and leisure. Whenever possible i will eat at Szara, easily my favourite restaurant, not only in Krakow but full stop! The food is always amazing, the restaurant itself is beautiful, staff are attentive and the atmosphere is gentrified without being stuffy. This place is the benchmark for anyone thinking of eating at the Square in Krakow, others are good for sure, but this is by far the best!

We ate there at lunch so only wanted light bites and thus not sure we tried their signature dishes. But what we had was very nice and to a high standard and service was good. In hindsight I would suggest going here in the evening and getting a table outside.

Enjoyed our meal, with excellent service. Appetisers were good - fish soup, and prawns in garlic, then steak cooked to perfection. My only criticism was the duchess potatoes which were only slightly warm, they should be served hot. Excellent tiramisu. Nice wine list ££

Outstanding sea bream and dessert. Looked fantastic. Would pay much more in the UK for such quality. Especially delicious cheesecake with great service and a great ceiling to match. We were a walk in on a Saturday night. I made the mistake of ordering my cheesecake with everything else - which resulted in my partner not being offered one. Was reluctant to share such a treat. I'd also suggest dressing up a little as I arrived in a t-shirt and did feel out of place. Our overall bill was 300 Zlotys - around £60 for fine dining for two is fine by me.

We had outdoor seats right next to the square and enjoyed the people watching. Our first course was white asparagus with salmon and it was sensational. That was followed by trout with a spinach mixture that was the star of the dish. Service was efficient and professional. My wife thought it was one of the finest places we ate during the trip and I could not disagree.
