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

I don't understand how this hotel can have a 4,5 rating! Unpleasant staff who have no idea what they're doing and filthy rooms was what we experienced during our stay. Thank god we only stayed two nights! The only plus side was the location. You will most probably find a better quality hotel with the same central location and value.... 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

Situated just off the main square this restaurant is a real gem. It has an outside and inside eating area. The food is of the highest quality, I had Fillet steak and my wife the pork. The portions were good and cooked to perfection. They were also beautifully well presented. They also gave us a free salmon appetiser to start.... More

I have invited a colleague from Germany for a company dinner, Everything was perfect. Good foods, good wines from France and from Poland. He was astonished of the quality of Herbowe, the polish wine. The foods were exactly cooked, nice taste and nice presentation. The staff was very efficient with a lot of tactfulness.

We were handed a leaflet on our way to the main square Which is around the corner. The menu variety caught our attention so agreed to eat there. We went downstairs loving the decor. We ordered a main each but they were generous giving us various tapas style tasters as a starter. The main courses were sublime and you would... More

Cordial service and high quality food. Presentation was excellent as was choice from the dessert trolley. Main course duck was exquisite with wonderful accompanying sauces. The duck breast portion itself was very small, but all in all, we enjoyed ourselves.
