Just off the main square, lots of character...bare walls, cosy, staff good. Very good little freebies before and after our meal. We went back again! Good menu choice.

We ate here on a couple of occasions, purely because the first night we ate there the meal was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the food on both occasions was fantastic. There is an excellent choice of food and for the adventurous you can even try snails and frogs legs, although there is more homely food available.... More

My husband & I stumbled across this place while doing some shopping. The food was phenomenal! The service was excellent. I ordered an onion soup which came with an onion jam which was amazing. My second course was tagliatelle with fresh vegetables. The pasta & vegetables were al dente(the way it should be) & the sauce was light & tasty.... More

This place is fantastic! I had a birthday meal with my girlfriend and was looked after very well! No groups of drunk Brits to be seen anywhere and the food was superb! I cannot recommend this place enough!

Very quiet when we visited this old coal storage cellar. The service was excellent and the food deserved a Michelin star. Unbelievable deserts and cheese choice - see photos.

Arguably the worst restaurant i tried this year.. First we had the choice to sit in an overheated cellar or an ugly terrasse with an unpleasant smell, but the real disapointment came with the food...simply a nightmare from the beginning to the end.. Of course what they serve has nothing to do whatsoever with French cuisine.. Level was so low... More

Had we not been given some good directions from a friend we could well have missed this restaurant which is tucked up an alleyway just off the old town square. We sat in the small courtyard which has seating for about 20 people but inside there is a very pleasant and atmospheric dining area downstairs. The food was good quality,... More

Restaurant situated just off the market square. Service was very good and the food was top class, the party of 4 of us each had a different choice from the quite extensive menu, a little dearer than some of the other restaurants in the area but well worth it.

Six of us were visiting Krakow for a week earlier this year and so on the last evening we decided to go to this Restaurant which we had had recommended to us. We were taken to our table which was beautifully laid, with linen tablecloth and serviettes. We sat in our own area but later the other table was occupied... More

Without a doubt the best food in Krakow and the best meal I've ever eaten. Limited choice for vegetarian main courses (one) which is disappointing but it was outstanding. We got given before our starters arrived, I had the chestnut soup which was incredible, a salmon mousse. Being veggie I gave this to a fish eating friend and they said... More
